Hi everyone, 

i was diagnosed with HSV 1&2 back in February. Since then I have had 3 OBs however I believe one was due to shaving as I started feeling tingling soon after and decided to take my Valtrex to stop it as soon as possible. I’m so scared to shave because I don’t want to get another outbreak, because I’m really 99.9% sure that was what caused the 3rd one. Do you all shave and how can I prevent having an outbreak when shaving?

The only comfortable way i found to shave is buy a bikini line electric razor. You cant cut the hair super short. I do it at the longest legnth it gives me  i find the closer to the skin the more irritation afterwards. But i shave with that then sit in a sits bath with baking soda. Helps keep the area dry. 

 

I really hope this is helpful for you :)"

I actually have one of those! I used it but I JSU have cut too close honestly. I’ll try it again or I may even buy another one to see how that works. Thank you

It all depends on your bodys reaction to it. If it doesnt work shaving may not be for you and you may need to look into a trimming kit. I know ive been trying the both to see which gives less irritation. 

Your welcome. 🙂

Thanks @kinator and @amber1326. I’m taking all of this into consideration. I think I’m going to try the one I have once more to see if I react to it and I’ll try not to shave too close. However, I have been looking at other trimmers that may potentially work better.

I use a spray bottle filled with coconut oil and lavendar essential oil and spray the area thoroughly. I then rub it in good and shave. After, i spray more and rub in. I also only use baking soda to wash "down there" . Everyone is different but thought its worth sharing!
