Have you tried Tea Tree Oil? Upon my first outbreak, I didn't know what that first, one tiny spot was. I put a dab of Tea Tree Oil on it as that's what I usually did for shaving nicks or ingrowns because I assumed that's what it was. But oh my-- it STUNG!! It wasn't the essential oil iteslf though-- is that it? I'm just wondering about its effectiveness.

I just thought I would share my experience with natural medicines--I have had herpes for 9 years, and initially I used acyclovir, etc. But I rarely got recurrences, until about a year and a half ago. It's been a very stressful period of time, which I believe has triggered these recurrences. So since I started using natural medicines for other problems a couple years ago, I decided to start looking for natural medicines for herpes when the recurrences started. I bought a book by William Fharel, and he recommends using a combination of DMSO cream on the outbreak site, plus at the base of the spine, (several times a day during outbreaks, and then every couple of months)... plus using oxygenated water. So When I first started, I used the program completely, and didn't have any outbreaks during that time (which isn't completely out of the ordinary--because I never had frequent outbreaks). Anyway, I stopped oxygenating my water, and haven't used the DMSO for a long time. I then had a recurrence, and started using the DMSO every couple hours, and within 48 hours, the sore was almost completely healed. I did start using the DMSO at the very first sign of the outbreak, and didn't wait. So my experience has been good with it, and it seems like it works just as well as (or better than) Valtrex, without the big price tag. Hopefully someone else can benefit from my experience!

DMSO not recommended!

Hi desde,

Welcome to the forum :)

We appreciate your feedback but strongly do NOT recommend this treatment approach due to its known potenial dangers.

You can find more information by searching previous threads on the forum and the Herpes Homepage also has a relevant article here: http://racoon.com/herpes/main/dmso.htm

A full list of related articles on DMSO can be found here: http://www.herpes-coldsores.com/herpes_treatments.htm

Hope this helps,

Shenda

      Why is it your worst fear to have GHSV-1?

      Not sure if this has already been mentioned before, could we donate to his lab? Hsv specifically?

      It can be very difficult to diagnose I do not know the lab discussed here but I have read about sexual health clinics that no longer use the blood tests for this reason of false negatives. Even swabs can be hard they were in my case.  I know I have it and never resorted to the biopsy.

      Do your own research and consult with GP's. I would assume you have this until its totally ruled out.  

      I read about a person on this site who tested neg on the IgG and pos on the weston blot.

      Please do your own research.

      If it is an issue why not speak to admin about creating two separate threads...one for those looking at natural management and "supposed" natural cures and one looking at medical breakthroughs. That way both interests are served, no one is offended and people who wish to look at both can. No one is excluded and everyone included. Those who want to stay with the medical threads can. Maybe there will be less issues that way. 

      Personally I would prefer not to engage with those who are seeking vaccines and gene tech ect esp if they are nasty or condescending and prefer to support and encourage like minded without the excessive debates in a supported enviro.

      Just putting it out there.

      do not panic. be more careful in future and work through the tests. you are better to assume you do and isolate a bit and watch the symptoms. it is hard to test for via blood, and swabs. weston blot is supposed to be most reliable and biopsy too although extreme. red lump that sort of crusted - well herpes symptoms vary widely. 

      it can be hard to deal with doctors as they can assume you do not have it if some test come back neg...they do not always take the attitude to look for it.

      do not panic and follow the steps and research.
