I Got Genital Herpes From A Kidney Transplant
I had a kidney transplant from a live donor who got stomach cancer about a year later, now 3 years since surgery. Will i also contract cancer since i got the kidney from the donor?
Not likely: While some malignancies may be related to viral infections, and potentially transmitted by tissue, gastric cancer from a renal transplant is unlikely. As a transplant recipient, however, your immunosuppressive medications and exposure to biologic agents do predispose you to other types of neoplasms. See your doctor regularly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In medicine: a transfer from one body or body part to another of an organ (liver, heart, lung, kidney, pancreas bowel) or tissue (hand, face, hair). The immune system fights foreign invaders (like infections) so it will reject transplants from other people (allotransplants) because they look like infections. So transplants usually require drugs to ...Read more
During a haircut,I got a cut from razor.Then,I got cough,body ache&later diagnosed with chickenpox.Can hiv spread through razor&can this mean hiv??
Doubtful : Based on what you describe HIV would be extremely rare and you are not describing HIV symptoms. With that said if the razor had a significant amount of fresh blood and had come from someone with active HIV or even hepatitis there is a small chance a disease could be spread particularly if your cut was deep and bled quite a bit I would have a doctor draw blood tests. I believer u r fine though ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Herpes Is Herpes: There are two viruses. We do not label or name them now with 'oral' or 'genital'. The more common type is called herpes type one and the less common type is herpes type two. If you have herpes you have herpes. Now the blood test should be accomplished to learn which type you have. ...Read more
I am a female and i received oral sex from a male. The male had a scab on his lip from a cigarette burn, unsure if was bleeding.Is this poss hiv risk?
Always unsure...: Any fresh breakdown of natural barriers - skin or mucosa by frictions through sex, may pose risk for body fluid exchange leading to virus transmission like that for HIV, hepatitis-B & C, etc. So, be tested for HIV or STDs in 1 month if high-risk factors present in you like known past infection in partners, multiple partners, homo..., anal sex, etc. Besides, be counseled timely for now and later. ...Read more
Had intimate Hollywood wax in a salon that double dips.can I get herpes/HPV/ other STI from this?virus from prev client survive in wax?
Uncertain, but...: I am afraid there have been no exact studies to address the connected concerns in your scenario. But contracting infective agents may take place as long as the external natural barrier like skin or mucosa is broken by sex-related acts. And the related symptoms may develop if internal humoral immunity is not strong enough to fend off the invading infective agents. Nonetheless, seek evaluation... ...Read more
I have the oral herpes, had sex with someone I think I passed the virus to, a little of his saliva touched my genital area, can I get genital herpes?
No risk: People are resistant to new infections with the same HSV type they already have. You will not catch a new HSV1 infection anywhere on your body, especially with the same virus strain already infecting your mouth. Also, HSV is not transmitted by such brief contact with saliva; the virus must be massaged into tissues. So no worries! Of course you could still catch HSV2 if sexually exposed to it. ...Read more
I got a handjob from a girl with herpes. My anus has started to itch and i'm scared. Could I have gotten herpes from a handjob?
What are my chances of getting herpes simplex 1 from oral from someone who hasn't ever had an outbreak, but does have it? He got tested
Small but not zero: He probably has a positive antibody test, which means he's been exposed to the virus, but does not necessarily mean he has active hsv. The risk of such people transmitting the virus is small, but not zero, and can be lowered further if he takes an antiviral (valtrex, famvir) regularly. Whether long-term antiviral treatment is advisable must be decided by his doctor. ...Read more
I have Hsv 2 genital herpes, I have a rash on my ankle could this be herpes? Never had episode not in genital area. FYI recent exposure to bed bugs
Unlikely: Hsv-1 generally does not have the affinity for the receptors in the genital are. Therefore, although it may occur, it usually does not happen. If it does occur, the infections with hsv-1 in the genitals are shorter lived, less pronounced, and tend to not recur frequently. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Woman has had genital herpes outbreak on inner thigh 5 years ago. No outbreak for 2 years and on antiviral meds since. Can I catch it if I don't touch the area of infection?
I currently have an outbreak of genital herpes simplex 1 (diagnosed recently ). Do I need to be lysol wiping the toilet seat for infection control?
