I am 19 and I just found out this morning I had herpes. Went to urgent care and found out after three days of having sores. I am afraid to try anything because it hurts to take a bath even. I got enough courage to try baking soda, made it into a paste and put it on my affected area. And it was the worst pain of my life. I couldn't get to the shower fast enough to get it off. In the past i used tree oil for acne on my face and I remember that burns. But I need something to work hopefully not something that will cause so much pain that I have to bail before it even gets a chance to work. These posts have been helpful to know I'm not alone in this. I cry my self to sleep most nights because I feel disgusting. It looks nasty, smells horrid, and I would rather get a tattoo down there everyday then have these sores.
I have been on acyclovir for almost a day now and they are spreading. I got proscribed Vicodin as well and it doesn't do a thing.
Another issue I am having is after I manage to take a bath I get out and fan the area because it soothes the pain but discharge or something causes it to get wet down there then causes unbearable pain. Help me please.. I don't know what to do at this point.

Try a numbing gel. If an over-the-counter med doesn't work, ask your doc for prescription strength.

Hot baths make it come out. Avoid hot baths. Take showers! I know. Been dealing with it over 30 years. Never have any problems anymore unless I soak in a hot tub.
