Hi everyone!I'm new to this forum but very glad it exists
here goes.........I visited my GP as I was experiencing typical thrush symptoms ie itchiness and creamy/white discharge so was given the canesten combi.5 days later I was back at the surgery ,still complaining and in alot of discomfort.I was then given a single swab test and a stronger prescription for thrush.
A few days later surgery called me to say I had a strep infection and was treated accordingly,that's 8 penicillin a day! I felt awful and no matter how I tried to tell myself I was feeling better I couldn't avoid the tiny red spots appearing on my genitals nor the agonising pain of simply having a pee.So again I end up in surgery and having an internal (most excruciating).My GP told me it didnt seem like Herpes but referred me to hospital on the same day where I had yet another internal,3 swabs and was told by the registrar that it looked like herpes
Have been taking a course of Aciclovir for 5 days now and although the initial pain has definately eased,the lesions seem to be spreading out
I journeyed back to hospital yesterday and waited for an hour to get my results,only to be told 2 of the swabs came back fine but 1(the one tested for HSV2) hadn't come back yet!In all I've had this outbreak for 20 days so far.
Just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience or has any advice or information regarding this.I'm feeling pretty low,stressed and confused at the moment not to mention the scared,in pain and angry as this thread is titled.Any help much appreciated
