Hi Everyone,

I haven't been on here in awhile because my outbreak has not left me since I last posted. That must have been in March.

It first came like a big ulser and then exploded. (I have hsv 1 by the way). Then since then I have had a little white dimple in the same spot. I have tried breaking it with a needle and letting the healing take place but it just goes back to this white dimple.

My question is:

Is this still the herpes present and contagious on my body?

This herpes has destroyed me and I have secluded myself from society.

I have had guys interested in me but I push them all away. I am very depressed and watching my life spiral down the bin knowing I will never have what I was once worthy of.

How can I get rid of the herpes? I have tried the Zovirax 400mg tablets for months and all the anti virals around. I am marked I feel with this curse forever.

Now for you, the something positive. I am hoping this white dimple is nothing or that you might know of a way to rid it I have not tried yet.

Thank you for help and your time.

Best,

Damaged

please do not think i am making light of this but i have hsv 2 and i break out on my back when i tell someone i have it most are ok i do it after a bit of getting to know me. you do not have the plague. 1 in 4 people has it on their genitals it may just be dormant and they have not had any symptoms i believe most people would keep this infection knowledge to themselves and not tell anyone so as not to go through the pain you and i have to when putting ourselves out there. know you are not alone. you are very courageous do not give up on finding someone who will love you for who you are not a skin virus which is what it is a skin virus with a terrible stigma. peace to everyone suffering with this and it is painful but there are many meds out there find a doctor who will help and listen to your concerns the foods you may be eating may be aggravate this virus look up all the info you can in books and the internet. many blessings...

Dear Tulipblossom,

I am in tears. I have not addressed this problem as mentioned for months.

I wish the Zoviraz was working for me. I guess I do need to go and see my doctor. I am a giant herpe. I saw a dimple on lower eye lid a couple of days ago. I scratched it away and cautiously applied the CHoraphor or Damiclear whatever.

How can I rid this dipple. Should I scratch it off deeper with the needle? I know it it not medically advised but would this work? Thank you again Tulipblossom, I pray for all of us, that there is a cure coming in the next decade if not sooner. I want my life again. I want to remember what it feels like to be "normal".

Damaged, don't give up hope.. see your doctor about this dimple to figure out what it is and what to do about it. It doesn't sound typical of herpes.

Thanks VVK,

I hope it is not typical but I think it is from reading other posts way back when. Tullipblossom said I was courageous for not giving up but I have. I guess I need to call my Doctor monday. Bring in the new year in style.

By the way everyone have a great new year and may our dreams come true.

something positive

Don't give up hope and look at the positive side of things, you're still alive. Don't turn away from people because loved ones are the easiest way to cope, in my opinion. You never know if you're missing out on the best friends of your life because you're too afraid to talk to them. If someone doesn't want you because of a skin virus, then that's not the type of person you want to be around anyway. Take care, and best wishes.

      @Talx2520 based on what you say, Im not sure the odds exceed 50/50 that you have genital herpes. If you take a random genital infection from vaginal sex then about 95% of the time it’s HSV-2. How long after the episode was the blood test?

      Thanks for the response! My first suspected outbreak was definitely painful. Started with what felt like a UTI, then noticed what looked like ulcers starting 1.5 days after unprotected sex. Never scabbed over, but I had a horrible itch that lasted 2  weeks (didn't feel like yeast). Given my symptoms, I've pretty sure its genital herpes, but I mean it could have been some allergy (I had extremely rough intercourse in the middle of the wilderness, sorry if that is tmi lol and maybe naive of me to think it was a weird plant). Both my mom, sister, and grandma get coldsores and I feel like i've totally shared drinks with them even during their outbreaks. Can't remember if I ever had one though. I am not totally sure how I should go about disclosing in general. Should I mention I had a full panel and hsv-1 came up positive and that I am not sure where it is? I really wish I had just gotten it swabbed, but couldn't afford it without insurance at the time. I was under the impression that if it was herpes, it would come back and I could get it swabbed, but I realize now that with HSV-1 that isnt always the case.

      @viralfrog given your symptoms do not react to any known antiviral doesn thatvsuggest these are not herpes lesion?  Lets apply Occam’s razor here.

      @Lulupazoola I have tried with a straw but it's difficult to create enough suction if the straw is deep enough in your throat  After drinking 6g from a shotglass I immediately drink a glass of water to dilute it down the throat.  Little update: blisters, redness and lethargy are back today. I'm still off the antivirals completely and my outbreaks are not any worse than usual for now. That's interesting, it seems I don't react at all to Acyclovir.

      Technically speaking, someone with a strong immune system could have a mild initial outbreak. Normally, they would remain mild and decrease over time. However, if you put yourself in a situation later that gives a big hit to your immune system (e.g. binge drinking, other illness, no sleep etc.) you could have a bigger outbreak as a result.
