For the past few months though, we have both had pretty severe breakouts with bumps, severe itching, etc., brought on originally I think, by an off-brand clothes detergent we had never used before. From the brief description of your situation, some factor has entered the situation that has not been there for the relatively uneventful period of your marriage.
Re-inoculation is possible, but more likely some other inciting variable is active now.
I was wondering if genital herpes is commonly a disqualifying factor, when found in a pre-employment doctors physical. I cannot vouch for the way communities screen their candidates' pre- employment public service physicals, so I am unable to state what they commonly do/do not look for.
(Police, Fire & Medical Fields) Does genital herpes "show up" in a blood test that is conducted in these physicals ? I doubt seriously if any pre-employment blood test examines specifically for anti-herpes antibody.
You should consult a dermatologist to seek relief from the intensive itching.
If the lesions appear to be the same, your herpes is most likely making an annoying disturbance for a reason that I cannot answer.
The prescription antivirals make herpetic infection more tolerable, and they are being studied for their possible ability to lessen shedding.
My husband and I have recently been diagnosed with herpes.I have not had any outbreaks that I know of, and wonder what I should do?You did not indicate if your sexual activity had been protected; if so, you have prevented infection. If not, I suggest you change to protected sex, because you have been lucky.A clinical examination and conference with your health care provider hopefully should give you the direct guidance needed.My girlfriend of two years recently told me she has herpes and has known about for some time in which we were sexully active.Microorganisms, including viruses do not become immune.
