Outbreaks & Pain

Recommended Posts



1. I am wondering how many of us are getting painful outbreaks.

2. Are they painful all the time or only in the beginning?

3. Are painful outbreaks usually bigger outbreaks (that is , more that 1-2 pimples/sores) or- it has nothing to do with size /area of OBs.

4. Is urination usually painful during OBs? Is it also ever accompanied by fever or other typical symptoms?


My OBs have never been painful, only if the sore gets stuck to my underwear.. I have solved it by using pantiliners - it turns out my sore doesn't get stuck to a pantiliner. I do not associate any fever or tingling with outbreaks, either.

Nevertheless, I always feel something is not right in that area. Recently I have been paying more attention to it hoping to find out if I ever feel right. Well, I do not know if this is the result of my paranoia, but this area hardly ever feels right.

Sometimes I wish I had more typical viral outbreaks I've read about here: with tingling, ob, oozing, crusting and it's all over. It seems like this kind of OB is easier to predict and control and it's over sooner. My painless sore seems to stay there forever, I don't notice exactly when it comes and it fades away very, very slowly over a long period of time.

It seems like I have low immunity and my virus is not in the best shape, either.:D

      PesPes, there is no cure. You can treat symptoms and try to prevent outbreaks, but you will always have the virus and be able to pass it along. There is NO CURE at this point.

      Based on the sheet below, it would be around 10% per year without condoms with no active outbreaks. With condoms, 5.2% and condoms and antiviral therapy combined around 1.5-2.5%  https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf

      So is there anyone that has tried this for which Valtrex/Acyclovir/Famvir doesn't work and have constant symptoms and problems?   It's expensive but if like 1 pill a week would work it would be worth it.....Trying to figure out if this works for people that the current AV's don't...

      Hi just wanted to share someone I found on Youtube who I think gives really good and honest herpes advice. She is an STD life coach who has had genital herpes for 9 years: https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC8AkCfC9_bcCvI7-sixkLJg/videos   Also check out Ella Dawson if you haven't yet seen her videos or website. Cheers:)
