tea tree oil


Recommended Posts

tea tree oil is an antiseptic. if a person was to use it on a rugular basis, lets say but some on the genital area everynight before bed, could this reduce the number of active outbreaks or the duration of outbreaks?

vitamin C

just read a book about healthy eating for certain diseases at a local store. and they had herpes in it! :o anyways the book said that certain stiduies have shown that vitamin c can actually cause an outbreak. think this is true? because i take large amount of vitamin c and dont want to if it encourages an outbreak.

I have read information that says otherwise. Vitamin C helps the body to naturally produce interferon which combats viruses.

Strangely enough - interferon can be produced synthetically and is used by the medical community to help people who have contracted hepatitis c. Research indicates that natural interferon is far more effective. Vitamin C is not stored in the body and we need it for other things such as vascular health which is a big factor in heart health.

Now you are going to send me off researching some more. :)

Then just take the vitamin c you can swallow in tablet form so it doesn't aggrevate the surface and still is able to fight the virus from the inside where it is being replicated.

Has anyone tried Aloe Vera???

I have read on the aloe vera site, that it boosts the immune system,also trials have been done with men with GHSV2.

You have to make sure that it has not been diluted down, and of good quality, the tests showed the cream rather than the gel to be more effective.

You can buy your own plant, and when needed squeeze some gel out of the leaves and apply.

I've considered buying aloe vera gel to apply topically. It is good stuff. I grew up with mom using it for any skin problem. She even would buy it in a liquid and make us drink it. I thought it was "gross" definitely not a kid friendly flavor but it never hurt us.

      https://imgur.com/a/cVi8yJY 2 weeks ago I had unprotected oral sex. Few days later I wake up with a stinging sensation in my urethra. I don't have any blisters, lesions or redness, my penis looks completely normal from the outside, but the stinging in my urethra is always there. Urinating doesn't make the pain worse. From the research I've done and how my body feels I'm pretty sure I caught genital hsv1. To make matters worse I think I transmitted it to my eyelid by touching my infected penis and then my eyelid which did develop a blister. Can anyone look at my lower eyelid and tell me if it looks anything like herpes?  I forgot to add that the blister is painless, but my eye is a bit watery. Other than that it's fine and my eyesight is good. Considering how this all developed in a matter of a week after I had unprotected sex it can't be much else than herpes..

      Hey I see that they also sell the pill form in 100 mg and 500 mg form. Do you think this is as affective? They have the regular and extract version of the pill. Which would you think is the right one to get? And how many pills per day to get the same effect of say 16 seeds?

      I had an IGG test  and the ranges were out of range and high  HSV 1 was 42 and HSV 2 was 19 so I guess it was accurate but the problem now is I can't figure out when or who I got it from. In 2018 to 2019 when I was with my ex I was STD tested but not sure if herpes was included but my ex was supposed to get tested but refused. I experienced some trauma with him and didn't date until a year and a half later so I'm confused. The guy I dated after the ex who didn't want to be tested I told them a week ago about my results he was trying to be there for me and understanding,I told him to get tested but to request a herpes blood test , because he had no noticeable lesions or bumps ever is what he said and I never noticed any on him now he has shut down all his social media and I can't reach him. Hoping he's okay, I feel bad because in 2018 I did have what I was told it was an abrasion that tingled but at my doctor the day I was tested they told me it wasn't herpes but I think it was only a visible diagnosis. I keep having it reoccur from time to time

      Hello "FeelingLost".... your fears and concerns are understandable but, nothing you've described regarding the sexual encounter would cause you to contract herpes.... further, your symptoms are not herpes related.  Best of all, your doctor is correct, your results don't show any herpes here.  You can relax.... definitely have your GP take a look at things and see what might be causing the symptoms but, again, none of them are typical herpes related.  I wish you the best in terms of talking to your wife about this encounter.... hopefully she will understand and you both can work through this amicably.  We all make mistakes.... be careful not to beat yourself up too hard over this.... you can become so racked with guilt that you start imagining physical symptoms.  Best of luck.... and take care..... come back to the site if you have questions.
