HSV 2 SYMPTOMS

WITH THE INITIAL OUTBREAK OF HSV 2, ONE OF THE SYMPTOMS THAT MAY OCCUR IS A FEVER.
MY QUESTIONS:

DOES THE FEVER COME BEFORE OR AFTER THE BLISTERS APPEAR

2) DOES THE LYMPHNODE HAVE TO SWELL IN EVERY OUTBREAK

THANKS IN ADVANCE

Typically the fever would appear before the lesions but not always. Most folks who contract herpes will not even get a fever.

Lymph node swelling typically only occurs with a newly acquired infection for the vast majority of folks who have genital herpes.

Hey Grace, when i have a breakout is it possible to only have one bump that becomes a blister? Some of my obs have been just one and some have been two at times. But never more than four

Perhaps it would be most helpful if you explained why you are asking these sorts of questions. Are you unsure if you have herpes or not? Are you unsure what are ob's and what aren't?

Have you been dealing with these symptoms since March? Herpes symptoms do not last that long. You can't possibly diagnose yourself - see a medical provider to know what's going on. Proper testing is necessary to diagnose genital herpes - either a swab/culture of the lesions and/or an IgG type specific blood test.
