Write-up: To start, I had chicken pox as a child, 6 years old. On April 24, I had laser hair removal on my vagina - which I?m required to shave. The laser really gets into the skin, leaving it raw and open to infection. I received my vaccine 5 days later. I experienced chills, body aches for 2 days after, then the rash on vaginal area became extremely inflamed and red. I went to urgent care, doctor stated it did not look like genital herpes, but a skin infection. The following morning, it was worst, so I went to medical facility, who swabbed it. Came back as HSV-2. A week later, i had blood work G and M, which showed no signs or Antibodies for HSV- 2. I read an article that the vaccine is related to shingles activation. From my understanding: A dermatome is the area of skin supplied by a particular nerve. The varicella zoster virus lies dormant in the cranial and spinal nerves. When the virus is reactivated, it travels along the affected nerves to the area of the skin served by those nerves, where it causes a distinctive, stripe-like rash. Which, was my vaginal area after intense laser. Im also aware the the herpes zoster can be confused with gential, even in a culture that only test for hsv 1 and 2.
