I've had herpes for a very long time and there's one thing that seems to trigger an outbreak without question and i know this will sound weird. the only thing that i can say deffinately causes an outbreak is splashback from the toilet. anytime i go to the restroom and there's a splash large enough to get my butt wet an outbreak will show up there within 24 hours. i'm not sure why this happens but it surely does.
Thank you all for the information regarding clearing up and preventing outbreaks. I've suffered from GH for about 10 years. I find my outbreaks are related to a latex sensitivity that I have. If I use prophylactics that are non-latex, I don't usually have much of an issue. Problem is, these products are very expensive. Also have found that excessive sugar in my diet can easily bring on an outbreak. Sun seems to counteract this. I think outbreak triggers and methods of clearing up outbreaks are very personal and different for everyone. Thank you all for sharing though, gives me possibilities to try.
I have found a product called Traveler's Friend 'Citrus Seed Extract' which the health food shop assistant said he was sure was mostly Grapefruit seed extract. I tried it amongst many things I am exploring having contracted herpes. I am improving every day and continuing with oral coconut oil, colloidal silver and (carefully diluted hydrogen peroxide). The reason why I'm posting this is that I had three small blisters appear on the top of my p----. As well as all the rest of my genitals being affected this was too much. I put a drop of grapefruit seed extract on these three (they were close together). To my huge surprise within half an hour they had retreated, then got small scabs and healed far quicker than anything else has!! WARNING: I then got excited and put the gfs extract on other larger sores, and suffered severe pain which I think was a result of this. Nonetheless, the incredible speed at which the gfs extract turned those three sores (painlessly) into final phase needs to be mentioned and is surely worth exploring. I am now taking gfs extract orally (15 drops in a glass of water 3x/day and may increase)
I have been plauged with sores on my lips since getting kissed in high school by a guy who had a sore (I remember noticing it but didn't know what it was). I tried every prescribed medication but never really found relief, especially after the sore erupted. Over the years, I have experienced fewer outbreaks and I attribute that to: eating healthier, developing better ways to cope with stress, and including l-lysine and lemonbalm in my supplement regimine. As soon as I feel that tight, tingly spot in my lip, I load up (just about triple) my dose of the l-lysine and lemonbalm, and the outbreak doesn't come through. This has been a terrible week (including the death of a family member) and I missed that tight, tingly feeling. Today, I have blisters. I've read and read and read everyone's posts. I'm trying the hydrogen peroxide treatment and calling in sick to work. I'llbe happy to post the outcome later, but I wanted to let you guys know what I've found that prevents the sores to begin with. Research for your self to determine the best dosages and frequency of before you begin any herbal supplementation, but I personally attest to the effectiveness of this regimine.
I had breakouts all the time. I went to a holistic doctor which gave me the following for for 45 days(Flora max 2 caps 2x a day, Colostrum 600mg 2 caps 2x a day, Red Marine Algae 500mg 2 caps 2x a day, BHT food grade preservative 2 caps 2x a day, Colloidal Silver 400ppm 1/2 tps in 2 oz of water 2x a day and Host Defence made from organic mushrooms 2 caps 2x a day. Part 1 build basic immune system and weaken the virus breakouts go away in about 2 weeks. Part 2 introduce special agents herbal medicines that kill the virus. You will continue to take Red Marine Algae, BHT and VRP Colloidal Silver. I have not had another breakout again and this really works.

For herpes, break open a vitamin A capsule and apply. I've tried everything. This helps me prevent a full blown outbreak. I get the virus on my nose!

I was reading the Herpes pages, and someone mentioned to avoid foods and drinks with arginine. I think everyone should know that virtually all sex lubricants on the market contain arginine! I have not been able to find one that did not contain this, and it causes outbreaks immediately.

While reading the various treatments others have posted for herpes, which I will try some of these myself, I have not read what symptoms people notice they are having prior to an out break. Getting more in touch with your body's symptoms prior to an outbreak can completely prevent the outbreak altogether as the virus can be suppressed.
I will have fatique for sure... Also my "nerves will bother me" a lot! I will feel hot and cold, (sometimes but not always) and many times my stomach will rumble and act peculiar 24-48 hours prior to an outbreak. I have very carefully learned this over the years.
I have to avoid completely eating any type of acidy foods like tomatoes, tomatoe sauces, orange juice, jalapenos or spicy types of foods. Acidophilus tablets double or even tripling the normal dose along with eating yogurt is very helpful. If you have valtrex or similar product, acylovir and take as soon as you notice symptoms this will allow the virus to calm down and then go dormant as apposed to raising to the surface of the skin. Pay attention to feeling of your neck on each side, near the glands as this usually is very tender and hurts right before an outbreak occurs on the skin. If you feel it is coming to the surface but has not formed yet a sore, usually doubling the medication at that point will help that the sore is greatly reduced from what it could of been without taking it.
Also the nerve endings are effected by the virus so taking B vitamins and mineral supplements that help the nerves will be greatly effective in calming down the system and helping in suppressing the virus. Stay away from stressful situations as much as possible if you can and use deep breathing really helps....

If you are finding a herpes fighting solution than Dalinex is an effective homeopathic formula. It can be taken without any risk as it is made from organic products that do not causes any harm on the body.

