Genital Herpes Prodromes

An_245414 posted:
I need some advice! I have had herpes for about 10yrs and the longer i have had it the worse the prodromes have gotten even though i don't usually get an actual OB. Recently I have had one that started on the outside of my leg near my butt and then slowly moved up till it got to my waist and has now moved to the middle of my back this is all within a couple of days. I have never had one migrate or be so high up on my back. Its a little scary and i was wondering if anyone can give me some insight into this pls.

Herpes can be any where in the genital area as it is a virus and travels in the nerve endings that service the genital area. SO one can have break outs anywhere in the genital area. I do know that some people get nerve pain in the thigh area and I can see that one could get pain up to the waist but above that I am not sure.

If you do not get ob's are you taking suppressive therapy? If so what are you taking? If this does not get any better in the next day and it is really bothersome then go to a walk in clinic if you cannot see your regular provider. Keep us informed as to how things go.

I don't take any suppressive therapy. The prodrome that went up to my mid back went away after a couple of days but now I am having another one on my outer thigh again but not as bad as the last one. These have always been pretty far and few in between until this last week and a half and never as bad as the last one I had, but I cant complain considering I don't get OB's that often. I used to but not in awhile.

That is great that youdo not get a lot of obs. Do you have HsV 1 or HSV 2 genitally? If HSv 1 then that explains why you do not get a lot of obs. Hsv1 genitally does not have a lot of Obs. If this continues to bother you be seen as it may not be a herpes issue.

I am not really sure. I would err on the side of caution and avoid sex till the prodrome or what ever it is has subsided.
