You're right, not much at all to indicate herpes as an issue.
Otherwise I don't really know how to help. Describing a burning isn't that clear. Is it on the skin's surface or deeper in the tissue or muscles? Is it like sunburn all over or prickly hot pins? Are you stressed over anything above average levels at present?
I would say it feels more like prickly hot pins versus a sunburn particularly when the thighs touch. its just centralized in one spot the same on both sides. I have been unemployed for a 3 months so a bit stressed about that.
Also let me ask as a side note, if it was herpes would the soars appear simultaneously as the burning?
I have seen people with herpes infections report a sunburn type burning feeling at the back of the thighs in particular, it doesn't seem common and is usually accompanied by herpes sores.
Stress, mild depression, perhaps some extra drinking and putting on a little weight may all contribute to some extra sensitivity over things going on in that area.
Thanks for your comments. Obviously the test will put it to rest but if based on your comments i am almost absolved from any HSV issue Im pretty confident I should be fine.
I agree go for the requisite testing. The symptoms could be independent of any herpes or other STD that could be present asymptomatically.
2 months to develop symptoms that are not strongly aligned with herpes, I'd agree such little chance.
Burning sensations in the genital area could certainly be an indication of herpes, since not everyone has a raging primary infection. In fact, most people who contract the virus have mild or no symptoms, which is why 90% of HSV+ folks don't realize they are carrying the virus.
However, your symptoms could also be caused by other things. I do think it's a good idea to get an IgG type-specific blood test right away. Be aware, however, that 2 months may not have been enough time to develop enough antibodies to return an accurate result. In that case, the recommendation would be to get tested again 4 months following exposure.
Good luck to you!
