The scars will fade gradually..
You should not apply anything without consulting a Physician and getting proper screening done..
If the active sores have resolved you need not to worry as scars will get faded gradually..

Hope this helps..

Scaring depends on your orientation, if you are white then scar may fade gradually and not leave any trace or affect sensitivity, if you are dark skin or Caucasian then I recommend that you use contratubrex cream 5 times daily with constant massaging for 5 min each time
Good Luck

Hello.Herpes scars usually heal completely without scarring unless there is a secondary bacterial infection.Since genital skin is delicate I suggest that you avoid using any creams or ointments there as it can lead to problems.If there is scarring do consult a dermatologist.Take care and best wishes!
