I am 23 and am currently having my first OB.
I have not been formally diagnosed, or gone to a doctor, but feel it is unnecessary at this point. I know I have HSV-2. For how long I've had it, I am unsure. But its pretty obvious its what I have. I've made a lot of bad decisions as far as sexual partners up until now. I'm not angry, and I know this is my punishment for it.
The only thing I am worried about is the fact that I have probably had this for a while, and that I am afraid I have already given it to my current sexual partner, a man I care very much for, that I love with all my heart and that does not deserve to go through this.
I feel I am lucky, this being my first OB and it supposed to be being the worst, I have gotten off pretty easy.
I have multiple sores only on the right aide of ny body from my anus leading on just the side of my vagina. It's mostly just itchy, with only some mild/moderate pain and little pain while urinating. I am on day 5, and at least the vaginal sores are already starting to scab over. I am not sure how much longer I have to go though, and am really hoping its in the process of going away.
I also get this really weird pain only one my pinky toe on my right foot. That started yesterday and I'm not sure if it has anything to do with it, but am assuming it does.
As far as a remedy, I have been on my period, so there's not a whole lot I can do. But I have been using Lanacane, which is an anti-itch/ anti-bacterial creme I have been applying a few times a day. And am currently using an icepack to soothe some of the pain, as well as aleve.
There is still itching and pain, don't get me wrong. But its been bareable.
I do have to work tomorrow and can't afford to take anymore days off. And I work 40 hours ,so I'm a little worried and am hoping it will be okay.
Thanks for listening, and I wish the best for everyone. It's not easy, but we will get through it!
Any other suggestions would be very appreciated as well!
