Scars on penis

6 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I am new to this forum and would like to thank everyone in advance for your help. I am 19 years old and was diagnosed with genital herpes about 5 months ago. I noticed two small blisters on my penis which would scab over for a couple weeks and eventually went away. The whole time, I never scratched or picked at it and actually applied Neosporin everyday. Now its about 4 months later and I still have two very small brown scars where the blisters once were. I have been told that herpes rarely leaves scarring so I was wondering if this was permanent, and if so can anyone recommend any types of treatments to help reduce the scarring. Thank you.

mine has been about 2 months and appears to be healed but I still have scars as well and I am pretty sure they are not going to be healed before my next outbreak, what type of GHSV do you have? cause most scars on a person body do heal over time so I would assume these would be no different, but if you have GHSV2 you might have OB's too frequent for those scars to ever heal.

I am still a little unclear of the time line of things here you mentioned 4 and 5 months before, but I would say if you have not had an outbreak in 8.5 months, you might not have too many outbreaks and it it may be possible to get the scars to disappear for a while. Do you take anything? I am not sure if antibodies have anything to do with outbreak frequency.

Well the ones from my first outbreaks the scars went away,, My second outbreak involved blisters which i popped immiditately and applied alcohol and hydroxide, and now is that they are starting to dissapear after 3 weeks tho.

Let me ask you a question, ever since you contracted the virus or think u did, has the condition or look of your penis changed permanently? cause I got the virus in Nov of 2007 but didn't get outbreaks til i found out I was positive til June of this year and that was when the outbreaks started after I found out i was positive, but form Nov of 07 til now my penis has not looked the same at all ever since I cought the virus? is anyone experiencing the same thing? Like it has never looked normal ever since i cought this virus even when I dont have an outbreak of scabs, cuts or blisters. :confused:

      I suspect it's HSV-2 because I started getting the "tingles" again and noticed a small developing sore/bump not even 3 weeks after my primary outbreak... I'm on day 3 of taking 2x 500mg Valtrex pills and I can still feel the tingle. I'm going to start suppressive therapy as of tomorrow. Hopefully just 1 500mg Valtrex pill a day will do it. Got a pivotal week ahead that's very important for my career and this is the last thing I can worry about now... Just making sure to get enough rest and eating well. Will resume exercising and hitting the gym hard after this week is over. I appreciate any words of wisdom/guidance! Still trying to make it through this emotionally, but I think I'm doing ok.

      I haven't heard that anywhere..........just go and get the test done

      It could happen during the period of time after initial infection but before someone develops antibodies.

      Go and see your dr so you can be informed.

      What herpes do you have, what testing have you had done?
    • Sarahbby28
      I've read it isn't as accurate if you already have type 1

      You keep asking what are the odds?  Its been stated in other threads.  Low. But there are variables.  You have been given info based on what we know about risks and transmission.  But its your body and only a test will demonstrate infection or not.

      Are you afraid to get tested for HSV2? You keep asking the same question.......why don't you have an IGG test to confirm the type?

      Folks please try to stay on topic - I know it's natural to want to offer support to any member in a thread like it's a chat room but it's a bit different. Let's not derail the OP's thread. This thread should focus on the OP's issue.
