Hi I recently diagnosed with hsv2 via swab test and taking acyclovir for a month and still feel some pain in inside my penis don't know if it is due to hsv 2 because initially I got pain during my urination and went to doctor and doctor took a swab test and confirmed it is hsv2 I got one small blister on top of my penis and inflammation and red swelling when I open my penis and see inside(urethra- where urine comes out) after taking MEDICATION the blister disappeared in few days but initially doctor suggested 7 days treatment with acyclovir which I completed though I felt loss of appetite, leg pains and thought it is due to the hsv and after completing the first dose after 1 or 2 days the swelling inside my penis started again and doctor suggested me start the MEDICATION again and now I completed my 2nd dose too but the swelling didn't gone and itching not gone doctor suggesting me to take valtrex for another 30 days as suppressive therapy but I didn't know the swelling and itching inside the penis is due to hsv. I also took doxycycline parallel with my first dose. Can anybody please help me?

      I'm 99% confident that these are caused by Herpes. This is what they looked like when I first caught the virus, and in the same spots as well, although now much milder and smaller in size.  I have tested positive via swab when I first got the virus, and two times via blood test. However, since several people here are doubting my symptoms are caused by HSV, I might do another swab just to be sure. It's still good to rule anything else out beforehand.

      And btw  @ayekayelle I’m sorry you’re considering divorce. I hope you are able to work it out with him. But if you’re not happy I think it’s worth taking the risk of leaving! You deserve to be happy!

      Ikr! I’ll have guys be like “oh yeah you’re right, you’re not gross or less valuable but it is a deal breaker” I don’t really blame them (because I am still coming to terms with it being “not a big deal”)

      It's very possible he or you were mostly a carrier. Neither one of you have to have sores all you have to do is shed.
