Any one tried tooth paste?

Recommended Posts

TheResistance

I am currently experiencing one of the worst out breaks I've had in a long time. The worst part of it all is that its Facial, so there is no hiding it. It looks HORRIBLE. At this point I am afraid to go out side. Worst part of it all is that I am unemployed and I will need to go on interviews soon.

I have tried every thing. I just ran out of valtrax 1000mg. (generic, going to switch to name brand when i get more money). I have been taking oil of oregano(internal and topical), vitimine C 8grams per day, and just started lysine and echinacea.

I read that tooth paste helps speed healing. I tried it for the first time and jesus christ it burned like nothing Ive ever felt before. It burned so bad that I had to wash it off after 5 min. I simply could not take it any more. It may be a good sign that its working. Oh maybe I had some residue oil of oregano still on my face.

I am going to repeat the tooth paste topical tomorrow and again before bed.

Hopefully that and the supplements that I am taking will force the virus back in remission.

Has any one had any success with tooth paste? while I wont say the brand name I will say its white. I've read that the gel tooth paste are not effective.

Toothpaste is good at drying sores out and I assume it's safe. I've used toothpaste on a hickey before (never a cold sore) and it made it heal quick! I strongly suggest including zinc in your supplements as well as using it on your OB and areas of infection daily. Lysine has been proven scientifically NOT to have any affect on the frequency of OBs, but if you want to take it for overall health then by all means go for it. On the other hand, zinc has been proven to reduce OBs.

Do you have any links that support your lysine comments? Its not that I don't believe you, I just want to read the information or testimonies myself so I can make a judgement call. Zinc sounds promising. Ill read up on that.

for now, I think i will discontinue the tooth paste. I believe I have had a chemical reaction with the oil of oregano. The area is extremely red. I don't think i can take another tooth paste application. I will try tooth paste again in the future though.

The toothpaste myth has been going around for years. It started out on click bank pages being sold as a secret for $50.00. Of course you can try it and its free since you already have it but dont expect much other than a sparkling clean herpe. I have tried it for that reason and it made no difference for me. Lysine has not been proven to work although some people say it does. It has not helped me for sure.

It was genital - just normal white toothpaste! Not sure how coldsores feel so it might not help! Might be worth trying Manuka honey too thou, studies have shown it can help because of its antiviral properties - assume that applies to coldsores too xx

Aspercreme helps to shrink and heal my coldsores. But, my coldsores are very small due to antiviral suppression (1000mg valacyclovir) and vitamin b12 sublingual. My monthly coldsores have not appeared the past two months due to treatment.

How did your interviews go and how was your OB at the time?

Hi

Tooth paste burned I take alcohol on a q-tip or alcohol prep pads right on my lip. It burned murder! Lol. When I felt that tinkling feeling coming on the third dy a its so tiny unnoticeable its a battle. Fight it before it shows it head is thr trick for me for my hsv 1 on my lip. But it don't work as good for my hsv2 on my genial I don't mind the burn if its going to get rid of a ob :(

      No I’m sorry the only person that needs to be reported is you. Your posts are unacceptable by societal standards, that’s plain to all readers. Your damage to people with HSV is reprehensible. The only person bashing is you, until your attitude changes and you grow up, there is no place for you on this website.

      Okay,  here's an update... the new site that was bothering me this morning looks clearer and is no longer raised but it's still red.  I've started using tea tree oil mixed with coconut after someone suggested it.   I didn't take an extra dose so I don't know if it was the oil or the medicine.   I'm driving myself nuts with all of this.

      @WilsoInAus 

      The truth of the matter is that you have no idea what you're talking about.  You seriously have issues trying to tell someone about how they suffer, what their test results are.  You apparently suffer from HSV-1 oral based on your profile and you're here for who knows why...sure you must suffer a lot or possibly none at all.  Either way most of the population is okay with someone have HSV-1 orally.  HSV-2 Genital & Oral is a different ballgame for obvious reasons. 

      You think that by my symptoms which include 5 oral lesions since exposure and test results aren't good enough.  I don't need to post my results online to let the world see.  In fact I am done explaining myself. 

      THIS IS A SUPPORT COMMUNITY NOT A BASH COMMUNITY. YOU THINK IT'S OKAY TO BASH PEOPLE FOR LORD KNOW WHAT REASON.  You attempt to manipulate my character with your slander of my character.  The only person proving them self of poor character here is yourself.  

      I have reported you. You have no reason to be here, you are the classical keyboard warrior-troll. I have every right to be pissed off and trust me if I could. I would beat the shit out of you, bc you need lessons learned.  You're alien trying to tell another human being his/her symptoms and feelings.  FUCK OFF. I will never reply to you again. I don't care how much you try to stir the pot. You have lost all credibility and you have nothing better to do than try to demoralize other people. You're a shitty human being.

      @Tone123 could of points. A person with genital herpes is already infected through their entire genital area as marked out roughly by a pair of boxer shorts. Once your immune system is in full swing (a few months from infection) then further infection of the same type, regardless of any sub strains, is of negligible chance.

      You can have HIV for many years without developing AIDs, if that is what you're asking.
