Hang in there. I know it doesn't feel like it, but it will get better soon. My initial ob was horrendous. I couldn't pee without wanting to be put out of my misery. If you lean over the toilet facing the back of the toilet and cover the vagina with your hand,  you can try to get the stream from touching sores. I also peed in a warm bath and used warm water and ran it over as I peed. 

The only thing that helped me for pain was: icing the vagina, taking Tylenol, and sitting in warm baths (Epsom salts would be beneficial). I would also wet a cloth with warm water and dab it over all the sores (frequently) especially after going to the bathroom. That caused a lot of relief. Keeping them clean is essential. Don't use soap to clean unless you're showering and keep it to the outside of your vagina.

I took 500 mg twice a day to help get rid of the OB. Apply Vaseline, diaper rash cream, or aloe to the sores to help heal them once they pop. I guess antiviral cream will help too.

My OB (pain wise) lasted about 7-10 days. You're half way there!

Youll feel like a brand new woman once the pain stops!

My first OB was last about 2 weeks. I had a severe one too. I took Valtrex, paracetamol and Lysine. In the beginning the doctor prescribed another type of anti viral but it did not work and I went back so he gave me Valtrex and it worked well. You should see the improvement by week 2 but I think its difeerent but similar for each person. Hang in there, you ll be ok

Update! I just visited the doctor, on my smear test there is nothing written about herpes but doctor says I am ! Now we changed the MG of the pills; now I will get Valtrex 1000 MG Per day + 750 MG antibiotics + Anestol cream (to help toilet part) + Furacin cream 

I hope it will pass in a week..

      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.
