I know it's hard with it being a holiday but this very well could be oral and genital herpes and a lesion culture done early on will help you figure that out as well as the sooner you start antivirals, the better.
This isn't likely to be a std since it's been there almost all the time. If it was herpes it would come and go with definite breaks in between symptoms. most other std's wouldn't present with just irritation in one area as you've described. If your symptoms are still there a few weeks from now - return to the doctor to see if additional testing is necessary.
read the handbook and you'll understand why knowing type matters :)
Most likely 12 years ago it was just a oh it's herpes and since it's below the waist it must be hsv2 and see ya later. At this point both you and your hubby need to get type specific herpes igg blood tests to see who has what and then go from there. Most likely at this point you both have whichever type it is you have so it won't answer the who had it first question but at least then you'll know who has what question. Has your hubby ever seen an ENT specialist for his throat issue?
I was having some irritation and blisters forming on my genital area and decided to go into the doctor yesterday, about 5 seconds into the appointment I found out that I now have genital herpes for the rest of my life. I just have a few questions because this is so new to me and I never really thought this would happen. My partner who I received this from has no health insurance and was unaware that he also had this.
by terri warren from westover hights, its free and has a section on home remedies if this is herpes. But if you have pink bumps all over your vagina, its not consistant with herpes as is only on one side, but more of a yeast infection. Did you just have your period?
The valtrex doses for the first ob are high and often trigger nausea and a general feeling of unwellness ( as does the herpes infection - both can contribute to it ). You'll be feeling better soon I'm sure :) The dermoplast helps with the itching too. If the lesions appear to be gone and you are still having a lot of itching - don't hesitate to return to your doctor to get tested for yeast and bacterial vaginal infections .
I'm sorry if I'm a little annoying, herpes is just really new to me and I'm still trying to accept the fact that I actually have it. I have two different gyno's telling me two different things and it's so confusing. My main concern is the possibility of spreading it to others (through sexual contact of course). I haven't been involved in anything of the sort since I was first diagnosed.
2 days ago I was in so much pain I finally called a Dr. and made an appointment. When she saw me she told me the cuts look like Herpes and did a culture swab. I was immediately placed on Valtrex, Metronidazole gel (I was also diagnosed with a severe Bacterial infection) and Lidocaine to numb the sores. I spoke to a Nurse today who confirmed I tested positive for the Virus. I'm not sure of the type but I will find out on Monday.
The gyno cannot consult me on my anal problems, acting as if it unrelated and says the herpes outbreak is unrelated to the bloody urine. Still no odor or pain/ burning when peeing. I took Ibuprofen for the abdominal pain for 10 days. It has been a month now and almost all the symptoms are gone including the itchy perianal bumps, vaginal discharge, mucus like stool, bloody bowel movements & urine, dizziness and pain.
My primary care doctor has taken a swab test for herpes in this area and near the rectum and both came out negative. Currently, I have a visible blister at the entrance of the rectum. Since this pain I begged my gynecologist to do a blood test for herpes. This blood test came out positive that I had been exposed but none of the doctors believe my problems are caused by herpes because there are no obvious blisters or lesions they have seen.
I went to my physician 48 hours later who performed a general examination and also a Strep test. I had no fever at any time and all of my vitals were nominal and the Strep test was negative. The physician concluded that the infection was most likely virus related in nature and prescribed no antibiotics, only a viscous 2% lidocaine solution to help with the pain related to my sore throat.
I knew it was not a yeast infection and was referred to a OBGYN who specialized in Herpes and STDs. I was tested from the lesions and my doctor said I have HVS 1, that this happened most likely from the oral sex, I don't have the report anymore since it was so long ago but I could probably ask her for a copy. As far as the outbreak 5 months ago, it was similar except that the bumps appear on the outside where my pubic hair is.
The doctor said he thought it could be herpes and did a culture. Got the results yesterday and came back positive for herpes. I have been in a monogomus relationship for the past 12 years and trust my partner completely. We have been racking our brains on how this could have happended. I had a full physical and blood test in October for everything including HIV, Herpes 1/2 etc and all came back negative.
