I have gentile herpes and 8 days left on my meds but most of the time I'll lose my hunger than I'll feel like in gonna puke. Is this from the herpes?

Depends: Herpes lesions typically appear as painful "dew drops on a rose petal", or in medical terms, as vesicles on an erythematous base. They can occur after unprotected oral, anal or vaginal sex, and remain dormant in the dorsal ganglion, which is why the lesions can reappear during times of stress. Go to your pcm and request testing for stds to obtain appropriate treatment. ...Read more
Blisters/ulcers: A herpetic rash usually begins with a 'premonition' or a burning sensation. One or more small blisters and redness follow (this is the rash).
