Gold Bond!


Recommended Posts

I just used Gold Bond on my outbreak, and it feels awesome and dry.

The powder is "medicated" for itch relief, dries out the area and has a nice, cool "mentholyptis" feel to it...

I am sure I am not the only one to try this stuff...I used it for jock itch some time back and it was great for that too!

I'm excited here...this stuff may be my new ticket to more comfortable outbreaks!

hey did you get any long term affects? did it burn at all? I am always afraid something will burn. I used baby powder once that was nice but i have all black pants and the powder came through! lol

Hmmm, gold bond has some kind of cooling ointment in it, so if you put it on sensitive skin it can either feel "hot" or "cool" when the powder first hits the OB, but that goes away after a minute.

I have had this clear "weeping" of the skin where it breaks and then causes the OB to stick to my underwear. It sucks to have to peel cloth away from your OB whenever you move around.

The gold bond seems to be a great answer to it...I suggest getting a small bottle and trying it out!

Regardless of the herpes, gold bond feels AWESOME, haha :cool:

I also used it back in the day for jock itch...its very hygenic and keeps you clean all day long.

I always feel slight discomfort, I don't think its a breakout, I ride and get irritated from riding alot so it's a mix between the two- but I'm definatly gonan have to try it!

On my very first OB. (before I even knew what I had) I found Gold Bond to be the only thing that really helped and I told my doctor this but she told me to not use the powder but insted to use the lotion because the powder has steriods in it and might cause a infection to spred.

Two thoughts come to mind now one is at the time no one knew yet what I had or at least wasnt telling me and the second since it is herpies we all are dealing with and we are told to keep ourselves as dry as possible wouldnt Gold Bond powder be a good thing then?

ive had a persistent outbreak going on over a month. normally i leave it alone, let it scab then scar up before it completely heals in about two weeks. this one is going forwver cuz my dr gave me some cream to use on. everything online says to keep dry. trying it out on a dime aized outbreak in corner of my mouth. i rubbed with 90% alcohol, then iodine then applied name brand gold bond and it turned green lol from the iodine. anyways hopefully ill have noticeable reaults by morning. its been gummy for about 3weeks. never using cream again. just goes to show you how everything is controlled by big pharma. ill give results in morning

      I had an IGG test  and the ranges were out of range and high  HSV 1 was 42 and HSV 2 was 19 so I guess it was accurate but the problem now is I can't figure out when or who I got it from. In 2018 to 2019 when I was with my ex I was STD tested but not sure if herpes was included but my ex was supposed to get tested but refused. I experienced some trauma with him and didn't date until a year and a half later so I'm confused. The guy I dated after the ex who didn't want to be tested I told them a week ago about my results he was trying to be there for me and understanding,I told him to get tested but to request a herpes blood test , because he had no noticeable lesions or bumps ever is what he said and I never noticed any on him now he has shut down all his social media and I can't reach him. Hoping he's okay, I feel bad because in 2018 I did have what I was told it was an abrasion that tingled but at my doctor the day I was tested they told me it wasn't herpes but I think it was only a visible diagnosis. I keep having it reoccur from time to time

      Hello "FeelingLost".... your fears and concerns are understandable but, nothing you've described regarding the sexual encounter would cause you to contract herpes.... further, your symptoms are not herpes related.  Best of all, your doctor is correct, your results don't show any herpes here.  You can relax.... definitely have your GP take a look at things and see what might be causing the symptoms but, again, none of them are typical herpes related.  I wish you the best in terms of talking to your wife about this encounter.... hopefully she will understand and you both can work through this amicably.  We all make mistakes.... be careful not to beat yourself up too hard over this.... you can become so racked with guilt that you start imagining physical symptoms.  Best of luck.... and take care..... come back to the site if you have questions.

      Hi (I’m really scared and feel really disappointed in myself and worried about my future), I had oral sex with a condom almost 3 weeks ago and a massage parlor. I also received a hand job at the same time prior to putting a condom on, also may have rubbed my penis on her back a little. Did not touch her genitals I don’t recall any sores on her back. After the event she handed me a pice of TP and after I took off the condom I wiped my penis head to clear away the excess ejaculation…this is where I suspect I got infected, she had just gone pee and wiped and maybe touched a sore or something and then I got it on my penis from the tp? Idk. I’m just flailing.   After this I’ve had discomfort on the skin below the head of my penis and 4 bumps for 2 weeks now, the bumps don’t seem to have changed in size. I also had frequent urination for about a week and have had dull pain in my groin on and off. I also have some pins and needles on the sides of my abdomen/trunk that get worse when I go out in the heat or get dehydrated. I’ve had a lot of trouble sleeping, likely due to guilt and shame and worry about the future.   so I got one test done at 10 days from the event (idk know if this can tell me anything… the doctor assured me it was 100% correct and I don’t have herpes. I was not physically examined). I got a full panel std. neg for everything. HSV-1 results: IgG 0.3 / HSV-2 IgG 0.9 hsv-1 IgM = 2.2 hsv-2 IgM = 3.0 (Reference V. Negative: Less than 9.0 Borderline: 9.0 to 11.0 Positive: Greater than 11.0) I have an appointment with my GP on Thursday, hoping he can help. Will likely go to a std testing service tomorrow to see if I can get in an antiviral proactively. Plan to get tested again this week.
