Welcome to our Forum. The combination of your symptoms, which are not typical of HSV infection, they came on long after HSV typically occurs (HSV lesions typically appear 4-10 days following exposure, not at 3 months) and your negative tests ( I realize there was one which was in the equivocal/positive range but most are negative) indicate that you do not have HSV. I cannot tell you what is going on without examining you. Instead, you should be evaluated by a knowledgeable clinician (perhaps an STD specialist or dermatologist) who can help to evaluate your problems. There are many dermatological processes which can cause severe burning and erosions such as you describe. These include reactions to topical medications (if you are applying things to the sore areas), fungal infections and other dermatological processes.
Hope this helps. Go see a knowledgeable clinician. EWH
I also would like to mention I have had blood on my toilet paper for about a month. It comes and goes and the first time i noticed Was 1 month after the exposure. I have red dots on my mouth cheeks that come and go without any pain. I tested negative for all other stds 4 months 20 days after exposure. My anal area burns one time and after a couple of weeks my genitals burn with small red rash. I would keep you poste abt my results in a couple of days.
All of this makes me more certain that you need to look for other, non-STD, non-HIV reasons for your symtoms. EWH
Thanks for your valuable advice.
I am still so depressed as I am from India and my I am about to get married to my new girl friend and my fiancee doesnt have anything like this. I got my second bout of symptoms right after I got regular flu. These went away today, I am observing my glans and I can see those red pimple like dots ( they are not raised much from the skin) becoming white and in a healing process. I also have a reduced pain and there is not much discomfort. At teh same time I have also got a white fluid filled pimple near my mouth and it too went away. My fiancee is getting ready and all excited about marriage and I am in such a depressed state of mind. I see the pictures of mild genital herpes on the website and I feel my symptoms match that and I get even more depressed. I have confirmed myself to be having HSV1 genitally and only my coming results should prove otherwise...
if I turn positive for genital HSV1 should I tell my fiancee before hand ?
What are the long term side effects of valtrex or other medications if used in suppressive therapy ?
Please do not even consider further use of valacyclovir. It is a waste of time.
As far as HSV-1 is concnerned, if you have it, you are in the same state as over 60% of adults in the U.S. and an even higher proportion from India. This is the virus that causes cold sores. It is not something to be concerned about.
To learn more about HSV-1 (as well as HSV-2), please take a look at the American Social Health Association (ASHA) web site (Dr. Handsfield and I are both on their Board of Directors). EWH
I am a dead man walking doctor. I have herpes my new test result came back positive. I just wished there was a cure. My outbreaks are more pronounced now. Do you foresee a cure in the coming 5 years?
