Hydrogen peroxide

Swub

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 :)

The Demiurge

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!!

Positive thoughts

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!

      I've had neg swabs but I am sure you'll get it. Follow the process. I haven't read the thread in exact detail, but if you have documentation of doctors mishandling your case when you get/ if you get a poss inform them in writing as well as the medical board I think.  Under diagnosis is as problematic as false pos and reducing transmission is good.

      @WilsoInAusi wish you were right.  you can't say that with such confidence having never met me though.  I had one MD look at my sore on Sunday @ 8pm, said it was not looking herpetic but to come back in the morning.  I came back in the morning and he said it looked exactly like a cold sore/HSV1 based on the changes / "ablative look" to the skin around the lip.  The Dermatologists have never seen me with a sore until yesterday, too, and had only seen pictures.  They're used to the classic HSV2 look that shows up in Google Images. I think the swab test will be definitive - we broke open the sore and sent it off within  48 hours of appearing.  I'm also waiting for my 13 week IGG type specific HerpeSelect Immunoblot any day now using RequestATest - LabCorp.

      Not really wanting to call Terry.  I'll be checking the term anecdotal as I agree it may not be the best term. Maryland University seems to disagree and there was a researcher looking into random transmissions off poss objects in the eighties.

      There are two cases of torts in the USA in regards to transmission from surfaces. These require a 50% probability in causation and would be medically confirmed. I would say the reason it is less documented as people just deal with it and get on with their lives or it happens more frequently in lower socio economic groups that all just go into denial.

      I'm collecting the less than usual experiences Wilson, and not all professionals agree with Terry. These myths in my experience do not always get around with no basis.

      The thread was more about antibodies any ways and I was just mostly sharing my experience of reading  those who claim a neg IgG. I am sorry I veered from that here.

      One person I have read here claim neg IgG. And years ago there were two people who also claimed neg IgG.

      It is up to each person to do their own research before they spend money on products.
