Hi Terri it’s been awhile I know I have 2 questions left but not sure witch account I have 2 because I could not log into the other . So please let me know . So I have been doing OK the past couple years until a month ago I was diagnosed with adenomyosis having slot of pain . Noticing more vaginal symptoms . So my main concern is because of this new diagnoses also my uterus is enlarged pushing on other organs is the trauma possibly going to cause more outbreaks . Can it effect the nerve of were my virus is . Also I’m going to have a hysterectomy soon will that trauma cause more outbreaks . I understand if u can’t answer that . I’m kinda just referring to trauma to awaken my virus if that makes sense. Any help would be great thank u
Morning update as of today this all started Tuesday July 4th just a red spot very little today pretty much gone. Never changed. Still would love your opinion . Can whitlow act this way . I’m doing everything I can to prevent this . Would having oral hsv1 for over 30 years help in not getting whitlow. Thank u
Thank u for your answers yes I am having a hard time with this and do need some help . This little girl is everything to me she has never had a sore on her mouth or vagina . The only thing she did have on her but we’re little tiny red bumps from being in a wet diaper alot she would get rashes like most babies . So as of today I saw her she has a red spot on her back up by her shoulder and one on her arm . So yes when I see this my heart starts beating fast and I worry . She never itches though like I said they don’t seem to bother her. . I am working on this I’m so sorry to bother you with it. I’m the only one who knows of my situation so your the only one I hAve to talk to . I promise I will work on this . My questions are
Is it possible to have it on your body only and never on face or vagina .
I have had hsv1 since 12 I hardly get outbreaks . Why is hsv2 so much more active . I get outbreaks quit often mainly itchy don’t see sores . I am very stressed wouldn’t it cause my hsv1 to act up as well . Will this eventually subside a bit after having the new virus for awhile ?
I read your answer about whitlow that I asked about . I have never had a sore or anything . I can live with the genital virus I would be devastated if I ever did get whitlow so I’m not taking any chances . I do wear gloves to wash my area . I don’t think I’ll ever get over that fear of transferring this to my hands . I appreciate your answer on that that it is not necessary but I’m sure u can understand my fear . Thank you so much for your time and patience with me
Hi Terri been awhile doing OK with my status some days are hard . Still scared once in awhile about infecting my nephew he gets red spots on his body once in a while doesn’t look anything like herpes I don’t think but I start to freak out he runs to me and hugs my leg I quickly push him off it’s horrible to have to live in fear like this I wish you would find a cure and you could charge people as much money as you would want up to thousands of dollars and I guarantee people would pay it haha anyway I’m wanting to know if it’s OK to go in a pool or Jacuzzi I take my nephew but I don’t go in as I’m afraid he will get it . If it is OK what about if I’m having an outbreak no lesions just tingling and itchy feeling and I go in a pool . I haven’t been swimming all summer because of this . Ugh I just want my life back . And just wondering why is Hsv2 so much more active than hsv1 I get a cold sore maybe once a year for about a week . I’ve been feeling hsv2 constantly since I was diagnosed last October . Will this subside soon . I feel so dirty and unsexy it’s been tough getting through this . Well thank u hope all is well with u . Please keep searching for a cure I have faith in you lol god bless
Thanks I have 2 threads I couldn’t log into my other account so made new one sorry. Well it’s a relief to hear HIV test is good . I was diagnosed with bv back in October before I found out about my hsv2 status took the medicine for bv seemed to be better Dr did swab sent to lab no bacteria no yeast that was around November . I’m going in next week for another bv test and gonna try to get swab also I can’t imagine an outbreak with no visible lesions would last this long but who Knows . Thank u for your response I believe I have one question left I will save it until I get results back . Thanks again
