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!

      Hi! I was diagnosed one year and four months ago. Not a major first outbreak. Than 2,5 months later my second. Then faster a Little ob. Then is was without for almost 7 months. I really felt that was how i could handle things. Then in June i started having ob after ob. It was a very hot summer here in Holland. Also started a new relationship so more frequent sexual Activity. Not sure what coused it but those things i did feel like could trigger it.  Started acyclivir two months ago. That helps a great deal. But really dont want to Stay on Anti virals. Willing to try natural stuff but also right now feeling very happy not worrying all the time. Need to discuss again with my doctor soon.

      Oh wow that sounds mind boggling,, maybe your diet is your problem as well. Dang I thought guys had it a little easier seeing as tho you could keep your ob's dry better than a woman for it to heal..  I've never heard of Neem what's is that

      Yea I believe it may have to do with my diet i just recently cut out beef, chocolate & nuts & started eating more fish & fruits & smoothies and my symtoms are going away suprisingly. I think it was more so the chocolate for me lol smh im gonna miss it. And NO WAY your stomach!?? Like how does that happen lol that's so weird
