on the outer thigh?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone experienced herpes sores on their outer thigh--what might be called the "saddlebags" on the legs?

The doctor today diagnosed shingles as the culprit. Blood tests pending until mid-week. No previous history of shingles, cold sores, or herpes. No sores on my genitals, though I am having vaginosis (I'm female). I've had sex with a new partner within the time typical for an initial outbreak. No fever, flu-symptoms.

Hi nervous,

Read your other post and thought I would respond here as it doesn't disappear as quickly as the outbreak section.

Yes it is possible to have a herpes OB just on your thigh but you may know for sure when your test results come back.

As for BV it generally presents like you describe, it could be grayish in color also and usually has a fishy odor especially noticeable after sex. I personally have never experienced itch with BV but irritation is common which I suppose could cause it to be itchy. Hopefully your Dr tested for all possibilities, BV is generally easy to get rid of.

Hope you feel better soon.

      No I didn't ever have hsv 1 before (was tested in spring). This was a recent exposure. The ex had an outbreak on his genitalia so I got tested. No symptoms but positive for hsv 1 now so how do I know if it's cold sores or gHSV1

      If you've never had any symptom I expect you prob have HSV1 from childhood and not genitally.

      I have hsv1, i got off of birth control about  9 months ago, so i dont think this can still be hormonal acne. Why is this happening too meee. Its just getting worse overtime and ive had this happening for a good 3 weeks now just getting worse and worse. They are mostly on my cheek area, but i will get occasional single pimples around hairline or forehead . This is the worst its been! Anyone else have had this issue ? Its gross

      yeah, I got HSV from him and HPV . I'm pretty sure the HPV is from him too but no way to be 100%. I have never tested positive for that before though. The coincidence is too much.   How to trust somebody?? I really don't need any more gifts.

      Since he has given your H then I advise you to make sure that  he's not giving New gift this time  ( another lovely virus) otherwise have sex as you like but not with ob's. I say that because it happened with so many people and I don't want to mane any. Thanks

      I'm so confused! My IgM was positive yesterday and today I found out the IgG test came back that I am negative for HSV2 but showed evidence of IgG for HSV 1 (she said I needed to retest in 3 months).  I've never had ANY symptoms ever. So do I tell people I have genital herpes or do I tell them I just have cold sores virus?  I have no way of know if I have it on my mouth or below! What do I do???
