I have oral and genital HSV1, diagnosed a little over a year ago. I am wondering, does anyone else get oral outbreaks that are primarily inside your mouth and not on your lips? When I get oral outbreaks, mine usually don't come with cold sores around my lips. The sores are only inside my mouth, usually on my gums, and they're pretty painful and annoying, as they get in the way of eating and brushing my teeth. This doesn't seem like a super common presentation of HSV1 because I can't find a ton of info about it online, but I know I'm not the only person whose oral HSV presents this way and I know they're not canker sores. I was wondering if anyone else experiences this and has any tips on how they deal with it. In particular, would love to know if anyone has any good tips for something that reduces the pain while you're waiting for the Valtrex to do its thing
I’ve made some posts earlier this month on my presumptive status.
I was tested 12 days since the initial exposure. The test results are back...
HSV 1/2 IgG Aby-HSV1 IgG, Type Spec <0.91 (0.00-0.90 index)
HSV 1/2 IgG Aby-HSV2 IgG, Type Spec = 1.27 (0.00-0.90 index)
HSV 2 IgG Supplemental Test-HSV-2, IgG Supplemental Test = Negative
All other stds came back negative. On the 10th day, white stinging cloudy discharge came out of the tip of my penis.
It still hurts to urinate, but not as intensely. What looks like “contact dermatitis” on the head of my penis but the bumps are sparsely patched and not filled with pus. On the day of my test, I was given 2 acyclovir and I felt like the symptoms went away for a few days.
No visible lesions and the culture came back negative.
But still, I was told to get retested 30 days from initial exposure (so July 18th).
I will get retested, but from the description provided above, what are the odds that the First test results are accurate and that I do have HSV2?
I don't know enough to distinguish if i'm in the healing stage ? it burns 50% less when I use the toilet , a little itching , no pain when I sit , or walk. Also, is the lightened skin normal ? how long does an ob usually last ?
So for starters I have had HSV1 on my mouth since I was a teenager and ten years later for HSV1 on my gums . So even though I know it is a small chance it passes to other body parts after years well it migrated to my mouth so it happens . So now to the point my partner and I both have Hsv1 he has it on his nose and me well lips and gums.
Last week thursday I got sugared in my lady area and the next day I developed one single bump on my labia . So Saturday I'm freaking out and go to doc she looks at it says it's a small cyst take some fucidin cream . I ask her to swab it she won't says no need. So off I go home put on the fucidin and it makes it itch an burn . I'm not happy with her to I go to walk in clinic again Sunday the and say I want it swabbed please . So I'm waiting at home literally filled with anxiety for two days than Tuesday night I get the docs call the lab messed up and I have to redo the test . So I go back in and retake the test Tuesday night . meanwhile this bumps is kinda staying the same but getting a little bigger it is itchy but not extremely . I can pee with no problem on itches to touch mostly or is bothersome if I touch it . Doesn't look like typical cold sore on my face at all. So today is Thursday and I checked it this am looked the same now two hours later I check again and there is blood inside this blister on two sides dark purple blood. Still itchy . My doc just called and says test was negative for herpes ..but part of me is worried what if when she swabed it two days ago there wasn't enough fluid BC there wasn't any just a sore . Am I over reacting should I swab it again or feel relief and move on to find out what it is which I'm going to anyway BC this is not normal also I'm not trying to be insensitive to anyone here . I signed up before I got the call and half way through writing this my doc called . I'm just really worries and anxious . Today will be one week I have had it . Can anyone give me advice like was it to soon should I repeat test any thing is helpful .
Lately I've been in this depressive state and it's mainly because of having herpes. I was diagnosed almost five years ago. I take Valtrex almost everyday. I use to take 500mg twice a day. Now I take it once mainly towards the evenings and I honestly feel like it does nothing. I have not been able to suppress this virus. It has been active in my system since I contracted it and I've tried everything in the books to fight/ get it to go dormant. I feel like I have one of the strongest strains of herpes and it's spread to other parts of my body. The reason I say this is because, for the past year or so I've developed other symptoms. I get a tingingly feeling in my back, feels like my spine and closer to my neck. I get these random headaches to the point where my ears start ringing and I have this swooshing feeling in my ears. I get confused and forget what I'm trying to say and my moods have been a lot more irritable. I still get breakouts and flu symptoms. The flu symptoms are swollen glands/ throat. Runny nose body aches and I cough up some nasty phlegm. My neck gets so stiff that can barely move it. I recently did some research on the different strains of Herpes and it lead me to encephalitis. When the virus spreads to your brain and causes your brain to swell. I don't know for sure if this is what o have but I'm driving myself crazy. I have to go to my GYN but the area that I live in your just a number to doctors and it's extremely hard to find a good physician who cares. No one knows that I have herpes so I don't have anyone to talk to about this. I'm sorry for such a long post but I needed to vent. I'm also wondering if anyone reading this has experienced what I have. Or has any experience with stronger strains of Herpes like encephalitis. Thanks for reading.
