I was diagnosed with gen. herpes about 6 months ago..

a few days ago i had an out break and for the first time they were not down below.. they were on my face..

how embarrassing to have to go out in public..

a few people I know jokingly said I had herpes (not knowing that I actually did)..

I told everybody it was a rash or an allergic reaction..

anyways I had to find something fast.. to make them go away..

I tried toothpaste when they first showed up(VERY BAD IDEA) .. It made them feel better but it also made them worse because the toothpaste held in moisture..

so then I tried Bactine.. It didn't seem to be doing anything.. but it didn't make it worse either..

Finally, I tried calamine lotion.. THIS WAS THE BEST IDEA EVER!! almost right away I saw a major difference.. I use the calamine lotion skin protectant.. not the itch relief kind because the skin protectant is more potent..

the Calamine lotion dries the soars out almost instantly!! on the bottle it says "Helps dry the oozing and weeping of poison ivy, and poison oak".. so I thought id give it a try and it helped me tremendously!

but I am unsure of what to do after they are dried... as for now i am still using the calamine lotion..

When my little girl had chicken pox (herpes lite)...they said don't use calamine lotion as it can make scars, because it dries the sores out. They recommended band aid heal gel it works pretty well and it doesn't sting.

I saw these the other day when I was in the pharmacy...they looked pretty awesome...although unfortunately mine are on my vjajyjay so I can't stick one on and look like the cool kids :-( (well, I can I suppose but it would be my little secret!)

I usually use betadine (which is an iodine product...on OBs down below and it works a treat on zits too) it is a little yellow...so if its on your face probably not so suitable for day wear this season. But who knows if we work the runways yellow will be the new black before we know it ;-)

Hi Sanner,

Do you know how there using this mixture? i've been using epizyn (zinc) and a purell equivelent with good results, and have been thinking of maybe mixing up a concoction. This mix you have pointed out seems similair and would be interested in any more info you may have. I've tried google, but not come up with much

thanks

      That's some new info for me you mentioned about talking valtrex during the first month of infection. When I got mine, it was after heavy nights of partying (that I don't normally do) in the southern islands so my immunity was definitely dead. I was still a student back then.. I didn't start Acyclovir until a month after or so.  For mixing BHT with coconut oil, I just added them together into a glass pipette bottle and put the jar in a bowl of almost boiling water. It worked very easily to create a 250mg/ml solution.  I might give BHT another try, I quit if after 2 weeks because I didn't get any effects from it. Might give it another go at 1g/day.  Root canalled tooth.. is this because you get the outbreaks in your mouth? I also have a root canalled tooth but the OBs are genital.

      Yes, it was affecting my thyroid, I can feel it swell when the infection comes on.  It is known as hashimoto's.  The immune system inadvertently attacks the thyroid tissue in a collateral damage type effect.  It can be caused by any of the 8 types of herpes virus.  I believe that my infection is in my vagus nerve.  Anyways, it has been hell, but I have it to a manageable level now.  Steven also said that the recurring infection could be due to a root canalled tooth.  I had a root canal job done on a molar but never got around to putting a crown on it, so that could be causing some reactivation as well.  I am planning to pull it out soon.

      Thanks Quest, so I just googled this and it appears that heating does break it down.  I have been heating at the lowest heat that my gas burner will burn at, and just to the point where I can get it to dissolve, but it appears I have been inactivating a percentage of the bht.  Will have to figure out a better way.   I think heating to 100 degrees celsius likely will not inactivate too much.  According to this study, heating it to 175 degrees for 2 hours only inactivated 15-30% of the bht.  I think I read the way to heat it was inside a jar placed into a pot of boiling or simmering water.  Will try making a batch that way.  https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11746-000-0147-9

      Valtrex is worthless against my strain anyways, it does next to nothing, and it irritates my kidneys, so for some strains it will do nothing period.  It is criminal that there are vaccines that have been developed that can't get funding from big pharma.  Seriously hate big pharma.

      To save everyone time in translating, the article is about Trivalent and contains nothing “new” to share.  However, fingers crossed on this one :-)
