Sls1983

I’m quite new to this group and this is my first message, I was diagnosed with genital HSV1 in December 2016, after a short split from my wife I made a massive mistake with has effeted me massively, I originally had an a typical outbreak with a lesion under my foreskin witch was not nice at all but since then I’ve never had an outbreak as such but I get constant pain in my penis and around my genitals doctors don’t seem to think it’s herpes that is causing this but can’t seem to give me any answers to what it could be, I just want to be able to work and provide for my family again so I can move on without being in pain every day, I am really struggling with this any help or advice would be great thanks.

Are you taking any antivirals to help?

Are you on any suppressive treatment?

I understand, I’m experiencing the exact same thing ...... except I don’t have a penis! 

I will get in touch with you tomorrow, it’s quite late over here now.

Speak soon :)

I have gHSV1 and have been living with similar symptoms for 6 months ever since my diagnosis. 

I think it is neurological. You should look for things that strengthen your nervous system. I tried three rounds of antivirals following my initial infection, and it didn't reduce the pain.

I have heard from others and found myself that Olive Leaf extract seems to tame it a little bit.

I am undecided on immunomodulators like Beta Glucans. They strengthen the immune system, but I'm beginning to think they just get the immune system to irritate the nerves more, however in theory they would help prevent outbreaks.

It's a neurological virus, so that is where the pain comes from absent an outbreak. I have a nerve on the left side which aches almost every day. It has improved over time.

I have ghsv1 and I’m on antivirals and been having pain and issues for almost two months straight now.  It never goes into the next stage of outbreak or healing.  It just always looks and feels like I’ve been stabbed in my vagina a bunch of times.  Everyday I want to jump off a bridge more than the day before.  Doctors lie.  Hsv1 is not easier than HSV2.  I really don’t believe they know much about it

This thread is about Vaccines and Research related to such, can you please not post stuff about your symptoms here? There are plenty of threads for that.  It's quite frustrating as well all know to have to deal with nasty virus and people like myself come to this thread for hope and knowledge on medical advances, research, and science. 

 

Please stop.

      @MissHorne, Please don't take what I said as a criticism. Just thinking out loud and wondering if he reads these. I haven't seen anything derogatory.

      Really need to sort my anxiety out. I've had heth anxiety for a few years and my new worry is hsv2. I think I had 1x unprotected exposure. The reason I say i think is that I passed out and  was possibly assaulted. No lesions, blisters ever seen. Ive been checking. Though 8 weeks after exposure had tingling and itching that lasted for 6-8 weeks on and off. I had this for a good year and a half.  Saw 3 GPs, and visited GuM twice where I was referred to a vulva dermatologist. A culture for HSV was taken, this came back negative.I was diagnosed as having Lichen and prescribed steroids which helped reduce symptoms. I just need some reasurance that I can assume I don't have this and move on. Is the fact that I had a negative culture enough proof and the absence of lessions etc reassuring? Thanks
