Oscar, I know BHT has worked for some people with the herpes virus, but, is it possible to have a reaction to this. I have been using it for about 3 weeks now and just now, as soon as I took the pill I started itching & then appeared a bump on the site at the base of my spine. Top of my buttocks area... I only take one pill at bedtime. I suffer quite badly with this virus, every month... Any suggestions?
