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.

This is a frikkin burden.

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:

      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?
