This is the ONLY thing that has ever worked (and believe me I have tried EVERYTHING), but you HAVE to stay with it and do it everyday. 1 lemon in 1.5 liters of water throughout the day. Drink with a straw to protect tooth enamel. Drink additional water with electrolytes to stay hydrated. It is the only thing that cleared up a month and a half long flare that nothing would help. After a few days of lemon water, the flare was gone and never came back. People say it's the vitamin C, but I've tried enormous amounts of intravenous Vitamin C that still didn't help 100%. I think it's the fact that even though lemons are acidic, they make the body alkaline after digested. This is a miracle treatment. Is it a cure? Probably not, but a miracle treatment t that keeps it away nonetheless. I don't have a sex partner so I don't have anything to worry about there, but the outbreaks are incredibly painful. I hope this help helps someone. Good luck!
I drink lemon water to prevent the outbreaks, still outbreak free. I did have another minor OB when I started slacking on drinking the lemon water. I am 100% sure this is helping me. I have never used it directly on a OB though.
For GH, drinking Lemon Water every day is the only thing that has worked for me.
Sounds simple but I definitely has been a miracle for me.
