Need advice to minimize herpes outbreaks

Recommended Posts

What have you found to be the best medication, valtrex or acyclovir ? I heard lemon balm works on open lesions well is this true? What are your personal best ways to keep outbreaks to a minimum? I want to be able to wear a bikini freely and feel sexy in my natural body!! What are your secrets please share i am dying to know!

Valtrex has worked wonders for me, I just had to give it a few months. Now taking it daily as suppression and it has worked wonders. Lemon balm has dried up and healed my boyfriends blisters in a day or so, without rupturing. I usually get the papercut ulcers, and they hang around for awhile regardless of what I try. (Epsom salt baths, tea tree oil, lemon balm). I would like to think they all help, but I think it's the Valtrex more than anything else. But I haven't had an actual ob with lesions since February when I was diagnosed. Was having lots of prodrome syndromes for a couple of mths after, and constant irritation, but that has all gone away. Hope you can get some relief soon too.

The thing about the meds, and about OTC/natural things is that every person has to find what works for them.... So you will have to just try one of the meds (and don't forget Famvir) ... and we have a bunch of suggestions/discussions about what to try in the links below :)
