Hi everyone. I recently got diagnosed with HSV 2 in early Oc

Hi everyone. I recently got diagnosed with HSV 2 in early October. It hasn't even been two months and I have had outbreaks in different genital areas but they have all been very painful. I don't know how to alleviate the pain and it hurts to walk. Does anybody have any advice?

Thanks! Question. Do you know how long it takes for ulcers to crust. It has been almost 3 days and I feel like the ulcers have not improved.

@slothchick
everyone’s body reacts differently. figure a week to 10 days depending on what stage you’re at. being you’re new to HSV, it may take your body a while to combat and heal the new found intruder…

keeping it powdered and dry will expedite the crusting.
