OB inside of me

Recommended Posts

Nina E

Hey everybody!!!

what do you do when you have an OB inside??

In november I got a lot of outbreaks so Im now on valtrex, lysine, zinc, kelp... which have taken care of most of them... except for one I have about one or two centimeters inside of me on my left side.. which have been there constantly since november...

I wondering if it is because the wound needs air.. and if so how do I do???

does anyone else have experience with this??

hope that somebody knows -- could be lovely to have sex without pain.

take care everyone :wavey:

Hey Nina,

I am new to this....and thougth I had a ob inside me too. I just started my menstrual for the first time since being diagnosed and when I used a tampon I was HIGHLY irritated! It burned soooooooooooooooooo bad--felt like fire. So since then, I have wore pads and feel much better. I was unsure if you could have ob's inside you or not, but after reading this, I don't feel so alone. I hate to keep calling my doc (swear, I have called her at least twice a week since I was diagnosed on teh 7th) but I may call again and ask about this....

newly diagnosed myself. i was hoping that this wasn't a common thing. My first outbreak last week was only but one small lesion i had mistaken for a razor cut?! I feel like i got on the medication from my doctor quickly and i am already healing. I am about to start my menstrual cycle probably within a week though and this was a VERY big concern I had. I asked my doctor and she said that pads in my instance would have probably been worse for sanitary reasons and that tampons would be the way to go. I never put pain into the equation though. I feel for you

Hey - thanks for replying!

Im actually kind of in chock right now, since I've been checked by another doctor who claims that what I have inside of me is not herpes. She told me that it is a irritation of the skin, I've gotten a creme and the pain is almost gone.

I've been misdiagnosed for three months. -I do have herpes, but the biggest "OB" is not herpes. And I was told by the skin doctor that this was a common mistake, and that I shouldn't wear pads (do to sanitary reasons), and shouldn't eat this and this and this - things I've eaten to prevent herpes.

SO - If you have constant OB, consider to be checked by another doctor....

and 2711: Im sure you are not alone!

Lots of love,

      Amenamevir has a plasma half-life of 8-9 hours (as opposed to 2-3 hours for acyclovir), which means you're actively suppressing the virus for a much longer part of the day. Add to that the non-linear synergy of different mechanisms, and for many this combination could mean full symptom relief. We don't know yet, but it's not impossible. Can't wait for Amanalief to get approval for HSV and come to the US. It's all up to the FDA really. https://accp1.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/cpdd.630

      Doesn't this suck. Using protection and still catching this BS. Uggh, my life story!!

      I think Dr. Jerome is just being cautious. I've followed what he's done and have 100% confidence in him. Predicting the exact number of years to a cure would be hard, but their last article about HSV makes me think it can't be too far off.

      Did you ever find out if this was herpes or not?

      @GotMeAtLast I doubt the doctor actually told you that, that doesn’t explain why you kept coming here looking for validation.  By your own admission, you have had oral HSV-1 for years. Further you have never swabbed positive from your genital region. Everyone is allowed to form their own conclusions on the basis of that truth. If you wish to conclude you have genital herpes, that’s OK. If I want to conclude you don’t, that’s OK.
