Anyone have shingles on pubic area??

Posted , 3 users are following.

Developed small rash, so GYN tested for HSV both culture and both blood tests negative. He thinks it may be shingles, but too late to test for it now. Question is did anyone have white creamy vaginal discharge that doesn't seem to smell? Still have that even though blisters are now sealed over and healing.

    Hi there! I had a very similar experience. Six blisters on my labia majora/minora and three on my bum that were only tested for HSV. I didn't notice discharge, but I also started my menstrual cycle in the midst of having the blisters. Are you doing a follow-up blood test? I am about due for another to confirm it was not HSV, but both the swab and blood test (IgG) were negative. I do remember having some abnormal discharge the week after my cycle, but it has since cleared up. Has yours gone away? They really don't seem to test for shingles because they think pubic/genital shingles is abnormal, but I believe it is more common than they think!

    Have you had any residual nerve pain? I still have pain in the areas I had blisters (I believe the S2 dermatome) on my left side. I've been taking lysine regularly, as well as lots of vitamins. Good to know I am not alone!
