How can I stop the itching?


Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed two weeks ago and had symptoms for a week before that. I saw the Dr. last week and she said the internal sores were healed. I don't see any more on the outside either. But the itching just keeps getting worse. It's absolutely unbearable, and no cream I've used seems to help. I know some suggest a bath but I don't have a bathtub. Any other ideas?

I use an ice pack, the gel ones you keep in the freezer wrapped in a face cloth. It soothes and distracts me from the itching for a bit. Maybe it will help you get at least a little bit of relief. I've never had them inside though...thats awful...I hope it clears up quickly.

I just had a thought perhaps the herpes has upset all the happy, good bacteria...natural yoghurt works for thrush and really helps the itch. I doubt it would do anything bad...and if it is super itchy any thing for bit of relief, eh!

      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?
