The blister that won't go away

Recommended Posts

Strongurl

I have had genital herpes for 4 years now and am experiencing the most stubborn OB since my first one. I have had one blister now for over a week and have been taking 1500 mg of Valtrex and it is refusing to disappear. It is not really painful, just annoying. My lymph node is swollen on the same side as the OB. Any suggestions? I have read something in the past about applying acetone (nail polish remover) topically may help??? Seems dangerous? Any input would be helpful.

I'm not sure about nail polish remover, but I have heard a lot about Oil of Oregano helping. It burns though, so I've seen it recommended to mix it with a little aloe and apply it, unless you're prepared for the burn. :) Also, Lysine supplements are supposed to help it heal. :) Good luck!
