    I’m just 18 and was diagnosed of having genital herpes. I don’t know how long I can hide this from my parents. I don’t want to take any medication because they might find out about it. Help..

    That is the smartest thing I've ever heard. So how do you want us to help? Hold the medication for you and you can pop over a couple of times a day to take it? Just see a doctor, get some medication and start treating it. To make you feel better you do know it cannot currently be cured? But if you get treatment it will help.

    Why would they EVER have to find out?
    You're 18, just go out and pop into a pharmacy - if you're able to have sex [in order to get the herpes] I'm sure you're able to get time away from them.

    Then, with the medicine, keep it hidden at the back of the drawer, or in a shoe..or something, and then apply/take when you're in the bathroom, or in your room with your door closed.

    How is that hard? Surely you've hidden things from your parents before?
