Itching In The Vagina And Ways Of Transmitting Genital Herpes?
Ma’am I want to ask. Initially I itchy pubic areas rather deep then I often washed using leaves (forgot the name of the leaf, which is certainly not lemongrass leaves) until 3 days I routinely washed my genitals with the leaves, a few days after that I menatrusi. When the menses itching disappears then after the itching there again and I don’t mind, just changing my panties often up to 3 times a day. After that, the itching in the throat is rather deep. Then, I don’t know how long from there I itchy areas of the body until it marks, until now. I just got married about 3 months ago, the incident was probably more than 6 months ago. And now my husband has genital herpes, the doctor said it was contagious from me. Then do I have the same disease as my husband so that my husband can be affected by the disease? Thank you for the doctor’s answer.
Hello Debicr, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.
Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV) because it is generally transmitted through sexual contact (vaginal, anal, and oral). Genital herpes can be identified by the appearance of reddish blisters and pain around the genital area. This wound can rupture and become an open wound.
The spread of this virus occurs through direct contact with an infected person, even though the infected person does not experience any symptoms at that time. Once infected, the sufferer's body will forever have this virus, and will be back active when the body's defense system decreases. No one can guarantee 100% the origin of the transmission of this virus infection. But if you feel you have symptoms and signs of herpes before, then there is a possibility that your husband is transmitted by you.
The things that can be done now are:
No sexual intercourse for a while until the husband and wife both recover from the symptoms. Clean the wound so that it does not become infected while accelerating healing. To relieve pain, cover the wound with ice cubes wrapped in cloth. Drink plenty of mineral water, to relieve pain when urinating. Use loose clothing to reduce pain in the area of skin with blisters. Such information that I can provide, hopefully can help you.
