hello everyone

Recommended Posts


I am very new to this and have so many questions, so please forgive me if this post is super long! A few days ago it really hurt to urinate; like unbelievable pain and then about a half a day later I started getting some bumps down there. From that point on, it just got worse. Yesterday, I finally went to the doctor because I could barely walk. She never actually tested me for herpes, but I figured that it was pretty obvious. Also, I was diagnosed with a urinary tract infection as well..yippee..:( She gave me valtrex, which was super expensive by the way, and also zovirax ointment because she thought that would make some of the pain go away when i had to go to the bathroom. i am supposed to apply it topically 6 times a day. when i put it on it stings and it does not help with the pain, it still kills to go to the bathroom. also this ointment makes it impossible to keep it dry down there, which is what seems to be the way to go to make my OB go away faster. should i continue to use this ointment? I skipped all of my classes and work today because it hurts so bad to walk. I know I have only been taking meds for about a day and a half, but I figured that maybe it would get a little better, so I could at least walk. Anyway, any information is appreciated...thank you!

      Get some garlic concentrate pills 1000mg. I take one a day, eat whatever I want and stay symptom free.

      I understand how you feel. My boyfriend had always been cautious of physically being with me before, but now I’m afraid that he’ll never want to take that step. Ive accepted the fact that it’s something I’ll have to live with, but what still scares me is the impact that my herpes will have on people around me- especially sexual partners. I kissed him before I knew that I was carrying the virus (but I know for sure that I had it at the time) I’m scared to tell him that he might have it too because of me! I’m just trying to say that i understand your worry of what impact this will have in your relationship.

      Oh ok. If a cure does come along sometime in my life that would be awesome! Especially for the younger generations that will never have to worry about HSV. I’m still pretty young (22) and got a lot of my life left to do great things regardless if a cure ever comes

      I just got my diagnosis. My lips have been suffering from herpes for at least three years now, but because I have so many allergies and sensitive skin I always thought that it was an allergic reaction and dismissed the idea of herpes. How am I supposed to live a normal life now knowing that I can’t ever kiss my boyfriend without making him carry this burden. I was ashamed before to have my lips look swollen and pustulating in public, but now that I know it’s herpes I can’t help but hide more. This makes me feel like even more of an outcast, especially since I’ve been suffering with other skin problems like huge face cysts and very bad acne for years. What do I do? What am I even supposed to think or feel at a moment like this?
