Thanks for getting back to me.
So the blister on my butt could it have been shingles? It was not painful at all Just extremely itchy. It started out red then the blister formed again I have had nothing like that in 26 years? So if you have shingles how long does it take for antibodies to form for that? Is it ever just one blister?
I understand HSV-1 and HSV-2 look exactly the same and I understand that HSV2 occurs more often, are the blisters worse and more painful?
What percentage of people have HSV2 orally?
And how is HSV-1 and HSV-2 managed differently? And does the treatment very according to a primary outbreak or is it different or something that may have been there 26 years.
Of course my hope is that this is HSV one genitally because I definitely have some thing.
I’m so mad I did not keep any records I know you said don’t be mad but it’s so hard I think my mind would be so much more at ease if I just had that report.
I guess there are just are a lot of people that weren’t even aware that they had it and get blindsided by it and and start wondering how and from whom they got it from. Std test should include herpes
I was able to contact the person from 26 years ago of course he’s just telling me he doesn’t remember anything and he had a blood test it was negative and I didn’t get it from him, that he’s never had anything in the last 20 years and his wife never got anything but I believe what happened is he was having a primary outbreak and he touched me even though only for a few seconds I contracted it because it was the primary outbreak . I know deep down that’s where I got it from I was just trying to find out if his blood test was HSV one but he is not going to cooperate with me.
I know it is what it is and I have to just go forward it’s just very hard. especially when I never said anything to my husband and I am afraid that he will think that I was cheating on him but of course I never did.
Thank you for your time and understanding.
