can herpes relocate?

Recommended Posts

chinga

first, I've never been tested. I've been with someone who has ghsv1

one day, I apparently caught it on my nut sack. it was hard to tell. this was after she had an outbreak without knowing + sex. so I assumed it was.

years passed and no further outbreak. 

but now, I've noticed, and in particular, if there is stress on my system (weightlifting) .... that it seems to have moved to my legs? 

like it went from my thigh, to just below the knee, to just above my ankle, three separate occasions. lower and lower.

any idea if this is possible? these blisters do not pop.

Almost certainly this will not be related to herpes. It also seems highly unlikely you have genital herpes based on what you describe.

your reply is appreciated but I don't think you know well enough to elucidate on the issue.

Only you can do that by seeking swabs of your symptoms and blood testing.

you're only stating the obvious. 

HYPOTHETICALLY speaking, I'm interested in the patterns this particular disease takes on. if you don't have any further info, don't bother responding.

Herpes only affects one nerve group. If you have it genitally, it means it has taken hold in the sacral nerve group and it can appear anywhere serviced by that nerve group, so anywhere in the boxer shorts area - genitals, buttocks, thighs. Below the knee/calf is outside this area, so likely not herpes. 

 

But also, why are you being so rude? You're the one asking on an online herpes forum instead of a doctor.

Correct and the pattern the virus takes is that it does not travel like you described. It is restricted to both the reach of the infected nerve ganglion. 

And yes it is critical that the obvious is stated. It is arrogant to think that your questions and answers are just for YOU. This is a public forum where we must consider the overall aspects for our readers and role model appropriate  behaviours and information and realities.

You tell me that only I have the ability to know yet YOU think you know better? you're straight contradicting your self. what authority do you have exactly to write off my suspicions? none more than I do. 

get off your high horse. blatantly hypocritical, two faced commentary do NOTHING to help the community especially since I'm asking a hypothetical.

you have the fucking audacity to post one statement replies and think that merits an understanding on your part? maybe try posting links or articles or even a fucking ANECDOTE, you literal sophist.

I'm not being rude, I'm being straight up. 

 

had wilson answered the question the way you did, I'd have no reason to tell him to bug off.

one line, backhanded, no source replies do nothing to help with my inquiry.

Then so what? You don’t get to choose who and how support is given.

you need to get over yourself.

yeah I do actually. I asked kindly for you to leave, after not providing a clear response.

 

if you can't be clear about what you're saying, what fucking business do you have continuing to try and stick your point into the conversation.

that's the goal of the OP, I made a request and you gave a baseless claim, removed from the context of what I was asking. you insist on proving something, but provided nothing. 

fuck off.

No that is unacceptable behaviour.

People are free to answer questions any way they choose and their diversity is welcome.

It is disgustingly arrogant to even consider you can ask someone to leave a public forum. That’s the whole point, to hear from people who do not think like you. This is a public conversation, everyone has the right. You are welcome to block or participate in PM exchanges.

Your anger and use of the forum is a violation of the rules and is totally not welcome. I suggest you follow your own advice until you can resume living in the realms of social acceptability.

you're right I'm free to answer in a way that you don't think.

that's clearly why you're so assblasted. because I pointed out your inconsistencies and lack of thought.

I don't need a lecture from someone who is as disingenuous as you are. 

again, take your non-knowledgeable advice somewhere someone will eat it up. it looks like you thrive on it, but I guess I hit a nerve because you keep railing on about irrelevant subject matter to distract from the fact that you had no intention of being clear or concise. 

 

work on it.

I think it is me that is hitting a nerve, which I have attempted to subtly convey but is clearly beyond your intellect and maturity at this time. But I won’t give up. Other readers can commence thinking on this and hopefully in a few days, months but hopefully not years you will too.

What needs to be conveyed is consideration of what one ought to do. One ought to question why is it that the stigma of herpes is so powerful that it results in behaviours of:

- assuming an outbreak will appear on the scrotum alone

- never seek testing

- worry about some issues on the ankle sufficient to write on a herpes website when there is clearly no value to be added.

The real issue here is why does such stigma exist to warrant absorption of the human mind in such matters that we are all here cogitating uselessly on an issue instead of handing out soups at the local homeless people’s kitchen for example.

I craft all my sentences with the accuracy of a surgeon. Why use long paragraphs with big words when two sentences ought to have been enough to redirect all our thinking and actions to community value add actions.

