I am a woman 24 this year. I have been diagnosed genital herpes and just taking antiviral for two days and a cream Fucidin. Im also do a seat bath of salt water twice a day. But i found out today that my ulcer have been attached and its hurt to separate it even after i do a seaf bath in salt water. I have next appointment on Monday. Should i let the ulcer attach or how to separate it as I cannot bear it.

Hello. Thank you for your inquiries.

For your information, there is no doubt that sea bath is benificial for the skin alongside with certain skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. However, there is no recent studies or evidence that shows the efficacy of sea bath towards any sexual transmitted infections such as herpes. Although, there is no objections towards using sea salth bath in your case, unless there is an allergic reaction.

It is common that some ulcers might merge into a singular lesion. However, separating the merged lesion is not recommended as it may lead to spread of infection by the secretions from the wound or blisters.
We recommend you to meet your doctor regarding this problem as they might have an idea for your problem, provided that they have visual advantage on your skin condition.

Get into relationships without the infection.

If you have any more queries, you may click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with our doctors online to receive better consultation regarding your current problem. We assure you that our conversations are kept in confidentiality unless additional consultation needed with other medical parties. Thank you.

Be free of sexually transmitted disease and lead a happy life. Get specialist advice today.
