Uncircumcised with herpes? *Graphic*

Recommended Posts

RadioLove

I was curious if being un-cut makes out breaks more painful for men? Like, if you get sores under the foreskin and pulling it back irritates the sores? Or if it makes for a longer out break because of the foreskin?

Someone enlighten me?

My father-in-law had herpes and was uncut. He had trouble with outbreaks healing and the doctor recommended him getting circumsized. He did and he was 60 years old! Anyway, the Dr. said that the extra skin kept it moist longer, which helped the blisters to spread and the skin would stick to the oozing sores and make it more painful. Blisters love warm, moist places.

Thanks for the reply, Tandy. :) I was always curious about it. It does make sense though.
