People sometimes experience genital herpes recurrences in the anal area, either on the sphincter or “between the cheeks.” Outbreaks in that area can feel worse from the rubbing that occurs from every day activities like simply walking. Sitting can be uncomfortable or even painful… not to mention the irritation that happens from wiping after going to the toilet. The irritation from these activities, as well as the friction from having sex, or wearing tight, constricting clothes, can even bring about an outbreak. Very annoying!
In the search for ways to manage outbreaks and alleviate pain, we’ve seen and tried many products. During a particularly distressing anal outbreak, one of our friends went on the hunt for something to soothe and prevent the irritation from her butt-cheeks rubbing together.
She found a natural product called Tea Tree Therapy Antiseptic Ointment with Eucalyptus Australiana and Lavender Oil. Made by Tea Tree Therapy of Ventura, California, with natural ingredients sourced from Australia. She found that it not only soothed her outbreak, but she now uses it in between outbreaks to keep the area from chafing. You can also use it on minor cuts, abrasions, rashes, sunburn, and insect bites. And it smells wonderful, too!