This is what is relevant. And what is relevant to you is that you don’t know you have herpes anywhere on your body and probably do not. That’s just fact whether you can face that or not, that is always your choice.

How we face facts defines us as people.

you have good intentions, but you completely missed the point of the OP. what you are talking about is not even part of the debate: I simply asked for you to source your claim and you still haven't.

 

another poster already answered my question and with less fluff. you love to hear your self talk because you have something to prove, and you're taking one situation and bending it to your agenda. 

like I said, if you can't say anything relevant about the topic, what in fact are you harping on about. try not being so apprehensive.

this was the correct answer and you failed to deliver.

get better at what you do or find another platform for your musings.

No, I didn’t miss the point, we all now have you pegged.

I am entirely comfortable with what I deliver, as I say, I deliver to all. 

The question was not relevant. I knew that you knew the answer in the first place. You’ve been on the forum long enough to have read the answer, we could all spot you were playing games. I tackled the WHY you asked the question, even if you cannot see why that is important, it is to others.

My comments are often not designed to answer questions, but to make people think and adjust the emotional mindset behind why the question was asked.

you're full of your self mate, Messiah complex and all.

you're not saving anyone with your "gray area" philosophy.

the only thing that is pegged, and certain, was that you did not answer the question properly. you didn't.

I asked if herpes moves beyond the knee and you gave six answers from Sunday about psychology. the best you did was state the obvious. maybe you should stick to that. since you can't follow basic directions.

also you're severely presumptuous, which says more about you than it does me. I asked a simple question.

spare me your soft-psuedo-psycho-analysis.

I don't have a problem comprehending what you wrote, its not that deep - its just off topic: you're conflating my concerns with a lack of understanding. it would have served you better to have addressed the question directly. it would also serve others better if you take some self awareness and made note of that.

Once again, your opinion as to how a question is answered matters nought. 

The fact that you lack a diverse mindset to explore a real adjacent issue, such as why you ever suspected your ankle issue could have been HSV related is ok, but that doesn’t prevent others from exploring. That’s served others enormously as a real topic.

making justifications and excuses for not being able to address a simple question without superfluous and unnecessary commentary is neither lost nor gained on me. you're merely trying to inject your own opinions, its really not different from what anyone else is doing. it matters no more than anyone else's, using your own logic. if you have to blow up your own head on something to justify your own lack of hindsight, there's no point in trying to explain - you're one dimensional and no, its not hard to grasp your angle. you're really just over explaining your self while not addressing the main point. you actually admitted your own goal was to not answer questions directly, sounds like you have some misguided sense of self importance if you think its necessary. its why you insist on having the last word even though someone already did for me better what you still can't do lol

I had no intention of answering your question, I addressed your actual issues.

I’m sorry you lack the maturity to address your own issues and write missives to avoid the fact you do not have herpes.

      ANd eight hours is on a surface...on a towel who knows. The eight hours was a quote off a thread a long time ago of worst case senerio. Obviously it doesnt survive double touching unless its some weird arse almost immediate thing off a shedding site and this is all WORST case scenerio. HSV shouldnt be treated with stigma...but for everyones well being it should be treated as carefully as poss. It is a highly contagious condition and can be difficult to diagnose and GP's will let you walk away thinking you are clear when you are not if you do not do your due diligence.    

      I knew more about it than the specialists at the hospital I was refereed to. 

      Thanks.

      I have seen your advise on a few threads and to be honest while I am over careful at times you are not careful enough. This can absolutely happen and people should be well aware of the fact to prevent it from happening. I supposedly have good immunity on labs too. You just cant tell who will pick it up. It can live on surfaces for up to eight hours and towels that are wet and warm and that make micro abrasions when rubbed on skin are ways that transmission that can occur. You will often find out more by spending many hours reading on threads than your doctors. SO no it doesn't always just involve a cut on the skin. How do you think people get it else where.

      So please DO NOT swear at me as this is a possibility and this person should careful tick all his bases before ruling it out, cos on the rare case it is I wouldnt want his life totally ruined. Cos if it gets everywhere your life kinda is.

      It's called caring.

      it happened to me i think i should know.; someone caught it off me off a towel. it bloody well happens.

      This is total BS and scaremongering. Please study further on here and elsewhere to learn a few more facts.
