Overwhelmed with diagnosis hsv2

I went to the doctor almost 3 weeks ago with difficulty urinating and a little irritating feeling at opening of vagina kinda like a yeast infection was going to start.   Had felt sluggish and not myself for the few days prior but after fever started went to dr next day.   Saw the PA she did urine test and said you have blood in urine and called it a UTI gave antibotic and diflucan with no pelvic exam that was on a Tuesday was out of work all week and returned to doctor on Saturday due to increased irritation in vaginal area and still running fever.   Saw another PA who again only did urine and labs and said UTI and yeast infection with no pelvic exam she changed the antibotic and prescribed more diflucan along with cream for external use.   By the following Thursday was feeling better no fever but still highly irritated down below and I was trying sitz bath with coconut oil tea tree oil baking soda salt anything to try and sooth it.   Went back to doctor on Thursday of week 2 and this time actually saw a doctor. The nurse was shocked that neither PA did exam down there!  So doc does visual exam I was to raw to do much but he suspected BV and swabbed for that got urine and blood for std panels. And started me on antibotic for BV.   I emailed to get lab results on Tuesday and doctor called to say BV was positive and HSV2 positive all other tests negative.   I cried all afternoon and night.   I was in committed relationship for over 5 years and now with someone new for almost a year so not sure if I got this from one of them or if I had it prior and just now had an outbreak as I have a lot of stress having lost my grandmother to cancer and then having surgery myself to discover the mass was precancerous and I have another mass on kidney that may be suspect. And nodules in my lung .   I am only 46 with 3 grown children.  What do I do now my current partner has been accepting of this diagnosis and had an appt scheduled to talk to his doctor.   I do not want to infect him as this has been so unbearable like have a hot coal in your vagina!!!! I am seeing the doctor again today because I have so many questions of what to do and how to clear it all up down there.    Will the antiviral drugs help clear the outbreak?  Should I be taking something daily to keep it from flaring up.   What other health issues can this cause with someone who already had other issues going on with kidney, liver and lungs?

Hi there welcome. To start off you’re not alone we’re all here for you. The Avs will clear the outbreak and you can request to be put on suppression medication which means you take AVs daily to suppress the virus. Your health issues indicate you are immuno compromised so I would suggest requesting AVs for suppression because those health issues could trigger outbreaks. There is nerve pain and itching associated with this virus but a healthy lifestyle is also needed to help you with it. I wish you all the best here’s hoping the mass on your kidney is benign. Try to be stress free as stress is a strong trigger for outbreaks.

Thank you for your reply.... I have just had mri on kidney and see the urologist for results tomorrow but he has already told me based on ct scan that he wants me to see a specialist surgeon who can remove the mass laparoscopicly using robotic technology so I expect I may opt for Surgery but wonder how this new Diagnosis will affect my recovery.   I am definitely going to ask for the daily antiviral to suppress it and start researching proactive measures I can take to keep an outbreak from happening

      I wish you luck my friend! It’d be nice to find something! The only two things I’ve ever tested positive for during this whole mess was a fungal infection in the groin creases, found by biopsy, and the nerve biopsy found nerve damage. I just hate thinking I’m unluncky enough to have HSV1 which is suppose to be the most tame where supposedly people have few if any problems with it, and mine have been endless! Do you have extremely sweaty scrotum and inner thighs when you wake up and periodically throughout the day? That’s been driving me nuts!

      Sorry to bombard your post hun but I’ve got a cut too on my vagina (labia) I shaved the night previous and the next day I had an itch so I itched with but I didn’t put my hand down their I used my knickers and all of a sudden I felt an irratation so I went to go have a look and I found this, it doesn’t hurt when touched and doesn’t hurt when I pee I can sit around and stuff, is this the same thing as yours? I’m going insane right now I’ve got health anxiety I want to cry thinking I have herpes 1st pic is what it was like when I looked first  2nd pic is when I got out the shower  3rd pic is now  and 4th pic is when I tried squeezing it to see if anything came out of it ( it never hurt either)  After shower pic

      That is exactly what mine look like (on one side of labia anyway) and the rest are kind of dark red flat pimple bumps
