Steroid cream?

Recommended Posts

ddrt

My OB looked like a rash...my Dr. told me to use this prescription steroid cream.... I thought I read somewhere not to use this. Any one have any experience?

Hi ddrt,

You can read more about that here: http://www.herpes-coldsores.com/herpes_treatments.htm

Steroid creams are contra-indicative for viral conditions such as herpes. Although it can sometimes give relief initially, it then usually inflames the outbreak and makes it worse.

Hope this helps,

Shenda

Thanks...I think that is exactly what happened. I used the cream for a week and it seemed to help....as soon as I stopped it flared up. Is there something I can use or just let it run its course?

Be mindful not to irritate the area with too many things. Perhaps helping to soothe the area may be the best option at this stage. I would suggest a bath with Epsom Salts to beign with and dosing up on your Lysine and supplements.

I will NEVER use the cream again. I was reading about Dynamiclear. Any one have any experience with that?

      Hi, I have the exact same thing and have been to a gp and sexual health clinic and it hasn’t been resolved. Did you get any answers?

      a week ago, I went to lab and get my test done for STD. everything is clear on the test except HSV 1.   Ranges are  <0.90 - Negative 0.90-1.09 - Equivocal >1.09 - Positive   And My result for HSV 1 seems to be too high    it is HSV 1 IGG, TYPE SPECIFIC AB 56.90 H ( OUT OF RANGE ) I was paid for this test (full std) everything came back negative except hsv 1, after I seen the result, I called my doctor to made an appointment to discuss this matter. I will most likely request a test from my doctor and have him to check this out.  It's been 3 years I was in USA and had sex just a couple times.   I never had unprotected sex since like 10 years. I was in USA for 3 years now and like i said never had sex unprotected almost for 10 years. Received oral for 5-6 times.   Here is the picture :  The purple marks on my legs are stretch marks due of doing weight lifting. I do have so many of them on my body. As you see in the picture, they are FLAT. not like a bump or pimple. I checked so many pictures on internet but I think mines don't look like herpes but I just want to know your thoughts about this.
