So I just had a dr at urgent care test me for herpes. She looked at my sores and she did a swab test but she said she could tell by looking at it that's what it is... Anyways I'm pretty sure she's right and this isn't a "do I really have herpes?" post. My real question is about the sores.. I have had small cuts usually just one in the same place over and over again. I always thought I scratched it during masturbation or that it just tore but its always in the same place. The reason I got tested was because for the 2nd time in the last few months I had sores. At first I just thought i had clawed myself because the top one was in the same place as the tear and the 2nd one was by my clitoris. I've been under alot of stress this year so I figured that is why i had this outbreak but i've had the small tears for a long time. I don't remember having any sores ever. I read your first outbreak is the worst so how is it possible that i've never had a full blown outbreak until now??? Or maybe I just dont remember having the first one???
Hi confirmed genital hsv sufferers. I think one of the most confusing aspects of reading information about genital HSV and what Prdrome is about.
Can you provide your knowledge of how Prodrome works?
Is it localized to where outbreaks occur?
Does it travel?
Does it come and go or when it starts does it stay until an outbreak develops (I know sometimes outbreaks always manifest).
Thanks in advance for all your experience with those that may be wondering what prodrome is so they won't confuse random symptoms with an HSV infection.
ive posted here before about this strange spaced out rash that I have on my groin. It’s now been about 16 days since I first noticed one red spot. Then a few days later I noticed this blistery/pimple thing that popped up nearby and for two weeks they just kept popping up individually. On my last post I had comments from people saying it most likely looked like something bacterial. I’ve been trying to do some research on outbreaks with no prodrome but I can’t find anything! I had no tingling, burning, itching sensations in that area before I noticed the first spot. I literally just noticed it and was like what the hell is that?
also, can Herpes be that spaced out? From what I’ve learnt is that the lesions appear all bunched up together. I’ve also heard that initial outbreaks hurt A LOT. however these spots haven’t been very sore at all.
But my main question is can you have no prodrome symptoms?
I was diagnosed with gential herpes in 2014 sadly after a night of protected sex- go figure right? Anyways, my initial OB appeared to be the 'standard' OB. I had a sore, painful, it oozed a little but never scabbed up and disappeared after a week or so. I hadn't visited my obgyn so I wasn't I meds but it came back a day later. I eventually saw my doc (I knew I had herpes but I was in denial) so that I can get Valtrex. I was assured the sore would go away but it never really did. I stopped taking Valtrex after a week of using it.
The sore disappeared but showed up on the opposite side of my initial OB. I was put on suppresive therapy w/ valtrex and even acyclovir but nothing worked- I even had my dosages increased. I decided to give natural remedies a try. I used tea tree, oregano oil, colloidal silver, hyrogene peroxide, dsmo, you name it. Nothing worked.
I was tested for HIV- negative. After a few months the sore went away. I read your first OB is always the worst but two days after the sore went away, I started getting these paper cut like fissures on my vagina. I assumed they were herpes related so I went back to the old natural remedies and incorporated lysine, garlic, zinc, burdock, olive oil extract- you name it, I've tried it.
Three years later, Im still HIV negative and have never gone more than three days without herpes related symptoms. Whether it's vaginal itching, itching on my lower back, sheding, paper cut like fissures, vaginal discharge or the sores- I ALWAYS have some sort of symptom. I noticed the sores are no longer visible tho. I can feel them but I cant see them, they're not nearly as painful as before and less frequent, but they don't ooze, bleed or anything. I can just feel them there.
Has anyone else dealt with this? I would also like to mention that my viral count was pretty high once I received my results, it believe it was anywhere from 10-14.
Is this really herepes??
Not married but I do have a boyfriend, With KNOWN ghsv1 & ohsv + status, who is seeing another woman.
This woman knows that we are together. Neither of them know that I know they are seeing each other at the moment, as his cell phone answers many of my questions since I found out what they are up to.
I've been on this since the beginning stages of there encounters (it's been about a month now)
He is the one who infected me an now he's up to no good.
I want to tell her only because it will give me some evilish satisfaction, me being the one to tell her but MOSLTY because I WISH I was HER in this situation if I did.
I could possibly keep her from acquiring this virus and altering her life forever like he did mine is she doesn't already have it
I wish a women who he infected or who infected him was able to give me the heads up in our early dating stages.
I mean there are pros an cons to this, I know that this will probably showcase our medical condition if she tells but I don't know if I could feel any worst about this virus then I already do.
People knowing is the least and ACTUALLY having to deal with it for life is the most for me.
S|B: Sometime I want to scream (I have H, take it or leave it! ) just to get it off my chest because I feel like I'm hiding everyday but he definitely don't want that, as far as I'm concerned he do not want others to know his status.
An no he did not disclose to me I found out the hard way....