Here are some ...: If the toilet you have used is just for you, it's absolutely no need to disinfect.... If using public toilets, it's optional because the toilet users after you have no chance to contact your out-breaking sites with their broken-very unlikely-skin. So, the likelihood to transmit herpes virus is almost next-to-none. Clinically, I don't believe there has been a study being done to address the answer. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
A guy i know had a kidney transplant when he was younger & we talked about dating but then he told me he got warts & herpes as a side affect frm meds?
Organ Transplants: Because immunosuppressive therapy inhibits the immune system, many patients develop infections while undergoing treatment for organ transplants. These conditions are usually treatable with medications and include fungal, viral, bacterial infections, and skin cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
He needs a physician: Acyclovir can cause renal damage. As your boyfriend already has kidney disease, the dose of Acyclovir needs to be based on his renal function. Most importantly; does he really need it? Under any circumstances, this kind of problem can't be addressed here any further. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Enlarged lymph nodes in groin and sore lower back every so often. Is this genital herpes symptoms?
Probably not herpes: Recrurrent genital herpes doesn't cause enlarged lymph nodes. This happens from herpes only once, during the intitial infection, and in that case there would be painful blisters or sores. And herpes doesn't cause lower back pain. You'll need to look elsewhere for the cause of these symptoms. Good luck! ...Read more
I have genital herpes and I’m on my period. Lymph nodes in my groin area are swollen and sore and I have a rash on my lower back. Is this from herpes?
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. ...Read more
Thank you for your time from Cen. Florida. My wife is a type 1 Diabetic on dialysis w/ genital herpes. Can she get a kidney and pancreas transplant?
I was diagnosed with mono. A few months after, I was diagnosed with genital herpes. My boyfriend’s test came back clean. Is it possible that the herpes virus came from the mono virus?
No, but...: Being "diagnosed" with a disease usually means there is a high likelihood of having that disease, but sometimes initial diagnoses are reversed when further testing shows that an alternative diagnosis is more correct. If each person gets the Herpes Type-Specific blood test and the EBV Antibodies Panel blood test done, then there can be more clarity about which virus a person has (HSV1, HSV2, EBV). ...Read more
I have had a kidney transplant 3 years ago and I suffer with osteoarthritis and I would like to take s -adenosylmethionine as I can't take Nsaids will?
Ask nephrologist: S-AME is not generally toxic to the kidneys, but you don't give any other medications or information about the nature of your kidney disease. There is a rare condition called Lesch-Nyan syndrome that can be worsened by s-AME. Your kidney physician and your pharmacist should be your primary source of information, and I recommend against depending solely on online sources. ...Read more
When a finger(s) with mid scab wound is exposed to genital herpes and the wound heals before GH can manifest does finger artist become 1of 90%?
Depends on source: It depends on the donor source and ages of the donor and recipient. About 90% of all kidney recipients are alive with a functioning graft at 1 year. Approximately 55% of living kidney recipients and 40% of deceased donor kidney recipients are alive with a functioning graft at 10 years. Some kidneys have lasted over 30 years. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Unreliable patients: For every kidney txp performed, either a live donor's life was put on the line (for the operation), or another pt on the waiting list will die because the organ was given to this pt. So, it is only fair to perform txps for pts who are expected to survive at least several yrs and will actively care for themselves. Too sick, or out of condition, or uncaring, or unreliable pts must be told no. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Kidney + pt matter: All kidneys + all recipients are not equal. The underlying condition of the patient, + the quality of the kidney (does it work right away or is dialysis needed before it starts working?) play key roles in determining the recovery time. In the best circumstance, with a live donor kidney (these almost always work immediately) + a strong patient, return to non-physical work may be possible in 4-6 wks. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Unlikely: Many logistical issues make it difficulty. Unless you have a health insurance in the U.S., the cost of transplant surgery will be prohibitively high and most tx programs will not accept you. For deceased donor kidney transplants, one has to wait just like U.S. nationals (ave. 5 yrs) and they need to be able to get to the transplant center in ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Kidneys anatomically require connection to an artery for blood supply, a vein for blood drainage and the bladder for urine outflow. In a transplant a healthy kidney is disconnected from its usual attachments and moved to a new location with those 3 requirements (artery, vein, bladder). This may be an auto-txp - somewhere else in your own body; or an allo-txp -from ...Read more
The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more
