Second OB, no meds.

Recommended Posts

Has anyone found any home remedies that might make an outbreak go away a little quicker, or even something to find relief from it? Lack of health insurance can be a pain in the butt, and I make just over the limit to go to the free clinic otherwise that's where I'd be headed. Any advice would be MUCH appreciated.

bunn,

check out the topics on the right!>>>>>>> they will advise you on home remedies. as for myself, I cleanse the sores with alcohol or purell with aloe...burns like hell, but seems to make it heal faster. epsom salts baths help as well, but they will dry out the skin not in ob mode, so get plenty of lotion for your other parts...I dont have health insurance,.

but can deal with paying for the otc stuff...hope this helps

After I urinate, I dab the affected area with one of those wet wipes. It helps to keep the area clean and free from any excess bacteria. It seems to reduce the severity and the time to heal.

That sounds like a good idea, great except when it hurts to the touch. Which is where I'm at right now.....lame. I'll remember that though :D Thank you!

there's also something called fast results you can get at a cvs or rite aid.. i think it's $30.. I never used it as I have not had a second ob yet, but am prepared to try that when and if (fingers crossed) it happens. It's in the aisle with the preg test, condoms, etc.

Hmmm that is definitely something I'll have to keep on hand if it works. I really appreciate the advice...and I'll keep you updated on whether or not it does for me. :)

      Yes and I have received quite a number of complaints about you too... people wondering why you haven’t been banned for such flagrant lying. Anyways, it matters not. Readers can see what is the truth, and truth is all that matters.

      @WilsoInAus talking to you is like talking to the wall, follow your path and do not give importance to my comments and received complaints from other users of how you judge who has problems with the community of hsv are you, doctors are too wrong do not know everything and you who have no medical and academic training will judge a doctor who with a blood test and a culture diagnosed me with hsv-1 (I'll tell you a phrase that a doctor told me you're not going to judge my diagnoses that's why I I left the mother 8 years studying) _______________________ hablar contigo es como hablar con la pared siga su camino y no le dé importancia a mis comentarios e recibido quejas tuyas de otros usuarios de como los juzgas el que tiene problemas con la comunidad de hsv eres tú, los médicos se equivocan demasiado no lo saben todo y tu que no tienes ninguna formación médica y académica va a juzgar un médico que con un examen de sangre y un cultivo me diagnostico hsv-1 ( te diré una frase que un médico me dijo tu no vas a juzgar mis diagnósticos por eso me partí la madre 8 años estudiando)

      No I’m sorry that is not the case. You have lied and deceived to feed your own paranoia. That is unacceptable behaviour anywhere, particularly this behaviour. Our readers understand perfectly. It’s time to reflect upon this atrocious behaviour. Please comeback when you’re prepared to be mature. I’m sorry no one has been able to help you overcome your psychological problems regarding herpes.

      lo que tú no entiendes es que no todos tienen los mismos síntomas y los mismos brotes hay gente que no tiene síntomas y sabe brotes recurrentes mucha gente tiene síntomas sin brotes visibles heno asintomáticos y sintomáticos muchos doctores confunden un brote de hsv a una espinilla (acné ) y viceversa _______________________ @WilsoInAus what you do not understand is that not everyone has the same symptoms or the same outbreaks there are people who do not have symptoms and get recurring outbreaks many people have symptoms without visible outbreaks there are asymptomatic and symptomatic many doctors confuse an outbreak of hsv to a pimple (acne) ) and vice versa

      @WilsoInAus estas muy mal, mi  diagnostico de hsv fue sólo por escuchar mis síntomas sin pruebas de sangre eso fue a los 20 días la prueba de sangre fue casi al cumplir un mes además todos las personas son diferentes el hsv no dura mucho en infectar células epiteliales en muchos casos a los 15 días de la infección ya puedes obtener anticuerpos hay gente que dura meses hay gente que dura menos de un mes porque tiene que ser igual para todos? _____________________ you are very bad, my diagnosis of hsv was just by hearing my symptoms without blood tests that was 20 days after the blood test was almost one month later all the people are different the hsv does not last long in infecting epithelial cells in many cases after 15 days of infection and you can get antibodies there are people who last for months there are people who last less than a month because it has to be the same for everyone?
