I went to the doctor two days ago because it was burning when I pee. The urine test showed a Urinary Tract Infection. Then two days later the pain felt worse and so I started to self examine and noticed some lesions around my vagina. I was horrified! I started googling it and most pointed towards herpes, staph infection, or yeast infection.
I went to the doctor this morn and he said most likely it is GH. I just burst into tears! I've never had an STI in my life and have had 3 monogamous relationships. I've never had an outbreak before. The doctor wasn't the best about it either. He seemed to come off as very judgmental. I told him I haven't had sex in over a year and he didn't believe me. He made me feel so awful.
I don't know how to cope with this. I feel so ashamed and don't understand after over a year why this would come up now? I've never had a cold sore before either.
He has prescribed Valacyclovir and T3s for the pain. I would prefer to get rid of the pain in a more natural way but it hurts so much that all I can do is cry. He said it is quite a big outbreak.
I've tried putting baking soda on but it makes it hurt so bad. Are they any less painful home remedies that will help dry them up?
