toothpaste?

Recommended Posts

bcpskull

I read on another forum that toothpaste "does wonders." Well, I had an OB starting last night and before I went to bed I tried the toothpaste. This morning I checked everything out and the swelling is down, but still barely apparent, and there are no signs of the little bumps that appeared last night. I have reapplied the toothpaste so I will se what happens later.

Never heard that remedy

And I have had this gift for 22 years.

I wonder if the brand and type of toothpaste matter?

As I posted in one of the other threads one of the "herbal " herpes treatments Medavir is stannous fluoride a common ingredient in toothpaste. There is some anecdotal evidence from dentists and a few lab studies indicating that it may kill herpes. I would think any toothpaste that does not contain flouride is probably no more effective than placebo

I still had an OB last night, however it wasnt as bad. Swelling was much less and no stinging, itching etc. I still continued the toothpaste last night and this morning. As for now, slight swelling and no signs of an OB...:D

The other forum where I received the information from, was from a female. So, I suppose so...being a male it hasnt hurt me. There is some slight tingling at first, but not painful by any means.

Is it any particular type of toothpaste or some specific ingredient in them?

Worth a try. Even if it doesn't work, at least one will be minty-fresh down there. :-)

Can one apply it with an electric toothbrush, do you think? Again, :-)

Thanks, this post has made me smile (even if that was not the intention)

My understanding is that the ingredient in the toothpast is the sodium lauryl sulfate that kills the sore. I haven't seen anything about flouirde helping. My reading on the subject said that HSV is in a type of "envelope" and it cannot be killed until the envelope is destroyed. The sodium lauryl sulfate removes the "envelope" and kills the virus, also preventing it from spreading to other areas. I rarely get outbreaks but I just got my first one in three years. I am going to apply toothpaste before bed and I will update if there are positive results. So far I have applied apple cider vinegar and hydrogen peroxide. I have been putting it on a cotton ball and bandaging it over the sore. I think that it has prevented spreading because of less skin rubbing but it still isn't working fast enough for me.

Medavir costs around $80 as compared to Flo-Gel or Gel-Kam at around $20 for the same amount. Medavir is a rip off. If the toothpaste works, stick with that. It's obviously cheaper. I might try it for my next OB.

I just discovered my facewash has Sodium Laureth Sulfate (the same as Lauryl?) as the second ingredient after water.

"CVS daily pore cleanser" just an fyi if anyone is interested.

      Hello.... hope this message finds you well... Pay attention to your diet , there's a young lady on YouTube called Laureen HD... follow her sh is awsome...  Doctors never told me about diet part of it... so peanuts and other junk food I love had me experiencing minor outbreaks which take forever to heal , I'm not on suppression med which I decided just to do... makes no sense to take 12 natural pills when u can take 1. ..  watch your coffee,  sugar and nuts intake ( no pun intended) The after care remedies are good.

      Yes. I have had good experience with CBD oil over the past few months. Here is my "routine". When I notice the first signs of an outbreak, pop the blisters with a tissue, then apply 1 drop of 10% CBD oil rubbing it into the popped blisters for ten seconds or so. Then apply another drop twice a day (morning and evening) for as many days as needed.

      Healing shows progress even overnight. Usually the redness is gone within 1 or 2 days, and the blisters are tiny holes (hard to even see) within 2 to 3 days. Totally healed within 2 to 4 days.

      This has been the fastest healing of the many other approaches I have tried over the years.

      Ben 21 yaşındayım ve 7 ay önce herpes ile enfekte oldum. sevgilimden enfekte Herpes ağzında vardı, ama iyileşmişti ve bir oral seks yapmıştı. Bu enfekte. İkimizin de bir şoku vardı. Bu şekilde enfekte olduğunu bilmiyorduk. İlişkiye 7 ay geçti, ama cinsel organları bulaşmadı. Sürekli üzülüyorum ve bir saldırı geçiriyorum. Her gün ağlarım. hayatım mahvolmuş .. artık yaşamak istemiyorum. Bu gençlerle yıllarca nasıl yaşayacağımı bilmiyorum. Sadece ölmek ve ondan kurtulmak istiyorum Çok üzgünüm ve şanssızım .. Yazım hataları için üzgünüm çünkü bu bir antropoloji değil
