What could be the cause of enlarged lymph nodes before and during the time of my period? Recurring with sore lower back. Genital herpes?
Probably not herpes: Herpes rarely if ever causes lymph node inflammation without an obvious outbreak of genital area blisters, sores, etc. Even then, lymph node involvement is rare in recurrent herpes, only during the first infection. Finally, genital herpes doesn't cause back pain, and rarely recurs as often once a month -- usually no more often than every 2-3 months. Discuss w/ your doctor if the problem continues.
No such thing: Herpes does not infect the kidneys. There is no such test and no need for treatment. If you're speaking of genital herpes, ask another question with more details about exactly what you mean.
Probably not: If your kidneys are normal at the present time taking these medications will not harm it. Some people have taken them for years.See 1 more doctor answer
Unrelated: The kidney failure is unrelated and needs assessment. If your kidney function is more than 60% not you likely are ok. If less, given your age, it needs evaluation. The genital herpes is unrelated, but treatment doses will need to be adjusted for degree of kidney function to avoid kidney injury from the meds.

Recurrent shingles with Post-Herpetic Neuralgia between outbreaks? There is a lot more to it but not enough space here.....?
Maybe HSV, not VZV: Shingles rarely recurs so frequently, but HSV2 (genital herpes) can do so, with recurrences anywhere from waist to upper thighs ("boxer shorts" area). 1) Retest next outbreak to confirm varicella zoster virus (VZV), and also PCR test for HSV. 2) Have an HSV IgG antibody test, expecting maybe positive for HSV2. 3) Continue valacylovir to prevent recurrences, whatever the cause. The drugs is entirely nontoxic, no reason not to take it as long as necessary. Good luck!See 9 more doctor answers
I have been getting blistery sores on my lower back, whenever I eat tomatoes, or citris foods. Is this herpes or cold sores?
Could be herpes: I have heard of citrus type foods triggering a herpes outbreak. You can also get skin irritation from citric acid if it touches your skin and then you are out in the sun. However, it could all just be a coincidence and your rash could be many other things. There is medication for it if it is herpes, so may worth it to get checked. You can always take a pic of it and show it to your doc later.See 1 more doctor answer
I had protected sex with woman with hsv2 5 week ago. I have lower back pain and itch on butt. Been feeling it 4 a few weeks. Is this a sign of herpes?
Low risk, no worries: Herpes doesn't cause low back pain or "itch on butt". The chance of HSV2 from one episode of unprotected vaginal sex with infected partner is around 1 in a thousand. With condom protection, it's still lower. Don't worry about this. Also look at it this way: If you've had sex with say 20 different women, you can assume 3-10 of them had HSV2. The one partner you knew about isn't any more risky.

How long does tingling happen before first outbreak of herpes. I get itching neck pain lower back pain now tingling for over 4 days now?
This isn't herpes: For initial herpes, there usually is no tingling before sores appear. Tingling is mainly a symptom of recurrent herpes; in that case, it lasts only a day or two before the outbreak itself shows up. Your symptoms don't sound at all like herpes, which doesn't cause tingling without sores and rarely if ever causes low back pain. See doctor if symptoms continue, but no worries about herpes. Good luck!
