Genital herpes: Herpes is a viral infection. After initial infection as the blisters go away, the virus goes into "hiding" in a nerve cell. It can come out again, particularly if a person is under stress or his/her immune system is low. It can be contagious even when rash is not present.

Treatment for less facial hair and though hair appeared on other private parts but not developed fully?

Smooth man?: If I understand your question correctly, you are not satisfied with your beard and would like a thicker growth and more pubic & body hair. Around 5% of men never get chest hair or beards thick enough to grow well; these men don't go bald. In the usa, many (maybe most) women prefer this. It's genetic and you're unlikely to alter it. Focus on getting muscular and trim. ...Read more

How can I ease the pain and swelling from genital herpes? I've been on several antibiotics but still having frequent reoccurrences, worse than before

See answer: Antivirals, not antibiotics, are used for treating herpes infections. If you are having frequent episodes of symptomatic, bothersome genital herpes (>2 a year), you should consider daily suppressive therapy (acyclovir, valacyclovir, or famciclovir) which has been shown to reduce outbreaks by 80-85%. Usually, stay on for 9 months to 2 years, and then stop and convert back to episodic treatment. ...Read more

I am experiencing genital sores, swelling, pain and itching. I don't think it's herpes or a yeast infection though.

I am experiencing genital sores, swelling, pain and itching. I don't think it's herpes or a yeast infection though.

Prob herpes or yeast: Herpes and yeast are by far the most common causes of such a problem. If redness and swelling of labia plus small sores (like cracks) in the sore area, yeast is likely. If larger sores, herpes is the best bet. New genital herpes often shows up without known risk, e.g. partner with no symptoms and no known herpes. Get expert care e.g. NHS GUM clinic, ASAP for accurate diagnosis & Rx if herpes. ...Read more

Reading conflicting info online - can genital herpes (HSV-2) of the groin cause lymph node swelling in the neck along with the groin?

Reading conflicting info online - can genital herpes (HSV-2) of the groin cause lymph node swelling in the neck along with the groin?

That's news to me: Since essentially all young adults have a few swollen lymph nodes in the neck, and it's healthy (they're your friends), it would be impossible to investigate this (frankly silly-sounding) claim. If the nodes in your neck flare when your genital herpes lesions do, maybe there's a connection. No big deal. Otherwise, stop worrying and get on with your life and be thankful for good health. ...Read more
