it just wont go away..

Recommended Posts


I was diagnosed with HSV1 genitally via swab culture and blood tests in September of this last year. I thought my world was crashing down. I felt sick sick SICK emotionally and physically for some time after the initial outbreak had gone away. Now.. iv come to terms with my diagnosis and out of nowhere I get smacked with out break #2 which seems to be dragging on longer then the first with much more pain then the first (going on 4 weeks now) I was prescribed Acyclovir (sp?) took it faithfully to no avail... I have noticed the sores have gone down drastically but they are however STILL present none the less. I've read so many different suggestions from one to another most seem ridiculous.. So far I've done the hot water and warm hair dryer on my sores to dry them out. but i have also read that i need to keep them moist.. I prefer to use medicine to clear up thing since its just easier and less tedious and time consuming then home remedies. Is there anything else i can do? I'm growing more and more frustrated as the days go on. :madd::madd::madd::madd::madd:

You want to really improve your immune system, because HSV is a virus that takes advantage of you when you are weak.

This is working for me:


To build immune system:



Vitamin C



And for the treatment of HSV:

Supplements (one pill in the am, one in the pm):

St Johns Wort: 300mg x2

L-Lysine: 500mg x2

Garlic Odorless: 2500mg x2

Daily Topical Treatment (alternate between the two):

Aloe Vera Raw

Zinc Ointment

Neosporin (for pain only)


You'll find something that works for you. Acyclovir also does not work for me.

Try to stay optimistic!

      Diagnosed a year ago. Tried suppression therapy to no avail. Dr prescribed 500mg Valtrex increased to 1000g no help. Two HIV test negative. The worst experience ever. Tried oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, lysine, Multi vitamin. Just read because I’m peri menopausal it might be hormones. Outbreaks are constant hsv 2.  If anyone can can relate, I’m pleading for insight.

      Hi walkthetalk can you please give us more details about your experience with synergy as for how long you been in it, you mention you didn’t get outbreaks do you still feel the flares etc, are you planing to get retested?

      The medications are mainly based on disrupting replication. I am not aware of medications for herpes with the purpose of reducing antibodies directly. Do you have an example?

      I've been reading up on alot of this and I'm just curious about the meds they offer here. They stop it from replicating and others keep the antibodies down. Just a thought and I'd appreciate any input on this. Wouldn't you much rather have high antibodies for this so the immune system can keep it at bay. Or am I all the way off?
