Men only: how painful are your outbreaks?

Recommended Posts

They say that men got less painful outbreaks. Is it true? What are the accompanying symptoms? And how much milder are the recurrences?

Less Painful OBs

I have to say that I contacted HVII last year and it have been one painful year. If there are not blisters then there is just a constant pain in my penis. I tried everything and nothing seems to help. IN the end the pain is tough to deal with and there is nothing to help

I get them all the time for one thing or another. sometimes its cause im working out too much, i get a cold and get sicker, not enough sleep. And these things are in my life constantly. My obs are above my thing right belove my waist line. It hurts so bad because it's always rubbing. Drives me crazy. And a lot of the times i I have to sit funny wherever I am so I am not in pain.

I don't know if this is a good idea, but....

I'm new to this whole thing, but the very first thing that I did when I saw those little bastard things was to put a bandaide over it.

I am pretty much able to operate like a normal human during the day (even go to the gym) and take the bandaide off at night to make sure that it gets the healing oxygen that it needs.

Like I said, I'm new to the whole thing, but it's something that I do. I would leave it to others to tell you if the bandaide is actually GOOD advice!

Peace,

Ha ha, already discovered....

So, reading from another post it seems that a bandaide is a bad idea because it may increase friction.

Which is a shame because the bandaide really did a lot to make it feel better.

Maybe a different type of wrapping mechanism.... I don't know. Like I said I'm totally clueless.

Peace,

      In my case, the symptoms of keratitis appeared suddenly, while I was waiting for the bus on a bus stop. I had a feeling like something burst in my left eye. The eye immediately became red, very watery, painful and I couldn't look at the light. There was a hospital nearby, so in half an hour I had an appointment with an ophthalmologist who diagnosed keratitis and gave me a prescription for some eye drops. The instruction for the eye drops mentioned that this medicine was used against keratitis caused  the herpes virus. That's how I found out that my keratitis was a viral one. For the next 15 years I had relapses of the keratitis. I was lucky that the corneal clouding was far enough away from the pupils and didn't affect my vision. Since I started using the garlic solution 18 years ago, I've successfully been preventing any keratitis relapses which sometimes try to come back. In case of viral keratitis there's no discharge from the eyes. If you have some discharge, it may possibly mean that you have a bacterial infection which should be treated with antibiotics. The problem is in finding the right drug for your particular case, the particular antibiotics that can kill the infection in your eyes. Garlic has both anti-viral and antibacterial properties, so you can try this method, it won't do you any harm anyway. Make the garlic solution with water as described in my post above. Apply it to the closed eyelids every hour during the day and every 2 hours during the night. Two days will be enough to see if garlic has any affect in your case, whether it makes their condition any better. Try this and let me know how it goes, write to me at  vasilenko.igor@inbox.ru Kind regards, Igor Vasilenko

      Man, I think you need to meet people before you disclose to them. Having said that, I've disclosed via text and that worked for me with my ex girlfriend. We were together almost two years. Gotta get out there and take a few hits, to iron out your approach.

      Shit now I'm worried.   My partner had no symptoms, and never has and does not know status.   Has gone to be tested too.  Recently cleared of other std's but honestly we never discussed HSV.

      Good question- someone here maybe Wilso will be able to elaborate on this, but I do believe there needs to be a certain amount of copies detected before it can be infectious.
