Herpes outbreak or Bacterial infection??
I'm a 35 year old male with HSV1 in my anus. I've only had a few outbreaks in my life. About a month or so ago I got a pretty bad one that is still here. I went back on the valtrex a few weeks ago and the sores seemed to lessen but there are still issues. Every morning this week I woke up at 8am itching like crazy. It fell like ooze is coming out of my butt. The ooze is sometimes clear and sometimes yellow and thick. There are often spots in my underwear too. One day it smelled a little fishy but now it does not. Anyway I'm concerned that I may have something else other than just a herpes outbreak.. My anus still looks red and irritated but it doesn't hurt as much when i shower or go to the bathroom as it did a week ago.. Does it sound like the sores are just healing? or could it be something else? I don't have insurance and can't really afford a doctor visit right now. :( I was taking several epsome salt baths a day but have cut back on them thinking i was getting better (that is until this week).. Any advice? miserable..
