Anything is possible. Before things go worse, get the symptom checked and analysed.

Hi! So I am always at war with my mind, battling random anxieties. I get checked for STDs regularly. I am a gay male and have only had a few sexual experiences in my life, at age 27. I ve never been in a long-term relationship and I have only had a string of one night stands, where I ve never seen any sores present. The thing that scares me the most is Herpes, especially having it without knowing and accidentally spreading it to people. The weird thing is, I have never seen any bumps, lesions, cuts or sores. Sometimes I get an itchy anus and this is what triggers my fear. Currently, I have had itching going on for 5 weeks. I am assuming it is because of sweat and hygiene, which I have since corrected and I just started to use Lotrim which seems to be working. My question is-- would itching for 5 weeks without any sores present be an instance of possible herpes? I am driving myself crazy, debating whether or not I should go through the trouble of getting a blood test when really there is nothing on my skin. I read that you can have no symptoms at all and still carry the virus, able to give it to others. Do you think I have any valid reason to believe I have herpes or am I just totally insane? Is it worth it to get tested when the symptoms are not present?

i was at a concert and i was dancing with this girl. We kissed very briefly a few times, no longer than a couple seconds each time. I put her on my shoulders at one point and she put her fingers in my mouth for some weird reason. At one point she stuck her hand in my pants and touched my penis very briefly (i have no idea why, i just wanted to dance). Im a very paranoid person, and just wanted to ask, can any of this lead to me contracting genital herpes? she had no visible blisters or lesions on her face. Thanks for your help, i know i m probably thinking irrationally but i just need an answer before i can move on. Im now starting to over analyze every part of my private parts 1,000 times a day and thinking every little mark or every time i get an itch or a very minimal pain is a symptom.

I am trying to figure out if this is HSV-1 or Allergies OR fungal infection? First, swollen tastebuds and MILD thrush. 1 month later, pimples at corner of mouth and dry lips. They never blistered and stayed for 2 weeks. Even after picking and scabbing. They never scabbed over yellow like they say herpes does and never blistered up. ??? Angular cheilitis ? Slight cracking on corner of mouth after picking pimples TINY flesh colored pimples at back of mouth, not beyond the tonsils but above and before. Then a week later I started experiencing blurry, itchy, water eyes, felt like an object in my eye... swollen in the corner by tear duct. White looking when I lift up my eyelid in corner. Ocular herpes????? I can only find information on when it attack the eyelids , cornea , etc. I don t see any lesions. What are the options of what it could be?

My 21 year old boyfriend was treated for chlamydia and gonorrhea about 2 days ago and still complains of stinging and itching after urination and I'm having an unusual amount of white discharge lately, no smell. What could be wrong? Could it be something other than chlamydia? Could it be warts or herpes?

Am querying current line of thinking by several consultants. Admitted to hospital May 2011; lumbar puncture showed elevated CSF protein of 1088 mg/L with 228 white cells, 95% lymphocytes. The working diagnosis was viral meningitis, and I was discharged after 2 days aciclovir. Negative for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. Developed infection in leg early October 2011, followed by painful groin, then ulcers either side of scrotum - non painful, and diagnosed as shingles. Mid October 2011, following tinitus, buzzing , hearing different frequencies, then vertigo, admitted for 2 weeks in ID ward...CSF showed 614 white cells with 90% lymphocytosis. CSF protein raised at 1335 mg/L. Tested for everything under the sun, incl. HIV, syphillis, Lyme disease, Cat scratch fever (leg infection thought to have been through an insect bite). All negative, incl. ANA. Chest x-ray, MRI scan of brain and whole spine also negative. Admitted again 26th December 2011, aciclovir for seven days, now back home feeling well, if a little tired. Current thought is Mollarets meningitis, but more recently, rheumatology dept. thinking Behcets syndrome, as I suffer from mouth ulcers. My contention is this; I have sufferd from mouth ulcers since a teenager taking exams at school. If I have a job interview, I will get mouth ulcers after @ 48 hours. Dentist thinks stress induced, as do I. I have no aching joints and no eye irritation, also, just found out that HLAB51 negative. I am a 42 year old British male and caucasian. I can t help feeling there s a square peg being pushed into a round hole here. What about migraine; the tinitus, buzzing and vertigo? Also, I took a non-steroidal (Ibuprofen) prior to the first two episodes. Bickerstaff s encephalitis sounds just as plausible as Behcets...or am I in denial? I would appreciate any advice, even if it s to simply face the music . Thank you for your time.

My husband has genital herpes and was recently diagnosed with colon cancer. He received 1 treatment of chemotherapy and has run a fever everyday for about 2 weeks. About five days after his treatment he noticed discomfort of the scrotum. It was red on both sides and had areas of what appeared to be pus filled lesions. Could this be a side effect of the chemo or is this an outbreak. He is taking valtrex and applying a cream. It seems to be improving slowly. Should he tell his oncologist about the herpes. Will it effect his treatments and does chemotherapy increase the severity of outbreaks.
