Lesion won't heal?
My fiance and I were both recenltly diagnosed with herpes, though it seems I've had it for about 2 years and didn't know it. I experience extremely mild symptoms, but my fiance's are just terrible! In his last breakout, once his lesions started healing over, he broke out again in a different spot. Now it seems he may break out again in another completely seperate spot (he hasn't used any medication throughout this breakout, its his second one). His breakout has lasted about a month. He has one certain spot along the bottom edge of the head of his penis that has large open wound type lesion that simply will not heal. It scabs over and acts like it will heal right up and then the scab falls off and it looks like a big open wound again.
A couple theories I have is that he goes commando every day. Maybe that irritates it too much? Secondly, can the lesion which has lasted this long possibly benifit from prescription treatment at this point? Should be just wait it out this time? Any suggestions?
