Overuse of Tea Tree Oil?

Recommended Posts


Has anyone had any bad experiences w tea tree oil?

I found it to be more effective than Oil of Oregano when used topically, so i use it when I have an outbreak.

This time, however, the outbreak seems to be spreading, and the tea tree oil is having no effect. Not only that, but I'm having a constant burning sensation that I have not had before when experiencing an outbreak. Could this be a result of the tt oil, or is it just a more intense nerve pain than I am used to?

Make sure to throw away any lip balm or chap stick you are using the second you feel a cold sore. The germs get on the chap stick and then spread over the rest of your mouth when you use it. Also make sure to keep your fingers away from your lips so that you don't spread it. Make sure to be taking your vitamins, especially your vitamin C and Zinc because these help combat the virus, especially if you're taking them before you get an outbreak.

      If your eye was affected by HSV you'd be in intense pain and you'd be in the hospital on an antiviral drip.  It is likely a coincidence of timing, and something that you shouldn't overthink.  Definitely worth getting checked anyway since the eye is a sensitive area.

      I found this website today. You can now pre order Viblok but no potential delivery date is given. The company is in Florida and I called but got a recorded message. https://www.viblok.com/

      Here's something interesting. You can now pre-order Viblok.  However, the website does not indicate when it will be available. https://www.viblok.com/

      Hey all. I had an STD check while pregnant with my now 3 yo and it was perfectly clean, hadn’t had another one until a few months ago   I was sexually assulted about 4 months ago. Because of that I asked for all STD testing. My first HSV 2 IGG score came back at 4.00, I requested another 2 weeks later and it’s now a 3.22 IGG. Should I take this as for sure positive or would it warrant a WB at all? Is it normal for numbers to go down like that?   Ive had NO symptoms whatsoever, at any time     Also, condoms, guys what are the best ones that feel as natural as possible?? Any ideas?
