    Just diagnosed herpes first outbreak

    First outbreak and having a really painful experience. I am female and
    when I go to the bathroom the pain almost makes me pass out. Any
    tips on how to help with the pain of urinating?

    Not sure if it will help, but Azo is very effective for urinary pain relief for a UTI. Don't know if it will help with a herpes outbreak. It turns your urine an alarming shade of orange. Good luck, hope it helps.

    The best thing you can do is start drinking more water. I know it sounds like not the thing to do but it will help as the more water you drink the less acid in your urine and the less it will burn. Also you can pee in the shower or in a hot water bath which will help you feel better. Here is a link that has lots of helpful hints and if it does not come up properly then you can look in the tip section at the right for this as well

    How were you diagnosed as having HSV? Was it a culture/swab or was it a blood test. If a blood test ask for a copy of the numeric test results and post them on here so someone can confirm your status.

    God Bless you as you move forward.

    If you have any more questions please ask so we can help you. Nothing is to personal as if you do not ask you will not know.

    try putting some tissue paper on the area that burns so that it's kind of covered when you pee and hopefully some of it gets absorbed in the tissue...hope it helps
