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:

      There are currently two Phase 2 clinical trials of the effect of valacyclovir (i.e. Valtrex) at the NIH and University Hospital in Umeå, Sweden respectively for the sole purpose of measuring the impact to Alzheimers of taking Valacyclovir in HSV1+ individuals. Anti-viral Therapy in Alzheimer's Disease https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03282916?recrs=ad&cond=Herpes+Simplex&rank=10 Feasibility and Effects of Valaciclovir Treatment in Persons With Early Alzheimer's Disease (VALZ-Pilot) https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02997982?recrs=ad&cond=Herpes+Simplex&draw=2&rank=11 We should have some compelling evidence by about this time next year as the Swedish study has been going since 2016 and is set to conclude in April of next year.  The NIH study is set to conclude in 2022 but either way, on simply the mounting causal evidence, I'm going to continue taking my antivirals.

      It still sucks for those of us in our 40's. Granted you will have to deal with it a lot longer than I, but it still sucks.
