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!

      I think once my bottle of optimal fulic acid is gone. I am going to switch to shilijit or however you spell it. I think humic acid plays an important role in keeping the hsv at bay. I read one natureopath was using only humic acid tablets to help her patients, but it didnt mention a dose or brand. Except that they slowly amounted to 8 tablets over i think it said almost a year to prevent a bad herx reaction. Can anyone trying the shillijiat chime in on how they have been doing on it? How often they take it and what your reactions have been the first few months?

      That’s it. I’m telling you the truth. I really can’t believe you. I have no reason to pretend to be someone else. I came here to learn and feel like people understood what I’m going through. You have me so upset. I don’t know what an IP address is but I know that admin can tell you I’m telling the truth.  Please, please just leave me alone so I don’t have to leave.

      @WilsoInAus well that picture I just posted look very similar to fordyce spots, but who knows...I get tested soon so perhaps that’ll be the verdict
