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.
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
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.
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.

For genital herpies. You can get a thin needle and burn it with a match to sterilize it. You have to pucture the bubbles of herpies with one hand and have a tissue in the other hand to soke up the juice. You will also pore Hydrogen Peroxide over the open cuts so oxigen gets in there. You only use the needle method if your herpies has bubbled out. If you have open sores you just need to pore peroxide on it. This is not a cure but it help the healing fast.
All I want to know is... has anyone ever gone back to a doctor and test negative for HSV2 after being tested positive for HSV2? This and only this means you have been cured. You are not cured just by preventing outbreaks. You are just really good at dodging an attack. My GOAL!!! I have just had a positive blood test for HSV2. My plan is not to stop outbreaks but to stop the virus itself. Meaning the next time I get tested it will be negative. I don't know how long this will take but based on the knowledge I have gained about what type of virus this is, where it hides dormant in your body, and the many different theories people have on "CURING" herpes 1 & especially 2, it seems that the best way to start is with 35% Food Grade Peroxide. And obviously proper diet and immune system boosting vitamin regimen while only drinking DISTILLED WATER. Like I stated earlier I want to get rid of the virus not just the outbreaks. So far I have been reading miles and miles of claims of cures and all these claims are just stopping outbreaks not the virus. That is not enough for me. I have read only 1 and I mean only 1 person saying they have been tested negative after being tested positive. And he was using Oxygen Therapy with 35% food grade peroxide in Spain. Testing negative means, You can't pass what you don't have.
So, here I am, a 45 year old woman who has just had my first herpes outbreak (OB). I was humiliated and in denial for about an hour when I came across this website and found hope and inspiration here. Based on hundreds of letters of good advice, this is the protocol I used to alleviate all the symptoms of the OB within 5 days. (Day 1)The first night I packed organic ACV soaked cotton balls in the folds of my privates. This stung initially, but I just waited it out. I slept this way for over 8 hours. When I woke, the affected spots were bright white. (Days 2-3) I started dabbing 3% hydrogen peroxide (HP) cotton balls liberally to affected area multiple times during the day, as well as "packing" the area with HP cotton balls at night. The "tickling" sensation lasted only three days and each day was significantly less than the day before. (Days 4-5) I continued using HP at least twice daily for a total of 5 days. On the 5th day following the initial symptom OB I saw my Nurse Practitioner and she was unable to even find evidence of the outbreak and said that I had done "a good job at drying it out." (Oh, I also drank about 3 Tbsp. ACV daily, and large doses of homemade colloidal silver 5/ppm, maybe 2 cups over 5 days.)
Good Luck, you're not alone.

I have used this site for all kinds of aliments. I found something that worked so well I felt I owed to all the other sufferers out there to post. I have tried many things for herpes on this site, some with a little success. I have spent thousands trying different options. I got this about five years go, however it didn't manifest until around two years ago. It progressively got worse. I went from an outbreak every few mos to every month almost. I was at my wits end but I never lost hope. I knew God would have an answer. I had tried everything except for a few very expensive options. I would check the web periodically to see if something new had popped up. I found a few blogs recommending Hypericum mysorense (2pills a day) and nosodes (5 drops 3x a day)I had nothing to loose. I started using them both two months ago and all symptoms vanished almost immediately. I still had small amounts of sugar and alcohol and I was still good. This has been my miracle. Ali
I caught herpes about 14 years and went crazy trying to find a cure. I tried olive leaf, prunella vulgaris, Ozone, Red MArine Algae, DMSO, Hydrogen peroxide, Acyclovir and a whole lot more.
Ultimately I read this scientific paper called Anti-viral plants of the nilgiri hills that said that Hypericum Mysorense completely suppressed the herpes virus and went crazy trying to find it. To cut a long story short I found an online supplier and took the herb as recommended for 6 months straight 2 pills a day and 4 if I felt any symptoms coming on.
I HAVE NOT HAD ONE SINGLE OUTBREAK IN over 5 years now and this truly is the best natural treatment for herpes if not a cure we have been looking for. You will see that it stops herpes in its tracks the minute you take it and also stops all future outbreaks if you take it long enough. Thank you for the great website because nature really does cure.
I use a 8 to 1 mixture of Gylcerin and Iodine Tincture (colored) to treat my genital herpes. I find it works very very well. I dont really know how the combination work so effectively. I know that both ingredients have good anitbacterial, anitfungal, and germicidal properties. I cant find much about the mixture online. Maybe someone should do a study..

