when i was first told that i had herpies, i was fine with it. my husband has been more than supportive, almost non-chalant in terms of how it would affect our life and has been blessing in my life in general, must be making up for all the previous a-holes i dated in the past . still, i haven't understood totally why so many people are devistated by this disease. its not cancer and it's not AIDS and it is not terminal. (i also understand that i am not single and looking for a partner so i do not mean to judgemental) i just feel like it's sore bumps that come and go and therefore you can have sex for awile and then you can't for awhile (unless you get creative). i honestly don't understand what the big deal is UNTIL.... i work at natural health food store and i am very much into holistic nutrition and alternative medicines. we often get to attend seminars that talk about varies subjects so that we, at the store, are knowledgeable about our products and other subjects that the customers come to us about. i went to one tonight and the topic was women and cancer. there now seems to be a connection between viruses and cancer (i know that cervical cancer and herpes is controversial and most believe that there is no real connection unless there is also the papillomavirus involved). however, they were talking about all viruses contributing to a variety of cancers, even to the point of not getting a flu shot as to not put another virus in our system. have i been ignorant all along and does anyone know more about this subject? is this what everyone has been freaked out about all along and i didn't know? herpes doesn't bother me but cancer is another story. please someone, enlighten me.

i don't mean to demean anyones emotions about being freaked out about this virus. it is very serious and it's scary to hear the words that you have actually tested posive for something other than the chicken pox. it just hasn't been something of concern for me until now.

I have absolutly no idea where these people are getting these crazy thoughts of viruses being linked to cancer... Next time your around these ppl tell them a thing or two from me... No I ain't no doctor, but I'm damn sure that there are no links between viruses and cancer... In my opinion this is a complete falsely... In all my readings I have never read anything about viruses (herpes) as cancer causing agents... HPV is the only virus that can cause a tumor, and thats only in women... Viruses generally damage T cells in the body which later rupture or absorbed by other T cells... I don't know much about cancer but it's bascially a grouping of bad (diseased) cell tissue attached to healthy living tissue, the cancer eats away at the healthy living tissue... I dont see a link, do you??? Your telling me that some ppl are actually telling you that flu shots are bad for you cause your introducing another virus into your system??? Come on who the heck is telling you this??? Next time anyone says that to you tell em that the flu shot is not a virus thats being injected into your body, but the shell of a cell that had been previously infected by the virus... As these shells are injected into you, your antibodies quickly go into action and absorb these damaged cells... Once absorbed, the T-cells in your body build immunity to the flu as if it was your body who once had the particular flu... Heres a statistic for you, 80 - 90% of the statistics you hear are made up :) Dont worry about cancer sweetie

      Yes, but every married person who I found out about that has this waited 6-8 months into the relationship to disclose it. But maybe you're right. If I had told her 6-7 months in, she'd still have Googled it and flipped out, and maybe it would have been harder then. I don't know. I don't see myself going through this level of pain and rejection so easily next time. I really don't. I'm taking the meds. I use protection. It's been almost a decade since I've had it so I'm not worried about shedding or passing it on so easily. British studies confirm that the first 2 years are the most contagious and we're passed that. I'm just over this. I've never been in so much emotional pain in my life.

      Is this herpes? I can’t find any pics that match this exactly and my symptoms don’t really match. I don’t have really any of the typical herpes symptoms other than pictured, so I figured it could be friction as I have recently been having a lot of sex with a new partner. Way more than normal. Started having unprotected sex about 3 - 4 weeks ago. These symptoms only started about 3-4 days ago. Felt burning in some areas and only some very few tiny red areas/spots appeared. Almost shiny in appearance. Seems to settle very quickly. They were only present for a day or so. Also had some very mild irritation after I pee but not during. This spot has 2 small red lumps that are now dry around the outside. It’s like it’s been rubbed off and the skin is dry and shiny underneath. It doesn’t seem to be lesion. There was no puss or any leakage, nor was the skin ever red under them. They also got better within a day or so. I still have red spots around but they are very small and not bunched together and some general discomfort but I feel it’s because I’ve touched it so much! Stressing a bit!  my research tells me friction burn/blister , Fungal ,herpes a bit of it all! I have no idea! Please help! Thanks in advance.

      I’m going to force him to get tested ! Thanks for your help !

      @EssenceL25 there really isn't a question mark around the source, it's your latest partner. The median time from infection to an outbreak of lesions upon initial infection is 4 days.  The only thing that isn't certain is the type I suggest.
