Discharge and Herpes
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!

what testing did you  have done for herpes?

you need to be seen again and get proper testing of your discharge. brown discharge isn't typical for herpes ob's.

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!
