Hsv2 on genitals 8 weeks ago but I’ve been breaking out with acne on my chain since . Like super bad.

Recommended Posts

I was infected with hsv2 anally 8 weeks ago but I’ve been breaking out with acne on my chin since . Like super bad.my roommate keeps saying I got herpes on my face but I think it really is acne it pops just like zits I’ve had in the past . And it’s not around my mouth . It literally on the lower part of my chin. Is it Herpes? Or acne and why has it been so severe . I’ve gotten the occasionally zit before but not this many and once I pop one and it goes away a new one will come by the next day.

Also when I did have an outbreak genitally and was on meds it did nothing to help my acne.also I tested negative for hsv1.

It’s probably the stress linked to having HSV-2 causing you to break out since I’m sure it can’t be actual herpes on your chin

Thanks , I’ve never had acne before and my roommate knows about my genital herpes and keeps telling me that I got it on my face too so it makes me feel paranoid and disgusting. I’ve only had it 2 1/2 months so I’m still dealing with the shock and shame

When I was first diagnose with hsv, my chin did the same thing. I read that your face breaks out in certain areas due to stress in certain parts of your body. It gets better over time!

I’m not diagnosed with HSV, but have many of the symptoms.

My forehead and behind my ear break out constantly with whiteheads

It was huge pimples on my chin that hurt like crazy...but as time went on they improved. I have genital hsv.

You need to stop doing this, both for you and for the other people that you are going to freak out by doing this. Have you had the Western Blot yet?
