Is this an outbreak or just a shaving nic?

Recommended Posts

I shaved down there like 3 days ago, and yesterday I looked there and it looked like a small red cut that possibly irritated due to shaving, but today I felt kind of uncomfortable down there like kind I cut myself shaving down there, and now it just looks like 1 little spot, i'm wondering if that is a herpes cut or is it because of shaving? I put some oil of oregano and feels better I had the first primary outbreak around January 11, but I felt no discomfort down there up until I nicked myself shaving down there. Please what do you guys think? Should I worry? I don't want this to be a herpes cut, shaving cut is what I want :(

It's absolutely possible that you cut yourself shaving, but there is no way to know for sure until you get tested-either a swab or blood culture by your doctor. Only a medical professional can tell you for sure-but don't stress yourself out too much! There are plenty of other conditions, such as a cut shaving, that could be the cause. Good luck!

      There’s new treatment available for cmv and shingles but nothing yet for hsv. It’s like a slap in the face!

      Any ladies out there suffered with this? There seems to be little information about it on the net. Thanks in advance.

      Rejection will be there during your whole life. But not because of herpes, also because of how you are, at work, at your private life. It's just a part of life! Just have in mind that if people reject you because of stupid little things like herpes, they are not even worth continuing as a part of your life.  I think the best way of fighting the stigma is to be 100% convinced that there is NO NEED to feel ashamed, bad, disgusting because of herpes. I one day understood some very important thing: I did NOTHING differently than my friends who don't have herpes. I had sex (they did), sometimes with protection (they did), sometimes without (they did). I had ONS (they did), I had long term relationships (they did), I received wonderful and less wonderful oral sex, haha (they did). The only difference is that I got genital herpes from someone who didn't even know. So why exactly should I feel disgusting or bad?  And also: Know the facts. That is the safest way to destroy stigma in my opinion. If someone tells you: "Yuck! Herpes is disgusting!" you can answer: "I don't think that 80 % of the world population are disgusting because they have a virus in their bodies."  I also recommend this video from "Laureen". She has really great videos about herpes!

      Thanks for the comments. Looks like the only think that might have a shot at helping us in the future is the drug Pritlevir then.

      @PeaceNeeded no there is zero relationship between penile spines and HSV-2, no such variant is possible.
