HI I was diagnosed with herpes type 2 on march 22nd and my first outbreak was textbook characteristic:Very painful sores that appeared 3-5 days after intercourse that went away after a few days with valtrex. Since then I have been taking lysine and have had a couple of almost outbreaks, but nothings nearly as bad.
About 2 weeks ago, a few days after a sexual encounter I got really itchy in only the pubic region, not labia(which is where I got herpe sores) there were pimple like small bumps all over so I thought I was crabs and bought that cream and it did not help. I went to the doctor and he said it was razor burn and gave me an antibiotic cream- I do shave- and when I insisted it has Never itched like that from shaving he gave me scabies cream. I used the cream and followed directions but The symptoms have gotten worse and now my whole labia and pubic region is extremely itchy and it looks almost like a rash, raised leathery skin that gets more inflamed the more I itch. Small bumps have also started to form on my thighs and lower abdomen. My scalp is also itchy and my armpits and back are starting to but I think I may just be thinking about it too much.
Is this a weird genital herpes outbreak or do I have something else in addition? It is driving me crazy I cant help but itch please help!!!

  • yes; herpes does all kinds of stuff...but it could be something else, too...did you get blood work for syphilis, too? could be the valtrix or anything...lysine is not good to take all the time..switch to lauricidin at www.lauricidin.com
