I hear many women say lysine cream offers them relief from their pain and itchiness.  Also taking a bath in epsom salts also offers temporary relief for many.

You can find lysine cream online or at most pharmacies in their cold sore section.

Good luck!

I use coconut oil, you can find this in pharmacy next to lotions, and most times add some tea tree oil, I found this in walmart, to it. This gives me such relief.  I use aloe gel once in a while, not when I have sore when I have tingling ...

thankyou @LillianPanos even i use aloe vera gel but it only helps with tingling. i haven't used tea tree oil yet but surely give it a chance because i have quite heard about it.

My three go to home remedies are: tea tree oil, Apple cidar vinegar, and coconut oil. When I feel as if I'm getting itchy or tingling I use a dab of tea tree oil on my genitals and it helps the ob not spread as much (well at least for me everyone is different) I also wash myself with diluted apple cidar vinegar and a tablespoon of the coconut oil in like a small round container.

Does tingling always result in an outbreak? I have never had an outbreak but have experienced tingling...that i thought was just my lady parts falling asleep from being in a position to long lol i just got diagnosed a few days ago...

For me it does, it let's me know a head a time to start applying the tea tree oil and do the washed with apple cidar vinegar and coconut oil. I would say I can start feeling the tingle and within the next two days I'll get a bump. But those remedies help with the lesions healing.

For some people they only  get tingling and no outbreaks some people seem to get what they say is nerve pain from having herpes.  Sam get really crazy itching

but the best is if you get that tingling just watch what you eat and try not to stress so that it doesn't turn into an outbreak.   I have to laugh at you saying that your lady bits fall asleep I've never actually thought of that ever

      Ive have GHSV1 for two years and have not experienced an OB since my first initial one.. except for now i think. I was very stressed and worrisome, which caused me to get itchy down there, and now everytime i wipe i feel like there are blisters, but when i look there are none! im so confused and not sure if its just my mind trying to trick me, but i can sometimes feel them when i am sitting down, it feels like pins and needles.. has anyone else experienced this?? i dont know what to do! im trying to not think about it and 'think' my way out of this outbreak

      I was diagnosed almost a year ago and have always struggled to find an outlet or any support. I stumbled upon this site when researching a new rash. I’ve constantly struggled with dealing with my herpes, especially since I got it due to being raped.
      I hope to be able to talk to some people with similar experiences and problems. I have HSV1 in the genital region. Does anybody else deal with that as well?

      So I was diagnosed with ghsv-1 about a month ago. I have been having problems with the lymph nodes in my neck. My outbreak on my genitals have cleared up so I am unsure why my lymph nodes are still in pain. Can I also have oral hsv-1? What should I do?

      So I am new to the herpes world. I was diagnosed with ghsv-1 on May 17th. I was dating two guys at once (one I was sexually active with and someone else). The last person I had sex with, I am pretty sure he’s the one that gave it to me. I did disclose to all of my sex partners using text free because I was too embarrassed to reveal myself. But anyway, today I disclosed to the other guy I was seeing when I found out that I was gHSV-1 positive. We have been seeing one another one to two time a week and have planned basically our whole summer out. Even though he wanted to take it slow we are most definitely sexually attracted to one another and planned on having sex somewhere along the lines. This morning I decided to disclose via text that I have ghsv-1. I gave him some fact/transmission rates and have left everything in his hands. He’s currently at work and asked if it’ll be okay for him to call me when he gets off. Let’s see how this turns out. I am prepared for the worst, but hoping for the best. I will keep you guys posted.

      Medical knowledge in the 50s doubled every 50 years. But guess how fast the knowledge is doubling now? 1 year. Cures are coming. This is why there is a worldwide debate on healthcare. Some want to own your health others want the cures for free. You being desperate will trample on the next person to get it whereas someone else will hope the cure is free for all.  The fight isn't for a cure anymore it's for who owns the cure. The people or the elite. With medical knowledge doubling every year and soon every 6 months with the assistance of AI a cure will be ready by 2025.  Finally the west has competition who wants to be the world's leader; China. They want to cure diseases because they want rid of capitalism and religion. May the winner have it all.

      This isn't some 1940s crime detective novel mate! We don't have process of elimination, we have active diagnosis. But to hell with that. You do not have to prove anything to doctors. They're just a bunch of clowns with meaningless tests! You're the man, you make the decisions. Whether you think you have herpes, or whether you think you don't, you're right. Be a man, be confident, if you have HSV-2 then own up to it. Stop camping around at doctors offices. Stride right back to that girl in your loosest jocks with lots of stretch room for those swollen gonads. Slam open the bedroom door and announce you're here to show her what a night with real man feels like, minus Trojans!

      To answer your question, I have been living with pain and burning in my penis for a year now.  My symptoms started within 48 hours of attempted sex with someone who has HSV2. Doctors can’t figure it out.  I’m 90% certain HSV2 is the culprit.  All my issues started directly after the exposure.  Itching, tingling, constipation, nerve burning, testicle pain and back pain. And they all come and go. I only got a large bump in my pubic area days after the exposure.  A large amount of people with herpes don’t get typical looking lesions, so you can’t base it on that.   Hopefully you find your answer.  I pretty much have mine but have to prove it to my doctors by way of elimination.

      OMG if I had only known that 5 years ago... doctors have no clue of this.
