um there IS no blood test for herpes- culture only- I have genital herpes and if it is in your anal area it is not simplex ONE it is simplex 2. and you need to get Zovirax cream RX or Zovirax pills for breakouts.

I was going to say... I had to do a research paper on herpes about 3 years ago, and as I recall simplex one is only cold sores of the mouth. simplex 2 is below the belt. but in all reality it's all the same! herpes is herpes.

God some people are rude.



I don't know much about herpes, but can you take some kind of medication for it? Like I have seen commercials for meds for herpes, but that was kind of a long time ago.



Acidopholis is really good for your reproductive health and women's parts.. but I don't know that it would do much for herpes. You could try it.. you can get it health stores in pill form or eat yogurt (not the kind that is loaded with sugar - brands like Mountain High or Greek.) Maybe you can try taking a warm sitz bath?

SOME people have a sense of humor - and I dont knwo about you but when someone tlaks of herpes I think it calls for a joke intermission - you know since she is having anal itching she may need a laugh or two - GEEZE never thinking about other peoples feelings ARE YOU????

I didn't name names or quote anyone, I simply made an observation. Apparently YOU think you were being rude.

yes, actually there is now. And yes- you CAN get either virus either place.. it just is harder to transmit that way.
