Hi, I'm only 23 years old and i was diagnosed with having Genital Herpes 3 days ago and i'm having my first outbreak and I have never been in so much pain in my life! I was given Achlivor anitibotics and painkillers and I'm wondering if anyone else is on those antibiotics and how long it took for it to clear up? I get an awful sting when I pee and I am so scared to pee now! Tried salt baths yesterday aswell and I don't think they are helping! Was told putting vaseline on the sores can help?! Does anybody have any other things i could try or can give me an idea on how long it will be for it to clear up? Also, had to tell the guy I have been seeing for the past 8/9 months and he is the only person I have been with but he says he doesn't have it! He was in Thailand in May this year and had unprotected sex with alot of women but he got tests done when he came back which were all clear.. but i've read somewhere that they can't tell if you have Herpes unless you have an outbreak/symptoms.. could he have gave me it eventhough he hasn'5 had any symptoms?! He is going to get tested again this week but he is not sure if he wants to continue seeing me or not! I'm not really dealing with this well as how are you suppose to find a relationship when you have this?! Everyday i cry at least 3/4 times! Any help or advice would be much appreciated!
