Can you please tell me symptoms of herpes that don't include obvious herpes lesions?

Can you please tell me symptoms of herpes that don't include obvious herpes lesions?

Not really: If a patient sees no lesions, it is hard to guess whether or not any symptoms are from herpes. Her doctor can help by doing blood tests for herpes antibodies. If symptoms are happening often, perhaps a trial of preventive medication can be done, if the blood antibodies are positive for herpes. The partner's antibodies should be checked too, because one can only catch typical herpes from a person. ...Read more

Could herpes cause swollen nodes 3 days after sex? Or do nodes swell after lesions have been present? Read they appear week after the lesions appeared.

Could herpes cause swollen nodes 3 days after sex? Or do nodes swell after lesions have been present? Read they appear week after the lesions appeared.

Lesions before nodes: In initial herpes, inlfamed lymph nodes almost always follow the blisters/sores, not before. Otherwise, I don't understand the sequence. Swollen nodes appeared a week after lesions, but 3 days after sex? If so, I hope sex was with the partner from whom you acquired herpes, not a new partner! I also hope you're under medical care and on treatment with acyclovir or valacyclovir. Good luck! ...Read more

Ex partner had herpes. I'm experiencing swollen l-nodes in groin, itch & tingle (all mild) but many Drs won't test unless visible lesions. What to do?

Ex partner had herpes. I'm experiencing swollen l-nodes in groin, itch & tingle (all mild) but many Drs won't test unless visible lesions. What to do?

Symptoms not herpes: Herpes sores often itch, tingle, or cause inflamed lymph nodes, but by themselves, these don't suggest herpes. That said, Public Health Canada has a head-in-sand attitude about HSV blood tests, which therefore aren't done frequently. In my opinion, you should be tested because of exposure, but not because of your symptoms. However, my bet is you weren't infected and your test would be negative. ...Read more

Can herpes tingling last for a week? No visible sores. (I do not know status but have weird tingling and once had a swollen node after sex- no lesions)

Can herpes tingling last for a week? No visible sores. (I do not know status but have weird tingling and once had a swollen node after sex- no lesions)

Yes, it can.: You can definitely have herpes without sores. Most people who have herpes don't know they have it. It's great that you're in tune with your body. I would assume the tingling could be herpes, and wear a condom with any sexual encounter. If you ever develop a lesion, get seen right away so it can be tested for herpes. More at http://www. Cdc.
