Yea. Around new years and christmas I was partying it up, drinking etc, sharing bottles at parties with friends, and about a week later I got a huuuge cold sore on my lip that persisted for the next 4 months! It would not go away like a normal cold sore and I suspect it was a mild case of herpes. In the 4 months I tried hydrogen peroxide (*cure?* for angular chelitas) and abreva, an otc herpes medication that calmed it for a week, but it persisted and it still would not go away. It has effected my social life drastically as I cannot go on dates!! I started making my own colloidal silver, drank a mason jar of a low ppm mixture and the next day it was reduced by approx 50%! Amazing..... Over the last week I have been drinking more, and it has been going away. I have been drinking and applying topically.
I was taking valtrex for genital herpes for two years 500mg a day and it worked well to prevent outbreaks, it was not good for my body or health. I tried 100% colloidal silver, for six months, worked a little, then made my own 30x and took massive dosage, one pint a day, one cup in morning one in evening, and had been clear of outbreaks for one year, then mild outbreak, but I had cut my dose to a few mouth fuls of colloidal silver a day by then.
