I was diagnosed with both HSV 1& 2 plus antibodies for yest infection back in Nov 2011. I was experiencing some problems and had the blood test which came back positive for both types. I never had an outbreak of genital herpes down there until a month after that. I was put on Val for 10 days which seem to work, but I experience outbreaks every mouth it seems.

I started Ayaclvior back at the beginning of May which I still had an outbreak at the end of May. My doctor was no help, so I switched to supposedly the best women's health in my area. I had another episode in June. Just last week I had two bumps form and my new doctor took a culture of the one that didn't look dried up. Due the holiday I am supposed to get the results back on Monday.

Ever since the end of May I have been experiencing tingling down there at times it isn't fun at all. There is no itching, just tingling.

I have tried the tea tree oil, bee prohilis, l-sein, vitamin D and Zinc, diaper cream, etc. I just want it go back dormat and leave me alone. I know you have to accept this, but how can you when it is so persistent.

I have started a new relationship and he is very understanding of this. He knows that we are not doing anything for his protection.

Sorry for my frustration, but how do I get doctor to understand this isn't normal!

Since this was posted I got the culture results back and they are negative for herpes, bacterial and yeast. The bumps (1 was on inside of the lips about middle up and the other one was on the other side in the hair region about 3/4 of way down) cleared up. Have not seen the sores that was plagued with for months on/off. These sores looked like a skin scrape that barely took skin.

Well I am going back to the doctors tomorrow at 930on morning to see about this sensation that keeps going on. Just today i found temporarily relief with antibacterial hand soap, yes i was tested for bacterial infections and negative.

I've had herpes for almost 20 years...Try Johnsons regular baby powder. Keep the sore dry at all times. I put it on every day despite if I have a breakout or not. I can't afford valtrex so this is my cheapest most successful option and recommendation.

Thanks for the idea. I do keep it dry as possible. I have done the powder (both corn and baby).

My doctor today prescribe the zovirax cream. Great idea!!! I told her that it has to be something that is under 50 cause I pay out of pocket until my high deducitble is met.

I have been having a similar problem where I have an undiagnosed case and have been tested swab and blood for herpes... so far it's all been negative but I know better. I get sores what feels like 1-2 times a month... I have my worst one right now and I'm worried... I have some pills leftover from my recent pregnancy that they gave me 'just in case' that seem to help take it away quicker. I have an appointment with my doctor soon. they keep telling me to come in when I have a breakout but really I'm tired of getting negative results I just want to start treating it. The breakouts come at the worst of times too! Then again no time is good I guess.. I just want this gone...

UPDATE!!!!

I spent the money on the zovirax cream only to be disappointed. It only soothed the area like the vaginsal cream does (tried that too).

I went off the meds for 5 days, no change in the sensation I am feeling. It is like tingling feeling in between the inner and outter lips (whatever that area is called).

My GYNO has referred me to a dermatologist because they believe it is some skin irritation. I stopped running, wear no undies or shorts are night, blow dry after showering, etc.
