I was diagnosed with HPV about 6 years ago (thanks to my cheating ex-husband) and developed cervical cancer. The cancer was removed and I am happy to say I am cancer free. I got divorced and was dating someone for a long period of time, then we broke up and I started dating someone else when after about a month I realized I had red sores with white lumps, they really weren't blisters, but flat. I immediately went to the dr and was STD tested, it came up positive for HPV and exposure HP1 but not HP2. The dr said my bumps were caused by HPV and I had Genital Warts. I was freaked out but was relieved it wasn't herpes. That was last February I went the dr again this past week for routine screening and found out today my blood test said I have been "exposed" to HP2 and that my antibodies are high. From everything I have read I think that my dr may have misdiagnosed me and that what I have had since Feb is and has been herpes! I've looked at the pictures on-line and mine don't look like either. They only arrive on my genital area and since the first occurrence of about 6 bumps to include one near my anus, and it's usually only one or two bumps at a time and they are usually not close to one another, but never spread to anything further. They last about 4 days, the stubborn ones can sometimes last up to 7. When I was at the dr last I explained it seems like they are never in the same area and that I have had continuous recurrences, maybe 2 a month. I am under a lot of stress and have been for the past year and this is NOT helping. Does this sound like I have had herpes since Feb? If so does anyone have an suggestions on the best solutions to get a hold of this and slow it or keep it from reoccurring all together?
