My girlfriend thinks she is having a herpes outbreak. She

My girlfriend thinks she is having a herpes outbreak. She is very uncomfortable and unfortunately waited until too late in the day to get medical attention today. I may be having a small outbreak as well; I got some acyclovir from my Dr. that is helping me but I am reluctant to share it with her because I believe it is illegal and I don't know what her dosage should be. Is there anything you can recommend to ease her discomfort (itching, pain during urination) until she can see a Dr.?

Hi, my girlfriend has herpes, I m worried I might have contracted it. I tested negative from a blood test before we started dating. I had some symptoms a few weeks ago and last week. If it was a primary outbreak, I feel like it would be considered extremely mild. It could be a rash from playing hockey. I had the first symptoms swabbed five days after I noticed bc it was the first clinic I could get to. The doctor said the test came back negative but there may not have been enough fluid present. Last week I woke up and had a rash in the same place, but it disappeared before the end of the day. I ve had flu like symptoms for the past week. I have pictures of both possible outbreaks. Can you look at the pictures and tell me whether you think they are herpes sores? Do you think based on my description that they are herpes sores? Is the only way I can know by waiting three months for a blood test? I m very anxious about this, possibly overly sensitive. My girlfriend doesn t want to take daily suppressive therapy. We ve been dating for 7 months. How can I explain to her the importance of protecting my health without it seeming like I don t care about her?

She is showing no symtomsat all of anything other than last week had an outbreak of the Herpes. It has been 6 weeks since she was sexually active with him and 3 weeks since Myself and her have had Sex. Or do you think the infection could be from the Herpes Virus? Any input would be great..

My now ex-girlfriend has accused me of passing on herpes to her. I my self have never had an outbreak in my life and do not know how I gave the disease. Is it possible to me to have it even though I ve never had an outbreak? Also is it possible for me to just have the disease like through genetics? And finally how can I prevent this from happening again?
