My doctor was happy to prescribe the medication straight away as the sooner you get the meds into you the sooner it begins to heal.
Can you perhaps get a second opinion? And if they too suggest herpes demand the medications. If it is your poor man would be in a bit of pain, especially trapped in nappies all day. TMI but wearing pads with AF was agonising as every time I moved it ripped the top of the blister off as they kept sticking, I can't imagine how a nappy would feel
Thanks for all the info, I truly appreciate it.
My husband, who suffers from depression, went to bed early as he is devastated he thinks he has infected his only son . I have tried to reassure him not to jump to conclusions. I am still confused. Lets say our son has genital herpes, is it true that even though his father has only ever had cold sores, he could have genetically inherited herpes from him?
I am thinking about getting a second opinion, especially now I have had time to stew on it for a while.
I know he is in pain/discomfort, every time we change a nappy he says 'sore, sore'. It breaks my heart. It is freezing here in Tassie but we even took him for a dip in the sea the other day.
Thanks for the link, I will have a read.
I would definitely get a second opinion and as suggested demand the medications, they heal the blisters within a few days. And either way I'm sure an antiviral couldn't do too much harm if it isn't actual herpes but some other reaction.
My DD gets a rash similar to chicken pox after going in a spa, it has my doctor puzzled as to what it is exactly but she still gives her an antiviral to help quicken recovery and lessen the pain.
Oh and also, do not use normal coldsore creams in the genital area, im unsure why but my doctor advised against it.
Has he got sores anywhere else only asking cause herpes and school sores look the same? My daughter got school sore and the first doctor told me it was herpes. I freaked they spread so it might be that?
