 Post subject: Can outbreak site move?

For the 14 years since I was diagnosed, all obs have been on my right buttock. In the early years, I'd run to the doctor when I had an ob to check on whether there were vaginal sores or any on the cervix. None.

Now I have a small painful sore on the outside of my labia toward the back. Never had this before. Soap hurts when showering, water hurts when rinsing. It's painful enough that I would have noticed if I'd had this before.

I will call my gyno's office in the morning to see if they can squeeze me in tomorrow. But I wanted to ask--can the ob site move after all these years?

actually no real reason to be seen. you know you have herpes. this sounds like a recurrence. yes indeed they won't always be in the same location for a lifetime.

did you start antivirals to help speed healing?

Yes, I know I have herpes, but wanted to know if this is indeed an outbreak in a different location. So far (10 years) I have avoided transmitting to my husband, so I wanted to know what's what. My gyno (who I just saw) actually doesn't think this sore is herpes, though he took a swab for culture.

Oh, I didn't answer your question--yes, I started acylovir in case it is a herpes sore.

the location of your ob's is meaningless as far as asymptomatic shedding. whenever you have anything going on genitally, avoid sex until it's healed.

did you start acyclovir prior to the lesion culture?

has hubby been tested at all recently?

Yes, I started acylovir before the swab, which could affect the result. However, the progress of the sore is consistent with the doctor's visual evaluaton that it's a boil. Regardless, it hurts too much for sex anyway.

My husband's last test was about 2 years ago, < 0.9 for both HSV1 and HSV2.
