I have HSV-1 genitally and last time I had a UTI I was prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tibiotics I had an outbreak, although I began my 2-day <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>acyclovir</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> routine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d it was gone in 2 days. I could have had an outbreak just because of the infection down there but I didn't notice it until after I started taking my antibiotics.

I'm starting daily <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>acyclovir</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> to suppress my OB's but I have a bacterial infection <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d need to take an antibiotic - Augmentin - to clear it up.

First, can taking <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>acyclovir</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> 800mg tablets affect the results of an IGM test <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d result in a "false" positive? Second, can an IGG test detect herpes antibodies during an initial outbreak of genital sores and flu-like symptoms that occurs about two weeks after the suspected exposure?

Ten years ago as part of a routine STD testing I tested positive for antibodies to HSV 1 and 2. (herpes type I and II IgG and IgM. HSV-I IgG ab >6. HSV-II IgG ab 4.90. I never have symptoms or outbreaks and if I do, they are so mild I don't notice them. I recently began a relationship with a man. I am a woman. He gets cold sores. We have not had intercourse yet. My NP recommended 400 mg a day of acylovir to reduce shedding. I asked her if it was supposed to be twice a day and she said no.
It's not FDA approved as a dose but the literature backs it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d it's become generally accepted as a dose ( <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>acyclovir</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> has been a generic for a long time so it's doubtful anyone an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> going to pay for the studies to go for fda approval of than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> dose ). I will gladly share the journal article citation for you if your provider wants it ( they can look for it themselves!!! ).

Also should your abscess reoccur, make sure they consider MRSA as a cause. it's more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d more common in the genital area <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d takes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tibiotics to get rid of and also special cleaning/laundering so that you don't keep getting it back/spread it to others.
I never saw any HSV 1 on her lips BOTH below the waan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>t <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d on her mouth.

I couldn't believe it. So I asked for another blood test, it came back POSITIVE HSV 2! At than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> point, I don't know if I can trust her. I don't know if she cheated on me while I was gone or she had the virus the entire time but didn't tell me.
Follow up planned in 2 months w dr <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d 6 months for repeat u/s.

I'm very uncomfortable as well as concerned. I hate to bother my dr.s yet again but I don't understand why my symptoms have not improved. Please if anyone has had a similar case or know of one please share.
I was seen on Thursday by an ophthalmologan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>t and diagnosed with herpes Symplex Of eyelid OS. Dr.'s plan an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> early than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> killer dermatitan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d conjunctivitan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> Dueto finality of rash <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d presence of s Chalagi of rash and presence of submandibular bone.

As for the PCR test, it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a good way to spend lots of money but not a good way to diagnose HIV.
He told me to take <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>acyclovir</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d that didn't resolve the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>sue either... Now, he tried an oral fungal medication <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d that hasn't worked either. I am going nuts... I learned a big lesson from than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>.... But, what can than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> be???
My lymph nodes in the groin were now tender. The doctor said he thought it was a bacterial infection <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d gave me Cephalexin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>acyclovir</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>>, just in case. A few days ago noticed scratch on bottom side shaft but went away in about 72 hours. During most of than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> time I have been at the hospital staying bedside with a family member whose ill, sometimes 24+ straight hours so I've been exposed to more bacterias and such than usual.
I'm replenan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>hing these now by doing a colon cleanse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d using probiotics. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d never will I take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tibiotics again.
I decided to go to ER, because my daughter just had a baby and I was around the baby for three days( he's five days old). They confirmed shingles, gave me <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>acyclovir</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> 800 mg 5 times a day. I'm on day two now of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tibiotics. Although, the rash seems to not be spreading, I have muscle weakness and my arms feel super heavy and it freaking hurts...I take pain meds and they help but does not take the shocking pain away.
Infections are noticeably better and less painful from ointment/bandaging <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tibiotics. I don't see how any infection could survive that, anyway.
My doc took a quick look at my pimple and said he thought it was nothing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d way too fast to develop <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d transmit Herpes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d gave me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tibiotics <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d cream for us both to treat a skin infection. I'm still wondering if it's possible. I'm thinking it would be possible for me to catch it but unlikely I could transmit it to my wife and that she would also show symtoms that quick. What do you think?
The doctor said she thinks an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a viral infection <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d prescribe to me some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tibiotics, prednan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>one, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d an oral lidicaine for the pain. She made mention that my throat was very red and there was an area that looked like an ulcer. If it were just these conditions without the sore on my face I wouldn't think anything of it but things worries me. I have no had sexual interaction with anyone but my girlfriend. We have been in a monogamous relationship for 5 years.
2 was enough to get cultures <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d begin triple <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tibiotics. Even a fever blan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>ter can get out of control <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d end up as a Herpes meningitan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> which an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a nasty, nasty infection. So, your doc an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> on speed-dial, yes? Take care, so good to see you.
I went to the hospital <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d confirmed shingles. I'm taking <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>acyclovir</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> 800 5 times per day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d on day 2. I contacted my daughter so she could let the hospital know. But I noticed the rash has not gotten bigger but symptoms have. My arms are super weak, they were not yesterday. Burning on my back where the rash an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> not even present. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> there any relief? Should my husband get the shingle shot? and do I get a shot since I have it already?
Except they havent and wont test me for Herpes?! I had a NSU which they gave me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tibiotics for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d that when but than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> pain an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> still there. I have also heard that Herpes can cause NSU in men an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> that also true?
Yesterday we checked up with another doctor. He inspected both of us. I din't mention to him about my case to him as my wife was with me. Although I told him that I had received my blood test for IgG was positive for HSV 1 & 2 and IgM was negative for HSV 1 & 2. He said that IgG tells us about any previous infections or the immunity level of one against HSV. If we have lesion currently and if test IgM negative then its not herpes. He then inspection my penan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> and her vagina.
really no reason to be on <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>acyclovir</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> at than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> point. burning thighs only <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d no other genital symptoms usually an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a fungal infection. continue to follow up with your doctor as needed for your ongoing symptoms.
I developed two ulcer like sores on my labia <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d my GYNO seems to think it's Herpes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d I'm waiting on the results :( from all the descriptions though that doesn't seem right because I have no blan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>ters or anything and these are already starting to heal in just a few days. She put me on the anti-viral meds though just in case. But my question an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>, it's been two weeks since then, and I had unprotected sex on my period and yesterday I started feeling pregnancy signs.

She received IV acyclvir for 6 days as well as IV <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tibiotics for the minor infection in her thumb. The infection was ttped as HSV1 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d she has a lumbar puncture which returned as negative. Following dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>apperance of those lesions (not 100%), they began to recur 10 days after dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>charge from hospital.
She told me to take the suppressive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d then gave me a script for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>tibiotics pills <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>d cream. I gave up on the suppressive because they were way too expensive to continue. I still have never had a breakout, my boyfriend’s HSV test came back negative, and my ex an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> also negative. At my next yearly check up I asked my gyno to test me again and she told me nothing an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> going to change, once it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> positive it’s positive.
