When l get rid of the outbreak


Recommended Posts

Hey,

I have been effective by herpes simplex virus for 21 days. And l still have the pain and lesion. I went to the doctor 2 weeks ago, she said that ”is getting better, there is no lesion in the area. ” and l had sex with my boyfriend while using a condom. After that l got the pain and lesions again. Last night l checked and l didn't see any lesions and didn't feel any pain and we thought it's gone. We had sex and now l have the pain again. My question is when l get rid of this pain and lesions? Is it bad to have sex before lesions still in there even l barely see them?

Also, my period started today. Do you think it will get worse?

      Hi, me again. I thought I’d gotten over all the herpes obsession but now I’ve noticed red spots near my vagina entrance and I’m beyond panicked. They are on both sides, they don’t itch and aren’t really sore, which I know usually is symptoms for herpes. I’ve had them for 3 days now and they haven’t necessarily changed shape, which I know is common. Someone please help me! What is this? I’m on my period, is it irritation? I’ve been with the same guy for months now so I’ve either had it and not known or possibly got it from him. It’s not letting me upload pictures, but I’ve copied a link where I uploaded them. Please someone check them out and help me  https://patient.info/forums/discuss/do-i-have-herpes--761234

      Would love any advice on if these symptoms seem like hsv  or if anyone else has had consistent negative testing yet present with intense symptoms. Doctors I have seen do not think it is hsv. But cannot give me any other explanation. 
      Had sex in 11/8 and symptoms started 11/15 and have wavered in intensity and changed yet been consistent through out the last 5 months.
      Initial symptoms: vaginal itching, thick white discharge, anal itching, two tears in labia. Doctor thought it could be yeast was treated and with no change to my symptoms. 
      Following symptoms: chills, body aches, smooth bumps that burned slightly on buttock, headaches, nerve pain in hands and feet as well as wrist. Constipation and numbness on clit. Watery/bubbly discharge even though no internal lesions were present. Also had grey discharge for one day.
      Next symptoms: burning sensation, tingling, cooling sensation in groin, back thighs, and buttocks. which has continued for the last 4 months with little relief. Also raw and irritated feeling in thighs and labia area. discharge goes from a sticky whiteish consistency to a thick white consistency. 
      Symptoms on mouth: tingling, burning, splitting, and tears on  one side of lip. These seems appear off and on occasionally. 
      The most intense symptoms of all is the nerve pain. It feels like I cant escape it. And it is the main symptoms that leads me to believe I have hsv. 
      I have had no noticeable lesions, blisters or coldsores. 
      Has been negative for yeast, BV, and other stds. 
      Tears were swab with a viral culture: negative. 
      IgG test at 2 weeks, 5 weeks, 12 weeks 18 weeks: negative. 
      I have had the western blot kit sent to me, just worried about finding a doctor that will agree to sign the paperwork. Planning to get the WB to give me answers. 
      Partner refused to get tested for HSV and claims he is clean which makes me even more suspicious.

      Hello everyone. A sex worker performed oral sex on me on December 17, 2020, after 2 days I go with a doctor friend I tell him that I made a mistake that I am afraid of an STD (I am married) he gives me cetriaxone, he gives me azithromycin and 7 days of tetracycline . I go home and have sex with my wife on December 24 and 26, on December 27 I have a discomfort when urinating, in January another doctor formulates gentamicin and it is removed, but I am left with a strange sensation in my urethra, he tells me that probably kidney stones. On February 17, a bright red ulcer appears on my glans, when I see it, I panic and go to the hospital, they test me for all HIV (I already have 5 tests to date), syphilis (vdrl fat-abs), chlamydia and gonorrhea all The doctor checks the lesion and tells me that it is not herpes, it does not look like herpes because there were no blisters or blisters. Anyway, I started taking acyclovir and 8 days after having the wound (it already had a white scab on top, it healed after 2 days) I did the herpes test (I had about 3 days taking acyclovir) I clarify since I was little I have had h1 on my lips, the results were the following IgG for h1 positive (obviously) IgG for h2 negative IgM for h1 negative IgM for h2 negative I don't know what to do I don't trust the tests these tests were taken 10 weeks after contact apart from that I used a cream that had a strong ration on my penis and burned it by 80% and to this date it is recovered

      @CHT I am not sure what country you are in but I am in the U.K. and they don’t do blood tests for HSV at the standard sexual health clinics maybe at private ones where you have pay they do.   What would checking my anti bodies confirm ? And she didn’t swab the area as she said there was nothing to swab and no lesions but I am sure there was. She seemed quite inexperienced.  I have had an lesion swabbed years  ago  to confirm HSV2 but no swabs  since.  I would like  to know if they are HSV or my excema as I never know which is which so I just don’t have sex when I get these feelings as I don’t know if I’m having a Outbreak.  I will have a look at the link thanks. I wouldn’t want to go on the implant again as I don’t want 3 years of birth  control in my arm. I may consider the mini pill which is the same hormone as the implant as I can easily stop this it I have a bad reaction. I have an appointment with a specialist at the sexual health clinic next week

      Hey @PlainJane what a thoroughly nasty piece of work! Im afraid it is the waiting game for you, having said that, there seems very little reason for you to suspect herpes.
    • PlainJane
      @WilsoInAus Thank you so much for the reply! You did before I even asked lol. I really didn’t want to talk to her about it. The last time we had spoken she was really mean and nasty to me. Threatening to beat me up because she was drunk. I don’t want her going around telling people I asked her if she has herpes because I have it. Which she absolutely will. Or she does and then I will be her scape goat for her to tell people I’m the one who gave it to her. I guess it’ll be a waiting game to get blood work to confirm or deny the presence of HSV2 antibodies.

      Hello @PlainJane I think I recall your partner's post and would suggest that what he had as revealed in the photos was almost certainly not herpes - and reaffirmed above! The first thing to note is that you cannot be infected with HSV-1 and then test at a level 43.5 a total of 9 days after the incident. That's not how your body works. It would takes several weeks and possibly months to reach that level. Undoubtedly the HSV-1 infection is old and highly likely an oral infection from your childhood. The next thing to note is that toys or any object are not a great way of transferring herpes. Typically the rubbing of the skin area that is shedding the virus against the recipient's skin is needed. Transfer any other way is somewhere between infeasible to impossible. Your pictures do not look like herpes to me in favour of folliculitis - your partner's thigh shots are almost certainly folliculitis. Also note that this female friend must have HSV-2 for this to even warrant the vaguest notion of herpes being a cause. Can you ask her? If she does have HSV-2, then you will need a 12-16 week IgG test in order to have a conclusive answer (with a strong expectation of negative).
    • PlainJane
      @WilsoInAus Could you review this? You replied previously on my boyfriends post of his butt rash. I guess all I can really do is find a facility who will swab when I have a suspecting bump, since my doctor won’t for some reason and then redo the blood test for HSV2 since it’s now been 4 weeks since possible exposure.
