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:

      I have had a monogamous relationship for the last 6 years.  I did not have Herpes before the relationship.  My partner recently had an outbreak on the buttocks and was diagnosed with HSV2 about 2 months ago.  She said it was the first outbreak She had ever had. She has been taking valacyclovir for the last 2 months and we were intimate for the first time in about 4 months about a week ago.  Now I have an outbreak on my upper lip.  I read that this is not impossible, but rare. I wanted to ask others opinions on how HSV2 works, as I cannot help but find the situation really strange.  I totally understand that HSV2 can lie dormant for years, displaying no symptoms.  My partner says She has not been unfaithful, and I decided to believe her.  However, with this outbreak, a new doubt crept in, as I think it's really odd I would get an outbreak a week after being intimate, knowing I didn't have this before our relationship. I would appreciate hearing if this is possible, I love my partner and can't bear the doubt, but also don't want to feel I might be being blind.

      Hello, Im in the UK and have recently been diagnosed with herpes 2.  I am still coming to terms with it but i am keen to consider the stigma surrounding herpes.   If you don't mind.... would you tell me if you have told many people you have it?  What was their reaction?  Thanks guys x

      Hi Guys! I am newly diagnosed with HSV-2 and its the 7th day and my 1st outbreak is over. One week before the diagnosis I was at the prime of my life and the news gave me depression and I wanted to commit suicide knowing that I have a stigmatized NO CURE DISEASE. After a lot of research online I came across the combination herpes cure that I need to try. I have already chatted the support and they are quite informing in their responses about the 4-6 months protocol. Anybody who has tried it kindly share your sentiments and I will appreciate the insights... I feel pity for my life dear God why me please...

      Hi Guy! I am also two weeks into my first outbreak. This has made me do a lot of research for a permanent cure. I have seen Synergy Pharmaceuticals from Australia selling the combination herpes cure. Has anyone come across this? Does it look legit?

      I do pick them and pop them a lot so I think I’m just making it worse! Do they look like herpes to you though ?
