Wanteducated

So my 20 year old daughter and I just found out she has genital herpes.  She is away at college and dealing with it on her own.  I am trying to be as supportive as I can by reading everything I can find from reputable sites.  She is staying busy this week with as she is involved with her schools freshman orientation for the new class coming in.  She was told by an urgent care doctor that she had it Visually, they did a blood test and called her to confirm it is herpes.  I told her to ask what type and she was told they don’t really type anymore because there is to much gray area but that it is a new infection. From what I have read that seems odd and she should find out what type.  I told her to inform anyone she may have had sex with in the last 6 months, she said she told the guy and he was an ass about it which of course makes the emotional side worse.  She is emotionally a wreck about it and I am trying to help her understand it’s not the end of the world.  Of course being 20 she feels she will not have the chance to meet anyone who would want to date her now. Any advice would be great....she is still in the middle of her first outbreak but I think the antiviral has been helping since she went to the doc as soon as she thought something wasn’t right.  I just want to help her as best I can!

She's not alone. I'm in college and just contracted hsv2. We will be okay! Although it's really hard to see that a lot of the time to be honest.

Definitely not alone, after doing research since we found out I know it is very prevalent.  I just hate the stigma that goes with it and that is really what worries me.  I think the emotional toll it can have is worse than actually having it.  I know she will be ok and be able to find a good guy who won’t be scared off by it.  I am very proud of her for informing the guy as I know that was scary and hard.  He was an ass about it which made it worse and makes me believe he knew he had it already.  Good luck to you, you will be ok!

i'll date her . haha.. usually problems .  can't date if always have symptoms ..  tell her even if tis bad goes every where it go away in most places as well or dormant .   apricot power.com     get some seeds .. working ices or me . healthy gain , seems to balance the system and trigger foods ..  after 2 weeks it seems to mow over symptoms and problems ..   i think apricot dried fruit as snack and with the seeds helps a lot as well.  soaks though skin . feels good ..  she be okay .. most people do okay and clean when out breaks over ..  females sure its worse ,  seeds are god sent .  see it worked for another chick on here ... found that after i tried them . side effect they prevent cancer .   don't over eat . little goes long way . stay under 60 a day . eat a lot spread it out .

      I'm glad I donated and will do so again when it hits $10,000, as you will, Mike. If anybody doubts what the Jerome group is trying to do, the report from Vail, CO in May 2018 makes it crystal clear. Their goal is to disable the virus and render it incapable of reactivating from latency, which is exactly what we want, and they are up to about 20% to 30% successful, which is SOLID progress.

      Do herpes leave scar? I had 3 blisters on my eye forehead, my aunt said it was herpes. But  hinsi naman sya nagtingle at masakit. At ngayon nag scar na sya sa may eyebrow ko. Nilalagyan ko na lang nang eyeliner para hindi halata.

      I recently have atleast 3 scars which are already atleast 2 months now. I dont know it it is caused by a herpes, but as far as i can remember it stared last november 27, 2018. It did not have water filled blisters but it tingles. It was not painful at all. I thought it would just clear up after a week but it leaves a scar. I put a celetique scar remover but it didnt worked at all. The scars are still there and i think it is growing. Im afraid, scared and ashamed to go to the doctor. Pls help
