Sore throat and genital herpes

Common Questions and Answers about Sore throat and genital herpes


Avatar f tn Thank you!!!
Avatar m tn Do you think it was actually an igg test? I did not have lesions in the groin but continue to have sore throat and enlarged tonsils for 4 months after encounter. I had an hiv test at 6 weeks through health department that consisted of viral load and antibody. It was negative. Also gonorrhea and syphillis test were negative. I did have 4 lesions on groin and two of them were viral warts and two were skin tags. The two that were warts were not identified as condyloma.
Avatar n tn hello doc,i have genital herpes,which i caught with a condom 3 years ago,anyways i recieved oral sex from a girl over 1 month ago with a condom , the day after i started feeling ill ,all the symtoms of a cold and or flu had cough sore throat, sneezing,and lost around 5 pounds the very next day,i also had a few slight night sweats.,now 4 weeks latter i have a sore throat again and very bad headaches for days i also have like this bruning feeling in my chest or back.still have a few night sweets..
Avatar m tn You can indeed get Herpes from kissing and genital contact if your partner was infected. Anytime you come in contact with the disease, you are at risk. Get tested and you will know. Best of luck!
Avatar m tn Just as an update. My sore throat lasted about 2 weeks before it stopped hurting. The area in my throat was so specific that I think it had to have been an ulcer. I have lost some significant weight (30lbs) because I have developed a very sensitive gag reflex from that area in my throat and swallowing has become kind of disgusting because I can feel the food so well over that area. I did develop some thrush but I was on Amoxicillin for 10 days which can easily bring about thrush.
Avatar n tn t developed any symptoms except that I had a sore throat and what seemed like a cold. ( again they say that hsv 2 in the genital area would not cause a sore throat) but my symtopms were more of a stuffy nose and sneezing so that could have just been the common cold. I have decided to go get tested just to know Forsure. And although it's a scary decision it is one that will put your mind at ease. So if you are worried that you may have gotten herpes. Just go and get tested.
Avatar n tn A sore throat could be a sign of gonorrhea, but most of the time no symptoms happen with oral gonorrhea. So while possible I would say not likely. Best advice is to have a throat swab done and you can test for gonorrhea as well as other bacterial infections.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed a two day dosage of valtrex and it went away, but my sore throat never did, this past week i have been freaking out about genital hsv1 because my lymph nodes in my groin were tender, i had pain/ numbness in my left leg from my butt to my knee, but so far no blister, no painful urination, no tingling in vaginal area..... what does this all mean?? Could i have been infected with hsv1 orally and genitally at the same time???
Avatar m tn 8 days after her diagnoses, I end up getting a very sore throat, muscle pains, sore neck, ears, sore groin and then the bumps show up on me genitally. I go to the doctor and get my devastating diagnoses of herpes, Dr. also says I have influenza. I also had a blood test to confirm that I didnt have the virus prior to this cheating. Those test came back negative. I then noticed what looks like a pimple on the side of the outside of my nose.
Avatar f tn I have a ?. I am 17 female with genital herpes. Recently i have had a sore throat for the last week, and it is not strep. I can see there are bumps in the back and it has been painful, is there a chance that this could be oral herpes??
Avatar f tn 4 days later I had to visit urgent care had a mild fever flu like illness body aches sore throat. The doctor said sore throat was due to all the lymph node enlargement. About 6 days after that I was out in the sun at bbq when I got home I realized I had a lump on my bikini line painful to touch eventually it popped yellow pus and blood and is mostly healed. Burning urination no other bumps I see and mild pelvic cramping. Does the timeline fit?
9669583 tn?1437708663 I would agree that the sore throat is probably not related to the genital herpes infection.
Avatar f tn have you ever been tested for herpes before to know your status? can you recall ever having had a cold sore before?
Avatar f tn My tonsilis are still red on both sides and and they look vein and bumpy. I had a blood test done for herpes and it came back postive for hsv 1. I had been taking valtrex 500mg once a day for 10 days and my throat is still red and bumpy looking. Could this be herpetic pharyngotonsillitis or symptoms of herpes?
Avatar f tn Assuming the sexual exposure when the virus was transmitted included kissing, your partner may well have acquired genital and oral HSV-1 simultaneously, explaining the ulcer in her throat. However, even in this situation, eye infection is rare -- and extremely unlikely once she is taking anti-HSV treatment. If she develops an irritated or sore eye, of course it should be checked out right away.
Avatar m tn Around the same time I developed swollen glands in my neck and a mild sore throat. Sore throat went away in about 3 days and the blisters (there were about 10) disappeared a week and a half later. Now I'm 4 weeks from initial encounter and I still have large sensitive swollen glands in my neck and less swollen around my groin. I'm pretty sure my body temperature has been slightly higher than usual for the last 2 weeks also. Is this normal for having contracted herpes?
Avatar m tn t have pain or any lesions on penis but developed low grade fever and sore throat. Could it be herpes infection?
Avatar m tn What are the odds that me having a sore throat and feeling a little rundown a symptom of herpes? Thanks everyone.
Avatar n tn I wonder why you are so obsessed with genital HSV-1. While nobody wants genital herpes, the large majority of genital HSV-1 infections cause few recurrent outbreaks (about half of all infected people never have any recurrent outbreaks at all); and genital HSV-1 is uncommonly spread sexually to partners. It's very different in these characteristics than genital HSV-2.
Avatar n tn it's very unlikely you got herpes that way, especially if she had no signs of outbreak. Oral HSV2 is uncommon. Gonorrhea is a real possibility though.
Avatar f tn About a week ago I noticed I had a sore throat again, so I looked and noticed I have the same tiny bumps all over the back of my throat, some of them look like blisters but it is hard to tell. It is only on the left side of the back of my throat, and I also had a bit of lymphnode swelling on that side. I have never had a cold sore.
Avatar m tn So the exposures I told you about, with oral sex when the condom slipped off for less than a minute, what would my risks be for both HIV and Herpes, meaning it sounds like for HIV it would be almost non-existent (despite my flu-like symptoms and sore throat), and herpes would be extremely low, since it was protected and even though it fell off for a tiny bit, the odds that he/she would be shedding at that time is very low.....So overall, would my chances that I have anything be close to none?
Avatar n tn Also, my neck hurts and is sore...i can't really classify it as a sore throat or just sore neck/throat muscles.
Avatar f tn If he had whitlow, and fingered you, you'd only have genital herpes. Your throat wouldn't be sore from that. Herpes only affects the location in which you were infected - if you got oral herpes, you wouldn't genital symptoms. If you get genital herpes, you wouldn't have oral symptoms. You might get a headache and some aches and pains, as your body is trying to fight something, but you wouldn't have a sore throat. You wouldn't have to check to see if he had whitlow.
Avatar n tn 2 test. Could my sore throat be a symptom of Herpes? Or another STD? Must I check myself for all STDs and STIs including HIV? I have since my outbreak parted ways with my partner for multiple reasons, but I'm surprised that his tests came out the way they did. Does this mean he could have been cheating on me too for his tests to first show equivocal and now positive? Please advise.
