hi, i can somewhat relate too him. i have genital herpes and im only 17, ill be 18 next month. i felt the same exact way as him and i still do every now and then. the only thing that made me feel better and be able to deal with this and take it in better was being on here and educating myself about herpes. ive read and learned alot. the most part that helped me was seeing how common it is and how half the time people do not no they have it. i havent told anyone about me having it because im like him i felt like id never be loved or people will think bad and talk bad about me. ive only told my mom and my bf, and both are very supportive. i think the best thing for him to do is educate himself about it, you can talk to other people on here with herpes and theres this chat website made for people with herpes only. i get on it and it helps me. i hope he can accept it because its not the end of the world and it will never make him any less of a person. its just something you have to live with like anything else in this world. i wish him the best and if he ever needs someone to talk to im here View Thread

ive had that before and my doctor gave two doses the same day and told me not to have sex for a week or two . so too your q's on how long id wait a week or two just to be safe because u just took the pills and it can come right back if u have unprotected sex. the medication stays in your body untill it clears up. but id def go get tested when you can and hopefully its goneView Thread
what exactly do you have??? and i think you should go see the doctor that doesnt sound good at all. i have genital herpes, im not exactly sure what u have but i no i felt sick after i found out only because i worked myself up a cry for a week lol and the pills i take made me feel nauseated for a while. but i def think u need to see your doctor about thatView Thread
she told me my cold sore looks like a normal cold sore anyone gets and not like a oral herpes cold sore. im not sure what that means. all i no is my cold sore is never fluid like or never has any in it or looks like a bubble. it just looks like dried cracked skin on the corner of my mouth were it creases.View Thread
im not sure its for genital herpes anf for when i have outbreaks so it wont itcha nd hurt so much. she just told me i only have it genitally and not orally but that you can get a cold sore from having a ob when you have genital herpes. im not sure though ive always gotten cold sores though since i was little when i got really bad upset or really stressed out.
