Re: How do I have herpes and he doesn't?
Well - Everyone has a different reaction to Herpes some people don't even know they have it and have no reaction at all and others react very strongly. Just like you I had severe pain, I thought for sure it was the end of me as well. I told another girl this to, I took a bath with epson salt in it, I also got from my doctor a liquid that numbs the area which would make a lot easier to go to the bathroom and to put underwear and jeans on etc. I take valtrex for my outbreaks and I only take 1 pill twice a day for 3 days and that seems to help.
