  1. I have not tried that. I also have not done the Western Blot. The rheumatologist I saw told me that it's definitely possible that HSV could not be detected in my blood since it doesn't live there.
  2. Do your sores swab negative? I don't get the typical sores on the genitals, but I get sore-like acne on my face and back.
  3. I get the same run around. Some doctors tell me to go on living normally. I am almost to the point of seeing if I infect somebody else through sex.
  4. Which of these apply to you? Why do you think you have herpes?
  5. I am in the exact same situation! The only difference is I have met some specialists that admit I probably do have HSV.
  6. I called the office to ask about my results, and I was told the lab tested for 1 and 2. Results are negative, but herpes-like symptoms still prevail . . .
  7. I've been told similar things - stress, it's in my head, it's general irritation. I have itching in the genitals and anus on a daily basis, but no cremes or diagnosis has helped. I've started to get really painful acne on my face that all come on in a large mass and show up in the same specific areas. Popping them leads to weeks of healing, and then a small scar. I get acne on my back now that does not feel or heal like anything I've had prior to having unprotected oral and vaginal sex.
  8. For some, this is not just a skin condition. Some people have daily pain from HSV or multiple outbreaks a month/year. Not everyone's body reacts the same to HSV. I don't think this is worth having.
  9. I have this same problem on my upper lip. I had the flu in September and soon after had a lot of burning and tingling, and then developed a bunch of tiny white bumps. To this day, only my upper lip stays continually chapped and cut. Nothing helps. No positive test results, though.
  10. I've had genital and rectal burning and itching for almost a year. Tests still come back negative through blood and swab.
  11. I forgot to add that my skin on my penis and mouth cuts itself open in the same spots multiple times in a year. I also get sores in my nose on a rate that I've never experienced before.
  12. Symptoms are: constant redness, itching on genitals, groin and head of penis. Painful zits on inner thighs. Tingling urethrea with urge to urinate. Tingling nerves in butt, hands, arm, feet. Sore rectum with no obvious signs of problems. Randomly occurring rashes and red bumps in groin area. Burning upper lip, frequent sores in mouth, burning eyes, headaches, tingling in head, a frequent onslaught of extremely painful zits on neck and forehead. Loss or hearing and fullness in right ear. A girl I dated also caught the itching, dry eyes. Some doctors will tell me it definitely sounds herpetic, but I do not test positive. I've seen numerous specialists and taken a lot of tests that have yielded nothing.
  13. This is me, too! The mild lip burning cannot be explained by any Dermatologist or solved with any medication. Does your lip burn if you eat certain foods?
  14. The title says it all. I was swabbed for HSV 2 only on my genitals because the doctor told me it's not possible to have HSV 1show up on the genitals. My swab came back negative, but the doctor only tested for HSV 2. Is it possible I could have still have HSV 1, but not know it thanks to the doctor only swabbing for HSV 2?
  15. Sorry, I meant how were you diagnosed with HSV?
  16. I am suffering from the scalloped tongue, too. There has been a white film on my tongue for a few weeks now. The other mouth symptoms I get are long lasting sores on my gums, bleeding in the mouth, dry/cut upper lip. I had the flu back in September and a tingling started happening on my upper lip and a ton of very small white bumps shows up on just my upper lip. That is when the cuts/chapped lip started and no medicine has been able to cure it. The girl I was seeing back then also had the flu and developed the tingling/white bumps on lips. No doctor has been able to explain why this happened. Foods that are salty, acidic or high in wheat are setting off the pain on my lips and the swelling on the sides of my tongue.
  17. This doesn't explain how the girl I was dating had similar symptoms to me.
  18. This has been happening to me for 4 months.
  19. The tongue tingling happens to me! I had unprotected vaginal and oral sex, and now I have horrible symptoms all over my body that no doctor can figure out.
  20. Does anything set off the gurgle noise in your ears? I've had this for months and ENT doctors cannot find anything wrong with me. I also experience many other HSV symptoms, but cannot tests positive.
  21. Yes! I've yet to receive a positive, but several specialists have not been able to solve this. I've had a few doctors tell me that I could very well have HSV and it's not being detected by the tests. Did the cluster on your neck look like the images you'd see on Google images when you search "neck herpes"?
