Is there any kind of ointment to put on genital sores to make them go away faster? Similar to how Abreva works on cold sores? Please let me know! Thank you!

I use bee propolis (salve/ointment) and zinc oxide creams (like Desitin). They help soothe and heal.

The most consistent thing for me for itching and stinging is just washing with soap and water, rinsing well, dry.  If u use a sponge you can give the area a thorough, lathery wash without rubbing.  Of course, many times it only usually lasts a few hours, and then u have to do it again.

Hi @HopefulGirl04. Topical application with lemon balm (melissa officinalis) has shown benefit.  You can find many pre-made creams/salves or you could put one together yourself.

dynamilcear is the best .. use that . tea tre oil works but i wouldn't putt on skin .  bio 30 is propels form tea tree oil works on internal symptoms .  but dynamiclear ..  does everything.  one best things . kills symptoms . stops out breaks . skin still breath .  .  you can use it to treat skin that has no symptoms no outbreak.  if it odnt work on the skin in 3 hours try again to hit the spot . . vs out break one treatment is all or it don't work .  after one treatment a dab  you hold off couple days or three then try agin .  for external topical treatment .

Lemon balm helps when there's an itch/bump (early stages) and tea tree oil helps for openings

My first outbreak was so long and miserable that I broke down and bought some Lysine lip ointment for lip cold sores. I used that on my genital breakout. It seemed to help! I eventually bought a small pot of it on Amazon which is a little more cost effective. I also use gold bond powder on my outbreaks as well and it is soothing.


Another thing that helps me is cleansing with black african soap. It seems to have healing and soothing properties.  I've only had two outbreaks and used it toward the middle/end and it seemed to speed up the healing a lot. I'm not sure if it was a coincidence or what. I am journaling my outbreaks and what I'm using to help me remember what  has helped in the past.

      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.