My first inital OB lasted for about a week (pretty short) and I was prescribed with Acyclovir 400MG and Lidocaine 2.5% and Prilocaine 2.5% cream from my local Plant Parenthood. After my outbreak..I felt very normal. No tingling sensation, no itching, zero symptoms. That was during March. Since early April, I've been feeling a lot of tingling and itching on my genitals and buttox. I did catch a cold earlier, but now I am over it. I am wondering when the tingling/itching sensation will go away?

I went to the doctor today and it's not herpes. It's folliculitis! They gave my lidocaine for the pain and Bactrim for an anti biotic. I'm so relieved! Thanks your reply auntiejessi!
Dermoplast is also a topical anesthetic that is much cheaper and easily found on store shelves which is why I recommend it.
Turns out that over the next few days I got MORE of these so called blisters, they were white and open, did not drain and were VERY sore. I went to my OB GYN doc and she said 99% it was herpes and did another biopsy. It was and I got started on Valtrex and topical lidocaine jelly for the pain and they dried up and went away.
procaine (Novocain), lidocaine, benzocaine, and others) in fact are fairly likely to cause allergic reactions. So although I haven't heard of such reactions (but neither do I follow that particular medical literature, so I may have missed it), it doesn't surprise me. Don't do anything, just sit tight. If still inflamed after a few more days, you might try an over-the-counter steroid cream such as hydrocortisone.
ok so about 2 months ago i got clamydia. about the same day i got a high fever that last about a week. then i formed a white film over my tongue (i had it pierced for about a month during this) i started to lose my taste and got horrible blisters on my tongue and upper and lower palate of the mouth. i went to the ER and they told me it was a viral illness and that i should use there "magic mouthwash" which containted lidocaine, maloox, and benadryl.
Is this the case as I am concerned that somehow these recurrent outbreaks will reach the baby and cause congenital neonatal herpes. I am aware of the requirements closer to the birth and not using invasive procedures for monitoring or delivery assistance. Also, is it okay to dab a bit of isopropyl alcohol on the lesion (then use a cool hairdryer) as before I was pregnant this seems to help dry them out, but I am not sure during pregnancy.
I went to the doctor and she saw some irritation in my vagina. She said it could be herpes! You can imagine the shock and horrific feeling that had come over me. She prescribed me some lidocaine for the pain, and sent me on my way with some antibiodic cream for the irritation. Side note: Within the days before going to the doctor, the crazy itching and uncomfortable feeling spread to my butt.
ocular herpes is easily and effectively treated if diagnosed and treated promptly. How are her genital symptoms doing?

i kind of feel at ease after reading others like me and thinking that it was herpes and you all found out that it was not. i do not sleep around, nor have i had many sex partners, so i am wondering how the hell did i get herpes. my boyfriend and i are always together, so i hope this man has not cheated on me and brought something back to me. he has no symptoms of herpes, nor does he have these fissures.
Sometimes it is a little worse and sometimes it is a little better, but for the most part is is a constant 3 - 4 I have also tried accupuncture, Infra-red treatments, pain management w/ nerve block injections in my eyebrow and forehead areas.
Some of the illnesses that are suspected to be related to the viruses contained in the vaccine are AIDS, Aseptic Mennigitis, Gulf War Syndrome, because the soliders were given live Polio vaccine, Chronic Fatique Syndrome, Human Adenoviruses, Coxsackie, Echo, Herpes (HHV 6,7,8), Epstein Barr, Cytomegalovirus, mesotheliomas, and many other new rare diseases in the United States. The only genetic link I can find is between the Babyboomers who got these shots, and their children.
I dont know why we hurt, and it seems, neither does anyone else. I bought burn gel tonight, its has 2.5% lidocaine in it and it numbs the area of a burn, I may use it and see what happens, it was a suggestion to help the pain of vulvondia on a site, its OTC and I got it at Walmart for $5.
