OB can go away anyday now...


Recommended Posts

After all these years I have finally had the mother of all OB's. This one has lasted over 4 weeks now and I am really getting irritated. The aching in my ass and legs comes and goes. The lesions just won't go away. They are no worse nor any better than day 1 of this OB. I am taking 2g of zovirax a day, yea that's like 5 pills, plus i'm taking 4000 mg of Lysine. I am working out and trying to not just freak out over this. I know everybody's body is different. But somewhere in the back of my mind I'm thinking, "is this gonna go away??"

eventually, i used to stare at my outbreak trying to figure out if the sores were getting smaller, and eventually they did, and smaller and smaller and smaller, then crust. took a hell of a long time.

I want to know the same thing. I was diagnosed in November 2006 and it seems as if I have had an ob since then. I cannot remember a time since then when I did not have some symptom (aching leg, back, neck, base of head, or irritated vagina/anus. I must say I feel mentally better, I just wish my physical would get better.

How many more weeks...

Hi, Support 1,

I have been asking a similar question. I started having symptoms about 5 weeks ago and still itching, tingling, oedema is happening off and on. This is my first ob. I wish I was able to tell you what the norm is for duration of symptoms but I dont think there are any set rules. I would love to know myself. Good luck to you. Hopefully you will have relief soon. Ms.

      So to begin with, I am 26 and have been with the same partner for 8 years. I have only been with three people ever, one completely protected and the other we were both our firsts. I got this rash on my but while pregnant and my doctor said she was testing for it and I'm so confused. I've had two babies, breastfeed, and never had anything as much as a cold sore. Does this look like something anyone has experienced? I used fragrant soap down there and am hoping it's contact dermatitis or a heat rash from sweating and gaining so much weight.  Advice would be helpful. I'm stressing out a bit as I am pregnant.

      Hi, it is me again, apologies for the recent influx of posts. I've noticed a slightly raised area on the middle of my top lip with what i feel are some bumps. i do have a habit of biting my lips a fair bit and this area is frequented by my teeth. I haven't noticed any unusual/abnormal tingling or burning or pain sensations. the photos are a bit difficult to focus on them but do these seem like the start of cold sores? note: I will be visiting the drs for an std checkup in the coming week. https://imgur.com/gallery/YLVA5us

      To give everyone confidence that it wasn’t herpes related and conclude as the doctor did that it was a dermatitis issue to refer back to the dermatologist to continue with investigations.

      Both a dermatologist and infectious disease doctor prescribed him HSV medicine. Why would they do that if this isnt "what herpes really does"?
