Bright red blood

Recommended Posts

speechless_1

Hi,

I am near what I had hoped was the end of my outbreak and a new symptom hit me.  Bright red blood.  Its there when I wipe and its definitely not period blood.  Is this a usual symptom?  Have other people experienced this?  It seems to be quite a lot.  I only have 2 outer sores - they are nearly healed now - and i have one (maybe more i don't know) just at the entrance to the vagina.  I think this may be where the blood is coming from.  Ive tried to have a look but its hard to see.  

Other symptoms i have experienced - flu type symptoms, agonising pains in back of leg on side of sores, pain to pee, burning tingling sensation over whole genital area, yellow discharge, extreme tiredness.  I have been visually diagnosed with HSV, waiting swab results.

Did you ever get swab results?

Hi,  I did.  I am HSV 2 positive.  How are you doing?

Ah. Glad you have answers. I've not heard of anyone bleeding. Ouch. Was that your first outbreak? Was the yellow discharge vaginal? If so, was it "snot-like?" 

I'm either still on my first outbreak (after a week of no sores,) or on my second one in the same month. Yay. (Or a very slight possibility that I dont have hsv at all because I've only for a visual diagnosis at the moment. But thats highly unlikely.)

@Hopingimwrong That was my first outbreak.  The yellow discharge was vaginal and it was really thick, almost green.  Yes i would say it was almost snot like.  That lasted a few days then disappeared.  Im on my second outbreak - although I don't think my first ever cleared up completely they are so close together.

I think the blood was menstrual.  Im on the mini pill so i never know when i will have a period.  I feel like this has brought my period on if that is even possible!

I hope you get answers soon and start feeling better.  x

My one and only lesion is lightly bleeding tonight when I dab at it. Definitely the lesion. Beginning to think this might just be an ingrown hair, ...but my boyfriend is out of town and I obviously can't get my face down there.

Don't mess with it. Maybe dab to with peroxide and leave it alone.

It is said that it is very important to treat initial infections with antivirals! Be sure not to spread it around by itching and touching etc.

I have no idea if this is a continuation of the initial, a second one, an ingrown hair, or what. :( :( :( :(

I only have a visual diagnosis at this point. Do you mind checking out my most recent thread and seeing what you think? @GlitterDx Thanks in advance. ((()))

      literally cold sores just make my whole mouth area numb and in pain, especially when i eat food or take a shower. it's super hard too when you are trying not to break open the scab but daily activities tend to make it worse. luckily, i don't get headaches or anything so bless your souls, just a lil runny nose and lots of pain.   i have found some natural remedies/OTCs ease the pain. ice for example always makes it feel more numb, but i have to wait until the scab isn't super delicate.   i made a parody to 7rings by ariana grande destigmatizing cold sores-- give it a chance:) and if you like it, repost with the hashtag #realslimsorechallenge with your own tips to shorten coldsores everywhere! they friggin suck!!!!! we gotta be here for eachother:)
