I have been diagnosed with HSV-2 I believe it is termed, and I also have HPV genital warts. Recently I have been noticing a brown discharge. I was just diagnosed with the herpes and was taking Valtrex which cleared up the a discharge and the lesions. The brown discharge is now back though and I am having some pains and sensitivity/redness in the vaginal area again, but no lesions yet. Could this all be a sign of the herpes returning? I went and got my Valtrex prescription refill and began taking it this evening, but I am just wondering if the discharge could be linked with the herpes and a possible sign for me to look for when I am going to have an outbreak? Thank you!
I had the culture taken of my sores and I also had the blood work done. Yeah I go back for an annual on the 4th of August so I will check into the discharge then. I know I am not pregnant though because I was also tested for that!
I also had ALL other testing done and everything else came back negative. I did medication for a yeast infection that the doctor thought I could be starting to get from the meds, but maybe it's some other kind of bacterial infection. I was on doxycycline though so I would think that would take care of it!
