She has an outbreak

I just found out that my fiance has HPV. She has a very small outbreak. I don't know if I have it yet, but she is my best friend and I want be with her forever regardless. The doctor gave her a cream that is supposed to take 4-6 weeks to get rid of the bump. My question is, should we wait to have unprotected sex until the bump is gone? I am comfortable with the fact that I will someday have HPV also (if I don't already) but I don't want to increase the chances of either her or I having more outbreaks in the near future by having unprotected sex. Does sex during outbreaks increase any other risks besides transmission?

A condom provides near 0% effectivness when you have sex with a female that is currently shedding the virus (herpes).... Because the virus is spread SKIN TO SKIN, once your genitals touch her's there's a good chance that you'll be infected...

Yes you should always wait until the bump is gone. Not just gone but no redness - none.

Trust me you do not want this if you don't have it. It is probably easier if only one of you has it. Then you can not have sex when she has an episode. If you both have it then you really shouldn't have sex when either of you has it.

And it is true condoms aren't very effective unless the outbreak is completely covered by the condom and for a woman this is probably impossible.

      Hey @Zrozpaczona9 that looks like folliculitis to me, that’s independent of the question of herpes. The doctor is wrong in the sense that a negative IgG test is beyond reasonable doubt that you do not have herpes. It is a small percentage of people for which a false negative occurs. The doctor is right to take a swab to increase your confidence that there’s no herpes present. I’m sure you’ll have your result soon.

      Hey @WilsoInAus miałam dzisiaj wizytę u dermatologa, gdyż dostałam zmian w pachwinie, w trakcie wakacji nad morzem. Udałam sie tam ze zmianami w postaci strupów. Powiedział ze nie można wykluczyć opryszczki mimo negatywnego wyniku Hsv igg i zalecił wymaz z pochwy na Hsv i inne choroby. Wytłumaczyłam mu że zmiany zamieniają się w strup, ale nie ma w nich płynu, więc zalecił badanie śluzu pochwy na hsv PCR, zastanawiam się czy ma to sens, i czy wirusa można wykryć na podstawie tego badania w wydzielin z szyjki macicy. Z góry dziekuje za pomoc

      In this forum we will discuss does lume work Lume is paraben-free and uses several natural ingredients like Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, tapioca starch, and Maranta arundinacea root powder (also known as arrowroot powder) to control odor and sweat. One of the key Lume deodorant ingredients is mandelic acid, an AHA found in skin care products, which also has an antibacterial effect.

      Ibuprofen medicine is a painkiller. Can you take ibuprofen on an empty stomach  Some people take medicine empty stomach which is not good for our health. Because painkiller kind of medicine is very strong and can harm your liver. Medicine makes many strong ingredients. like Lactose, corn starch, hypromellose, sodium starch glycolate, colloidal anhydrous silica, magnesium stearate, sucrose, talc, titanium dioxide (E171), and carnauba wax.

      Never had a history of Oral cold sores before, but have dated someone with them.  Thats very interesting about the test. This was my first full panel.  The large bumps have recently show up, its been about a few weeks when I noticed them. Again no pain nor fluids from them.
