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.

      Your symptoms and photos match exactly what I've been dealing with on and off since October 2018 after I had a a really bad flu that brought about tingling on my lips.  I eventually tested positive fro HSV1 months later, but I don't know where on my body it is.

      @CheekyMunkey there is absolutely no way you, me or anyone has any chance of diagnosing what issues inside the mouth might be. There are simply too many issues that create similar looking outcomes. All I can say is that issues inside the mouth are way, way less likely to be related to herpes compared to if you were having issues on the lips.

      Hi mate.  Thank you for responding. I do feel better but I think the oral might be the issue. I was looking at my tongue and it looks white. Well whiter than normal. Also about 3 days ago I had a really sharp pain in my tongue which lasted like seconds. Later in the day when I saw it it had like a line cut into it. Is it a lesion? I have no pain in my tongue at all, no fluid filled sores but I noticed that Its shape isn't right. Like a bits missing on the tip of the right hand side. I've added two pics. It looks whiter in the pics then it actually is but I noticed red dots all down near the tip. Could that be something? Herpes? Also, where the tongue goes out of shape there is nothing on that side. I did burn my mouth on some pizza on the day I felt that sharp pain so not sure if that's got something to do with it.  https://ibb.co/zhphnMD https://ibb.co/G0pPRLh Thanks in advance.

      Personally, I'm still wondering how likely is it China will cure HSV before the States does ?...
