I went to the ED and they prescribed me valtrex 500mg twice daily which didn’t make much difference for the constipation but did alleviate that groin sensitivity. They also took a viral culture swab of the anus which came back negative.
By late march the constipation started declining and I almost had normal bowel movements again. The little circular face rash was still there.
Fast forward to present day. The circular face race is beginning to come down, facial skin is still breaking out. And the constipation has come back. I see a little bowel movements and even in my stool there is some white/clear looking type of mucus here and there.
I have never tested for HSV before but I’ve also never had a coldsore in my life.
Normally, I wouldn’t be that worried about something like constipation, but the loss of bowel movements and anus discomfort had me completely had me worried.
What are your thoughts on this in terms of exposure? I’ve scheduled a blood test to find results for this 1.5 month mark to see if I do have any form of anti-bodies forming or not.
1) Is it possible that she had oHSV2 and was shedding while giving oral at that time? and this encounter would transmit it to me anally? Or maybe it was the initial genital rub that she did that transmitted the virus to my pubic region (never shaven, only trimmed)?
2) Could these symptoms be still possible if she maybe had oHSV1 and transmitted that strain of the virus to me instead?
