Ob on inner thighs????

Recommended Posts

Lookonthesunnyside

K so I have had this before, and first noticed this last summer (about a year after contracting GH). I will get these small patches on my inner thighs that dont itch and look like darker dry flat marks on my skin. When I touch the area the skin feels dry, they're not red, the color just looks darker than the rest of my skin. (Im fair skinned). They are less noticeable when I pull at the skin.

They also tend to occur with a few on each thigh (almost exactly opposite sides but same place) at the same time, then fade after a few days.

I'm not overweight and I dont sweat a lot, I doubt there's any way it could be friction or anything like that since my thighs dont touch.

So is this probably herpes? I read online that it could be something fungal? (EW), but I donno if it would keep coming and going if it was.

They're not very noticeable, but I am still in the habit of checking up on things 'down there' frequently so when I have looked closely I've sometimes noticed them.

To people who get obs on their thighs or butt, does this sound like an ob?

I would really appreciate any suggestions/input/ideas!

Also, they started appearing (unless I just didnt notice it before), after I started a new serving job. However I'm constantly switching my outfits and often wearing dresses/skirts, so I dont think its related to anything I'm wearing.

I do remember having an ob on my right inner thigh way back when I was first diagnosed, but it looked/felt different and it was very clear what it was to me. Also it was lower down than these marks are, they're very high up.

I'm almost certain that when I contracted hsv1 I also got ghsv1. I have never had a visible outbreak on my genitals, but I have had extreme itchiness and had a visible bump, that was also itchy, on my inner thigh. It was a raised, reddish bump. It did not really look anything like the sores I get on my mouth.

When I first contracted it i got a rash on my inner thighs, both sides of my nuts. went away after 2 weeks and left me alone.

Came back again in october after going camping and the frikkin thig wont go away now, itchy and red. some days worse thatn others.

So I went to my doctor and she said that what I have on my thighs sounds like contact dermatitis. The descriptions I've read online match it exactly. Its more recently included welts and almost scaly streaks that quickly come and go. I read online that it could be because of clothing or could be something fungal. So my doc said to come in asap next time I notice the rash so that she can take a look.

Lovely :rolleyes:

      I agree your post was very well written. I think I was speaking from more of a GHSV1 perspective as it relates to the oral virus so many carry and spread.   I too, before being diagnosed, was small minded and ignorat about herpes. But I believe it had to do with the way I was brought up. Looking back now I want to say it was because of my experience in college. I went to ASU, we are absolutely known for partying and STI’s. I was heavily involved in Greek life, and bascially if one person found out you had herpes your life was changed  socially and romantically. You were the girl/ guy on campus with herpes. A bunch of little 18-22 year old shits who didn’t give a flying F if you said HSV1 or HSV2. It was herpes. That’s all they were known for. Surrounding schools found out and people from your hometown found out. Maybe my generation sucks but that’s extremely sickening to witness and go through.  I now work in marketing with a bunch of people my age and older. There is a guy who disclosed and was open about herpes to a lot of us in the office and again, he was just known as the herpes guy. And no, not by me but grown adults with real jobs and education. Most likely those adults statistically had some strain of it too. But again these are my experiences. I know they are wrong now but who knows when the rest of the world will catch up.

      Some more good news on crispr! Restoring cells to an uninfected state once a virus is destroyed. https://phys.org/news/2018-09-cells-uninfected-state-virus.amp Now if only they could remove this virus from each of us and fix the effective cells would be no longer a dream!

      But don’t you have an oral HSV-1 infection? Condoms don’t protect against that?

      Give it a try and report back to us. It's pretty safe vaccine approved by the FDA.
