Scarring after OB

Recommended Posts


Hi everyone,

I just wanted to see if anyone had had any experience with scarring after genital herpes.

After never experiencing an outbreak, I had (what I am sure) was an OB 2-3 days after a night with a girl who I had been sleeping for around 8 months on and off. I had been going through a real tough time as my Dad had recently passed away, my diet wasn’t great and I was drinking a fair amount. All of that along with sex could have been a trigger right? 

I had experienced one spot on my penis shaft around 6 months before this OB and I went to the clinic and the nurse informed me that she didn’t think it was herpes and ‘it’s so common to have anyway’. However this new OB was different as there was roughly 8-10 tiny blisters.

Firstly I really don’t know who I contracted it off? 

Secondly, I have scarring from where the blisters have popped, which is a constant reminder every time I look down at my penis. Has anyone else experienced scarring? And if so what have they done about it.

I have scarring on one side of my butt. It moved to one side of my butt after about a year of contacting it.
I now have scarring on that side of my butt. I have used Bio-Oil, it helped a little but not enough to hide the scarring.
Where the scarring is, the skin gets dry and is more sensitive now.

I don’t have a raised scar, but the areas where the blisters were the skin is lighter in color.

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
