I Have Small Sores Blisters Near The Vagina And They Sting Really Bad. Is There Any Home Remedy That You Can Advise Me?

The condition you seem to be describing sounds a lot like a case of genital herpes. However, it is impossible to be certain without a physical examination and so it is important that you visit your doctor as soon as possible. If you are sexually active and have had unprotected sex, you are vulnerable to this condition. This is because genital herpes can only be transmitted via sexual intercourse with an individual who is already infected. The condition is brought on by the herpes simplex virus and the blisters that arise are quite painful and are seemingly filled with liquid. They tend to cause even more pain when they break open. Once a person is infected, the virus remains in the body for as long as they live, with an occasional outbreak from time to time that can be controlled by way of prescribed medication. Genital herpes is an extremely contagious condition; it affects almost 50 million Americans alone with almost 1 million new individuals affected every year. Moreover, almost 80 to 90 percent of those individuals that are affected by the genital herpes either do not recognize the symptoms or do not show any symptoms of the condition.

The blisters will take about three to seven days to appear after skin to skin contact with the infected individual and the blisters are roughly about 3 millimeters in size and tend to grow in clusters. In most cases, the first outbreak of the condition is usually the worst, also bringing with it severe cases of headaches, fever and even muscle aches.

There are a number of home remedies that will prove to be particularly beneficial when dealing with genital herpes. You could try having a bath with slightly warm water twice a day with the use of unscented bathing products to help the blisters heal faster. A high intake of carrot juice will help the body tremendously in alkalizing the body during outbreaks. This will help detoxify the body as the toxin content will make the sores worse. Baking soda is also known to be very beneficial when dealing with an outbreak of genital herpes. Try applying some of the baking soda on the sores with the help of a cotton ball. This will decrease the itching sensation over the blisters. The application of cornstarch in much the same way as the baking soda is also helpful in alleviating the itching sensation. The application of milk over the affected sores will not only reduce the itching, but also significantly boost the healing process of the sores.
