Hey guys. I was just diagnosed with genital herpes after a visual examination. I've had all the possible symptoms - fever, chills, aches, sore throat, bumps on vaginal area and discomfort when peeing. I'm waiting to find out what strain I have and I have so many questions/am just feeling so terrible so would appreciate any help.
1: Does it really matter which strain you have? Should you still disclose this diagnosis to potential future partners?
2: Has anyone noticed small bumps on their fingers from the infection? Are these contagious? I have small bumps on one finger that haven't broken but are uncomfortable when touched.
3: Is it possible to have infection in both the mouth and genital area at one time? Most of the stuff I've read has said if you have bumps on the vagina then it's genital herpes but my throat is so sore and seems to have bumps way at the back - no sores yet.
4: Linked to Q.3, if I have genital herpes can I spread infection by kissing alone?
I had sex with a girl I didint know very well and woke up with 2 medium size bumps the next day idk if it’s herpes or not thinking about getting tested it’s been 3 days .
i was here in june with what I thought was maybe an oral ob. At that point it had been post exposure by 4 months and i ended up testing neg 1&2 igg. i just tested again and was neg for both, no new contact.
Monday night my nose all of a sudden became EXTREMELY itchy in just one nostril. the next morning and day all of these white bumps popped up all over it. I put abreva all in my nose. this morning i woke up and it was irritated but all the white bumps were gone. I calmed down but then i just looked and it looks like there's little erosions inside my nose now. The dr refuses to swab. Does this look like herpes? I'm attaching pics of my nose with the blisters and with the erosions, I circled the erosions. Also including a pic of my lip from june for reference.
Sorry for the image quality of my nose, one is scarily detailed and the one of the bumps is very blurry. hard to get a good nostril shot as it turns out
maybe i have a false neg hsv1 test result?
Feeling so defeated it is frustrating to not know what is going on and i feel humiliated by the drs who think i am being crazy for suggesting herpes.
How can GHSV-1 be transmitted genital to genital? How rare is it?
This question has been eating me up for some weeks now, but I am wondering how can ghsv1 thrive in a part of the body it isn’t usually suppose to show up on? If HSV1 typically causes cold sores and the virus attacks a specific ganglia area, how can it survive else where? This makes me wonder are the types of HSV important since you can get in orally or genitally?
