Herpes Symptoms

Symptoms vary, but often most people have no noticeable symptoms. 
Early symptoms of herpes may include:
  • burning sensation in the genitals or infected area
  • flu-like symptoms
  • lower back pain
  • pain when urinating
Small red bumps may appear in the genital area after initial symptoms, which later develop into painful blisters.
The blisters usually:
  • crust over
  • form a scab
  • heal
The First Outbreak
Symptoms usually  develop within 2-20 days after contact, but could continue up to 2 weeks.
The first infection may be so mild it goes unnoticed. In other cases, the first attack causes visible sores. Subsequent recurrences of the virus may cause an outbreak of blisters.
The virus retreats into the nerves and lies dormant. Even when there are no symptoms of herpes, transmitting the virus is still possible (asymptomatic viral shedding). 
Healing of the skin does not normally  leave scarring. 
Typical Symptoms
When it  gets into skin cells the virus reproduces itself  and starts to multiply, making the skin red and sensitive.  
Blisters or bumps may appear on the genital area, the blisters first opening and then healing with the regeneration of new skin tissue.

During the outbreak the infected area may:
  • be painful
  • burn
  • itch
  • tingle
Other symptoms include:
  • fever  
  • headache
  • infection of the urethra causing a burning sensation when urinating
  • muscle ache
  • painful inflamed blisters which develop around the infected area
  • swollen lymph glands 
  • vaginal or penis discharge
The first episode is the most severe, with most episodes lasting 10-21 days.  A  warning sign (prodrome) such as tingling is experienced by many people in recurring outbreaks.
Should any of these symptoms occur, consult your doctor or other health care provider immediately. 
Genital herpes should be diagnosed and treated professionally. 

How to manage your gential herpes infestion.

One of the most difficult aspects of genital herpes infection is trying to manage day to day activities while coping with painful genital ulcers. The first episode of infection is usually the most painful. Subsequent attacks are easier to manage. Understandably so many people are afraid of discussing their diagnosis and struggle with getting to work or school. For many people it is much easier to call in sick for work with a flu or a sprained ankle as
compared to genital herpes. Fortunately doctors will usually be happy to write a ‘sick note’ with no specific diagnosis to ease things for the patient.

There is no cure for herpes infection. Medications such as acyclovir can reduce the duration of the symptoms and viral shedding afterwards. People can shed virus even if there is no visible blister or ulcer.

It is really important to rest and stay well hydrated by drinking lots of fluids. Taking analgesics such as ibuprofen (if not allergic and if normal kidney function) can help a lot. It may be necessary to take the painkillers regularly. Specific measures to ease the local pain include the use of local anaesthetic gel or a paraffin based cream eg vaseline. Salt baths seem to offer good relief for many people. Rest, rest and rest.

Passing urine can be really painful especially when the urine comes in contact with the blisters. Simple non medical remedies work best after all these years. These old remedies recommend passing urine while sitting in a salt bath. The urine is thus diluted by the bath water and is less irritant to the ulcerated area. A slightly more modern take on this is to urinate in the shower with the shower spray directed at the genital area. Be very gentle
drying off.

Some people find it so painful to urinate that they deliberately drink less fluids. This is not a great idea. People feel generally worse when dehydrated. The urine that is passed is even more concentrated due to the fluid restriction. The more concentrated the urine the more painful it will be.

Sometimes and especially in the first episode of genital herpes patients can go into urinary retention. This means that they cannot pass urine and the bladder keeps on filling up. This becomes very painful. In rare cases it may be necessary to pass a tube though the abdominal wall into the bladder to relieve the retention of urine. Fortunately this is really rare! Remember to be kind to yourself. This episode will pass!

Genital Herpes Symptoms in women: 

Women have a four times greater risk of becoming infected with genital herpes than men. If a uninfected man and a healthy woman have  unprotected sex with an infected partner, the woman is more likely to contract dangerous herpes simplex type 2.

The first outbreak of genital herpes in women is more painful and lasts longer than recurrent herpes. Women develop a more severe disease and  present more complications during the first manifestation of the disease. Lesions may occur anywhere on the genital area, including the vulva, vagina, cervix and urethra. In addition, herpes can spread to other anatomical parts, such as the buttocks and thighs. These early eruptions are infectious for about three weeks, due to the blisters that contain large numbers of infectious viral particles.

Besides the eruptions described above, the woman’s womb lymph nodes may swell and become painful during urination. Meningitis is a serious complication that can occur in 10-15% of cases.