Hello, I was diagnosed with herpes type 2. Have read that this oxygen therapy may cure my herpes. I am going to try the food grade 35% h2o2. 3 drops 3x times each day in a 6 oz glass cup! Then, day 2 it goes up to 4 drops 3x times each day and I will keep increasing the number of drops untilI have reached the maximum of 25 drops.
Then the very next day I will start dropping the amount back down to 24 drops 3x times each day, then 23 drops 3x each day and I will continue down to maintenance level of 10,5,3-whatever feels right! Is this ok?
Also, I am bit confused about this whole regime like others. So.. I know it has to be taken with distilled water on an empty stomach 1 hour before food and 3 hours after food and water or liquids 1/2 hr after is ok.
But I have also heard of the three hr window too. I am a bit confused on to how to complete this oxygen therapy. When to eat.. Etc.. What can?I drink? Can I go back to drinking spring water after the 1/2 hr? I do take mulit-vitamins so I've read that it is a no no. But, is that only between the 3 hr window or the 1 hr before food and 3 hrs after food thing? Any information I would greatly appreciate it!! Thank you so much!!! :) oh!
Also, was thinking about taking the hperoxide 35% food grade into a bath because I think I would have a hard time following the procedures of taking it orally and I have heard that you can eat whenever while inducing the formula into a warm bath so that might be the way to go for me but was wondering if it would have the same effects as taking it orally as a result to try to get rid of the simplex virus! ? Again, thank you so much. I do look forward to hearing form you! I am excited to start! " I am really not sure how this site works. Posted this about three times and have not gotten a reply from Ted or anyone? feel free to email me so I can get a response. Thank you.

Hello, I was soooo happy with my results, I just had to tell someone!!! I was diagnosed with Herpes in November 2012, and after using Hydrogen Peroxide for about a month I was retested and it was gone!!!! According to the test the value has to be below 0.90 to be negative, and my original value was 41.3, and now it's less than 0. 90 and stating negative results!!!
I've actually worked for a pharmaceutical company before and never trusted the drugs because I got to see what was actually in them. It's really sad you can't depend on the medical community to help heal the sick, but they are all about $. I plan to spread the word as much as possible.
The way I used hydrogen peroxide was made a 3% solution from a 35% solution (1 1/3 cups to a gallon of distilled water) I'm a chemist so it was easy for me to do the conversions then I measured it using cups to make it easier for everyone.
Then I inhaled it about twice a day using the over the counter Automizer using hydrogen peroxide instead of the meds the atomizer comes with.

So as far as a "Cure" what do you guys think about Oxygenating or using the One Minute Miracle... It seems to make sense... also that 35% Hydrogen Peroxide will kill the virus for good after 2 to 3 months of taking this....

Adding diluted Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide to a pitcher of ice tea has been a God Send. I was devasted when I tested positive about 7 yrs. ago. I never had a severe case and outbreaks were pretty infrequent but it was more the embarrassment than the discomfort that lead me to find a solution. The lysine did not work at all for me. But to my utter amazement and relief the FGHP did! It has been about 3 years since I started adding it and I have not had an "occurrence" since...not one full blown outbreak!!! Although I have felt like it was going to happen due to fatigue or sore legs or a pain in my stomach but then I would make an effort to ingest more of the FDHP than normal which seemed to stop the potential onset in its tracks. Please try this and be careful...read the directions and dilute properly. All I can say is it REALLY worked. I think I might get tested during my next wellness visit to see if it's gone....fingers crossed!

I read that the virus has to have a warm and moist environment to REPLICATE, or go extremely active. I soak my fingers in HP initially to dry out the infected area and the COOL (not warm) sensation eases the itch. I then soak a cotton ball in HP and place it on the infected area and keep it in place with a fabric band aid b/c they don't loose adhesion when wet. I then resoak that whole finger (2 soaks and a cotton ball so far) while it's wrapped and remove the band aid about an hour later. This also removes any tiny blisters that tried to form during the first few hours of prodrone. (I believe the prodrone sensation is the actual SKIN seperating from it's lower layers trying to form a blister, which becomes itchy) MAKES SENSE TO ME. After any dead skin is peeled away from the bandage I keep it dry with HP as uaual until it's said and done. Within ONE day I am able to rid myself of any and most all discomfort AND by the next day I'm WELL on my way into the healing stage. NO BLISTERS, NO DISCOMFORT, INFECTED SKIN REMOVED, NO ITCH, JUST HEALING. IDK how or why it works other than it DRIES the area which is GREAT FOR YOU vs. BAD FOR VIRUS...AND it REMOVES the infected top layer of skin even if any blisters are barely visible, the skin is peeled away, and recleaned/redried with HP until it just naturally heals on it's own. For me it takes about half or less of a day to rid myself of discomfort and maybe two days to get it feeling back to normal and WELL into the healing stages. My first outbreak with the VIRUS lasted almost two weeks..and it wasn't pretty. With DRYING and REMOVAL and CLEANLINESS I am able to shorten two weeks into a mere day or two and the discomfort is gone is half a day. GOOD LUCK!! BTW I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT CAUSED MY OUTBREAK b/c IT DID IT TO ME BEFORE. NEVER... EVER... EVER... EVER.... EVER, TAKE ANY BARBITUATES BECAUSE IT PLACES THE NERVOUS SYSTEM INTO A SLEEP STATE AND YOU GUESSED IT. THAT'S WHERE THE VIRUS LIES DORMANT ;) IF SOMEONE PAYS ME I'll KEEP RESEARCHING...lol My outbreaks are so minmimal I would get paid to go through one again just to prove that my process works for me. It doesn't cure anything but it goes from onset to AGHHHHH in a mere day as I said before if not two. Give it a shot if you have the same problem and I WISH YOU THE BEST OF LUCK b/c this has to be one of the most UNFAIR VIRUS' ever to plaque humans. REMEMBER....KEEP IT DRY and COOL!! AGHHHHH is the KEY.
