Can cutting youself while shaving turn into an OB?

Recommended Posts


I had my first OB in november, and I was miserable! It was really, really painful. As I am new to this, I don't know if this sounds illogical, but here it is:

About a week ago, I cut myself down there while shaving. It started out as a regular cut, and I figured it would heal in a couple of days as always. It hasn't. Instead it is now yellowish. I am not able to see whether it is a bump or not, but it is not at all in the same spot as my first.

I am also in the first days of my period, and I was told that the difference in hormones etc. could trigger an OB at that time.

Could this be an OB? I have meds lying around, I just don't wanna take them if I don't need to.


Oh, and administrators are welcome to move this thread if I put it the wrong place ;-)

Cuts themselves don't "cause" outbreaks. I have read that many women have their periods as an outbreak trigger.

Have you noticed any swelling or redness around the cut? Has it gotten more painful? If so, I'd be a bit worried about infection if the cut has turned to a yellowish color. Good luck!

      You’re on the right track for sure. Did you get a swab of the lesions? Have you had an IgG blood retest for HSV?

      I would like to hear from those who have genital hsv 1... I’m thinking that I have type 1 because the guy I believe gave it to me had cold sores.. or is this assumption wrong? What’s the chances of having type 2 from his cold sores?

      I am very sorry that you are feeling the way you do at this time.  I went through the full range of feelings and emotions you describe for more than 10X as long as you have (that's right over 30 years) .  I have no idea if what I am going to tell you will be of benefit but I have no doubt what soever that HSV2 has been eliminated from my life.    This happened several months ago.  How?  Through SCALAR ENERGY.  It is still hard for me believe at times that I am now free of it, but it's true. If you want to know more you should go to the website and read it all.  creativestrength.us  I have absolutely no connection to the good people at this site other than I am now totally well from the treatment (not expensive) and am telling my story in the hopes that the same will happen to them.
