I posted about a week ago, but I have a question... In the fall I tested positive for hsv 1 and 2 (hsv 2 @ 2.0) but my outbreaks are odd. I know that herpes doesn't have to be like the images you seen on-line, but my question is since i've never experienced a blister or an ulcer, will the small bumps I get every few months continue as my own personal "outbreak"? I get small clusters of red bumps on on side, somewhat painful to the touch, but nothing unbearable. the last time was last week, and it hurt to pee, but only for a day. was that a open blister that maybe I just couldn't see? When I look at them, they don't look like anything other than bumps, sometimes with a small little dent.
Doctors appointment next week..... ughh! :(
