Tea Tree Oil

Recommended Posts


I was going to wait longer to post this up, but I am super excited with the results!

My friend pulled out a book called "Prescription for Nutritional Healing" by Balch & Balch, and read some recommendations for treatment of Herpes. One of the recommendations was Tea Tree Oil, a natural antiseptic, and to lightly dab on the blisters several times a day.

The first time I tried this, I only did it once (yesterday evening). I did a test on another part of my skin to see if this irritated me (test being mixing a small sample with another oil, i used olive), and it didn't. So I thought to do it full strength-- it BURNED more than i expected! After an hour of waddling on the bed, I felt much cleaner, and at ease. It really helped with the iritation, but not so much the itching.

This morning, I go to check it again and I see a HUGE difference on my largest blister. That blister was completely open and about my pinky length. Today, about half of it was closed. and I was able to walk around more comfortably, and I'm tolerating my cotton underwear. However this time, I diluted the solution with water (as the book recommended), but I still feel that nice cool, tingling sensation but without that gosh darn burning feeling.

      Coming back to report that after vaccinations in May and July, today I have one vesicle. Called the doctor and will report back later. Slightly pessimistic at this point.

      I think I need to treat this as an ocd thought (that I've got herpes) and not check myself compulsively, not seek constant reassurance from doctors and the internet, just try and forget about it. Re disclosure, I would tell future partners that i could have hsv but I don't know, all the visual examinations and tests I've had have come back negative but there's still a possibility that i have herpes. Then they can decide whether to take the risk. I always assume someone is positive for everything unless there are tests to prove otherwise. I don't do casual relationships so always get a full sexual health screening with my new partner so we can both be safe. But they could have herpes and not know as it's not routinely checked for. It's a risk for all parties involved. I spoke to herpes.org.uk helpline and Marion told me that blood tests are routinely bringing up false positives/negatives and that having the virus doesn't predict when and where you're going to have an ob. I therefore wouldn't trust the result of the test and would be repeatedly getting tested, as I did when my hiv ocd was really bad. That was a hugely stressful and anxious time and I don't want to go through that again!! Especially for a virus that can't kill you!! So I think I'm going to have to live with the uncertainty of having herpes obs and avoid sexual contact whenever I feel sore down below if/when I'm in a relationship.  Being on this forum is just exacerbating my Ocd, so I think that I should stop posting as it's reassurance-seeking. Wishing you all the best and thank you all for your help, advice and support. Remember - it's just a virus that billions of people have and doesn't make us dirty or unworthy of love or a good life. Stay safe and well xx

      And I’ll help you up until the second coming. I think this is an unhealthy dose of imaginitis as far as herpes is concerned. Wouldn’t you agree?
    • WilsoInAus
      Yes man that’s correct. I mean we don’t really want more people in the delusional room with mirrors that see nothing, do we?
    • WilsoInAus
      There’s nothing visually or in what you describe that is suggestive of herpes. See your doctor if you have concerns, there’s plenty of things on the list of possibilities here.
