      Thank you

      Hey @Aubrey77 these symptoms are not something that oral HSV-1 can cause. In the end herpes would do what it does best and this is cause a sore somewhere on the lips . It might tingle a little as it forms, be inconvenient as it blisters and then crust as it heals and all look a little unsightly. But that’s herpes.    No reason to disbelieve your doctors thoughts on your issues.

      Any feed back is welcome. I get these small bumps inside my right cheek. They do not hurt or burst. They just come and go. I showed them to doctors and the say they come up with stress and foods. Problem is I have pain and muscle spasms down right arm and in legs. Are these all ongoing issues for getting virus? I am not sure was going on with my body anymore

      Update: met with PCP Friday to get a referral to neurologist. During the discussion he discussed my low white blood cell count from a test I took in February. My count is/was 3.61. I asked him if that could be contributing to slow development of antibodies. He didn’t really react to it much. With that said, I did take another IGG test Friday which came back negative. I’m at week 12 post suppressive therapy and week 14 total without taking AVs. I emailed Terri Warren to see if she feels I need to wait longer to take the western blot to allow my WBC to increase and/or allow antibodies to develop. I want to use the WB as the final step in my testing journey and I don’t want to have to question the results.    Anyone have any experience or knowledge of someone with low/lower WBC and how long it took them to seroconvert?

      Does anyone know what the side effects of pritelivir are?  Has anyone on this site actually tried it?

Convinced that herpes causes itching in everyone surrounding you

I’m totally convinced that herpes causes itching in everyone surrounding you. I’ve been seeing how people can notice etc. No, people just don’t scratch to scratch. People don’t live scratching themselves. We who got herpes cause itching to others. Watch your surroundings, watch the people around you and you will notice. Don’t now how yet there’s nothing doctors could say about this.

That's really not how it works.

With all due respect, that’s not true

Sorry you are getting responses that are condescending and unhelpful. Ignore those who don't add anything of value.

Herpes is not known to cause itching in all people around you. They would not be infected unless you had intimate contact with them or they somehow came into contact with your sores and then touched parts of their body that can be transmitted into.

@Frank12

You know Frank, ever since I started reading your comments on this thread, I started developing an itch; LOL

You have to admit, Frank's comment is pretty comical. That said, thanks for explaining to him

I know I’m not getting useful responses at all and that my comments may sound a little comical or whatsoever. But what I’ve described is exactly with I’ve been experiencing. Everywhere I go people around me seem to develop some type of itching which sounds crazy because apparently nothing can cause this. I understand your explanation but thought there might have been others effects like this one on people like me

It’s probably scabies.

They once thought it was, they gave meds for it to treat it but that was about it.

Sometimes scabies can be difficult to clear up. Try always sunlight on your bed with covers off during the day etc. Sunlight on all your furniture - steam cleaning too. Scabies is seriously easy to pick up and almost ubiquitous. So much so it’s common for social workers to never sit in clients chairs etc they always sit in the arms of the chairs. Also like any pest or infection while meds are helpful for vast majority subsets with weaker immunity can be not as helpful. Strengthening overall immunity could help.

I’m sure I’ve seen whole threads on the internet with people having persistent long standing issues with scabies infections just as you may see with rare subsets of those with HSV.
