Neither will have any effect against herpes.

Im getting Abscess' in Groin area,
Could it be from Inflammatory Bowel Disease???
Tired of getting lanced near my penis/testicles at the ER, thanks!
Maybe: Although IBD can cause groin abscesses (Crohn's or Behcet's more so than UC) a more likely cause is hidradenitis--or more simply, infected sweat glands. Abscesses may need drainage, and sometimes more extensive surgery is needed (unroofing, skin grafts, etc.) but oftentimes daily washing with a topical antibacterial soap may reduce the incidence of abscess formation. MRSA is also a common cause. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
