Question for people in the military service

Recommended Posts

Truth

I'm joining the army, and a friend once mentioned that I would hit the showers at the same time everyone does. Can anyone advise me how to keep everyone from noticing my outbreaks when they appear. Mines are downstairs. I would think that I could wear a towel, but I don't know what I'm getting into...

Thanks in advance!

My roommate is in the military. As far as I know, the whole thing is pretty open, but when he comes home from his drill Aug 1 I will ask him what he thinks.

I would think that as long as you don't shave completely and your outbreaks aren't horrible, no one would notice. It's my guess you guys won't go around examining each other's manly parts. Besides, 25% of them probably have it too. You might make some friends! :)

Thanks catiesmom and Seatortuga

Seatortuga I'm looking forward from your friends answer, thanks very much.

Catiesmom you do have a point on the friendship thing. I don't like to be all hairy down there, but maybe I won't have much time to shave down there anyways. The thing is even thou my outbreaks could pass maybe as ingrown hairs they show a little bit over the hairline just below the waistband of the underwear so it's noticeable even when the lawn needs to be mow.

Like you said, they could be mistaken for ingrown hairs. So, you pass them off as such if anyone notices, and unless someone starts spouting HSV statistics at you (in which case you know they probably have it too, and can confide), most guys won't think twice. They might tease you for a second, but i wouldn't worry about being "found out". Personally, anyway.

      Hello.... hope this message finds you well... Pay attention to your diet , there's a young lady on YouTube called Laureen HD... follow her sh is awsome...  Doctors never told me about diet part of it... so peanuts and other junk food I love had me experiencing minor outbreaks which take forever to heal , I'm not on suppression med which I decided just to do... makes no sense to take 12 natural pills when u can take 1. ..  watch your coffee,  sugar and nuts intake ( no pun intended) The after care remedies are good.

      Yes. I have had good experience with CBD oil over the past few months. Here is my "routine". When I notice the first signs of an outbreak, pop the blisters with a tissue, then apply 1 drop of 10% CBD oil rubbing it into the popped blisters for ten seconds or so. Then apply another drop twice a day (morning and evening) for as many days as needed.

      Healing shows progress even overnight. Usually the redness is gone within 1 or 2 days, and the blisters are tiny holes (hard to even see) within 2 to 3 days. Totally healed within 2 to 4 days.

      This has been the fastest healing of the many other approaches I have tried over the years.

      Ben 21 yaşındayım ve 7 ay önce herpes ile enfekte oldum. sevgilimden enfekte Herpes ağzında vardı, ama iyileşmişti ve bir oral seks yapmıştı. Bu enfekte. İkimizin de bir şoku vardı. Bu şekilde enfekte olduğunu bilmiyorduk. İlişkiye 7 ay geçti, ama cinsel organları bulaşmadı. Sürekli üzülüyorum ve bir saldırı geçiriyorum. Her gün ağlarım. hayatım mahvolmuş .. artık yaşamak istemiyorum. Bu gençlerle yıllarca nasıl yaşayacağımı bilmiyorum. Sadece ölmek ve ondan kurtulmak istiyorum Çok üzgünüm ve şanssızım .. Yazım hataları için üzgünüm çünkü bu bir antropoloji değil
