Just diagnosed with herpes and everything itches!

Recommended Posts

OK- I just received my herpes diagnosis yesterday & have been trying to arm myself with info. Diagnosis was confirmed via blood test, which was requested after discovering my "exclusive" boyfriend of almost 2 years was cheating.....with TWO other women for at least the last 9 months. I'm having what I believe to be an outbreak, although I only have 1 "sore" that looks like an ingrown hair vs. a blister. However, everything itches!! Is this normal? Everything I'm reading says 1st OB is horrid-but to me, it's just very uncomfortable.


As an aside-I had all tests done about 4 years ago (all negative) when I got divorced. I'm confused by this. Is this normal? IS THERE a normal? (I'm giggling over that question...a little bit)
