Question: Herpes and alcohol?

Anything that weakens your immune system won't help. Vodka is certainly one of those things. Not guaranteed that it'll make it worse, but it certainly won't help your body heal.

Notes:

  • My mother is now in hospice with end-stage cancer, so I am at her house a lot these days helping where I can until she passes. Thank you in advance for understanding if I am not as quick to respond as I normally would be. This is a precious and bittersweet time …

It's ultimately your decision whether you drink or not ... I still drink occasionally and it doesn't lead to an outbreak, but I'm also very healthy otherwise. AND I know plenty of people who aren't the least bit healthy, drink like fishes and are completely asymptomatic (never have outbreaks). It's a total individual thing. It's how your body is made up, it's how your immune system functions, it's a lot of things. I'd say that if you're still going through your first outbreak to try to only put healthy stuff into your body. Give your body a break. It's already battling herpes, so if you put alcohol in your system, it's just weakening its defenses. But again, it's totally your call. Vodka may be worth taking the chance of a weakened immune system. But have you considered some fresh-juiced carrot juice? Yummy. ;)
