My whole body has never itched before. The only itching I've had was my prodrome symptoms, but those only happened in the exact spot where my herpes outbreaks happen, nowhere else.


However, I have seen from a few other community members on this forum that talk about itchiness. Here's one, for example:



So ultimately, there's no way to know for sure if your itchiness will lead to an outbreak until you actually get an outbreak or not. That's the importance of getting to know your own unique prodrome symptoms. Everyone is slightly different. The longer you have the virus, the less outbreaks you'll have and you'll also get to know how your body is telling you if another outbreak is coming on. Here's a blog article I wrote on that:

When I had what seem to be a scratched skin two years ago down there, well atleast that was the doctor said... I am not sure if I had experienced anything else after that.. Then last month there was flu like symptoms, back and shoulder ache then presto three big blisters down there.. What's so ironic is that I never had anything in three months... I mean sex. So I was like what the hell is this? In the internet, they said that initial attack would include flu like symptoms and muscle pain and that prodrome is tingling, itching and burning. But the thing is, when the doctor put me in Acyclovir...the sores went away quickly like within three days and five days after like I got my period I had one small blister again...so I needed to take the meds again for five days and after that I experienced flu like symptoms again for a few days without any tingling, itching, burning. Then I had unprotected sex. The day after I had the tingling, itching and bumps.. The day before that I went to see the doctor asking her if I am having an outbreak especially because I wasn't well for a few days already. She said I'm fine no sign of lesions she took some vaginal discharge and said that no hsv at the moment just some bacterial infection. So i need to take antibiotics. The sex probably triggered the OB or is it asymptomatic shedding? She said the fever might be something else and that if I feel pain down there then that would be n outbreak? Does that made sense? The bacterial infection was understandable on my part because I have been tinkering with my flower for like hundred times a day always on the look for lesions somewhere else... Really paranoid. I still get low grade fever up until now that the last OB are almost healed. Which i suspect probably from my blood pressure as I am very tensed since March and more since I made a mistake of sleeping with a guy without saying hey I probably can't. I get normal temperature when I try to calm myself.. And please shed some light on me with regards to the prodromal symptoms...would that be flu and itch nd stuff or just the itch. The first time I saw this doctor last March I am not so sure if she made the viral culture or just ocular inspection. And when I suggested what about I take the blood test she said I can but I don't have to because I will get the same result. Sometimes I think I don't want to come back to her anymore...
