My comment is especially for the girl who wrote how painful peeing can be with genital herpes sores. The way I got through my first attack.. I had 77 sores at one time, My husband counted them. My doctors gave me Xylocaine to put on locally and told me to lie naked and let them get air as much as possible. Peeing was extremely painful and impossible to bear unless I ran a few inches of water in the bathtub, sat in it and then peeed. There was virtually no pain when urinating this way. If you have to poop, sit and pee in the bath water first, then sit on toilet and poop. It's the only way I survived that first attack of genital herpes. With subsequent, less fierce outbreaks you can sit on the toilet and as you pee pour a large plastic cupful of water from the sink over your genitals. It helps, but the tub is still best if you have a tub or plastic basin to sit in.
