I have found aloe vera gel to be very effective at healing sores usually overnight or in a day or two - apply several times a day if possible. L-Lysine as a pill also helps me as does L-lysine cream applied topically. Lemon balm cream also helps. Lemon balm TEA helps oral sores. Lemon balm is a known herpicide, tho I don't see it on this site.
I have had GH for many years,but usually an outbreak only 2 or 3 times a decade. Upon moving to Indonesia, my outbreaks increased to 5 or 6 a year. After racking my little brain, the only thing I do different here is use SOY OIL for cooking.
Any imput or ideas,from anyone?
I have found that fresh Aloe Vera, both orally and topigraphicaly, seem to have an immediate effect, healing sores, burning, and the funky overall feeling.
I will change my cooking oil,but again, any ideas would be welcome.
Thanks and good luck to ALL.!
