Different ways that genital herpes manifests itself .......

Recommended Posts

My initial outbreak of genital herpes (HSV type 1), four months ago, presented as:


A painful ulcer at the entrance to the vagina and another painful ulcer near the urethra, along with the classic first time symptoms of very high fever, flu like aching of muscles, headache, painful urination.....


Symptoms started to resolve shortly after I started a course of famciclovir treatment.


Since my initial outbreak, I have not had another outbreak. However, I have noticed other things which make me wonder.......


I often feel tingling around my lips/nose (although no blisters appear)

I often feel an itch in my groin area (right at the underwear edge line along the thigh crease)

I have experienced a couple of bouts of quite noticeable anal itching and some blood (bright red) on defecation


Are these ways in which herpes can manifest itself? If I am having these symptoms regularly, should I be considering a regular routine of anti virals??


Any comments from herpes veterans would be appreciated........
