Thank you again for your patience. I am gonna try and live my life without so much stress and actually get more than a few hours of sleep a night. I think I am gonna still end up getting tested at least at the 8, probably the 12 week mark for peace of mind. Again thank you for everything.
The last thing I was also thinking about which caused the “patch” I had been sleeping with my hand between my legs wrapped in my sheets. I would wake up to numbness in my finger because of the pressure because once I moved my hand out I had feeling again. I think I may have actually irritated the skin enough to cause the first layer to protrude out, to resemble a patch or slight bump. I saw the piece of skin when I randomly woke up at night to look at my finger so it may make sense.
Again, I didn’t see any liquid after I picked at the skin so that is a positive, the skin kept peeling outward a bit but was only really noticeable when it was out in the cold(outline of layer of skin) or I looked very intensely at the skin(I knew what I was looking for as well). The skin was essentially fine in less than 10 days which seems really fast for an initial outbreak. I am assuming the pain in my fingers were due to dryness; I wasn’t really touching them, washing them (very much) or applying lotion.
These are all good right? I am sorry I was having a bit of a panic attack I think I need to speak with a professional about the emotional aspect. also, I was reading on line and the San Francisco City Herpes info said 6-8 weeks was a sufficient wait before testing but you and the doctors from Medhelp state 12-16 is ideal.
