Nighttime itching

Recommended Posts

trying2staypositive

I was diagnosed (genital) in Oct 10 and have had 2 OB. Every single night I have this uncontrollable itching without any other symptoms of an OB. Is this normal? Or what is going on?

My first OB was like that with a lot of itching but there were 2 small bumps as well that eventually turned into a blister or open sore. That is when I was diagnosed.

The second OB was one small bump in a slightly different area and it went away as soon as I started meds.

It is not the type associated with yeast infection or any other as it is on the outside of vagina. It seems to be located at the two sites of OB though so it obviously is connected with HSV.

Still the itching continues...any incite would be appreciated. :confused:

Try jock itch spray. I know it is meant for fungal infections, but for some reason it really helps to ease my night time itching.

I've had the itching alot since I was dx in November 2009 and I've tried everything under sun and nothing has helped me. I've tried aloe vera, baby powder, lidocane, lanacane, eucerin calming creme, eczema cremes. You name it I've tried it and it is alot worse at night oddly enough. Also that is when you can't control yourself as easily and I find myself waking up itching like mad. I sometimes think about wearing gloves to bed or taping my hands together (lol) If you find something that works please let me know.

I too have had this with my outbreaks. Right before bed I get into the bath, soak and let the water run on it it. Then sleep with no undergarments etc... It helps me somewhat.

I have tried sleeping with not panties on but I can't seem so sleep without pants on because I get too cold now that it's winter. I have found that it does help though even without the underwear.

Thanks everyone. Do you think that it is a continuous outbreak where the Acyclovir is not working 100%?

Idunoknow...I actually just wear underwear with a panty liner and some type of bottoms so that if I itch in my sleep (usually do) i won't transfer it anywhere else. So that I am itching on the outside of the clothing. I am pretty nervous about that since i find myself itching my eyes or face sometimes.

I know I am stressed a lot right now and maybe that is the reason there is so much itching as if an OB is trying to come thru????

Trying to reduce the stress but there are many extremely stressful events going on in my life that will take time to heal aside from HSV. HSV is just the icing on the cake unfortunately. SUCKS!

xAwke because of itching! First night it is this bad. Does that mean it is healing or that a new ob is starting. This is my first ob.

My gynecologist recommended Desitin.....yes it is for diaper rash, but it seems to bring relief. And pretty cheap too.

      Him holding my hips, grabbing ass, then grabbing his cock is what I worry about. I also worry about shedding anywhere from the boxer shorts area and that's a mighty big area. It is the unknown. It would be nice to cover the entire area and then I just don't have to worry! Then the part that is exposed which  would be a very small spot. Maybe cover with that liquid glove?!? I just like the idea of doing my best

      I wouldn’t because that would be outing myself as well unfortunately. It just sucks because our mutual friends have no clue why I carry such resentment towards him, and wonder why they can’t even bring up his name around me anymore. Im sure they think I’m a crazy jealous person who is hurt things didn’t work out or that I’m being dramatic for no reason. I can’t explain to or confide in anyone but the users on this forum.

      Girl! I am actually on the same exact position. My new bf gave it to me and he put the blame on me! When he was my 2nd partner and I hadn’t had sex in 5 years (last guy was a virgin). I know that alone feeling but know you’re not alone. I just got diagnosed 2 weeks ago too. It’s crazy you see yourself differently but I promise no one around you does.

      How would that location (upper crack) come in contact with him during doggy style sex? Maybe after the act if he fell on top of you while you're face down. I would suggest simply observing whether there are sores in these areas that are somewhat removed from the genital area. If there are no sores than the odds of you transferring to him such as the lower stomach or leg etc.., are pretty damn low. Obviously, we can come always come up with a scenario where you could transmit. For example, if you were on your stomach and he was sliding his dick up and down your butt crack and you had sores there, then yes, he could get infected. If you were just shedding there it would be less likely but possible. But try doing that with your clothes on. I don't think that would work out very well; Do you?  Wearing clothes during sex like that woman you portrayed in your earlier comment is sexy. But that's all together different.
