Hey momof1son, I get cuts on my hand and other areas. I believe they are herpatic. My doctor doesnt think so, but herpes is a master of disguise! They dont always know everything. I know for a fact it is.
When i was being tested for H, i smashed my finger in a door, breaking the skin. Well, before i even got the test back i had an outbreak. That night i took a shower and cleaned my body as usual (didnt even think about the smashed finger until a couple of weeks later, when i got 3 cuts back to back on that hand and still get outbreaks on my hands and other places to this day as cuts.
Now someone may say that is not usually how herpes appear, but im livin proof. Never happened before this hidious virus, plus I remebered the guy i got it from had those same cuts on his chest (he claimed someone scrathed him playing ball he is a liar!
). Also in the begining, my outbreak would be a bump with a cut in the middle. Then it took on different looks, reddness, rashes, irritations....it is very frustrating and depressing at times. I try not to let it get me down though, I hope you will do the same.
I do know from experience not eating chocolate and cutting back on sugar ( these r my favorite things to eat) really helps, along with l-lysene and olive leaf extract.
Go with your instincts about your body. You may have to try different doses and different treatments. Wish you well.
