Gold Bond!

Recommended Posts

Exceeder

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.

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?

      In my case, the symptoms of keratitis appeared suddenly, while I was waiting for the bus on a bus stop. I had a feeling like something burst in my left eye. The eye immediately became red, very watery, painful and I couldn't look at the light. There was a hospital nearby, so in half an hour I had an appointment with an ophthalmologist who diagnosed keratitis and gave me a prescription for some eye drops. The instruction for the eye drops mentioned that this medicine was used against keratitis caused  the herpes virus. That's how I found out that my keratitis was a viral one. For the next 15 years I had relapses of the keratitis. I was lucky that the corneal clouding was far enough away from the pupils and didn't affect my vision. Since I started using the garlic solution 18 years ago, I've successfully been preventing any keratitis relapses which sometimes try to come back. In case of viral keratitis there's no discharge from the eyes. If you have some discharge, it may possibly mean that you have a bacterial infection which should be treated with antibiotics. The problem is in finding the right drug for your particular case, the particular antibiotics that can kill the infection in your eyes. Garlic has both anti-viral and antibacterial properties, so you can try this method, it won't do you any harm anyway. Make the garlic solution with water as described in my post above. Apply it to the closed eyelids every hour during the day and every 2 hours during the night. Two days will be enough to see if garlic has any affect in your case, whether it makes their condition any better. Try this and let me know how it goes, write to me at  vasilenko.igor@inbox.ru Kind regards, Igor Vasilenko

      Man, I think you need to meet people before you disclose to them. Having said that, I've disclosed via text and that worked for me with my ex girlfriend. We were together almost two years. Gotta get out there and take a few hits, to iron out your approach.

      Shit now I'm worried.   My partner had no symptoms, and never has and does not know status.   Has gone to be tested too.  Recently cleared of other std's but honestly we never discussed HSV.

      Good question- someone here maybe Wilso will be able to elaborate on this, but I do believe there needs to be a certain amount of copies detected before it can be infectious.
