Help please recent hsv type 1 diagnosis

Posted , 4 users are following.

I was diagnosed with herpes type 1 last month and suffered a bad genital breakout I took aciclovir for this. however I am experiencing intense itching but cant see any visible sores or ulceration just red and inflamed labia. I am also experiencing alot of clear vaginal discharge no smell or anything quite sticky to the touch and alot of it.

what should I do?

    I can feel the clear fluid leaking out of me. could this be herpes blisters inside my vagina that I can't possibly see? as I also have tingling and itching also

      It does possibly look like there are blisters that have popped without noticing at the bottom right. Either way, pus is not healthy and should be looked at by a doctor
