Ghsv1 second outbreak already?

Recommended Posts

Three weeks ago today I had my first ever outbreak with all the classic symptoms. Got swabbed and put on 7 day antivirals right away and my sores were gone about 3 days later. However nerve/skin pain, and flu like symptoms lasted for about two weeks. The results came back as Hsv1+ ten days later.. well eventually I was feeling back to my old self but this only lasted about a week. Yesterday and today I have been itchy down there and on my thighs, and have also been having skin pain like a sunburn and shooting pain around my bum and legs. What is this? A second outbreak already? I thought with ghsv1 you only get a couple a year at most? Ughhh

Hi

I was diagnosed a year ago with ghsv1 and had an horrendous first outbreak. After that I had around 1 a month for about 4 months but they were nothing like the first. Since then I don't think I've had an actual full on outbreak but my vag feels itchy and almost like it has a carpet burn on it quite frequently. I use coconut oil when it gets really bad but I think it's getting better as I've had no blisters for months now. Our immune system must take a little while to get used to it. I don't follow any specific food requirements anymore like I used to like no caffeine, nuts or chocolate etc. I just eat healthy and work out and try to be as healthy as possible. It does get easier. I also don't take any medication apart from when I had my 1st outbreak.

@G77 It’s crazy how everyone’s body reacts differently. I am very hopeful hearing this, although I was really hoping I’d be one of the lucky ones and not get another LOL. Almost every ghsv1 story I have read supports that it does get a lot better after the first year so that’s good. I wanted to hold off on medicine to see how my body would take it on it’s own, but I am in a new relationship and very sexually active so I guess I will see what my doctor suggests. Thank you so much for replying!

      That's exactly right, you can return to your life and get the blood test as a sleep easy in 12 weeks time (from the last episode).

      Him and his ex have regular breakouts with all the traditional symptoms and I believe he was swabbed.  So I can return to life as it was before all of this drama ? I may still look into a blood test is I am confident it is accurate

      @Laurenhelena how is this guy sure he has herpes? All sounding a bit odd to me. Yes it is very unlikely you will develop lesions now. Rubbing skin to skin is required for any feasible transmission chance. The odds of transmission with unprotected vaginal sex are of the order of 0.08% per epsiode. Halve this if a condom is worn. Compare that to chamydia that has about a 33% chance of transmission with unprotected sex; now that's contagious!

      I just feel that it’s known as such a contagious STD - I’ve been lying to my family cause when I tried to talk about it they became very anxious and begged me to tell them I hadn’t slept with him when I had - If someone told me that they slept with someone with genital herpes my mind would instantly think they had it.  So it’s unlikely then that I’m going to get symptoms now? I’m not going anything further with that guy but we have cuddled and kissed in bed with underwear on, is that ok?  Im quite sure he has hsv2 given that his ex gave it to him through a threesome  I’ve never had a cold sore
