Newly Diagnosed - Chafing?

Recommended Posts

Reverse

Hi there, 

I was diagnosed a couple of weeks ago and I've been dealing with it fine had the anti viral and its starting to get better, just wondered if anyone else has experienced chafing after an outbreak or whether this could be another outbreak starting. I'm not quite sure what it is to be honest but I've got a lot of redness and soreness down there but most of the blisters have healed or are nearly healed. Going to give it the weekend then go to the GP but thought I'd check on here first

Yes,  my scrotum was very uncomfortable after the first two OBs.  It was beyond irritating when my underwear would rub up against it. I used talcum powder with zinc oxide for the friction and I haven't had any issues since. The Derm said that it could have been since it was my first few OBs that the whole area was hyper sensitive.  I don't even use the talcum powder everyday anymore.

      Do you shop at Amazon.com? Next time you shop, you can also automatically donate a portion of the proceeds to the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society.  This Society organizes the symposium on latency of herpes viruses.  It was here that Keith Jerome announced that he had edited almost 20%-30% of latent HSV in mice last year. (http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/departments/neurology/CALS/Documents/2018 CALS abstracts.pdf) You have to go through smile.amazon.com to set up ongoing donations whenever you shop through smile.amazon.com. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society. Why is there a separate URL? The AmazonSmile program offers customers a new benefit, making a donation to your favorite charity. We're able to provide this benefit to you when you choose to start your shopping at smile.amazon.com in part because we expect AmazonSmile to grow primarily through word of mouth instead of paid advertising—and this enables us to fund donations to our customers’ favorite organizations.

      WOW, it's true.  So cool!  Thanks for sharing. In my view, for the time being, we can just help support the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society, rather than asking Fred Hutch to set something up through Amazon.   Here is an important message though, you have to go through smile.amazon.com to do the donation.
