Does anyone know if this is H? (PIC)

Unsure whether this is something to be worried about or not. Coming up to 3 weeks now. I’ve been to a sexual health clinic and they said there’s nothing to worry about. I haven’t had sex in 6 months I’ve also never done it without a comdom. There is no fluid in them even when I’ve tried to squeeze them. There’s also 2 of them near my belly button

Hey @John1988  that is not herpes. There is a few things it could be, folliculitis and staph head the list, but there is also yeast and molluscum as possibilities.

Note that if infected with herpes you would obtain lesions within days of infection and not months later as an initial outbreak.

Thanks for the response, what do you recommend I should do??

I'd try giving it a chance to clear up. Maybe you've been eating poorly lately, fatty foods and oily foods?

Hence what I would do is wash the area thoroughly perhaps with antibacteria medicated soap. Dry the area with a hair dryer. Wear boxer shorts rather than jocks.

I don't believe it is molluscum as I believe that is pus inside (white and creamy?)

Maybe statistically or for a percentage of those infected but not always the case. I did not show any symptoms until at least a month  or more after exposure. 

I had high positives on both blood tests, though my symptoms were atypical and not swabable.

I was also misdiagnosed by a Dermatologist.

Exactly. 

I had symptoms right after the infection and different symptoms 4 months later.

Dermatolgoists misdiagnosed me and scoffed at for suggesting I have herpes. If it doesn’t look traditional, good luck getting someone to take you seriously.

You need to take yourself seriously, you do not have any evidence you have herpes. 

How are the dermatologists wrong?

Please don’t bother to post if you aren’t showing concern, respect or empathy for the OP but looking to self serve.

There’s a very scared little boy running amok here, please look to the light, look for growth.

I’m not sure that’s the case. It isn’t really plausible that you were infected on the very last sexual encounter with this person and experienced symptoms a month later. 

Is it not possible that you were infected sometime prior and didn’t notice owing to the HSV-1 infection. In a relationship stable you had no reason to be concerned but this is accentuated when you weren’t and had a recurrent outbreak.

Have you gotten any blood work or swabs? 

I know it’s hard to ignore Wilso telling everyone they don’t have herpes or that we don’t care about you.

Notice that nobody else harasses other members across forums except him. Notice his constant hijacking of threads to focus on himself as the moral authority. He doesn’t care about you and he’s not your doctor.

I see, well I think it's time we move our support to the next level for you. It was hoped you'd be able to bring yourself back to normality. Regrettably it is now clear you are on the edge or past the safety gate of Munchausen's syndrome. I'll return to that in other posts.

Something that I have been holding back on is exploring the likely trauma that's at the root of the problem.

It is also clear from your posts that your fear grows almost palpably daily. Hopefully there is time to arrest this.

I sense this is about avoidance of something. What is the root cause. Is there something you feel unforgiven about? Is there something you feel you need to forgive?

To fix this issue, go to a dermatologist and demand a diagnosis and a treatment solution.

      Really wasn't sure which topic to put this in! I'm guessing a lot of you will have seen the recent news that Mel B was rushed to hospital thinking she was blind from her eye herpes.  I know she's not as famous as she used to be, but I really don't understand why celebrities with a big presence aren't doing anything about this, such as fundraising for a cure or even just talking about it to raise awareness. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think she's ever spoken about it before!  She clearly suffers from some bad symptoms. Thinking that you've gone blind must have been one of the most terrifying experiences, and to me, after that ordeal I would try and do everything in my power to raise awareness and find a cure.  Maybe she just doesn't know about all the vaccination research that's currently happening, and how many of these places need the extra funding to keep going?  Not sure where I'm going with this 😂 But does anyone think it's worth getting in contact with her about raising some awareness?

      Hey @Alda whatever is going on for your arm you can rest assured it is not at all likely to be herpes. Could the blister type things be from the massage causing irritation, perhaps even contact dermatitis? If you aren't seeing improvement soon consider seeing the doctor but it doesn't strike me as anything of much concern.
    • Alda
      I need help; i went and got a massage and 2 days later my upper arm feels super sore and is red with 3 blister type things, each about a small pea size the place I got a massage at was  not very sanitary , it was hot in there and the masseuse was sweating I think (i do have the down south H but haven’t had a breakout in about a year and I still don’t.) my arm does not itch just super sore. I wonder what is on my arm. any ideas?

      It did! There are combinations you can take that will not give you this effect, I just didn't want to do medication anymore. What I am doing https://www.amazon.com/MakingCosmetics-BHT-4-4oz-125g/dp/B01DE780OS read Steve Fowkes free book BHT1/8 t in coconut liquid MCT chain oil. Extremely hard to dissolve. I leave it for a day, must read Steve Fowkes free book online, overdose gets people dizzy! More is not better! Oils will also not get Rancid if you put some in your cooking oils! whole food vitamin, glutamine 3x one gram, suggested by case9 love it DHEA,25mg, most people who breakout have low levels lugols iodine worked way to four drops. Fulvic acid minerals. Thyriod granular meds   When I used to have obs I used monolaurin and st.John s wort. I used diaper rash cream for obs I also still spray genitals with zinc sulfate mixed with water. I learned it kills any virus plus summer sweat won't smell at all!  There is one thing I will not be without and that's BHT and zinc sulfate
