Again started using it and didn't stop for 6 months. It went away for good. I get a minor sting when I forget to take it for couple of weeks and I take for a few days just to be sure and then nothing. One thing I can say with confidence is that after mid-2016 I have not seen an outbreak. I just bought it on iherb or Amazon based on price and went with the top reviewed product. Usually around 10 dollars and it lasts you a couple of months. I keep a couple of bottles in my medicine cabinet so I never run out. This site is god sent. Best of luck to everyone.

I'm on day 3 since the outbreak and my blisters are almost gone. I have discharge and discomfort but that's about it. I simply cannot believe my eyes, as I heard it takes at least 14 days to get rid of the outbreak.
Oil of oregano is quite potent people!

Buy yourself a bottle of Oil of Oregano (I get mine at GNC store, about $15/bottle)
Topical treatment: Mix 1 tbsp olive oil with 10 drops oil of oregano, using a cleam cotton swab use the oil mixture to treat areas with sores twice daily until they heal. (it burns like hell for about 5 minutes.. I use the oil of oregano straight without diluting it, but that's just me)
Oral Treatment: take 2 drops of straight oil of oregano twice a day orally, (tastes bad.. ) do this for atleast 6 weeks for the first time you use it.
Ongoing treatment: at the first signs of a breakout (itchy, pain, tingling etc) use the oil of orgeno topically, it should stop the outbreak from forming, take the oil orally if you think you are getting a breakout. The oil can also be rubbed into the skin at the base of the spine where the virus is believed to hybernate.
This treatment has been successful for myself (well over a year with no breakouts) and also my boyfriend. It speeds up the healing time of a current outbreak and can help prevent future ones.

I hooked up with my ex-boyfriend of one and a half years before he moved away for school. One night. Bad idea. I had of course imagined he had been seeing other people since we weren't together, but I never, EVER expected to contract STIs from him. He left me with both genital herpes and genital warts.
Now I also have had gastroinestinal problems since the age of 13, and it has left my immune system in horrible condition. I cannot stress how bad my outbreaks were. Every single one lasted for a minimum of three and a half weeks. I'd be clear for 3-4 days, then it would return again. Each outbreak was just as bad--if not worse--than the last. There would always be a period where the pain and itching was so severe that I was unable to walk. The warts were equally bad, and anytime I had them removed, they'd be back within a single week of the skin healing over. This went on for about 10 months, and it was definitely the worst period of my life. The emotional suffering is really the worst part of it all.
From my very first herpes rash I had begun taking mass amounts of supplements. Olive leaf extract, bitter melon, andrographis, echinacea, astralagus, ginger, Lysine, red marine algae, monolaurin, coconut oil... You name it, I've tried it. Even acupuncture and chinese herbs. It didn't seem to do much of anything. Applying tea tree oil, propolis, or melissa oil on the rash burned like hell, and would help with the pain and itching temporarily but the outbreaks were still just as long. One particular outbreak, I remember not taking anything, just to see what would happen. The rash persisted for nearly 7 weeks. Sorry for rambling but I really want to emphasize how bad my condition was.
I hadn't tried the oregano oil, as it was pretty expensive. I read that it tasted bad and I'm a total wimp. Can't even take cough medidcine I'm so sensitive to taste. On top of that, I believed my doctor when he told me there was no cure so I thought the whole Cure in a Cupboard thing was just a scam. One day I just decided why not give it a try, I've already thrown thousands down the drain in supplements so another couple hundred won't hurt.
Orderd super strength in a small bottle. Begun with the protocol, which was 5 drops under the tongue twice daily. At first, I had to do it in 1 or 2 drops at a time. My eyes would water and my mouth would start salivating like crazy from the burn, but it was by no means unbearable. Hold it under the tongue for as long as you can then wash it down with water. Over time, I increased my dosage. I had no bad side effects, but I believe that was due to me taking the olive leaf extract everyday. I got INSANE die-off reaction the first time I took that stuff, I was shaking with chills and fever and vomitting for 3 days with OLE.
As a side note, I read somewhere that a small bottle lasts you a long time. It barely lasted 2 weeks for me! Buy the bigger one if you're going to try it. I started upping it to 5 drops under the tongue 3 times a day within about 2 weeks. After a month, 4 times a day. Usually 8-10 drops. Experts can't seem to agree on a safe dosage for this stuff so just work your way up slowly. For the first 2 months of taking it, I noticed no improvement in my state. I got discouraged, but I remembered reading that it takes 1-3 months to heal so I stuck to it.
Just past the 2 month point, I suffered from the worst outbreak I have ever had. It covered a massive area, my genitals and it even went down a bit into my anal area. It was bright red. I remember crying myself to sleep one night the pain was so severe. But something surprising happened. It cleared up in about 8 days. That was the shortest outbreak I have ever had, and it was also my last.
That was 2 months ago, and to this day, I still have not had another outbreak. Oregano oil has been a miracle worker for me. I know a lot of people are going to question it being healed without a DNA test. I've gotten a few done in the first stages of my infection, and even though I was 100% positive I had genital herpes my tests would come back negative. (Both blood test and a swab of a lesion) So doctor's tests aren't as reliable as you may think.
I don't need a test to tell me I'm cured, I know I am. I continued to take the oregano oil for a full 4 months. Not one day did I miss a dosage, as I was completely determined to rid myself of this virus. My advice to you is to try it. And take it in LIQUID under the tongue if you want results!!! Best way to get it absorbed into your bloodstream. I'm no doctor, just an average 21 year old girl that suffered from the same problem as everyone else on this board. If it worked for me, I'm sure it can work for someone else. I wish good health and best of luck to all of you.

Some argue that Oil of Oregano works so well because it kills fungal cells and infections and many think herpes infection is similar to fungal ones therefore it would be hard if not close to impossible to kill it with traditional antibiotic prescriptions.
So, do your homework and find out what others have to say. Take the recommended dose orally and apply with a qt topically. Healing should begin immediately. Take the oil orally for up to 20 days to kill the core of the infection (Inside of you, usually within the nerves system, and you may never ever have to deal with this disease again.
Try combining with L-Lysine and ACV and stay away from red wine, chocolate, and citrus fruit during the time of the treatment. Alcohol, cigarettes and coffee would not be helpful either.
P.S. try to find a good source of oregano oil. Some brands are better then others. Again, do your homework if you want to be free from suffering. I wish you health and happiness and I send you love and blessings.

I was using Oregano oil for something unrelated during the beginning stages of a herpes outbreak. Those who have herpes recognize the pain that comes with the beginning of an outbreak. After taking the oregano oil, the outbreak was very mild and I continued the oregano oil for a few days until the outbreak disappeared altogether.
For the last 4 years or so, this has worked for me every single time I've had an outbreak. I've never had a severe or painful one since, as long as I take oregano oil for about 3 days from the onset of the symptoms.
Amount: I cannot take the taste of oregano oil, so I buy the oil and I fill up an empty capsule and swallow it with water, followed by a glass of water. I usually take one capsule, twice a day for about 3 days. At first I thought it was coincidence, but for me this is tried and true.
I hope this helps others.
I wonder if this would eventually kill the virus by taking it daily for a prolonged period of time?? However, I don't know how healthy it is to take Oregano oil on a daily basis.
Any feedback to these questions would be very much appreciated.

P.S. Make sure the Oil of Oregano you purchase comes from the Mediterranian. This is the only kind that contains the medicinal properties.
