Hydrogen peroxide

7 posts in this topic

I was just passing and I thoght I'd post about the recent sucess I've had.

For about 6 years I've been getting coldsores on my hand. For the last 4 years I've been on a constant course of Acyclovir as the outbreaks got so bad and Zovirax did nothing.

I've been doing some research and in January this year I decided I didn't want to be on medication for the rest of my life so I stopped taking it. Whenever I feel that tingle I put Hydrogen preoxide on my finger and I haven't had a single outbreak since January!

It's definitley worth a try. I hope that helps somebody :)

It helps

There's a site NOMOREOUTBREAKS.com that promotes this treatment. It alliviates some of symptoms and depending on how severe an outbreak, it can prevent some sores from forming. I suggest you research the site. But I can answer any questions. I've tried everything, What works for me is Valtrex suppressive and Hydrogen peroxide topically.

could this work with genital herpes?

i realize your post is from 2004, however, I've just been diagnosed with GHSV1 and well...unfortunately I'm in the midst of not only ANOTHER G-OB but also my first oral/labial OB. I heard about HP as a treatment from my bf. The next day at work, some lady came to the pharmacy raving about all the benefits of food-grade HP - she had started taking it for her diabetes, not only did it lower her bloodsugars enough that she could come off her myriad of medications but it also put her rheumatoid into remission and in the past year hasn't had a single cold sore. I did research that night. Not a whole lot of info. But i have started spraying pharmaceutical grade HP on my sores. I'm on day 2 of HP use. I'd love to get some food grade stuff and try it orally.

This particular G-OB I was sooooo sore. It was the first time my urine really irritated the lesions. After just 2 sprays (3 hours apart) of HP to my genitals I could urinate without wanting to a)pass-out, b)scream, c) wish for death. I will definitely continue to use HP for future breakouts. Maybe even use it on a daily basis to prevent them. I hear that if you bathe in a dilute H2O2 solution a few times a week you can treat all sorts of ailments. somehow it increases circulating O2...dont' know how legit, but worth a try. I'm desperate. I've been having OB nearly every 2 weeks!!

That is interesting because when I first had my ob, I was using hp to hopefully keep it clean. I used it right before I went to the doc and got valtrex so I'm not sure if it did anything. I'm going to research this more. Hp is really pretty amazing!

      Hi @Blahdittilyblah It's definitely a very hard and awkward situation. What I find myself now doing with people/friends that make fun of Herpes is launching into a whole speech about statistics. lol.  That throws the person waay off and I eventually hear 'I didn't know any of that' or 'you mean it's possible you and I could have herpes?' and I always respond with 'yep, we both could and you wouldn't even know it.'  This helps twofold for me 1. People don't like to hear someone lecture them when they are trying to be funny so they will never joke about it in front of me again  2. I've now educated them on H and will hopefully make them aware they need to actually get tested for it.  To the second part of your post.. I would say your friend should at least find a counselor or H support group to speak with about her diagnosis. While it's awesome you are there to support her, you can't be her only source of help.  It will eventually wear you down and prevent you from coping with your own diagnosis. There are a lot of H groups out there (especially in major cities) or recommend her coming to this forum. We are a great bunch here and would love to offer our support to your friend too

      Great post!  Thank you so much for sharing! I wish I could give everyone on this site a giant hug and tell them they are beautiful and worthwhile regardless of having H

      Dang that must be what I have then. You must've swabbed it to confirm it was HSV, huh? Is it 1 or 2?   Do you have any photos? I tried to take one of mine but my camera phone doesn't pick up the detail well.
    • thebear123
      Could you please describe how it presents itself on both your face and genitals? Both the feeling and look?

      Really?!  I was thinking about applying it to the spot on my scalp.. I did just get some new hair conditioner that's infused with mint and tea tree oil and have been putting it right on my spot; it seems to be less itchy and has gotten smaller.   I'm gonna try the tea tree oil on it tonight before bed. I bed it burns like a mother though!

      HSV1 and HSV2 can be in either location although HSV1 prefers oral and HSV2 prefers genital. A large percentage of new genital herpes cases are in fact genital HSV1 transmitted through oral sex by a partner with an oral HSV1 infection. The other way around (transmission of a genital HSV2 infection to a partner's mouth to become oral HSV2) is very uncommon although technically possible.

      I had my first ob 3 weeks ago which is how I found out.  My doctor took a swab from the area. it tested positive for hsv2 and negative for hsv-1.   I read on the cdc website that it can be transmitted orally and it's very confusing because the info provided isn't specific to 1 or 2.  I just want to make sure I'm getting the right info

      I had the swap testing done.. yes we had both I wasn't thinking of anything about it knowing we've been together for so long I don't keep track of our sexual activities 
    • WilsoInAus
      You are right in that contact with your genital area is required for there even to be a chance of transmission. What testing showed positive for you, did it indicate an older infection?
    • WilsoInAus
      Hi @Motherhen32 just a few thoughts that may help. First, how did the diagnosis come about, did you have a swab and blood test and what were the results? Do you have vaginal sex and/or receive oral sex in the week before the lesions appeared? It is important to know that your partner may very well have had herpes long before any relationship with you. The fact that you have just been infected is alone not a cause to question fidelity. Talk to your doctor about options, including taking antivirals for the remainder of your pregnancy.
