I engaged in sex last night -- please don't ask, i was slightly drunk. we used a condom and didn't even finish -- but I remembered this morning about the cuts. Since I don't know what it really is, I feel really irresponsible. my cuts have gotten bigger as well. one of them is at least 3/4 an inch and the other smaller cuts...some of them are new. I'm really freaked out :(
The other question I have is that I put that YI prescription cream my gyno recommended a few weeks ago on the cuts. The cream is Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide ointment. Do you think this will help my cuts? Finally, it says external use only. Some of my cuts have widened out due to the sex so you think this is a good idea or no?
Okay, I have to make this quick because I have to run to work.
Since my rape last year, my vagina has been totally different. it hurts at random, bumps, sometimes cuts. It's worse when I'm stressed out. These things go away about every 2 weeks, and I have no pain for a week, but then it just comes back. Today, I have like 3 or 4 cuts down there, and it's really painful. My gyno told me I do have hpv, and precancerous cells (i'm removing them), maybe it's genital warts? But I feel like if they were, i wouldn't have cuts.
Now, she said it could be genital herpes. But then I got tested for an IgM I/II and she said it couldn't be. I don't believe her. the guy on the on-call emergency line said it could still be herpes but I'd need an IgG or whatever.
So, I'm hoping to get that test soon but in the meantime to keep my sanity, can herpes symptoms be cuts and not blisters???
How do I handle having these cuts? I can't clean myself down there or rub my eyes or touch my face out of fear I may be spreading herpes to the rest of my body. I wash my hands ,but idk if that's enough.
