I'm going through my first outbreak (I think) and what I've noticed bothered the area most was my vaginal secretions. I know this might not be a great idea, but I've started using tampons to keep any secretions from coming in contact with the sores. It has worked well so far, I make sure I change them often to avoid TSS, and as far as the string goes, I just tuck it in with the rest of it so it doesn't rub up against any of the sores. Hope this helps!
