Please help

Hi everyone
I'm 22 and yesterday got diagnosed with GH I don't know what to do, the doctor didn't explain anything to me he said he only had a few mi ruts and gave me tablets and gel and told me it was a lifelong condition, I couldn't stop crying, I have two children and a partner of four years. I'm too scared to tell him invade he thinks in cheated on him and too scared to ask him invade he's cheated on me :( and if he has we would break up and he would tell everyone I have it and I live in such a small town! I suffer with depression anyway and this condition is making me want to kill myself. The pain is unbearable I have had it for four days now and on my second day of taking tablets, I need some help or advice please! I can't take this much longer I'm terrified to even kiss my babies and terrified of people knowing, I feel they all know ..

I've had GH for about 5 years now and when I first found out I was terrified as well and I am depressed as well. But as the years go by you have less out breaks and eventually you barely have any. The mess sould help and if you take it daily it stays away longer. The first out break is always the worst and you will never have another one like it. You can go to a drug store and buy Aveeno oatmeal bath, take a warm bath with it well help soothe the burning itchy feeling. As you love with this dreadful disease you will become better aware of yourself and body and will just know when it's happening. As long as you don't have it orally and have no cold sores your children will not get GH. stay positive and don't stress it. It's not as bad as it seems. I always thought to myself it could have been an even worse disease. Good luck to you and may God bless you with the strength the deal with this horrible situation.

'!!!!!!WHAT' I HAVE 'WHAT!!!!!'

Hi, I feel your PAIN and FRUSTRATION. I am going thru the same nightmare. The problem with me is I am celebrate,have been for 7 years and was just diagnosed. I too was desperate unable to sleep,urinate without the severe burning and live life normally. My doctor explained to me that it is a dormant busy but can be affected by severe stress, trauma or just basic depression I have been severely sick with fibromyalgia causes pain immensely, I was freaking out because how can I get herpes when I have not been sexually active, the emotional stress I went through was INSANE, the doctors do not even give you some type of relief without medication or ointments which do not work on the severe itching and pain. My home remedy was so desperate I needed to STOP the PAIN and itching, so I thought what would relive the active nerves ,but other than toothache medicine, I rubbed some of the gel up in the affected area, RELIEF finally,after I used cornstarch once the gel dried, even a cold wedge(like a steak fry) of a russet patatoe ,it will pull out the heat from the PAIN and calm the itching, or used cold tea bags, black or green tea, they have antioxidant qualities, with this it allowed the meds and ointments to help, this was an immense remedy for a HUGE SIGH OF RELIEF. I too have children,and grown teenagers, one 7 yr old, all boys and I was so EMBARRASED,and MORTIFIED, on how the HECK could I have this STD, when I HAVE NO SEX PARTNER AND AM NOT SEXUALLY ACTIVE, and for one, I am constantly preaching to them about hygiene and loose girls, and here their Mom ends up with an EMBARRASSING diagnosis. My doctor explained I could have had it years ago and never had the symptoms till it was awakened by severe stress/traumatic depression, my mother had just passed away and with a parent's death in any child's life, it is affected severely, the pain of my Fibromyalgia, lack of sleep and financial stress with the incident of my vehicle being broken into in which the battery was stolen and the electrical wiring damage they caused brought it on like an avalanche.Don't stress too much, just make sure you wash your hands constantly, use antibacterial gel,after each bathroom use, I also would spray the seat with a spray bottle filled with Clorox/water, or wine the seat with a paper towel dipped in rubbing alcohol, just to be safe for my boys. I researched the virus and it states the virus dies within seconds of not being on an active cell and host, but I still took precautions,being that there is so much information and one different from the next,use your better judgement, best of health luck and I hope these home remedies may help you find RELIEF.

Hi, I feel your PAIN and FRUSTRATION. I am going thru the same nightmare. The problem with me is I am celebate,have been for 7 years and was just diagnosed. I too was desperate unable to sleep,urinate without the severe burning, and live life normally. My doctor explained to me that it is a dormant virus, and can be affected by severe stress, trauma or just depression alone, I have been severely sick with fibromyalgia, it causes INTENSE pain through out the body, immensely, I was freaking out ,because how can I HAVE HERPES when I have not been sexually active,IN YEARS, the emotional stress I went through was INSANE, the doctors do not even give you advice on what to use for the RELIEF from the nerve darting stings,itching and piercing burning sensation, just some PRESCRIPTION for medication and ointments to swallow and rub, which do not work 1/2 the time instantly on the severe itching and pain. My home remedy was so desperate I needed to STOP the PAIN and itching, so I thought what would relive the active nerves ,but other than toothache medicine, I rubbed some of the gel up in the affected area, RELIEF finally,after I used cornstarch once the gel dried. During nightfall I even applied a cold wedge(like a steak fry) of a russet patatoe ,it pulled out the heat from the PAIN and calmed the itching, or I used cold tea bags, either black or green tea,for 5 minutes, they have antioxidant qualities, with this it allowed the meds and ointments to help, this was an immense remedy for a HUGE SIGH OF RELIEF.

Stop worrying and don't feel bad. You just need to do some homework on the internet about the subject. Use raw honey for your outbreaks and avoid sex at the first sign of itching until lesions have completely healed. It is more difficult for women to transmit g herpes to men than men to women. Just wash your hands after using the lavatory and put any washcloths and towels and undergarments in the washer. Do not touch the genutal area and then touch your mouth area. Observe these simple rules and you will get thru it and over time the outbreaks get less severe and further apart. Try to be nice to yourself. It is very common to have herpes and don't feel badly your life is far from ruined. Just refrain from sex during the active phase and you can do this!

You are not alone! When I was first diagnosed I felt alone and like nobody wanted me. I felt like my life was over and fell into depression. When I told people I felt they would judge me but everyone I told was super supportive for the most part and told me about other people they had knew living with the same disease or about their personal stories. Sadly that's how common genitail herpes is. Take your disease and do something positive with it. Warn and support others as much as you can. Have your partner get tested so that you can figure out his sexual status and although it's hard to have the 'cheating' talk have it because all people involved need to know that they are risk. Help stop the spread! Take of your self look at your disease in a new light and PRAY. Prayer is what's responsible for all of my strength. I try my best to leave all my worries on GOD and talk to someone close to me when I start feeling down. You will be okay! And you are still normal. You will make it. And lots of people need you,care about you and love you. Tell your self something poster everyday. Google natural ways to keep outbreaks away. Doctors aren't always super informative but there is lots of information on the web. I don't know you but I will pray you learn how to cope,live life and accept what you can't currently change. God bless.
