just diagnosed genital hsv 1
sslovie posted:
I was just diagnosed with hsv 1 by blood test. I had an outbreak a month ago, and wasn't even sure what it was. Had itching tingling then redness no sores, and then back ache. The back ache is the worst part.
Going to my doctor tomorrow, and have to talk to my wife. She has no symptoms we've been married 15 years, and faithful.
There' sno telling how long i've had this, and what is next.
Need to talk with someone who has gen hsv1
