"Pain"
 
   LAST EDITED ON Jun-05-11 AT 05:18 AM (CDST)
 
I'm yet to be diagnosed, and have had one IgG test for HSV1 and 2 come back negative. However, I have been suffering chronic herpetic type genital pain for nearly three months, which all started after a sexual encounter. I am struggling to get this under control. Does anyone have any suggestions? The od thing is that I have never had a blister or sore that I can see, but instead, just redness and burning. The burning type discomfort never seems to cease. P.

   HSV1/HSV2 isn't going to cause constant genital discomfort for 3 months. It's always the kind of thing that comes and goes.......you get an outbreak, some discomfort, it heals, and then it's dormant for a period of time. What else have you been tested for? Have you had any treatment for a fungal/yeast infection (aka jock itch)? This is pretty common (and sexually transmitted) and causes burning and redness and itching and it is going to happily live in a warm moist environment and not go away without treatment.

   Hi there, have been tested for everything and all negative. I don't think this is fungal, nor does my doctor. My initial symptoms were consistent with a viral infection, and we are unsure what's going on. I have had some neuropathy, numbness, burning, and tingling. Just no blisters or obvious sores. P.

   Have you seen a neurologist? What about your initial symptoms made your doctor think it was a virus? Have you spoken to the person that you had sex with to see if they are having anything similar or if they have any history?

You don't have any redness or skin irritation at all?

   Initially, I had a red sore and quite painful area on the head of my penis, and the doctor's who examined me suggested it may be viral. Having tried several antibiotics with no success, viral is what we are thinking. Have tried to track the person down with little success. The head of my penis goes red when the burning is most severe, but I haven't seen and blisters or lesions. P.

   An antibiotic isn't going to help a fungal infection.......might be worth a try since it's OTC and red irritated skin is typical with a fungal infection.

   Well, just tested positive for genital herpes. No blisters or sores, just pain non stop. This makes no sense. P.

   I had one IgG come back negative 8 weeks from the onset of pain. At 10 weeks, I had another and was just told it was positive over the phone today. It was an IgG and they are getting the actual figures from the lab for me. P.

   Post your test results when you get them.....sometimes it's borderline and a little iffy. You might want to post in the support section because you'll get more of a response. The test result should tell you the type also.

   Will do. The thing I don't understand is the chronic pain. Before this, I was fit and very healthy with no problems. As soon as my symptoms started, bang, chronic genital pain, but no blisters or sores. I can only assume this is rare and HSV is the culprit.

   Looks like the test was a nonspecific IgG and the results are just that herpes antibodies were detected.....

   I think you need another test, type specific this time. I don't think you can read the test as positive or negative without the numbers.

   Right...I had a bioelisa (I think) Type 1 and Type 2 test. Results for Type 1 are 0.315 and Type 2 0.054.

How can a nonspecific IgG be positive and the type specific ELISA be negative (this was 12-13 weeks post potential infection).

Is the bioelisa test no good? I am not fully sure if it was this test, have asked the lab to confirm.

P.

Some of the non-specific tests are more sensitive for hsv1 than the type-specific tests. That's one possible explanation. Another possibility is a false positive.

I'm not familiar with the bioelisa test, but from what I can gather in a few minutes of searching, it's made by biokit, and there are type-specific kits for hsv1 and hsv2 IgG and a non-specific test for IgM.

   I had a look at the biokit website, and am unsure whether or not they are reliable tests. I assume they must be reasonably comparable to other ELISA tests. I agree about the nonspecific IgG test, and the possibility that it may be a false positive...or the possibility it may be correct....who knows? I guess the only thing I can do is get retested in the future?

Pete
