  • I've read that you can have a breakout for the first time up to 7 years after you actually contracted herpes. So yes, it's definitely possible.

  • Yes. I don't have herpes but I know people who do. It can take years to come out just like HPV. Valtrex is the med to keep it under control. Go see a Dr.

  • Op here...I'm really embarrassed to go see my Dr to even speak out loud that i have this .....Just shows the kind of person he slept with because i found out he cheated when i went to the Dr and he called and said i had Trick and a bacteria infection...

  • Yes it is. I'd see a doctor anyway. They see this stuff all the time. He can give you a prescription to take for whenever it flares up again. You can also get further testing just in case you have something. Herpes can remain dormant in your body for a long time before you have a breakout. Sorry this happened to you, but you have to think of your health over your pride.
