Recommended Posts

oic

so i wake up, jog happily to my washroom, start the bath, doing this stupid little happy dance. I jump in the bathtub, and lace that shit with soap, while shaving my cooch, trying to feeeel fresh again, then i get all pretty for thanksgiving dinner.

''IM THANKFUL MY FIRST OB IS DONE!''

i yelled to myself in my thoughts.

then, i leave to walk to the restaurant.

itch. itch. irritation. tingle tingle tingle.

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU ------

If I wake up tomorrow with another OB because I shaved, I'm going to jump infront of a train. this is stupid.

The first time I shaved, I got a rash, not a herpes outbreak, but a rash. Never had that happen before! I have an electric razor that is designed for "below the belt" shaving, and that seems to not irritate things as much as a regular razor does. Although shave gel stings a little!

Hopefully if it does anything, OIC, it just causes some irritation or an itchy rash and not a full out H outbreak! It is a trial and error thing. If you find something that causes an outbreak, try something else. Frustrating, I know, but everyone is different, so what works for one person may not work for another.

so this is def. herpes then, i barely shaved and i have this terrible rash and its swollen and itchy, will this stop after a few years? i think this would be the worst thing about having herpes, i will never feel clean unless im shaved, if i dont shave the hair irritates me too :(

I feel the same way! If I don't shave, it seems irritated, but if I shave, it is irritated for a day or two. I definitely don't shave as often as I used to, and don't even attempt it if I am already irritated down there! I am hoping this will improve with time though!

afraid to grab the razor

I give you credit for trying to shave! I feel soooo gross not shaving, but since having a first OB in Sept, I have been afraid to try shaving. Even though I haven't had an OB since that initial one healed 3 weeks ago, I still feel different, afraid to shave and possibly spread it.

      @WilsoInAus thanks for the clarification. I am currently taking into account all possibilities that i might encounter, since my fiance is positive HSV-1. I am preparing myself for the future, if I however eventually get infected from him. Im on the brink . We will have an appointment with a Doctor on friday, to justify more about this and I am so anxious of knowing what the Dr will say. I am scare it might effect my decision of marrying him. How I wish this virus could be kill, how I wish life hasn't be this cruel to us. The day for us to tie the knot is just around the corner, everything had been prepared and we are tested with this news. Im showing my support to him right now but deep down, Im sooo scared. It's truly an adventure

      Note that it’s not an infection as we know it the eye, these are caused by bacteria. Sometimes though the virus will attack the cornea and cause issues. It is estimated about 1 in 50,000 people per year will suffer some vision impairment from HSV-1. However these people are almost always not treated with antivirals where success appears to be over 90% for preventing permanent damage.

      Hi @patpat I encountered same situation like yours. I really want to know what is your next step. Did you finally get married? How is your life now? Any advice?  I know this is an old thread but this is related to me. Would be so much relieve to be able to talk to someone in the same shoe. Hope you still buzzing around honeycomb

      BHT has helped me soooo much! When I first got infected my outbreaks were constant .. one would heal up and there comes another ... it was terrible . I was so fuxking depressed and miserable. I cut out the “trigger foods” took vitamin c and lysine .. drank apple cider vinegar .. nothing worked until BHT!!! Now that I take BHT i rarely have Outbreaks. If I do it’s because I sometimes forget and skip taking it .. or I eat some trigger food + forget the Bht .. but even then my outbreaks are SOOOO a mild compared to before . I’ve had outbreaks that have disappeared in a day . Sometimes I up my dosage on BHT when I do have a mild outbreak , and apply topically. It really has been such a blessing to find out about BHT
