First ob hell

I started to have moderate back and pelvic floor pains early last week I seriously thought I had a hernia at first.  I’d wake up with morning wood and that was very painful.  Anyways a few days later I started to notice a rash of bumps on my ass that would drain fluid if you touched or rubbed them then it got worse the next day the bumps had engulfed my scrotum, dick and where my ass connects?  It’s the most painful thing I’ve ever experienced it’s pure hell I can’t sleep or get comfortable because the sores on my ass.  I take aspirin and baths in epsom salt and that gets me a little relief but I’m literally losing it.  I’ve kicked opiates multiple times and this is right up there.  I’ve read on here a bit after coming to the conclusion I may have h.  I’m a little confused on what to do next I’m not going to my dr i know the nurses there just not an option where can I get the Valtrex subscription seems like that’s my only hope.  I’ve read with the blood test I should wait 12 weeks?  Also should I be resting or is it best to get up and stay busy and just fight through the immense pain? Thx in advance

@purehell you simply have to see a doctor, another doctor to your regular one or an ER department.

Whatever it is, you need appropriate treatment.

Went to urgent care earlier they visually confirmed the herpes but the swab test will be back tomorrow.  They gave me valtrax and sent me on my way.  I put the fan pointing at my ob and it feels so good I’m definitely sleeping like this plus it keeps it dry in my crotch any ideas how fast this valtax works? I was prescribed 2 1000mg pills daily

In my experience, i took my valtrex for 10 days twice a day. 500 mg each but i started to feel better not too long after taking it.

finally got some sleep last night the valtrex gave me anxiety any one else get that? Woke up and noticed  the first round of bumps have scabbed over so I was finally able to sit today.  Do I stop taking the valtrex after it all clears up there’s no way I could tale that stuff everyday  Any advice is welcome

I doubt the Valtrex is the causing all the issues you describe but yes you can certainly cease using it once through this episode.

Is the swab result due back today? 

What sexual partners have you had in the week leading into these sores appearing?

I mean when is your swab result due?

Based on what you describe, it would be best that you also immediately obtain a blood test, IgG antibodies type specific for HSV-1 and HSV-2.

Because 3 weeks is a long time between sex and an initial outbreak. The starting location on your butt is suggestive of a recurrent outbreak such that if it is herpes, it may be an older infection. A blood test now will tell you if this is a recent infection (in which case it will be negative or low positive) or a longer term infection (a strong positive result).

Then it’s not looking like herpes is a culprit here.

Return to your doc to discuss and get an IgG test.

      And yes i have never done a hsv1 and i think i prefer not to do it cause if i have also the antibodies i would make myself more crazy about the topic that i am already... i have that in mind always of 2016 when i had the discomfort tmdown there and then i saw blisters on ex boyfriend WEIRD @WilsoInAus

      @WilsoInAus it means a lot that u answered to me! Yes you are right i have been months like this.  Cause at first how does my gyn prescribe me a topica aciclovir when she told me she did not saw anything and then the second time she saws “blisters” which i dont and she prescribes valtrex oral.  Then i do the exams and are really onfusing. the dermatologist told me he did not see anything of herpes and also another gyn I went after the two times of going to my gyn of all life who told me and gave me the meds and he told me that i did not have blisters lor sores maybe they were varicose veins there. But id weird cause no one can tell me what is was. Why would it be red and itchy and ti gling on the same part as 2016? Right. And that many different exams wow

      When was your exposure though? Wasn’t it three years ago? Any symptoms outside of the genital area are not symptoms of genital herpes. Whether that’s on your hands or back etc. What are you talking to your doctor about, seems they aren’t doing their job if they keep testing you for something that you probably don’t have that doesn’t cause the symptoms you suggest.

      I was exposed to it I truly believe that I was! My body still doesn't feel completely right! Now I have a lot of new sypmtoms like nerve pain, plus I had all the symptoms minus the sores because I had hsv1 already kinda spared me (at least I think) Body had pain on one side of the body, burning tingling, on hands and buttocks and swollen underarms. I also had a low grade fever. (which are all known sypmtoms). I'm so tired of testing at this might be next week

      Hey @Samantha1997 this is all a bit confusing for you. I’m afraid that the best interpretation I can give right now is that you have a childhood HSV-1 oral infection that is producing erratic combined IgG test results. It would seem likely that you do not have a HSV-2 infection. And likely that you do not have genital herpes. However your suspicions need investigating. clarity could be achieved with the following: - a swab of a freshly emerging lesion - IgG testing that is type specific for HSV-1 and HSV-2.
