Frequent Outbreaks finally STOPPED

Recommended Posts


I was diagnosed with both types 1 & 2 exactly 4 yrs ago while pregnant and though I have never gotten any outbreaks in my nether regions, thank God, I was getting oral facial outbreaks on an almost daily basis ever since my first cold sore appeared prior to my diagnosis.  I was devastated!  I have tried everything you usually try to keep the cold sore from getting worse you name it, I tried it.  I even went so far as to get on Acyclovir suppressive therapy for 6 mos and was still getting ugly outbreaks.  Out of desperation I also bought herpotherm and virulite to keep the virus at bay.  It works but not every time, so I keep it near me st all times just in case.  As my 6 mo prescription was about to run out, I dreaded calling he Dr to get it refilled, so I again turned to natural methods, which I believe I finally found what works.  

I highly suggest taking ZINC, about a 1/4 tablet of 50mg seems to keep the virus at bay without any OD side effects.  Once a day I take Zinc 1/4 tablet, Immune Support capsules, Garlic capsules, and Astragalus together with a meal, and I also take Monolaurin at night before bed time.  I have been outbreak free for 2 weeks now. This doesn’t seem like a long time, but considering I was dealing with DAILY outbreaks of multiple cold sores, I feel like my prayers have been answered.  I’m sharing to help anyone else who is looking for relief.  For added measure, I will also be buying a infrared light therapy lamp to attack the virus from the outside as well.  I will post an update once I begin the light therapy in conjunction with my supplements.  If my post helps anyone, I will be happy for you.   Please share results if you take my recommendation.  Peace.

      My Neurologist prescribed me Escitalopram for the nerve pain. Really haven’t started taking it, I was hoping the nerve pain just stops. Some way some how he told me that I will never have an outbreak and I haven’t..Weird?  Anyway I’m married, for 15years. When I discovered I had HSV my wife got tested as we’ll found out she had it since college!! Didn’t know that the fever blisters she got in college was HSV...I trust that this is how I got it. But wouldn’t you know she has no symptoms at all other than she knows she has it. There maybe something to this that there is something else wrong here besides HSV.

      It’s not our heads that cause the sores I think this wound be very stupid for doctors to say as you can clearly see a sore.. however I do think if you are focused on a sensation constantly you will zone in on this feeling and always notice it I suffer from anxiety anyway in general so I do think some of my sensations maybe anxiety related.. but no or course cuts/ blisters  cannot be

      I've noticed a trend of people sharing stories about doctors telling them the tingling sensation is all in their head or caused by the patient themselves. My doctors did the same thing. I explained that I am not making myself confused and dizzy nor am I causing my skin to cut itself open on my penis and lips.
