What's working for me.

Recommended Posts

This is day two of my coldsore.

Usually they last, roughly, a week--oozing out near the end of the week.

Well, last night I went nuts and bought everything in the world at wal-mart.

I purchased:

--Lysine

--Zinc

--Herplex (that I know of, Natrum muriaticum, Rhus toxicodendron, & Borax are suppose to be good for outbreaks. I looked up the rest of the active ingredients and it sounds helpful.)

--Immune support tea (with echinacea, vitamin c, zinc)

--Earl Grey tea

--Dissa-peer (25mg thiamine, 20mg zinc, 325mg lysine)

--Purell (couldn't find it with aloe though which is disappointing since aloe is suppose to be helpful too)

Last night I took 500mg of lysine, 1 dissa-peer, 3 Herplex, and put some purell on.

I woke up and I've noticed it seems to be scabbing over already :o:D

I plan to take 1000mg of lysine, 1 dissa-peer, 3 Herplex, apply Purell, and drink some of the immune support tea sometime this evening.

This later tonight I'll take what I took last night.

I suppose I won't try the earl grey compress right now. I'm still not sure how much zinc I need to be taking during an outbreak. I'm a bit excited that the healing process has sped up a little. Maybe by the end of a week it'll be gone instead of weird-oozy! ;)

Hi PoorLips,

I'm not sure about the amount of zinc but they do recommend at least 1250 mg of l-lysine to prevent OB's and up it to at least 1875 mg during OB's. Some here will take as much as 3000 mg during an OB. So I would definitely increase the l-lysine.

I felt an outbreak coming on and took 5 Herplex as directed and nothing else. Took the same dosage twice in 8 hour intervals, the symptoms subsided with no outbreak. This is the first time I have used it, and it seemed to work for me. I will take 3 more 5 pill doses to be sure.

No side effects noted.

I am uncertain as to when you posted this but I'd like an update when possible if the product has helped you.

I believe it helped me but I am not 100% certain as I was also taking other things at the same time. I know that there is no cure-all method but I would like to know others' experiences with it.

      @srinivas thank you for the suggestion. Are you on antivirals? How long have you had HSV? How well do you feel now that you are taking the supplements?

      It doesnt really mean much yet. They still dont know if the herpes is taking advantage of a diseased brain or causing the disease. Furthermore, there is evidence that Alzheimer's might be caused by oral spirochete disease and even Lyme. Many of you could have oral Spirochetes but the Lyme and is less likely. https://globallymealliance.org/pathogen-cause-alzheimers-disease/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5008232/ https://newsblog.drexel.edu/2016/02/10/do-infections-cause-alzheimers-disease/   Of course it could be both! Maybe having hsv-1 and oral spirochetes quadruples the risk.  In my opinion the spirochete theory sounds more likely and its hard to dismiss neurosurgeons and caretakers getting Alzheimers from a disease that was previously thought to be non contagious. I'd worry more about Spirochetes.

      I wonder if people in the military are tested for hsv, because the general public isn’t. You have to specifically ask for it and many doctors don’t even see the point because it’s “so common”. It’s very possible he has it and has no symptoms or very mild random symptoms. Sorry to hear what you’re dealing with. It seems like women’s symptoms are worse than men’s.

      No that’s not the issue at all. The absolute vast majority of nerve pain is not caused by herpes. Hence it cannot be used to reverse engineer a diagnosis of herpes. That is exceptinally dangerous and we must do all we can encourage proper diagnosis.
