After the outbreak symptoms

Recommended Posts


I am so sorry you are experiencing a second outbreak and the skin dryness. 

That has not happened to me personally, however it could be due to the irritation that the sores cause the skin. Our skin is so strong and is our bodies first line of defense, but it's also a sensitive organ affected by so much!

In general, herpes outbreaks can include dry or cracked skin in addition to the classic sores. However, it's tricky to handle this because applying lotion or cream could irritate the sores, so it may be a delicate balance. 

There is a product called L-lysine cream/ointment (the one I used was yellow and smelled like lemon... I don't know why 😂) that I have used and it helps heal the sores. It's natural and is really nourishing, and it may help rehydrate and nourish the dry skin you are experiencing. 

I hope this helps!! I will research more solutions for you, too!! 🌻
