I have had hsv 1 and 2 for almost 20 yrs. but just recently started getting outbreaks in my nose and one of my eyes. I'm not sure if maybe I touched my mouth and then my eye or if it just got in there on its own?
Is it a rash or am I having an outbreak? Cause when I went to look it up it said something about herpes rash. So I don't know what to do or if its serious cause it doesn't hurt now. It doesn't bother me at all only when I touch it or my underwear rubs against the area.
My gyn said since the virus was in the nerves of the sacral area, I was not contagious unless I had an outbreak. Then she said later, even without an outbreak, I could still shed a small amount of virus vaginally. How can I give my negative partner maximum protection. Should I take valtrex? Is oral sex dangerous? How easy would it be for him to contract it from me?
I was married for 40 years. This is the first time I will have a new partner. I have probably had the virus close to 30 years.
I have had genital herpes for over 30 years. I have had 4 long term girlfriends and had unprotected sex with them. to my knowledge they remained clean. but then I hear that a large percentage of people don't even know that they have it. it goes undetected. so now I am thinking that maybe I passed it along and they don't have any symptoms or maybe they think it just a yeast infection. I am very confused right now.
I also have HPV which is under control. Both skin to skin infections. I would really love to talk to a professional who deals w these particular STDs. I have great medical professionals but their information goes so far. Lastly, the Acyclovir cream is so thick and hard to spread over active sores. Any suggestions? Thank you.