Hi Terri I’m living with the fact I have hsv2 I have had symptoms of itching and discharge for about 5 months now no lesions that the drs or I have seen had bv took medication fine for a bit I’m so confused on what is going on I just don’t feel right my whole body feels weird I’m worried something else is wrong I have had tests done on just about everything all negative anyway my question is the HIV test I have had 2 rapid HIV test in the past 2 years and both negative does this mean really negative. I see other post on different kind of HIV testing what does the rapid mean . Am I safe to say I’m in the clear . I’m not sick or anything do get dizzy spells but I am anemic. I’m hoping the feeling I’m having in my body is just nerves and anxiety . And last I asked a Dr at planned parenthood to do a pcr swab and she had no idea what that was . My question is can I get a swab done on my vagina with no lesions to see if what I have been experiencing is a constant outbreak or to see if I am shedding . Or if my bv has returned . Oh my main symptom is itching but only at night while I’m laying down not during the day is this typical in an outbreak . Thank u for all your help you are truly a life saver
Good morning so I went to the Dr today one of the drs that I saw before who said she saw no signs of herpes in my vaginal area told her I tested positive she seems to think I may have it orally seeing as how I only get sores on my lips . Either way I am doing well living with the diagnosis wasn’t at first but now I’m thinking more rational now just think of it as no big deal I get them on my mouth already . Could have worse things. So I’m waiting g for a sore to pop up on my lip so I can get it swabbed . So if I was to have hsv2 orally my question is my 16 year old son does get cold sores as well if I gave it to him when he was younger would it be considered hsv1 or 2 for him if mine is hsv2 orally or is it typed 1 or 2 because of the location. I’m going to have his next one swabbed as well . I really wish I could know where I have it . Ugh thanks Terry
Hi Terri my husband has not been tested he actually gets cold sores in his lips and nose quite often he has never had any genital symptoms he said he doesn’t care if he has it or gets it. He loves me anyway . We talked about it because I was freaking out he said we both have cold sores all the time that people can see already… down there they can’t . Not a big deal . My husband is the type that doesn’t stress on anything . Lol so he is right can’t change it if I do have it so why stress . Still today have had no sores just bv that I was diagnosed took the medicine and a yeast pill doing better just little discharge . I’m not sure when I will have an outbreak or if I will . Have had it awhile according to my index value . So my question is do u think I will have an outbreak or are the symptoms of bv part of it ? I read on on other post that herpes does cause bv can u explain why that is . And can bv be dangerous if still won’t go away after medication. Or will it eventually go away on its own? Thanks
Hi Terry u purchased more questions I have had 5 paps in 8 weeks went to several different drs for different opinions not one Dr had said anything about seeing hsv2. Only the last 2 times Dr has said bv . But my labs came back negative for bacteria . So I don’t understand how I have bv . So to answer your question I have not been tested for hsv1 .. I get outbreaks on my mouth occasionally. Since I was younger . None on my genital area . My husband of 13 years also gets cold sores never had genital sores either. So im wondering g if my hsv2 is oral or maybe the test was wrong somehow I have been reading about proteins in the blood tripping the test can u clarify . I would like to get a western blot how much are those . I just don’t understand why no outbreak in genital area but only mouth thank u
Hi Terry not sure if I have another question let me know if I don’t lol. I’m so confused on my results hsv2 positive at 5 so I have had it awhile never had symptoms except started 8 weeks ago burning itching for about 5 weeks no discharge at all have had 4 pap smears in that 5 weeks Dr. Couldn’t see anything finally got watery discharge Dr said bv no sores ever took antibiotics still burn and itch little if and on been going on constant for 8 weeks now had my discharge sent to lab came back negative for bacteria and yeast and this was before I started the antibiotics.no fevers just sore throat for a few days. I have a history of sores on my mouth when I was about 13 I had a horrible case of them and ever since I get them already twice a year sometimes just one sore sometimes 2 to 4 sores . People say they have genital outbreaks with period and stress I have horrible periods blood clots I have fibroids and an enlarged uterus . And I am extremely stressed out but still no outbreak .. my question is could my hsv2 be oral the ones I get on my mouth unfortunantly I was sexually active at a young age I can’t recall how I got my first outbreak at age 13 . I know you said genital herpes doesn’t persist for that long so I don’t understand if this is an outbreak with no sores and if my discharge came back with no bacteria found how do I have bv could that be a misdiagnoses . Please help me understand what to expect .
