Bad scarrng after 1st outbreak?

Recommended Posts

Alex123

I was diagnosed in Jan and because I had never been exposed to hsv1 or 2 before, my outbreak was pretty bad. It's been over a month and usually people say the skin goes back to normal but mine hasn't. The area is smooth but the area of the outbreak is splotchy speckle skin that's wayyy lighter than the skin around it. It's very noticeable and all over my lower buttock/middle of my leg area. Will this go away? Does anyone have recommendations on scarring? I'm so self concious that future partners will see these very visable scars and will be turned off by it or scared of the virus since they would see physical evidence if it on my body :/

Have a similar problem after first oral outbreak. Also been over a month now and still have a red mark where the blister was. I’ve been putting vitamin e on it and it does seem to help although I suppose science seems to disagree about vitamin e benefits now. I put Mederma on it but it made my lip tingle and it scared me so i quit using it, seems everything I’ve put on this damn thing has made it worse! Hope someone has good insight for us here.

I get the light scarring once my OB has healed too. My last OB was bad so the scar was bigger much more noticable. I rubbed aloe gel from the leaf on it then once that dried I massaged in Shea butter that I mixed with jojoba oil and a little vitamin e oil. Did this twice a day or more when I could. After a nasty two week OB it took an additional 10 days for the skin to look back to normal.

      (For my case: i am not diagnosed herpes. I had genital warts. 
      I can tell her a sex partner was diagnosed with HPV, and i pretty surely have it and that's why i do it with boxer short the next months. Hm.)   https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf https://www.cdc.gov/std/herpes/stdfact-herpes-detailed.htm

      How long after diagnosis did you start to have sex again? How did he get it on the lips?

      Hi,  I was wondering if you could describe your outbreaks or how much time it passed before you where correctly diagnosed. Or your overall experience. I am freaking out and just wearing my underwear feels uncomfortable.  How did they diagnosed you? Thank you in advanced

      I THINK this will benefit us. If the FDA allows more aggressive research in the deadliest virus programs, such as HIV gene editing, then off-targeting and other safety issues might already be solved before Dr. Jerome  starts editing hsv in humans.
