1 Answer:

Hello good morning Chandra.


We need to explain beforehand about genital herpes. Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the Herpes Simplex virus. Genital herpes is characterized by the presence of sores in the genital area in the form of painful reddish blisters. Sometimes herpes does not cause typical symptoms, but people who have been infected with this virus can still pass it on to other people.


Antiseptic (anti-bacterial) fluids generally contain active Para-Chloro-Meta Xylenor or Chloroxylenol and isopropropyl alcohol as a solvent, also generally have an alkaline pH solution (9-10), which can cause skin irritation if used continuously for a long time and not dissolved according to instructions. We prefer to use plain clean water or salt water to clean the wound on the penis.


You also need to note that antiseptic solutions cannot cure genital herpes problems, because as mentioned above the cause of genital herpes is a virus, so the usual treatment is antiviral drugs. It is recommended that you consult a doctor (or to be more specific with a skin and genital specialist) to get the right treatment.

That's all, I hope this helps


Greetings, dr. Denisa
