These sores are real pains in the a_ _, litterely! my husband and I have suffered with herpes for over 23 years. This is how we treat the sores in the bum area. Clean and rinse well with anteseptic soap- if the herpes is blistered and bubbled...break it open. Wincing as I write this
Blow area dry with a hairdryer. Swab alcohol on sore! really hurts...but works. Than cover area with babypowder. In 20 some years this is the only thing we have found that heals this hard to treat area. Every time I am about to catch a cold or something I break out with these bum herpes! Yuk!!!!
