Bad scarring after 1st outbreak?

Recommended Posts


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 :/
