Craziness... do you think this is an ob??


Recommended Posts

Okay... so, it's started to burn when I pee (that was my first symptom with my initial) and it's on fire down there. My 'entrance' itches like there is no tomorrow. Was thinking maybe it was yeast, and treated last night with Monistat 1... but no real relief. What are anyone's thoughts?? This is so damn frustrating! Am just curious if it's possibly the start of a second outbreak already - i just finished the initial a week and a half ago...:(

Good morning Adjusting.......I am sorry to hear about your discomfort. Answer could very likely be YES. Unfortunately. I had my first OB in April 07, took me a good solid 3 months to start to feel "normal" down there again. Never really did, and had my second OB three weeks ago. I am just starting to feel "okay" down there; let alone what the mental aspects of this virus does to me.

If you are new to this virus; I have read that it could take your body up to year to adjust, and fight this, build antibodies, etc. Up your intake of lysine and other vitamins to help speed up the recovery process.

Hope my response helps, there are many others on this site who have great advice also.

My 2nd OB immediately followed my primary OB so it's definitely possible. Given your symptoms it sounds likely.

The only other thing you might watch out for is that sometimes when you pick up H you might also get out of balance in other ways (bacterial vaginosis, urinary tract infection, etc) ... so just pay attn to your symptoms. The crazy itching makes it sound awfully H like... probably a good idea to start OB treatment ASAP.

The best immediate thing to help with the burning and the itch is to take a nice warm bath with Aveeno Active Naturals bath powder for poison oak. You may want to do this often. Don't dry off with a towel where it is tender instead maybe air dry or use a hair dryer on low. I also like to take baths with epsom salts. Another helpful remedy is Domeboro - it is a powder you mix with water and apply with a clean cloth to the sores to help them dry and heal.

Secondly, get to drinking lots of nice fresh water so you can flush your system. Don't go overboard of course but it isn't unusual to drink 5-6 16 oz bottles a day.

Do not use any creams with hydrocortisone. Instead you can try some talcum powder (non perfumed) and dust the area and/or some Summer's Eve anti-itch gel. You want to keep the affected area clean and dry.

Wear some nice comfy cotton panties and otherwise loose garments.

Your dr can prescribe antiviral medication which help to stop and heal up the outbreak and keep new ones away.

      https://imgur.com/a/cVi8yJY 2 weeks ago I had unprotected oral sex. Few days later I wake up with a stinging sensation in my urethra. I don't have any blisters, lesions or redness, my penis looks completely normal from the outside, but the stinging in my urethra is always there. Urinating doesn't make the pain worse. From the research I've done and how my body feels I'm pretty sure I caught genital hsv1. To make matters worse I think I transmitted it to my eyelid by touching my infected penis and then my eyelid which did develop a blister. Can anyone look at my lower eyelid and tell me if it looks anything like herpes?  I forgot to add that the blister is painless, but my eye is a bit watery. Other than that it's fine and my eyesight is good. Considering how this all developed in a matter of a week after I had unprotected sex it can't be much else than herpes..

      Hey I see that they also sell the pill form in 100 mg and 500 mg form. Do you think this is as affective? They have the regular and extract version of the pill. Which would you think is the right one to get? And how many pills per day to get the same effect of say 16 seeds?

      I had an IGG test  and the ranges were out of range and high  HSV 1 was 42 and HSV 2 was 19 so I guess it was accurate but the problem now is I can't figure out when or who I got it from. In 2018 to 2019 when I was with my ex I was STD tested but not sure if herpes was included but my ex was supposed to get tested but refused. I experienced some trauma with him and didn't date until a year and a half later so I'm confused. The guy I dated after the ex who didn't want to be tested I told them a week ago about my results he was trying to be there for me and understanding,I told him to get tested but to request a herpes blood test , because he had no noticeable lesions or bumps ever is what he said and I never noticed any on him now he has shut down all his social media and I can't reach him. Hoping he's okay, I feel bad because in 2018 I did have what I was told it was an abrasion that tingled but at my doctor the day I was tested they told me it wasn't herpes but I think it was only a visible diagnosis. I keep having it reoccur from time to time

      Hello "FeelingLost".... your fears and concerns are understandable but, nothing you've described regarding the sexual encounter would cause you to contract herpes.... further, your symptoms are not herpes related.  Best of all, your doctor is correct, your results don't show any herpes here.  You can relax.... definitely have your GP take a look at things and see what might be causing the symptoms but, again, none of them are typical herpes related.  I wish you the best in terms of talking to your wife about this encounter.... hopefully she will understand and you both can work through this amicably.  We all make mistakes.... be careful not to beat yourself up too hard over this.... you can become so racked with guilt that you start imagining physical symptoms.  Best of luck.... and take care..... come back to the site if you have questions.
