Herpes on your finger

Recommended Posts

Jessicamay97

I was diagnosed with herpes only a year ago, having slept with my current boyfriend just the once I instantly had an outbreak. It’s been a tough year if I’m honest and this definitely hasn’t helped. I’ve had about 20 outbreaks and I am now on suppression tablets, but one thing has happened recently- I’ve had an outbreak on my finger? Literally the inside of my index finger had around 5/ 6 blisters. It’s heart breaking, it has left deep red scars that no amount of bio oil is helping.

Has this happened to anyone else? Have they experienced outbreaks anywhere else on their body?

It's likely happened to me but never been swabbed for verification. It's considered rare to get a new infection once antibodies are in place. That said, don't assume it's herpes, albeit blisters are an indication. Provide a picture here on the forum. But ultimately, you should have it swabbed.

By the way, to get it on your finger you need to have had that finger in contact with an infected area; i.e. it doesn't spread from your vagina to you finger systematically.

      Sorry @Voyager2 it's such a garbage thing and you don't deserve that sort of treatment. I am hoping something comes out of the woodwork in the near future. I want that party in time square and I am sure @Sillybrain2 would be there too, We'd probably party all year, we've been waiting too long for this.

      There’s a lot of what looks like bro science here, can you point to any studies or views by experts that support this? Lets get a few facts on the table and see where that might lead us. Does HSV 1/2 generally cause nerve damage? Experts say no. Not even the likes of Terri Warren, Anna Wald and William Halford have isentifed this. Does an infection cause nerve and other complications at the time of primary or initial infection with HSV-2. Experts say yes. It is well researched. Plenty of examples explained as Elsberg syndrome for example point to particular lesions on the spinal column that cause issues. In nearly all cases healing occurs within a few months. Note that this is not to be confused with CMV/VZV caused Elsberg which is generally more serious and sometimes permanent. All herpes related issues will respond well to acyclovir. There are also related issues with the immune system that can be triggered by viral infections, most of which are also self limiting.

      Keep asking away @thebrightsidegirl You’ll get some good answers from experienced folk here, mostly! For a person with genital HSV-1, yes they can get genital HSV-2 although the chances appear to be somewhat reduced. No one knows by how much. People with both types identified in the one location are very rare indeed, although there’d be under-reporting. For your boyfriend, it sounds like some testing would be a good idea. Can he get a swab if the sores?

      Do you? I think people can read your story and decide for themselves, please pay that respect to people to understand your full story, don't our readers deserve that?   That's mice!??! On the basis of mice you pretend that what I write is wrong? I am relaying research into humans that is far more progressed than these papers on mice. Publish one paper that shows HSV-2 has caused nerve damage (I mean damage) to genital nerves. And given that there are 4 billion people with HSV-1, show us one documented case of nerve damage conclusively from HSV-1? The problem with mice models is that their immune system does not produce human immune response interferons and natural killer cells, not to mention the enhancements to neural density that accompanies the immune response.
