Conditions with symptom: 'genital ulcers'
I have herpex simplex virus 1 as I had many years mouth sore colds. After Maybe 15 years I gave genital ulcers... Look like aphthous ulcers... I would like to know if Swab test will automatically come as positive cause of my mouth sore colds in past or it can come negative if it is not genital herpes but some diferent vaginal blisters.? Also is it possible that it can be this first genital outbreak cause by that virus 1 wht I had so many years? Or it has to be type 2? If it is type 2 it means I been infected just now? Cause first outbreak are 3--14 days or no symptoms at all..?
I had flu symptoms and it was extremely painful to urinate so i went to the doctors and was told it was genital herpes. Is there anyway of telling if you caught it was your last sexual partner or a previous one before? Also, can I catch oral herpes as well from giving oral sex with someone who has the virus? If I already have genital herpes. Im so confused, I dont know much about it, devestated to have it and i've taken antibiotics but the ulcers dont seem to go even though I am no longer sexually active. I feel like I can never have sex or oral sex again!
How were u treated? I was told by my doctor I couldn't have anything and to basically just get on with it :(

I was diagnosed with Behcet's disease in 2010 when I was 14 years old. It began with severe mouth ulcers and all the other symptoms shortly followed. However, this site says that there is a regular occurrence in mouth ulcers for Behcet's sufferers but I have not had a flare up for 4 years now. No more ulcers since that dreaded time in 2010. Is this also common? Fingers crossed it will carry on this way!
I went almost years without a break from oral lesions.. At that point I was diagnosed and the doctors started to try different medicines... I was put on steroids and it stopped the oral lesions almost completely... Could medicine be the reason for you not having them? Also, stress is a huge trigger, maybe you have been less stressed?
HI!!! I know that ulcers on the walls of our mouth and on our tongues are very common like stated above, however, i suffer from them quite frequently, causing me alot of discomfort. So I would like to know if there is anything that causes me to have such frequent ulcers. thanks

I have recurrent ulcers on the side of my tongue mainly in one side, the ulcers are always there but I get periods when they are not as sore then they seem to flare up and be really painful for months. it has been like this for over a year. GP treated it was oral thrush treatment but it hasnt made a difference. what is it? why does it occur and how do I get rid of it?
I am 17 years old, I've only had sex with 1 person, my boyfriend, and deffinatly know he doesn't have any STI's but just recently I noticed these ulcers down below like mouth ulcers and am very worried whether it is herpes or not. I've got an appointment next Wednesday but worried that by then it will all be gone and then they'll say to wait and come again next time. They are very painful and hurts when i walk, get up and sit down. any help? or advice?
I'm am also 17, have only slept with one boy (who I have now been with for two years) and was unlucky enough to have the same problem. Mine did turn out to be herpes, and I was told that it was likely my boyfriend had got it from previous sexual relationships in the past, but hadn't shown any symptoms. It is very painful, and not a nice experience especially when you don't deserve such rubbish luck, but the symptoms quickly go once you take the course of pills. As sorry as I am for you, it makes me feel a lot better to know I'm not alone with this.. hope it's the same for you.
Hi. Im 15. I court Genital warts of an older man when i was only 14. But i just wanted to know if they are working on a cure for Genital warts where it can get out of your system for good! Because I have Genital warts im worried incase when im older and i find the right one, he wont want me because what iv got. I have a very low self esteme for the past year and Im really worried for my future.
its a virus so unless medicine progresses amazingly, you're stuck with it. good news is though that your body should clear the virus in a couple of years so you wont have it any more. in the mean time you might want to have a chat with your doctor about smear tests. i have the wart virus and im happily married so its totally possible to find someone awesome. its actually pretty benign as STIs go as long as you keep up to date on your smear tests.
hi in 15 to and there is a cream called somex and it is ment to be very good my friend used it and she said it workd very well and her warts havent come back and its been two years since she has had them i hope this was helpful
