herpes help

My daughter is newly diagnosed and freaking out about the boyfriend. He is on daily dose of prednisone for Crohns and my question is.........Can this suppress his symptoms? He states that he had some "spots" but they were just a bacterial issue. Just curious if maybe the prednisone could be masking an outbreak.

I cannot answer your question about the bf but he should get a type specific IgG blood test for HSV 1 & 2 so he knows his own status. Ask him to get a copy of the numeric test results and post them on here so someone can confirm his status. The bf should see his own Doc to ask how this will affect him. I

If your daughter has only been sexually active with just this bf then shemost likely got the HSV from him3. Do you know if she has HSV 1 or 2? If she does not know which it is she should call the Doc to confirm which one it is. How was she diagnosed as having HSV? If it was a swab/cure then make sure that the Doc types the culture so she knows which one it is. What has the Doc R/x for treating her herpes

If she has any questions ask them on here so we can help her to understand herpes. See my signature line for more info on herpes and treatment.

God Bless all of you
