I am having a bad herpes outbreak, and I've tried almost everything. Do you have any advice on what to do? Also, its the worst I've ever gotten.

If it is herpes and new sores are still appearing, and if not taking an anti-HSV drug (acyclovir, valacyclovir, etc), that should be your next step. ...Read more

Clear skin down there before I shaved and the next day I have a couple red bumps. Not sure if I'm having a recurrent herpes outbreak?
Could be...: Because this happened the day after shaving, the most likely diagnosis is razor burn - especially if there are only a few bumps. But if you have a history of herpes, it could be a recurrent outbreak and the timing with the shaving was just a coincidence. Razor burn should not get worse in the next couple of days but a herpes outbreak might. ...Read more

What are chances of getting genital herpes from female if condom was used and partner had no outbreak?
If I just got hsv1 genital from my boyfriends hsv1 oral, how likely am I to get another outbreak? I am 22 yr old female.
My physician will not order the herpeselect type specific gg1/gg2 test for my recurrent outbreak. Is it only useful for primary infection?
I was diagnosed w genital hsv1. I'm a female and my doctor told me the likelihood of me transmitting it, if not experiencing outbreak is less than 3%.
This is correct!:
You should learn to recognize the PRE-BREAKOUT symptoms. Variable but usually an abnormal sensation. Burning. Itching...tingling in the area (s) usually involved.
This above everything else you can do is most important because you can begin anti-viral medications and avoid the breakout completely!!
Hope this helps

At this time, I wouldn't guess yes or no for being infected. ...Read more

Sexually active, I use a condom every time. Chances of me contracting hiv? Also, had sex with a genital herpes female. Says only 1 outbreak Am I safe
Safe enough, but...: Have sex with only one person. Also, one can get HIV through sex only if the other person has it, so just check with the other person. If worried about herpes, which can infect an uninfected person on the areas not covered by a condom, the infected partner can talk with a doctor about preventive drugs. But, if both partners are already infected with both Herpes types, it's late for prevention. ...Read more
