Recommended Posts

postivelove30

Me again...what a rollercoster this is....so i finally figured out how to stop the itchying with benedryl and baking soda...and all the lesions and wounds are healed over...but I still LOOK a mess! The sores are healed but I dont remember any "crusting". they just kinda turned red and it looks like scars everywhere. AND NOW I have little red DOTS everywhere even down my thighs a little bit. Theyre not raised, just little red dots - ive had these before in other places and my mom has a lot of them....am i having another outbreak or is this beacuse I'm on my period or is it still healing or is there something I should be doing?? I dont want to be left scared and gross looking! PLZ help.....

I'm also starting to get a little burny....OH I'm on day 3 of suppressive meds, 400mg twice a day....

I'm going to try cough medicine and baking soda like you have - after my current dressing of tea tree oil and honey has seemed to run its course.

I hope you figure out what those spots were and that they aren't herpes virus breaking out in new places.

I never said cough meds - i said benedryl tablets - its just an allergy pill. I take one or two of those, then put the baking powder and water mixture on the skin....

Oh I see.

I'd heard elsewhere that cough mixture mixed with baking powder was effective. - First stinging a bit, then numbing down and permitting a night's rest. I thought your plan was similar, so upon hearing it the second time I thought it must be a good thing to try.

I thought Benadryl was an American cough syrup.

So allergy tablets work as well? Excuse my ignorance.

Oh - right, I forget different countries post here...yeah im american and i meant benadryl, which are tablets taken orally and they are just an anesthamine. They help.

      (For my case: i am not diagnosed herpes. I had genital warts. 
      I can tell her a sex partner was diagnosed with HPV, and i pretty surely have it and that's why i do it with boxer short the next months. Hm.)   https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf https://www.cdc.gov/std/herpes/stdfact-herpes-detailed.htm

      How long after diagnosis did you start to have sex again? How did he get it on the lips?

      Hi,  I was wondering if you could describe your outbreaks or how much time it passed before you where correctly diagnosed. Or your overall experience. I am freaking out and just wearing my underwear feels uncomfortable.  How did they diagnosed you? Thank you in advanced

      I THINK this will benefit us. If the FDA allows more aggressive research in the deadliest virus programs, such as HIV gene editing, then off-targeting and other safety issues might already be solved before Dr. Jerome  starts editing hsv in humans.
