Even water hurts...

Recommended Posts



I am having my first OB. I think it might be getting better but there is still a lot of pain especially when I try to clean the area. Any contact with anything hurts. I keep reading that a lot of people get relief from the shower or cold water but any contact with water and I get severe stinging pain. I am having a really hard time keeping it clean. I have a yellow/green discharge that I have read some about too. I am an uncircumcised male and its important that I keep it as clean as possible obviously. I just don't know what to do if even water hurts. I have tried some of the home remedies listed but they hurt too.

I havent read this problem anywhere here. Is it not common that the sores are extremely sensitive to water (and everything else)?

Sorry to hear you are having such a bad outbreak. I have been on this site for 2 months now, and have read about water stinging for some people. I have heard of some people using a diaper rash cream. Maybe you could put that on before you shower, at least until the pain subsides a little anyway.

inwardsinger, It might be a good idea to see a doctor to make sure that you don't have a secondary infection going on there.

I hope you heal quickly!

      If your eye was affected by HSV you'd be in intense pain and you'd be in the hospital on an antiviral drip.  It is likely a coincidence of timing, and something that you shouldn't overthink.  Definitely worth getting checked anyway since the eye is a sensitive area.

      I found this website today. You can now pre order Viblok but no potential delivery date is given. The company is in Florida and I called but got a recorded message. https://www.viblok.com/

      Here's something interesting. You can now pre-order Viblok.  However, the website does not indicate when it will be available. https://www.viblok.com/

      Hey all. I had an STD check while pregnant with my now 3 yo and it was perfectly clean, hadn’t had another one until a few months ago   I was sexually assulted about 4 months ago. Because of that I asked for all STD testing. My first HSV 2 IGG score came back at 4.00, I requested another 2 weeks later and it’s now a 3.22 IGG. Should I take this as for sure positive or would it warrant a WB at all? Is it normal for numbers to go down like that?   Ive had NO symptoms whatsoever, at any time     Also, condoms, guys what are the best ones that feel as natural as possible?? Any ideas?
