Long OB I want to cut them off

Recommended Posts

Myz

Ok So I was diagnosed about a year ago now with HS2... Of course I feel terrible and alone and dirty and my sex life is over never date again all those feelings im sure everyone gets. Well I had a bump show up after being diagnosed then 2 then 3 then more. I have 3 at the base of my shaft 2 bigger ones above it. Then 4 scattered ones just below my waistline. This Ob is going on 10 months of no improvement or anything. I have been taking Lysine but not daily like I probably should. I have tried putting alcohol on them. Trying to be somewhat healthy and nothing changes. I have contemplated cutting some of them off. I know it would suck to just cut it off then probably deal with an open wound for a while. But a small scar would be so much better than what is there. I cant find anything on what would happen if I did this. Does anyone know or has anyone tried? Any kind of advice on what I can do would be great. My confidence would be a lot better if I atleast looked clean. Please help

It won't do any good to cut them off. Are these fluid filled blisters or something else?

You have the same blisters for 10 months ---- not healing ---- the same blisters???

This just doesn't sound right at all!

So like MrHonest asked, these are actual fluid-filled blisters?

Do they itch or cause pain?

Have you considered trying something like Dynamiclear on them? I've read some good reviews (as well as some that say it did nothing).

Another question --- how were you diagnosed? Were the blisters swabbed and cultured at that time?

And also, what about anti-viral meds? You mention taking lysine, but not any anti-virals. Have you ever tried any? Are you not taking any now?

they dont exactly look like any picture of herpes i have seen. They actually look like warts and I thought I had warts a while back. A previous partner got diagnosed with HPV so thats why I went and got checked. I had no visible marks at the time but before I got tested I had some small bumps. I went in for just blood tests since there were no marks. HPV came back negative and HS2 was positive. I didnt speak to the doctor again since I moved and lost the insurance. a few weeks later I started with the bumps. a couple are very hard and skin colored then others dont stick out as much and are reddish brown. I am a little color blind. One on the red onses is kind of hanging like it flaps over. There is some itching every once in a while on the skin toned ones but no burning or anything like that.

I haven't tried much of anything on them yet besides broccoli pills and the Lysine. Nothing has really worked. I have not put anything physically on them but alcohol a few times.

As far as antiviral I havent tried much just dont want to waste money on something that wont work. Especially since everything I find has good and bad reviews.

Looking more at wart pictures now make me think thats what it is but its just weird i didnt test poitive for that.... By the way thats just awesome if I have both HPV and HS2. maybe they wrote poitive on the wrong blank the whole time. I need to go get tested again is my thought right now. Any thoughts?

I guess I found herpes pictures that also look similar they just arent really grouped together... I just dont know what to think

I would see another doc about it. I was thinking HPV as well. It is harder to test for that with men, but if you have actual warts there, it should be easier.

Also, if that comes back negative again, maybe they should consider something like molluscum contagiosum? Just a thought.

Whatever it is, though, for the love of gawd don't try to hack them off yourself. :shock:

      Having HSV-2 has not bothered me at all for casual sex. I'm just avoiding sex during outbreaks, on suppressive therapy and using condoms every time with casual partners. Since my outbreaks appear on top of my penis, even during an outbreak the risk is minimal if I put a condom on as soon as I take my underwear off.  I guess it might be a slightly different case for a girl as if you have external lesions around your groin you could still infect someone even using a condom. And of course, condoms can break, which has happened to me over 10 times and caused myself to get infected in the first place.  I see it as a much more difficult now having a serious relationship, because I can't feel much with a condom on and really want stop using them. However, I don't want to put my new girlfriend to any risk - I would feel terrible if I infected her.

      Does anyone have experience about people's reactions to Herpes in Asia? Personally I live in Thailand where I also caught the virus as a condom broke 4 years ago.  Unfortunately I infected my ex-girlfriend with HSV-2. This was just after I had caught the virus myself and we had sex before I noticed and realised what it was. In the beginning, a local doctor told me I have just hurt my foreskin with my jeans' zipper and the tests came as negative. After getting tested later it came as positive.  Anyways, my ex-gf (well educated, professional, 26 years old then) she had no idea what Herpes was in the first place. She didn't really care too much about it and didn't bother to get tested. During our 3 year relationship we kept having unprotected sex as usual and she never had any issues until at the end one day. She had a very minor outbreak once and nothing after that (lucky her, no like myself who gets terrible symptoms non-stop). I know she has a strong immune system, because she was never sick despite myself having bad colds quite often. In any case, she could not care less about this virus and didn't mind at all.

      I've seen a lot of hysteria surrounding Herpes in Europe and the US. What has been your experience in South-East Asian countries like Thailand? Do people perceive HSV-2 as a worrying disease?

      The full article is behind a paywall but you could write the the authors and request a copy.

      The jury is still out as there needs to be additional experiments. Editas' results make me believe dosing was insufficient among other issues.
