Im going to the planned parenthood tomorrow to have an official diagnosis... I went to urgent care last night and the idiot there told me it was ingrown hairs.... well it's obviously not that!

Here are some pictures, they are graphic, sorry not trying to offend anyone just trying to get some peace of mind.

I guess you know by now that photobucket will not allow you to post pics of this nature so a lot of us here won't see them. It's good that you are getting a second opinion from Planned Parenthood as they deal with STD's all the time.

I hope you get some answers from them, good luck with your appointment. Keep in touch.

thats ok...my doctor said that because they weren't inside it was probably just a yeast infection...then went forth to cut one of the sores off to have it tested anyway...then never called me back...I had to call him back to get my results.

well the doc visually confirmed both the wife and I have herpes... type un-known.

we're still in shock.

My wifes outbreak is much more severe than my own... she nearly screams every time she has to go to the restroom.

We're both taking 500mg valtrex 2x a day for 7 days.

Well, that's true it would really suck if just one of us got it... well sorta.

We are not... or I guess I should say were not in a monogamous marriage. What sucks is that we were very careful with who we played with, and only played with other people that were in the lifestyle, whom we assumed were safe and stuff.

Apparently not.

Oh well, we're not dying

      @srinivas thank you for the suggestion. Are you on antivirals? How long have you had HSV? How well do you feel now that you are taking the supplements?

      It doesnt really mean much yet. They still dont know if the herpes is taking advantage of a diseased brain or causing the disease. Furthermore, there is evidence that Alzheimer's might be caused by oral spirochete disease and even Lyme. Many of you could have oral Spirochetes but the Lyme and is less likely. https://globallymealliance.org/pathogen-cause-alzheimers-disease/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5008232/ https://newsblog.drexel.edu/2016/02/10/do-infections-cause-alzheimers-disease/   Of course it could be both! Maybe having hsv-1 and oral spirochetes quadruples the risk.  In my opinion the spirochete theory sounds more likely and its hard to dismiss neurosurgeons and caretakers getting Alzheimers from a disease that was previously thought to be non contagious. I'd worry more about Spirochetes.

      I wonder if people in the military are tested for hsv, because the general public isn’t. You have to specifically ask for it and many doctors don’t even see the point because it’s “so common”. It’s very possible he has it and has no symptoms or very mild random symptoms. Sorry to hear what you’re dealing with. It seems like women’s symptoms are worse than men’s.

      No that’s not the issue at all. The absolute vast majority of nerve pain is not caused by herpes. Hence it cannot be used to reverse engineer a diagnosis of herpes. That is exceptinally dangerous and we must do all we can encourage proper diagnosis.
