How to Deal with Lesions

Posted on 06 May 2011

If you have herpes, you are probably well aware of the lesions that can develop. If you suspect you may have gotten herpes recently you should learn all you can about herpes lesions and what you can do about them.

It may take a few days after your outbreak begins, but eventually you will get sores and lesions where the virus occurs in your body. This can be a very painful experience for both women and men. Of course, the lesions are in different places depending on your sex, but both are painful.

These sores may start off as small bumps that later turn into large blisters. These herpes lesions may open up and dry. This is meant to speed up the healing process, so make sure you do not pick at the sores.

The sores may appear as clusters together, which can cause a lot of discomfort. This may be because the virus spreads to parts of your body through contact. Lesions caused by herpes favor the genital region or mouth region.

These lesions are actually compared to chickenpox in appearance, but don’t itch as often. In both cases, the lesions are highly contagious if another person touches them. You even have to be careful with sharing clothes or towels with family members or friends. This virus is easily spread to others.

If you have herpes you may feel like your life as you know it is over. Truthfully, you will have to take many more precautions socially and sexually that you would have to take if you didn’t have the virus. But the more you get used to your outbreaks and lesions, the better you will be able to handle them.

There are even couples where one person has the virus and the other does not. They learn that they cannot have sex during an outbreak, and that they must be more careful than other couples. Even with these precautions, they are able to lead perfectly normal lives.

Herpes lesions can be unsightly and painful. If you have these sores, you will need to take special care not to spread the virus to other people. There are ways to live a normal life even when you have herpes, so do as much research you can and love life again.

    I hink I have herpes, if I have them I know who I got them from. Can I charge that person for not telling me he had them? I am very scared, my fiance say’s he still wants to marry him even tho I cheated on him and may have gotten an STD. I really dont want to give them to him. What can I do?

    Do not sleep with your fiance unless your a hundred percent sure that its been detected. get tested first and if it comes out positive then you have to approach him and tell him what happened. hopefully he’ll be understanding about it. Then again the same thing happened to me about a week ago prior to today. I got abused and found out i had herpes. Scary and im in the same boat as u. i found it hard to urinate and i was diagnosed with type 2. so i get them in the genital region. every time ur upset or stressed it breaks through so minimise the levels. Hopefully one day they,ll find a cure for this virus. Plus i guess you need as much support as possible its the only way u can get through this i reckon.

    I found a sore in my vulva yesterday. I slept wd someone six days ago… do you think I have the same virus.I’m scared.

    Having to have found herpes in our vulva three days after having sex is not a definite way to determine if in fact you have come in contact with someone who has Herpes, however, if you have been having sex with a number of individuals before you have had sex with this person I would strongly suggest that you go to the nearest clinic and get yourself checked-out. ASAP!

    i was told i had herpes 5 yrs ago never had a breakout discharge nothing. now i been sleep with this guy then a breakout came. is it possible he gave it to me. or haves it and double my trouble

    Tammy,it is possible that it was just time for the outbreak to come on, usually once you contact the virus you will have the first inital breakout then it goes dormit into your body and can come back out during stress, or when you are sick and you immune system is weak. It could be becuase he had the virus also but there are so many factors why it could have came out. Once you have the virus it can’t get worse so double trouble no, just an outbreak. Get on meds like valtrex which is a suppressent to the virus. It will help you not have outbreaks and if you do shorten them and not let them be as painful. I hope this was some help :)
