I apologize. I renewed my subscription and have another question for you .
I went to try and get the area on my lip swabbed today because I did notice a rash but the urgent care said it wasn’t anything to swab and that it didn’t look like a cold
Sore . But my lips are super dry , I feel tingling and I’m just really scared and want to know where I’m infected. It’s becoming depressing for me and I’m honestly crying as I’m typing this to you. I feel gross . What would be the best thing to do in this situation ?
Thank you for getting back to me . I totally agree with you about none of these symptoms being hsv related but it’s the coincidence of all of this happening right after seeing someone new and only having a positive hsv1 test . So one would assume it to be related but I’m trying to get to the bottom of this as we speak . Also I believe The infection was not an old infection. I’ve only been with my kids father (my first ) and this new guy . Kids father is clean and so was I. That’s how I know for sure where it came from .I’ve had chicken pox as a child but that’s it nothing else blistered on my face or body. Never slept around or kissed people.
My question is
I got another test this past February which was 16.30 ? Why is it going up and so high ? And is the range normal for my time frame ?
Also since I’m pretty sure my primary outbreak was genital and not oral. Is that a good guarantee that it’s only genital and not oral ? Or would I have had a primary outbreak on my mouth as well . I’m just really confused and want to make sure I’m safe to kiss my babies again which is bothering the most . My kids are everything to me and I would not want to harm them in anyway .
Thank you for your time !
Can I also break out on other parts of my body like forehead , hairline, chest, Shoulders etc.? Because I’ve been getting weird acne looking itchy bumps since Feb thats not going away and if they do they come back in same spot and is spread over my entire face . Doctors swabbed one lesion and it showed bacteria.
I also had my igg levels checked out and my IG3 level was a 10 which I’ve been told is extremely low . Do you think my body isn’t fighting the virus ?
I’m just really confused and want my life to start getting back normal again but it seems that won’t be happening because I’m reminded everyday with all my symptoms and I’m terribly afraid of passing this to my kids because of my constant symptoms and the antivirals are not doing anything for me.
They treated me with Acyclovir and flagyl in the hospital .Nothing helped or Improved. I was discharged and sent home on medication. Which have not helped . I’ve literally been in hell for 6 months now . I was a healthy 150 before messing with that guy and I have dropped to 125 and even got down to 115 and still am no able to gain anything . My body has been taking over from something . I am always warm , I feel tingling sensations in my legs all the time , even my arms too . I more worried because A cold sore is trying to form on my lip last night and I can feel the tingling and it hurts. I have 2 kids and I’m deeply afraid . This has ruined my life . I just don’t look or feel like the same person . My health has definitely been compromised due to hsv. I’ve seen 2 obgyn , Gi doctor , my pcp , Ent doctor and even seeing a rhemotologist . Everyone says blood work is fine and I’m fine but they can see something is wrong . My question is have you seen this happen before? Why would a sore pop up this late if I had it orally too ? My doctor has me on 1 gram valtrex but why isn’t it helping with symptoms ? This virus is very very tricky. Sorry for the long post .
Which showed nothing and they even over looked my vagina swelling and said to go see obgyn. Bumps started to form on my vagina near my clitoris . I eventually told my kids father everything because I then became extremely worried. I then realized every are std test I had gotten didn’t include hiv or herpes . I went to anylabtestnow Dec 11th and asked for both . My results came back Dec 15th I will never forget . Everything negative accept hsv1. My range was 5>. I cried my eyes out. I could not believe it .I went back to the same obgyn with my results and she basically brushed me off saying that’s not an std and she can’t give me anything and that the bumps
On my vagina were razor bumps which I knew they weren’t and hurt. I left and never went back to her . I went to another ER and she swabbed me down low and gave me Acyclovir and a shot of antibiotics because I also had strep . my symptoms were sore throat, fever , night sweats ,extreme dry mouth and lip swelling ,rash on hands , lost of weight , vagina swelling and bruising on legs and arms. The doctor at the ER gave me a hiv rapid test because she was worried it was. But everything was negative hiv , mono , syphillis and trich. My results from the hsv swabs came back negative as well . Which I was confused about because I had tested positive on igg test . The acyclovir cleared the bumps but the other symptoms never left . I eventually was admitted to the ER on Jan1st 2021 for the abdominal pain,fatigue , diarrhea, vaginal swelling ,bottom lip swelling and night sweats .I spent almost 2 weeks there . I had ct scans done which showed kidney hydronosis. I had a colonoscopy and endoscopy done because they suspect it’s Crohns because of my extreme weight lost in 3 months . Ran blood test and everything looked fine . The Obgyn I seen while there said it could be swollen from Crohns and I was trying to explain to her it’s been like that ever since I slept with the long time friend.
