Question about epsom salt baths

4 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I'm in the middle of my first ob, and it's quite horrific, as we all know. I have so many sores on my lower regions that they stick to eachother and reopen every time I move, thus preventing any kind of drying. I've read that taking a bath with epsom salt can help with the pain and help to dry the sores. However, I am wary of putting anything related to salt on open wounds. Does anyone have experience with this method during this stage of the ob? Thanks.

I tried it

Hi,

I had heard that epsom salt baths could help the sores heal faster, so I took my first epsom sald bath tonight. It was incredibly painful, but I'm not sure if it was the salt that hurt, or the soap, or even the water I rinsed with (from the tap, no salt). I'm not even diagnosed yet, but I'm convinced that I have this disease, so I'm looking for ways to treat it in conjunction with suppressive therapy. There has got to be something that we can put on these lesions to reduce the pain! I'll let you know if the epsom salt bath helps any. Mostly it just hurt bad enough that I almost passed out.

my help

I've been dealing with this now for 8 months..I've tried many many things so perhaps my excperiences can help you. For topicals..i've tried

many..(hbalm/ Peroxcide/Tree tea oil/ Chorofor..etc..)...the one and only thing that has helped me so far is 1 thing.I've been on acyclovir suppressivly and was still getting constant ob's. I was really getting to the end of the rope.... I exercise..eat healthy..take all sorts vitimins/supplements etc.. I had ordered some red marine algae supplements (after reading about other peoples good experiences on internet) and when I did they also had an red marine algae ointment..which i thought what the hell..I'll order that too at the same time.Well..as for the red alga supplements ..I'm not really sure if they helped me in any way ....but the ointment!!! It's been a godsend. Within 24 hrs my ob was basically gone!!! It helped tremendously with the itching/pain...that was gone in a few hours. How I wished I had known about this stuff when i had my initial ob or recurrent ones after. So far the only downside has been after applying it(I had been getting obs always on same area..my scrotum :( .... ) I have gotten an ob at the base of my tailbone...somewhere I've never had an ob before.From what I can see the virus does not like this ointment at all...so since it does not like the treated area..it found another spot :( at least at the base of my tailbone it is far less discomfort than on the scrotum!!!!! I've started putting ointment on tailbone area. Anyways...I have found this the most helpful to me as a topical by FAR!!! If you do try it...post your results...I'm curious if it was just me...or it works as well for others.I know others have had great success with hbalm...but it did not help me at all...I guess sometimes diffrent things work bette rfor others.The stuff was called rma healing ointment...I beleive it is made my Vibrant Health..but I did not order it from thier site...you can find it cheaper from other sites..just do a google. If you read thier site about it..they claim it has some antiviral properties...anyways...sorry for the long post...hope this helps...and I hope things get better for you soon..i know what it's like..i've been there

Thanks

thanks so much for your reply and the information! I'll be looking for the red marine algae ointment as soon as I get off work today! That's another thing I'm dreading, first day back at work with these damn lesions. Anyway, I'll let you know if it helps!
