Strange feeling

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,  I have both HSV 1& 2 and I have a question about it. So my first outbreak was in the labia major (outer labia) and even when I don’t have an outbreak if I lay on that particular side or wear a certain pair of jeans it gives me a weird feeling. I’m not sure what that means or what that is. It’s somewhat hard to explain.

Hi @DoHope35! How long have you been a carrier? In the first year of having herpes, you can tend to have more sensations in the infection/outbreak zone as the body gets a handle of the new virus in its midst. The "weird feeling" sounds like it may be prodrome symptoms, too. Are those feelings followed by an outbreak? Or are they pretty consistent when you wear those pants, for example?

I’ve been a carrier since February. It’s more so when I’m laying on my side or if something rubs against it like my underwear/pants, but it’s not my pants all the time. I try to wear cotton or yoga pants. I’ve heard of prodrome symptoms but I’m not exactly sure what that is. However it’s more consistent when I’m applying pressure to that side like when I’m laying down. I don’t normally have an outbreak following, if I do I don’t really notice it. My first one was February when I first became a carrier, the second one from shaving/stress and the last one was from getting in the pool right after shaving which caused irritation. So I can’t say I notice and outbreak right after.
