Second OB, no meds.

Has anyone found any home remedies that might make an outbreak go away a little quicker, or even something to find relief from it? Lack of health insurance can be a pain in the butt, and I make just over the limit to go to the free clinic otherwise that's where I'd be headed. Any advice would be MUCH appreciated.

bunn,

check out the topics on the right!>>>>>>> they will advise you on home remedies. as for myself, I cleanse the sores with alcohol or purell with aloe...burns like hell, but seems to make it heal faster. epsom salts baths help as well, but they will dry out the skin not in ob mode, so get plenty of lotion for your other parts...I dont have health insurance,.

but can deal with paying for the otc stuff...hope this helps

After I urinate, I dab the affected area with one of those wet wipes. It helps to keep the area clean and free from any excess bacteria. It seems to reduce the severity and the time to heal.

That sounds like a good idea, great except when it hurts to the touch. Which is where I'm at right now.....lame. I'll remember that though :D Thank you!

there's also something called fast results you can get at a cvs or rite aid.. i think it's $30.. I never used it as I have not had a second ob yet, but am prepared to try that when and if (fingers crossed) it happens. It's in the aisle with the preg test, condoms, etc.

Hmmm that is definitely something I'll have to keep on hand if it works. I really appreciate the advice...and I'll keep you updated on whether or not it does for me. :)

      @WilsoInAus thanks for the clarification. I am currently taking into account all possibilities that i might encounter, since my fiance is positive HSV-1. I am preparing myself for the future, if I however eventually get infected from him. Im on the brink . We will have an appointment with a Doctor on friday, to justify more about this and I am so anxious of knowing what the Dr will say. I am scare it might effect my decision of marrying him. How I wish this virus could be kill, how I wish life hasn't be this cruel to us. The day for us to tie the knot is just around the corner, everything had been prepared and we are tested with this news. Im showing my support to him right now but deep down, Im sooo scared. It's truly an adventure

      Note that it’s not an infection as we know it the eye, these are caused by bacteria. Sometimes though the virus will attack the cornea and cause issues. It is estimated about 1 in 50,000 people per year will suffer some vision impairment from HSV-1. However these people are almost always not treated with antivirals where success appears to be over 90% for preventing permanent damage.

      Hi @patpat I encountered same situation like yours. I really want to know what is your next step. Did you finally get married? How is your life now? Any advice?  I know this is an old thread but this is related to me. Would be so much relieve to be able to talk to someone in the same shoe. Hope you still buzzing around honeycomb

      BHT has helped me soooo much! When I first got infected my outbreaks were constant .. one would heal up and there comes another ... it was terrible . I was so fuxking depressed and miserable. I cut out the “trigger foods” took vitamin c and lysine .. drank apple cider vinegar .. nothing worked until BHT!!! Now that I take BHT i rarely have Outbreaks. If I do it’s because I sometimes forget and skip taking it .. or I eat some trigger food + forget the Bht .. but even then my outbreaks are SOOOO a mild compared to before . I’ve had outbreaks that have disappeared in a day . Sometimes I up my dosage on BHT when I do have a mild outbreak , and apply topically. It really has been such a blessing to find out about BHT
