[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  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.

[YEA]  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.

Vitamin B complex in prophylaxis of herpes.

I found out some information on internet and I use this method successfully for many years. So…. I take every day Vitamin B complex (if you read more about group B vitamins, you will discover it works for immune system support). If it is huge dose, I take it once in 2-3 days, if it small dose, then every day. Believe me while I take it, herpes never come, it can be as long as 6 months. As soon I get slack, forget to buy Vitamins for couple of weeks or start to think my herpes get cured and stop taking it- it is back in my tender place at once! Also, if I go on Diet, or get very stressed or overtired or get sick with cold, even overexposed to sun, herpes strait away feel that my immune system is down and make itself comfortable and kick in. So it is very important to look after your health and wellbeing and never let your immune system down.

[YEA]  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!

Herpes and Sex Lube   0  0

[WARNING!]  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.

[WARNING!]   I had used astroglide with warming last week and immediately I got bacterial vaginosis, my lymph nodes swelled, and I had a herpes outbreak (worst one in about 15 years).

I am not sure if the astroglide caused the BV and outbreak because I have used regular astroglide before with no problems. It could also be the lidocaine my boyfriend used to desensitize his penis and prolong his erection.

If anyone knows about lidocaine or astroglide causing BV and herpes outbreaks; let me know.

I am currently taking L-Lysine capsules (2000 mg a day), ACV, Acidopolis, and Folic acid.

I would suggest only using all natural personal lubricants. I like a product called Silk. It is sold on www.purebodysolutions.com. Most conventional lubricants contain petrochemicals, which are not the best for vaginal flora.

Latex and oils shouldn't be used together. The oil will break down the latex. My understanding is that non latex male condoms are not as effective. Female condoms are not latex and have a higher success rate so might be a good choice to use with coconut oil. Drawback is that they are more expensive.

My husband and I have been using coconut oil as a lubricant for a long time. The coconut oil soothes my skin whereas other lubes I have used would just irritate me. It was a pain to have to heat the oil every time to get it to liquefy and of course scooping it out of a jar isn't hygienic unless you use a spoon - another mood killer. During my OB appointment last month my doctor recommended a product called SemPure. It is 100% coconut oil, but stays liquid at room temperature. No more heating or scooping! We have been using for a few weeks and love it. Like other oils we can't use it with latex, but it does fine with polyurethane condoms.

Thank you, This is true I think. I have GH. But with the herbs and lysine I take. Mostly few outbreaks...

But I noticed that with condoms. I was getting small OB everytime. Condoms with lube. So now I understand. Thank you. And I hope other notice this too. Sex is important to me, so finding best way to act normal. Is great!!

Herpes Outbreak Prevention Tips   0  0   

Posted by Kelly (Dallas, Texas) on 07/26/2011

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.

[YEA]  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.

I am so inspired by your story about using an inhaler, but my question is... Could you mix a solution of h2o2 and stabilized oxygen together or would that potentially cause tissue damage? Also I am already dropping h2o2 into water and taking that 3 times daily. Wondering if I could continue that or just stay with the inhaler...

[YEA]   Hydrogen peroxide works. I had my ob for 7 days so far. The first 5 days I was using apple cider vinegar it was painful and I was seeing no results. So the fifth day I started with peroxide... I will admit it stings but not as bad as the ACV. And the next morning my sore started to clear up. Also I used tea tree all alternating through out the day. About 5 times a day.. Thank you so much I didn't want to have to go to the doctor. I hate those meds.

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....

[YEA]  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!

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  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.

[YEA]  Seriously, try 20% cream Hydrogen Peroxide on a cotton ball and lightly press it on the area. Apply everyday until it's completely gone. I'm on Valtrex and Zovirax but hydrogen peroxide has done more for me and my symptoms are gone (for now I expect). This is my 1st outbreak so we'll see. I still need to convince my bf that he's got it. He has no symptoms and doesn't believe that he gave it to me, but he had tender lymph nodes on both sides. My doctor confirmed that this is a primary breakout for me.

My bf has been in Iraq for the past 6 mos. and he was here 3 weeks ago for leave. Two weeks after he left I developed symptoms. During a routine exam my doc saw a tiny pinhead sized bump (looked like a goosebump) and asked me if I had oral sex with anyone in the past few weeks. He did a swab of the area and five days later told me it wasn't the cold sore variety but genital herpes. This f---- sucks because I didn't get anything from my bf before. He probably got it in Iraq. lol WTF

[YEA]  Soaking in a bath up to your wast with a cup of peroxide has helped in stopping genital herpes outbreaks for me, when you feel the onset of an outbreak.

Posted by Joanne (Taos, New Mexico) on 07/19/2008

[YEA]  I suffered greatly from genital herpes on a regular basis until I tried hydrogen peroxide. I was in the painful blister stage when I first tried it, and applied H2O2 with a cotton ball to the area, almost "scubbing" the blisters down because they were so painful and the area was so itchy. Miracle of miracles--it relieved the pain and itch almost immediately, and the next day the problem was reduced by 95%.

Now if I have an outbreak I usually ignore it until it gets uncomfortable, then apply the H202. It seems to be most effective when blisters have formed or are at least beginning, but I have also found I could prevent it from reaching that point by applying earlier.

Knowing that it is easy to fix once it gets worse, I usally can't be bothered to get out the hydrogen peroxide until it gets annoying. I don't pass on the chocolate or other foods that cause breakouts either anymore. I hope you will try it and that it will be a miracle for you as it has been for me.

Warning: Hey guys hold your horses- you MUST tell people what strength of HP you are using for different treatments. As you know HP comes typically from 3% to 60% and these stronger ones can cause serious damage if used undiluted. So before you use HP Google about the dilution of it. Usually 3% is safe for most uses except you don't want to let it get into your eyes. 6% can be use for some treatments. Also you never want to digest any drug store brands, because they have other chemicals in them. If you for some reason try eating or drinking it; use food grade HP, which is 30 or 60 %, so you must dilute it a lot. So do be careful. And don't ask me where to get the food grade, because I don't know. Google it.

Just a thought for everyone using hydrogen peroxide (3% liquid) on HSV2 outbreaks.

The acne cream, benzoyl peroxide, is sold at most pharmacies. It is a thick cream and is sold in 5% and 10% concentrations. Maybe it would be easier to use for this purpose.

It will bleach your clothes and probably hair though... So wear white undies and be prepared to go orange or blonde! Who cares if it penetrates better though, right?
