Questions and answers on "Hsv-2"

I have got bumps on my dick, I asked the doctor and he said it was herpes. So we made sure If it was whether herpes or not. I had to get tested. Anyways, my test results were.
HSV type1 IGG> 5.00
HSV IGG type2 <0.90

Doctor said that I have type one. Most likely type one causes from the birth or something like this, so he gave me valacyclovir as a medicate. After using this medicine, to the grain on the bumps completely disappeared. But after a while I got bumps on my face.
What should I do? I am about to get married? Is it causing the infection to others? Do you think that it will disappear from my skin or this herpes will go away from my body anytime soon? cause im still using the medicine. I hope you respond as soon as
possible!

Hi,

Welcome to HCM,

Herpes virus establishes lifelong infection, which means complete eradication from body is not possible at present.

It can be transmitted through skin to skin contact with a lesion.

Active disease lasts generally up to 21 days, followed by a remmission period.

This guy lied to me and told me that he was ddfree. We did not have intercourse, but both oral sex. I'm taking penicillin vk 500 from my dentist for a root canal I got last week. I've been on the meds for about 7 days now. The guy just told me that he has genital herpes. He went down on me, and I did the same thing. He said that is does not have any current breakouts. I'm really freaking out about all of this. And I wanted to ask a professional asap. I still have more penicillin left and I plan on finishing them up and then making an appointment to get test. I need your thoughts and advice DOC.

I have tested positive for HSV-2. I am trying to gain weight because of a high metabolism and wanted to know if drinking Ensure Plus will have an effect on any outbreaks I may get because of the protein in it? I am trying to keep my lysine high and arginine low.

doctor1 MD

Hi XXXXXXX

Drinking Ensure Plus is your own choice but simply would not affect the disease course which is as a rule self limiting in the immunocompetent population.
Same is true about your choice to manipulate arginine and lysine ratio.
HSV-2 is a herpes group virus and it causes small blister...

I have a few questions.

1) my partner has cold sores on his mouth. He has had them since he was a child. To my knowledge, we have never had oral sex while he had a cold sore. I have also had cold sores since I was a child, so I too have the HSV1 virus. I have been tested recently and was negative for HSV 2. If I have oral sex with my partner, can I get HSV1 on my genitals? Can the virus spread to my genitals even if he does not have an active cold sore? If I have HSV1 on my genitals from him, what would be the treatment?


2) I have a tiny brown spot on my vaginal lips, should I be concerned? It looks like a very tiny mole.

Herpes Simplex Virus 1 (HSV 1) cannot spread to genitals after oral sex.

It can occasionally spread even when not active though. There are instances when virus have been transmitted during latency.

Hi, I had a question about Herpes and the testing of it. I believe I may be infected with either HSV1 of HSV2, I went to get tested a couple day after symptons began. The test came back negative, however I am very concerned that my system wasn't able to produce the necessary antibodies that would appear on this test. So my symtpons are apparently dying down slowly now, but how long before I can test again so I can absolutely sure of the result?

doctor1 MD

Hi,

2.) What exactly are your symptoms?

IS IT POSSIBLE THAT i WAS EXPOSED TO HSV-1 BUT DONT HAVE IT. I KNOW THE BODY BUILDS ANTIBODIES WHEN EXPOSED TO THIS. I HAD NO FLU LIKE SYMPTOMS ALSO.

doctor1 MD

Hello,
Thanks for posting this interesting question.

Positivity for IgG HSV-1 does not mean anything if there is no clinical correlation.

HSV-1 is a ubiquitous virus and most of the adults are exposed to it and thus the body forms IgG type of antibodies against it. SO the test coming out to be...

Hi the area around my mouth has been feeling numb for a few days now. It has gotten a little better but now it is still kind of numb on my top lip. What could be causing this? I am HSV-2 positive, but I have never had an outbreak on my mouth.

Usually oral herpes infection is caused by HSV-1, but HSV-2 can also cause this.
Recurrence is less frequent with HSV- 2. It generally presents as cold sores or fever blisters on the outer side of lips, gums etc.
Other causes that can cause perioral numbness are...

doctor1 MD

Hello,
Thanks for writing in.

Cold sores are caused by HSV 1 whereas genital herpes is caused by HSV 2. These are two different strains of herpes virus.

In my opinion you are safe so far acquiring genital herpes is concerned.
Moreover a healing cold sore is hardly infectious.
You should not be...

Hi I got my HSV2 Result today It states Infection - HSV1+2-IgGAb to Herpes Simplex Virus serum by CLIA. REACTIVE(35.7) Nonreactive: below 0.9 ratio, Indeterminate 0.9 - 1.09 Ratio and Reactive 1. 1 & Above What does this mean? Is it possible to determine when i got the infection? How many months back? I had unprotected sex with only one girl. And the rest i had proper protective sex....... I had sex with my girl when i had first sore, but that time i did not know it was Herpes. She was having periods then. Would she get an infection because of me? She got a UTI three days after i had sex with her, but has no symptoms of Herpes. Can she get infected? Or can she be lucky not to get infected? I think i had my first sore on 5 July, When do u think i might have got an infection. I had unprotected sex with her on 15 July, but my sore was healed then. Can she be infected? I worry about her. Is it possible that she might not have got infected? Please help, I am very depressed...

6 1 height , 176 pounds in weight, medical history - allergic reaction to pollen and minor sinus conditions. Strong diabetic background on mother s side of family. i m 32 years of age. My girlfriend who was married for 17 years ( she s 39 yrs of age) contracted HSV-2 from her ex-husband about 13 yrs ago. So far i haven t got it but i m going to get tested just to make sure again. MY question is can genital herpes cause green stool ? i ve read up and gotten as much information on this as much as possible i m just wondering cause as of lately my stool has been green constantly over a week now. i ve been eating my normal food intake. No change in dietary food or supplement. And i ve been experiencing in the last week or so some swollen areas around my lower waist and some discomfort in the area of my testees. Not pain but slight discomfort as if my testicals are heavier? I am going to the doctor but since you are doctors what are your answers to these questions? Thankyou.

doctor1 MD

I ve been reading up on HSV1 and HSV2. I find it interesting that the virus stays in a nerve near your ear for 1 and spinal chord area for 2. In HSV1 it was saying that the virus can go to the lips , nose , or eye area as well as sinuses etc... My question is when I was a teenager I had a sore above my lip on my right side. I ve never seen it again. I was under the impression that if it were to come back it would be the same locatoin. So, if it comes back it could come to my nose instead? Same question for HSV2, if I had a small slit in one location and it came back could it be another location? thanks
