Hypopigmentation on Genitals (HSV1G)

Recommended Posts

hi i was diagnosed back in March and it’s been a very long road so far,, i guess my main concern now that i’ve learned how to deal with everything else is healing the light spots on my genitals.. i suffered bad hypopigmentation in my labial area.. and i am very embarrassed and self conscious about it. i was wondering if anyone has experienced something similar and if it was any way to help the skin heal and get some pigmentation back. i was think maybe bio-oil or scarring serum .. if anyone has any ideas, thoughts, tips, please let me know ❤️

Hi @bubbles9991 

Yes I have similar pigmentation in my genital area. I tried using Mederma creme however, that aggravated the outbreaks as HSV needs a warm and moist environment. I am going to check with my dermatologist if there is any way to help me lighten those marks and I will put it again on this feed. A serum that dries quickly can help but let me check with my dermatologist, I am meeting him next week.

I checked with my dermat on th3 pigmentation . He didn't  suggest laser as mine is quite faint . He prescribed me a serum that has vitamin C and has asked me to use it for three months on the pigmented area. This one gets absorbed in the skin quickly and doesnt leave me with a moist skin,  previously using mederma cream undoubtedly  aggravated my outbreaks. I don't know if I will be allowed to post a picture of the serum on this forum but it is vitamin C mostly
