alright, this is just slightly embarrassing to say, but i wanted to see if there was anything that could make this problem heal faster, so i can go back to sitting comfortably. i have a pair of underwear with a zipper on them. i have a boyfriend who wasn't paying enough attention when he zipped them back up. let's just say that i know how guys feel when they accidentally zip themselves in. it was bleeding a bit, but that's stopped. just wondering what i should use to alleviate some of the pain. heat? ice? i don't know... thanks.

They have zippers on underwear?! Geez what will they come up w/ next!?

Well first of all, i would suggest ice. I don't like heat on any open cuts or anything b/c it just doesn't feel good to me. It might get inflammed or something cuz sometimes cuts like to do that, and the ice should take a bit of the swelling down. Be careful to make sure that area is clean b/c an infection there would be really bad ... believe me Good luck!

A cold compress or ice wrapped in a washcloth or towel will help bring the swelling down and help reduce the pain. Otherwise, take aspirin, ibuprofen, or something similar, keep your hands off of it except to wash it once a day (we often infect our own cuts/scrapes by touching them), keep it dry, and leave it alone. It should, like any other minor cut or abrasion, heal up pretty quickly.

Small consolation: because they are so rich with blood vessels, the genitals and genital area usually heal very quickly from small cuts and such. Give it a couple of days and you should be back to normal.

Wow. And I thought thongs were a technological wonder...

But, you may not want to get it in you, but i find Neosporin to be very helpful and soothing in times of need.

all the more reason not to wear novelty underwear.

wear loose, breathable clothing. it'll heal better.

Sorry if this is prying, but you didn't zip THAT, did you?

If so, you have gone through pain that no man has ever gone through.

Did you get the SCHZIK?

yeeow....

i'd recommend bactine. use a make-up pad or cotton ball, and just apply to the affected area.

It might sting a bit initially, but it's got anaesthetic properties...it'll make you feel lots better
