Hi, i got reccurrence now, i think the virus has gone, but it left an open skin. since it’s in genital area,,,i’m a bit worry but i dont know what to do. I haven’t had an outbreak for ages now and only get the tingling which doesn’t come to anything, you just need to try not to get too stressed, get plenty of sleep and try and eat healthily. Im really scared though, my mom has herpies but she still enjoys regular day life. If you wait to long it will be worse so I HOPE you can find someone to take you really soon.

Myth 7: I’ve only had sex with one person so there’s no way I could have gotten an STD. I have a child and im scared can my child get it?? also if i get the vaccine now not knowing if i have it or not would it help?. One night we had sex, and it was pretty rough (a trigger for a herpes outbreak). I woke up feeling sore but thought it was just because we had gone at it pretty hard.

While you can certainly get herpes 2 on your lips and herpes 1 on your labia or penis, this is mostly likely going to be a one shot deal. Thats not true if you have had oral sex with your partner and he has cold sores that is how you have got it,l got it that way its just bad luck. If someone has HSV 1, and only experience cold sores around the mouth, can they still contract HSV 2 and experience sores around the genital area from someone with HSV 2?. But now I am thinking that since I actually haven’t been tested do I really have it? I haven’t had sex yet, but I have bumps on my scrotum and penis. I think I may have a venereal disease.

I am going through my first herpes outbreak and I just wanted to know what you guys have to say from what you went through. I first got a really bad yeast infection and took monistat which did not help and when i noticed the next morning, bumps around my areas i knew deep down what it must be but didn’t want to face it so i assumed oh it must be an allergic reaction to the monistat cream. I’ve been so lucky I haven’t been someone where H really reoccured but this complication from the first outbreak was pretty bloody traumatic, embarrassing and just generally a massive bummer (pun intended).

I haven’t had unprotected sex with anyone I did receive oral but I would’ve notice herpes on someone’s mouth. I think you would’ve noticed herpes on anyone u may have come in contact with and from my understanding u can only get it if the person is having an outbreak at that time. Hope this helps.

It’s spread by vaginal, oral, and anal sex, so unless you’re abstinent or your partners haven’t had sex of any kind, you can’t totally safeguard against it. Who would want to sleep with someone who had herpes? What do you think? I had heard the word herpes, but I had no real idea of what it was.

I think the best answer is to treat your condition matter-of-factly. I thought that if I meet someone, and there seems to be some sort of vibe, I would have the talk pretty quickly, possibly even the first date. He can ask you questions, research it, digest it, but understand that it’s not a big deal. Let’s put it this way: If I had sex with a woman, got herpes, and later found out she knew she was exposing me to the virus without telling me in advance, I’d sue the the living daylights out of her. But viral replication generally occurs before a person shows symptoms, so it’s difficult to judge when acyclovir should be taken.

Lysine can help. I met someone online who did the following: 1 week of 1 teaspoon of diatomaceous earth in 6-8oz of water twice a day, the second week up it to a tablespoon of diatomaceous earth in 6 oz of water twice a day, at the end of the second week take two teaspoons of colloidal silver twice a day concurrently with the diatomaceous earth, continue with both the diatomaceous earth and silver during the 3rd week, then, start the hydrogen peroxide protocol on the 4th week. 3 times day, then 4 drops the next day, and so on. But after 10 drops, add two, so 12, 14, 16. But with the peroxide, I can’t, because it has to be taken on an empty stomach and/or 3 hours after having not eaten anything.
