Ok so my sister had what she thought might have been on outbreak like 10 years ago but the swab was negative and she never got a blood test, so they told her if it comes back its herpes and if it doesn't well it was something else. However she was diagnosed with HPV genital warts. well now she has been having a constant itchiness after sex with her husband for years. they keep telling her it's just a yeast infection, but she is soooo uncomfortable. they did a byopsy last week will herpes show up on that??? or could it be something else more serious like cancer???? Scary....

Hopefully everything comes back normal and I'm hoping the best for her. I don't know if they will check for herpes unless specifically asked for. Warts in and of themselves can cause itch so that could be why she is always itchy after sex.

Cancer is always a concern after one has contracted HPV. it was only 7 or 8 years after contracting HPV that I got a cancer diagnosis if you saw my other post. Hopefully she has been on top of her annual paps and caught it early if it is cancer. There is a very high survival rate when caught in the early stages, 23 years and counting here.

Yes, she needs to get her reg. paps. Hpv is nothing to fool with b/c it can lead to cervical cancer. She really needs to go to the doc to get tested for both - herpes and cancer. Plz don't let her just let this go. Early detection is crucial.

      @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.
