Thank you so much for your reply Terri. You are basically the sole expert on hsv and I’m grateful. Your opinion comes as much expected. Given the lip blisters and indeterminate result at 7 weeks, I imagine I’m almost certainly positive, question is 1 or 2 or both (mouth only or penis as well, despite the fact that no antibody test can discern).
My partner won’t get tested, she’s a terrible person, This is my burden alone.
As symptoms vary from nothing to awful for hsv (most people have nothing) I’m curious about the tiny red bumps on my glans (appeared 6 weeks after the lip blisters healed..I think?) which I THINK are new..never noticed before..do not “get better” or “get worse” or change at all over a month plus. They are noticable in some light, less pronounced in others (especially when erect, but even then almost non-existent, not raised, 1/16″ in size, 2 or 3 of them. They are identical to the ‘papules’ I’ve always had…I just don’t recall them being where they are but my mind is a disaster so who knows). If they are herpes, how long should they last? I expect they CAN remain permanently or for a year plus (literally anything’s possible, everyone’s different with hsv, nothing “isn’t herpes” based on looks and duration, I know).
Can I get a WB from Ottawa, Canada? I’m very interested in the exact process and willing & ready.
Have you often seen indeterminate IgG’s done within 3 months go positive at the 3-6 month mark? I know, difficult to predict, just seeking a sense, I’m basically sure I have it.
Ever heard of a primary HSV infection causing a tooth abscess infection in a vulnerable (already cracked) molar or tooth? Seems to me the virus would cause that bacterial infection that I had by attacking the exposed tooth route nerve, resulting in it’s decay, death and then bacterial infection…the pain began 2 days after exposure and about 3 days prior to lip blisters. It can’t possibly be a coincidence, even given the weekend of sun & booze.
