Hi everyone

My husband asked me last night if I used the same soap that I use to wash myself when I have a genital OB as I do when I shave my legs. I said yes I do. Is this a NO NO???? Should I be using another separate soap when I do shave my legs?

Hi Kez,

I've read many times that it has been shown that soap deactivates the virus on contact. Hopefully, that's true!

But if you don't feel confident about it, I'd say just a bit of rubbing of the bar and running water over it between the two activities would make sure there is no problem, as the surface of a bar of soap wears away rather quickly.

Take care and Happy Holli-Dayz

Hmmmm, that's a good question. I have always used a different soap down *there* as I am very sensitive and prone to y.infections and irritation to regular soaps. I use Dove unscented and sometimes Vagisil (and that smells fantastic and for the life of me don't know why it doesn't bother me...lol) So I have always used a different soap but not for the reason hubby asked you....I think Realistic is right..rubbing the soap between the two should do it. Who knows?? Hahaha

Hi Daisy

I use a non-scented fragrance free soap anyhow cos like you I'm also sensitive to soap, but that's all over LOL

Hmmmmm yeah who knows & I'm not sure I want to find out if it's a bad idea?

      Thanks for your response! I received unprotected oral 10 weeks ago and immediately after had stinging in my glans and weird nerve pain. I am positive for HSV1 due to cold sores I got as a child, but as recent as 9 weeks after this exposure have tested negative for HSV2.    im nervous that I may have acquired hsv1 again on my genitals since HSV2 is rarely acquired from oral sex and doesn’t shed hardly at all, but haven’t seen any sores yet. Just weird symptoms and this started recently in my buttcrack when I was taking antibiotics.   Any advice or perspective would be greatly appreciated. @WilsoInAus

      Hi @Throwaway765 and welcome. There is absolutely no concern over this being related to herpes. Something must be concerning you as to the possibility of herpes… what is it?
