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:

      So ur saying the herbalife was the key?? Olive leaf extract and pro biotic are good? How many mgs of Lysine did you take a day?

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