Yes Terri I believe you . I just typed in can children get hsv2 on the internet and med help popped up . I just don’t understand what is going on with her she was diagnosed with staph infection she always has blisters in her diaper area aleast that’s what the drs say it is. Her dad also has had staph infection . But she has never had any blisters anywhere else until lately on her face . She has a 5 year old brother never problems but I’m not as close to him . She hasn’t been sick or anything just runny nose . What if I have hsv2 orally does that change anything . I was doing OK the past week wasn’t worried but then her mom said she has bumps I freak out . I totally trust your opinion. It’s weird because I know I get cold sores already that can be easily passed and she has never had anything on her lips. I’m just over thinking . I appreciate everything you do .
Forgot to mention I’ve read post on med help and people talk about there kids having it . I don’t Know what to believe .my little girl wanted to come to see me today but I didn’t let her . Feel so bad I’m like a second mom to her I cry everyday praying I didn’t infect her somehow also if she did get infected would she be sick at all like flu or anything. Sorry Terri I am just so sick to my stomach
Hi Terri I think I have another question . I’m still freaking out about my friends daughter who is 2 we are very close she is my world she has had little bumps on her face and eye some on arms her mom took her to the Dr. Dr.said looked like bug bites then said it was hives . Since I found out I have Hsv2 I haven’t seen her I’m to scared I miss her so much . I think I have had hsv2 for awhile never had any sores yet but a couple weeks ago I did have a single bite on my calf then another single one next to my knee then another single one on my thigh that is all I have ever experienced they did itch for a day looked like a big bite had a little dot in the middle me we scabed or anything. I don’t know if that was an outbreak or not . My concern is my little girl . We would share food drinks give pecks on the lips take naps together . Is it possible I have hsv2 orally those are the only sores I have ever gotten since I was younger thank u
Thank u for your reply my last question is I have had symtoms of burning and itching on and off the past 5 weeks I do get a specific tingle only in one spot haven’t seen any lesions I was diagnosed with bv started getting discharge about 2 weeks ago I have a couple tiny whit bumps kids look like a white head on my vagina when I open it around by the uertha and it’s sticky I do have lower abdominal pain off and on kind of constant I have started antivirul 2 days ago my question is does this sound like bv or herpes outbreak I was checked for hpv in July 2014 was negative . I don’t know what else it could be I also get a pain on my rectum once in a while I have had a hemroid for years never bothered me before could it be fungal.
Thank u I am driving self crazy he went pee this morning a didn’t say anything . Would him getting sick the past 2 days also been with an outbreak ? I’m sorry I am just so scared I have been reading so much stuff . That’s all I do is read . I know people say yes kids can get it . I just have to do everything I can to protect him. . I do have a question about my symptoms the first 3 weeks were burning and itching . Not any lesions . On and off it comes and goes I do get a crawling feeling for a minute then stops I never itch down there I press on the spot then it stops . I do have all over body itching though I have had alittle bump on my ankle and wrist . My skin feels like it’s burning sometimes and bruised in some spots . Since I found out I have been isolating myself and very very worried and depressed I have lost weight I don’t eat . Anyway r these symptoms related in any way. Thank u
Terri we spoke a few days ago . I asked about my son getting hsv2 . Here is the thing for 4 to 5 weeks I hade symtoms of burning itching discharge went to 3 different doctors said it wasn’t hsv . So I went about my day as usual bieng at home not knowing I had hsv2 I was careless in hygiene with faucets bedding etc. The time between 4 to 5 weeks with those symtoms I never shaved the vagina area let it grow . But one time I did but just the bikini line . No where else . My son was at school at the time of shaving . So it was a good time in between I think he may have used my razor . I’m pretty sure he did . I told u noticed him itching a bit and a couple days later he got sick stuffy nose and cough he may have been a little warm in the morning but once he was awake he seemed to be ok .But he seemed ok after he woke up . Today he was in the shower and said ouch. I said what . he said it hurt to pee . Maybe he just had alot and qas holding it all night. He hasn’t said anything about sores or anything but he also might not notice because he isn’t looking for them . I have heard if you get sick it’s most likely with an outbreak. I don’t know . My question is can he get it from my razor? He doesn’t use it after me because he takes showers first. Like I said I used it once in 4 weeks . He doesn’t know my status . I am terrified . You did reassure me but when he said it hurt that scared the crap out of me . Please help scared I’m gonna ruin his life .
