Posted (edited)

In November 2018 I found out through blood test that I have hsv-1 infection. Before that I wasn't aware that I have cold sore, I have outbreak but no knowledge.  Haven't have in childhood so must acquired around 1-2 years ago. Was mentally stable till now (initial was super freaked out). For past 2 days I have something wrong in my right eye and after doctor visit, he told me that yes I have infection now in eye and he gave me antiviral Zirgan. I am so sad and completely hopeless now. I am 29 and have entire future ahead of me. As I am Asian Indian I am pretty sure that no girl will ready to merry me if I am disclosing my infection. But I want to be honest so I will disclose to any future partner. I think I am going to be alone forever and will not have love. So stressed to even reveal this to family. Any calming words on this? Do anybody have eye infection here, how you cope it up?

What exactly was wrong with your eye?

How did the doctor diagnose you?

Have red watery eye. Was feeling like some dirt in my eye. Lots of inflammation. Doctor checked my eye and see that there is some inflammation on my cornea. Was feeling vision compromised.

Was this through an eye doctor? Did they put the dye in your eye to check for visible evidence of HSV?

Yes, this is through eye doctor. He didn't put any dye but checked with some blue light and other means.

@hp90 you are taking all the right steps.

Please note that you have an oral HSV-1 infection almost undoubtedly from childhood not that it matters too much.

Hence your optic nerve is already infected and may have experienced an outbreak. Your eye doctor will have treated this and there is every chance of no ill effects from this.

Nor will it impact your chances of marriage etc. Most Indian girls have HSV-1 already!

i will say that you’re life one, is not over. i am 23, and have my entire life ahead of me, but you’d be surprised as to how many people are actually accepting of it and aren’t judgmental. yes, when it comes to intimacy you will have to disclose your status to your partner,  but safe sex and medication can lower transmission rates dramatically. just concentrate on yourself and your mindset. remember that this isn’t a death sentence and YES you will get married one day

      For those of you with GHSV 1 or 2 how did you know you were having a second outbreak? I was diagnosed with GHSV-1 a month ago and have had no symptoms till now. For the past two days I've been super itchy but there are no bumps/ulcers like last time. I read somewhere that some people experience periodic itchiness and no other symptoms so I'm wondering, is this super common and is what is happening to me? Or do I need to prepare myself that this is most likely a second outbreak in it's initial stages?

      We havent cured things not because we can't its because profits are a bigger priority. Trust me when I say I know it sounds like conspiracy talk but look at where and what they throw money at.... sickness is lucrative. So is death (War) The military budget is criminal to say the least, as is Nasa's budget That's just simple math, then look at all the obscene hurdles set in place to help deter anyone from going the distance. They only cry ethics when it comes to anything that could potentially benefit the greater good.

      I think it is very important for you to find out whether you carry HSV-1 or not. If you do, then any concerns you may have about HSV-1 are negligible. Many people carry an oral HSV-1, like your partner. This will be the only region of her body infected, that is the mouth in a practical sense. No contact with the mouth means no chance of infection for you. Hence there are zero issues with vaginal sex and you giving her oral. Kissing and you receiving oral sex are the feasible transmission possibilities. Perhaps the second is of minor concern, but your choice. If you decide you're never going to kiss a girl because she has HSV-1 orally then that will be your loss. Most girls have HSV-1 and all the cute ones!

      I disagree, we have made a significant contribution to keeping it on track and ensuring the OP has the correct information to cogitate upon. Let's keep the good work up!