PRUNELLA VULGARIS is easyly availible in the chinese medical shop. its dry dark brown or black in color.those who don't know where to get it from.
yesterday my penis was so very swollen. i use a combination of iodine to stop the itch and Prunella Vulgaris is a herb which is availible anywhere in the world. its very cheap in singapore only $1/ for 100 grams. i boil it and drink it every 4 hours and also apply it on my penis. 1 day later the swell is gone the itch almost gone and the boils gone no break-up of painfull wounds. i also took 2 pills of grape seed extract and neem extract. i belieive that the iodine and Prunella Vulgaris is the most effective to fight the herpes viurs. ipdine will burn about 2 minutes so apply a little by little on small areas. this will work a wonder.wish you best. i am trying other herps and keep you posted.
Ivy-Dry (dual acting spray purchased from Walgreen Drug Store 6 FL OZ bottle for about $8.00) This product relieves itching, oozing, and weeping associated with minor skin irritations from poison ivy, oak, and sumac. It also cured Herpes outbreaks.
Herpes outbreaks have lesions or small blisters. I have found that if I use Ivy-Dry on these lesions they will dry up and start to heal within 24 hours. Remember that this product is an external skin protectant that relieves the itching, oozing and weeping associated with minor skin irritations and rashes. After the healing process begins I see some dry dead skin begin to peel from the affected area of treatment. I would not recommend to over use this product as it will dry out your skin.(Normally two applications will clear up my out break. I spray the affected area once at night and once again in the morning. I also used this product after intercourse to prevent outbreaks ) Before using any product read the label first !
I have also started taking one capsule of red marine algae daily and I am outbreak free!
I used to have outbreaks faithful every month. Especially around my period & worse with higher amounts of STRESS, & CAFFEINE. Honest to goodness, this works...!
Whenever I feel an outbreak coming on, I buy Kale at the supermarket, rinse it, and eat a leaf (raw). Twice a day for 2 days makes it virtually non-existant. If I've already broken out, I eat a leaf or two and in about an hour, maybe two- I've forgotten they were there; No itching or pain from lesions. The next 2 days, lesions are shrinking and almost dried out- day 3 DONE and on with LIFE!
I now eat Kale at least once a month, especially around "breakout time" and I don't "break out". I do also watch how much caffeine I take in and have just about eliminated most nuts out of my diet. If I go overboard on Arganine's, I load up on more Kale.
Hope this helps.
I have a question for everyone.
Did anyone pick up the book: Natural Cures, "they" don't want you to know about by Kevin Trudeau?
I ask because I picked up his book many years ago because I had heard that he was going to publish the "cure" to herpes. I read the book and never did his cure. Today I was went back to his book for his cure, because I figure what the hell am I waiting for, I've been living with this this for 20 years.
So my question is not only did anyone read this book but has anyone tried his regime for the cure:
Cleanse (From his chapter 6)
Larrea, red marine algae, lysine, hydrogen peroxide and DMSO.
(He states this as the "cure")
From what I know of this disease, it lives in our spinal cord. Stress will make the outbreaks occur more often and make the outbreaks worse. Rubbing the area, breaking the blisters open, spreads the blisters, (like poison ivy). But Oxygen kills it. Hence why he states hydrogen peroxide to use.
I have taken Valtrex and the outbreaks last 5 days, less when using hydrogen peroxide at the same time. (I pour the hydrogen peroxide into the lid and hold the lid over and against the blister for a least a minute, if not longer so that it is sitting in the liquid. I then pour the cap full over the blister and let air dry. It stops the pain.
I do not believe taking a bath in hydrogen peroxide and water is going to help you because you have watered it down. And I don't believe that hydrogen peroxide would be a good thing to get a lot of inside of the genital cavity for a woman, I would think that could cause a yeast infection. (But these are my opinions).
My breakouts have gotten less often, I believe because I try very hard not to get stressed even using prescription drugs to help, like Ativan, when necessary. I think they have also become less often because I have had this disease for a long time. I did use the generic form of Valtrex and it did not work and caused the outbreak to last for weeks so please if you are having troubles with the generic form ask for the name brand, it does cost more but it is worth every penny.
In the mean time, has anyone used the regime described from the book?
