  1. I've not had sex since my proper diagnosis in March, but back when I thought I had HSV (but not testing positive) sex would bring out a ton of redness on my thighs and above my penis. This would be accompanied by rashes that itched. My scrotum also itched and turned red.
  2. They tested negative through blood and swab as of last year, but we no longer speaker, so I don't know of her current status. Things didn't start happening because I thought really hard about it; they happened 2 days after sex. The flu-like symptoms and mouth symptoms didn't start until 4 month later after I was exposed to sunlight for hours ( a known trigger for HSV) My eye doctor sees damage similar to ocular herpes, but doesn't see the strand in my eye. Neither of the 2 ophthalmologists would take swabs of my eye. In tears of redness, the head of my penis has turned red, and some skin near it has done the same. I also now have little circular red dots that show up on my thighs if I masterbate. I saw a neurologist and the test were negative, but this was also when I found out I had HSV1 via blood test. He told me has seen patients with HSV who get the tingling in the head, brain fog, and confusion just like I do.
  3. Anti virals help with the headaches and dry eye. It hasn't helped the other symptoms -- burning, itching, skin changing colors, nerve tingling.
  4. If you were infected with oral HSV as an adult, do you find yourself getting frequent headaches or brain fog/confusion?
  5. I didn't test positive for HSV1 until 11 months later.
  6. I have all of these same symptoms minus the butt issues. I tested negative for 11 months until two IGG test taken in one month turned positive for HSV1
  7. How long does your pain last if you don't take the meds?
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Which of these apply to you? Why do you think you have herpes?
  12. I am in the exact same situation! The only difference is I have met some specialists that admit I probably do have HSV.
  13. 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 . . .
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. I've had genital and rectal burning and itching for almost a year. Tests still come back negative through blood and swab.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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?
  21. 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?
  22. Sorry, I meant how were you diagnosed with HSV?
