    I've had mild genital herpes for years. Then it subsided for awhile. Then came back very mildly. Now its like it hs moved: I don't get external blisters much anymore, but about once a month I have internal pain around my lower intenstines at front sides and in lower back. This happens about once every one or two months (like a herpes cycle). I take herpes generic medicine (acylovere) only when I sense symptoms coming on, which seems to shorten the herpes week long cycle a bit. Symptoms of herpes presence usually include a heaviness feeling and depression and irritability, followed by small blisters in groin area. Now no external blisters, but instead pain in the lower colon. Can genital herpes migrate to the colon? What are the remedies/cures?

    I know that a person can have ob's in the anal/rectum area but have never heard of it going into the colon area. So I would recommend that you talk to your Doc about this.
