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.

      Thank you Slkxx. I want to talk to someone I trust but I am so afraid if I tell my best friend she will tell her husband, which is understandable. I completely trust her to not judge me but if her husband finds out his best friend is an ex of mine and I just don't want this to get around our group of friends. I have been lucky in the fact that the guy who gave it to me has been there for me but it isn't the same. Confiding in him is just making his own struggle more difficult as he feels terrible for what happened but he did not have any bad intentions. As it turns out finding out led to answering a lot of questions he has had about other health issues he had. So in a weird way this happening may actually help him in the long run with giving him an avenue for treatment. I don't want to pile onto his issues even though he has caused mine because at the end of the day he is a good guy who had no idea what was happening. I'm so glad you were able to talk to your friend and I truly hope the suicidal thoughts become a thing of your past. I am here if you need another ear.

      Various reasons are possible, including: genetics, immune system, triggers (e.g. stress), lack of nutrition/exercise, bad luck, etc. No one person has the exact same experience.  Have you tried antivirals?
