Hi everyone! I was diagnosed with HSV2 6 months ago and I had a horrible classic first outbreak. It was textbook and now I am just trying to figure out my body and knowing my prodrome symptoms and OB signs. I haven't had many OB's and was convinced I was having one recently because I was stressed about doing my first disclosure to a guy I am seeing...go figure. (But the disclosure went awesome by the way, he was amazing about it
"> ) Anyway...when I went in for my annual exam and I asked my Dr. if it was an OB, she said it was not and just a bad case of folliculitis. I think I disagree, but can anyone tell me if you have symptoms similar to this? I had tiny bumps and a kind of itchy rash in my bikini zone area on the upper V zone front part of my thigh on both sides. My Dr. said the sores would be lower than that, but I understand they can be anywhere down there. I was careful shaving and it seemed to clear up and then come back over the week. But I had a lot of red bumps and not all seemed to have hair...ugh! I am wondering if anyone waxes or has done laser in that bikini area so that they can tell the difference between an OB and folliculitis? It seems logical....girls please help me with some advice on if this would help clear up differences between the 2!?!? I have always shaved, but if waxing or laser helps I am totally going to try that....then it eliminates the guessing game. Ideas? Comments?
