Does this look like herpes?

Recommended Posts

Jeez, and heres another one! It's at the top, obviously on the outside. Almost looks like a canker sore? But none of these are "blisters." And all are singular and spread out? I'm so confused!

I've been very ill lately, 101-103 fever for 10 days straight now. I was told it was the flu and a sinus infection, and have been on several antibiotics. I think I also had a bladder infection. Could it be that these sores are just from being ill? I also had a yeast infection.

Yes they could be yeast or bacterial related.

What was your sexual activity in the week before these sores appeared?

Can you get to a doctor for a swab?

I've had sex with my boyfriend, and it was slightly painful due to having the yeast infection. I thought perhaps it was friction sores at first.

Well jeez, he didnt swab. But he said that is the absolute only thing it can be. Whatever buddy. He did order bloodwork, but I've been so sick they couldnt draw enough. I have to go back.

Anyone else take a peek and offer opinion? Hanging onto a shred of hope that perhaps I didnt just catch something I have to deal with the rest of my life.

This is what they look like today. The ones on the bottom are gone. The one on top is going away. The one on the side hasnt changed much. Sorry for the close crop job, of course I had to start my period through all this mess. Trying to spare yall.

My fever is back. I swear I just want to give up. This is day 12 STRAIGHT of at least a 101 fever. I've missed 4 days of work. I'm out of sick leave and into leave without pay. I have small kids that need me (thankfully my boyfriend has been helping me.) But I need some encouragement. Please tell me herpes doesnt kill. The sores are an annoyance. This fever is going to kill me.

Herpes doesn't kill.  If the doctor thought this was herpes did he give you anti-virals?   That should start to act quickly

Valtrax. Been talking it religiously ever since I picked it up. It's a lot of pills. The sores have turned very tender. I'm slowly accepting this as my new reality. It sucks and I don't want this. :cry:

So I've been on the valtrex for about 24 hours. My fever is better (lower) but these sores HURT now. They really were just a little tender before. How much longer til the valtrex works on that?

Sores can take about two weeks to heal.  Stay on the Valt Rex to prevent new sores from forming.  

Valtrex doesn’t really do anything for existing sores.

Oil of oregano.  Mix with fractionated coconut oil.  Massage onto the area that is an issue.  With me, there was immediate relief.  Lesions didnt make it to blister stage and quickly went away.  Quit eating sugar.  Take care of yourself.  If u need more, begin by researching this forum for the ideas that people have shared.

Me.

Hey sis, so the ones in your vagina look like mine did. I had two “canker sore” like spots on opposite ends of my vagina. The one in your pubic hair *to me* looks like an ingrown hair. The fever and you being sick along with the sores seem like it’s herpes. 

BUT, the good news is: you’ll be okay. You can’t let it consume you if you get a positive diagnosis. I struggled for a long time with it. I’m actually on suppression therapy and I get really bad nerve pain down my leg. Just breathe and everything will be okay, just have to power through the outbreak♥️

      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.
