First Anal OB - any relief recommendations?

Recommended Posts

LoudLaugh

I noticed the anal ob sores the other day when I felt the itching and since then the itching pain has not stopped. It's constant and dull pain but I have been managing to hide it well from family and friends. I'm already on acyclovir for this initial ob when I found sores by my vagina last week; tests results are pending.

The pain and itching of the sores around my anus were unbearable last night. I slept in the nude to air the sores out but just am SO uncomfortable. I'm going to try to knock myself out with Tylenol PM tonight to see if that works better.

I think I'm on Day 4 or 5 of this outbreak and I hope I'm over the worst of it but seriously this anal ob is awful. The sores around my vagina are better now but the ones around my anus are killing me. It sucks it's the weekend so I can't call the doctor's office to get more powerful pain meds - will do stat tomorrow morning. I read online about the Epsom bath salts; will try that tonight to see if it provides any relief. I also heard about using Tuck Pads - anyone try this for temporary relief? Any other effective home remedies and treatments for anal ob people would recommend?

Ice pack...I use them for vaginal OBs they help a lot. If you can sit on one of those gel pack from the freezer...it feels so good. If I have one I wear skirts no knickers and rush home from work to strap an ice pack to my whoha!

Use desitin cream 40% zinc oxide. It will kill the on and give you quick relief.

Many of my OBs are rectal/anal. I tried all of the home remedies but Dynamiclear is what helped me the most.

      I think Dr. Jerome is just being cautious. I've followed what he's done and have 100% confidence in him. Predicting the exact number of years to a cure would be hard, but their last article about HSV makes me think it can't be too far off.

      Did you ever find out if this was herpes or not?

      @GotMeAtLast I doubt the doctor actually told you that, that doesn’t explain why you kept coming here looking for validation.  By your own admission, you have had oral HSV-1 for years. Further you have never swabbed positive from your genital region. Everyone is allowed to form their own conclusions on the basis of that truth. If you wish to conclude you have genital herpes, that’s OK. If I want to conclude you don’t, that’s OK.

      It's been five months since possible exposure and keep having symptoms. I keep experiencing thigh and pelvic pain and thick discharge. Also get shooting pains vaginally and on my butt. I just saw a small white bump inside my labia and next to it is a small open sore. They don't hurt when touched but the rest of my vagina hurts when touched or sitting. Does any of this sound like anyone's ob? I got tested in October but I'm scared I tested too early and now having trouble getting a doctor to retest me
