: When I was tested for herpes (swab-culture), it
was negative, but the small sores may have
already started healing over. I would not rely
on the culture test though, since I know that I
have it even though the test was negative.

: The first signs of an outbreak for me are some
pains in the butt like you described, or some
tingling/numbness or itching on some area of the
groin/shaft/head where the tiny blisters/rash may
develop a day or so later. I get this every few
months or so, since I first noticed it, however
the butt pains and tingling do not always develop
into sores. If I take a lot of Lysine (an amino
acid) at the first sign of the symptom, then it
seems to help prevent an outbreak.

: If the sores/rash itches a lot and is
uncomfortable, and/or looks like tiny bubble
blisters, then you probably have it. If its on
your groin then it just looks like tiny red rash
or itcy ingrown pimple.

I am a female person and was also swab tested in my first outbreak in 1981. I believe I had the devil's share of really bad outbreaks. The symptoms I had with that first outbreak were that my hip joints and legs were painful and went wobbly when I stood up or tried to walk. I asked many experts and doctors, etc. if that was an associated symptom and they all said, "absolutely not". Now I have begun to hear about other people havng legs affected.
Long ago I heard a French-trained doctor tell about shingles, (another herpes virus) causing neurological disturbances in whichever limb or extremity was nearest, or whichever the virus chose to attack.
The wobbly leg symptom gradually lessened in subsequent outbreaks but have never been the same again. There is still a lot to be uderstood about this thing.
Meanwhile, hurray for Oregano Oil and Olive Leaf.
