Prolonged first outbreak symptoms

Chars

Hi, it all started on October 5th, I woke up with a itchiness on my perianal area (I'm gay), I checked it out and noticed a sore in my anus. I went to a doctor and I was diagnosed with herpes (a blood test confirmed I have HVS type II) I also got tested on several STD, including HIV but thankfully only herpes got positive. The doctor recommended a cream and take valtrex over a ten days period and the sore would disappeared after that and recommended me to got tested on HIV after 3 months. I talked to my boyfriend and He got tested, same result, he showed sores in his penis shortly after me but neither got better within those ten days, my bf repeat the treatment and I decided to wait to see if it heal. He heals but not me. I got worry and went to another doctor specialist in STD, she prescribed me another ten days of valtrex (double to 4 pills per day) I got better but that area remains red and so did the pain, so I got another 10 days, but there was no use. The doctor then said to take just one pill for the next 3 months, I got tested again on HIV and it turned out negative but after 3 months I haven't fully recovered from it. It is just clear that although my bf and I remains together I lost my sexual drive (really not into intimacy I'm just very concerned about my health) my bf is pushing me, but I just feel alone, why is it only me? I googled about it and all I read say outbreaks last about two weeks, even with HIV the articles talks about over a month, but I've been suffering this nightmare since October 5th, that is more than 3 months. I talked about this with my doctor, but she just said that I must remain calm, not jumping to conclusions and to follow the treatment and get another test in the following month (and obviously no sex). Is there anyone who can relate or recommend me what can I possibly do or read to understand better? It is not about the uncomfortable which is manageable but the whole thing is draining my energy, is a non-stop reminder that is driving crazy. Thanks in advance.

      I'm glad I donated and will do so again when it hits $10,000, as you will, Mike. If anybody doubts what the Jerome group is trying to do, the report from Vail, CO in May 2018 makes it crystal clear. Their goal is to disable the virus and render it incapable of reactivating from latency, which is exactly what we want, and they are up to about 20% to 30% successful, which is SOLID progress.

      I recently have atleast 3 scars which are already atleast 2 months now. I dont know it it is caused by a herpes, but as far as i can remember it stared last november 27, 2018. It did not have water filled blisters but it tingles. It was not painful at all. I thought it would just clear up after a week but it leaves a scar. I put a celetique scar remover but it didnt worked at all. The scars are still there and i think it is growing. Im afraid, scared and ashamed to go to the doctor. Pls help
