How long does an ob take to heal without antivirals? I am experiencing what seems to be my second OB of g-hsv. My first OB was one small blister/sore on the tip of my genitals, which is still a mystery to me on how I got it. This second OB has been mostly behind the foreskin and on the crown. I also have a red patch on the head of my penis. I've always had PPP so at first it looked like my PPP was inflamed and bursting. I immediately purchased the Dynamiclear complete kit and I've been taking the pills. I put some dynamiclear over the weekend, and it hasn't healed yet. It didn't sting or burn when I put on the dynamiclear. This is really depressing!! It looks like I have cancer on my genitals and it is never going to heal. I've read that you need to keep the area dry, correct? So is it a bad idea to completely cover the infected areas in lysine cream or abreva or something like that?
