Herplex? Anyone tried this?

Recommended Posts

I was looking in the lip balm section of the super-duper-we-sell-everything store, and found a little red box called Herplex, which claims to be a homeopathic herpes treatment. I've never heard of it before, has anyone tried this stuff?

http://www.herplexfree.com/Default.asp?bhcp=1

The ingredients are strange:

Active Ingredients: Natrum Mariaticum (Sodium Choloride) 30x, Rhus Toxicodendron (Poison Ivy) 30x, Ranunculus Bulbosus (Buttercup) 12x, Malus Pumila (Crab Apple) 5x, Phytolacca Decandra (Pokeroot) 3x, Borax (Sodium Borate) 1x

Poison Ivy? Huh?

It claims to be able to treat both type 1 and 2.

I wonder if it's safe to take with my other vitamin supplements. The dosages are similar to when I was on acyclovir, 3 times a day. Except you wouldn't just have one tablet, you'd chew 3-5 each time.

I seen it and bought it and have used it for 1 day. I will let you know in a few days what I think? Did you buy it and try it?

I've been using it since the day I originally posted, but it's hard to tell how it's affecting me with all the other vitamins I've been taking. I'm going to stop taking my supplements for a few days and just take the herplex to see what it does. I've noticed I'm feeling kind of uncomfortable and crampy, but I'm not sure if it's the herplex or something else. I can't find any information about this stuff anywhere.

So I went off *everything* I was taking, then went back to vitamin C, E and B-Complex alone for a day or two. I added 2g of Lysine daily for two days, with little improvement. I've dropped the Lysine and started taking Herplex 3 times a day instead, and boom, a day latter it's healed.

I'm going to stay on it keep everyone informed of how it does over time. Good so far in my opinion.

My Personal Herplex experiment is over.

It did not prevent my third outbreak or lower its intensity, and I have reason to believe it heavily contributed or is completely responsible for a UTI.

Not worth it at all.

Herplex has been very effective for my husband and I

My husband and I both have genital herpes. We tried Valtrex for a while but stopped due to cost, and questioned whether or not it was actually effective. I stumbled on Herplex at Wally World and tried it during an outbreak. Within 2 days my outbreak was gone. Perhaps coincidence... But my husband and I have eached used it on several subsequent outbreaks and each time the symptoms are gone in a day or so (they would otherwise last much longer).

We haven't taken it daily as a preventative, so I can't speak to how well it works for that. It is great at stopping an active outbreak though.

I can't say if it will work for everyone, but we are huge fans at this point. The hard part is finding the stuff. Not every Wally World has it. It's for sale online at the manufacturer's site, but more than I want to pay. I occasionally see it on ebay and pick it up there.

      When I broke out/ shed it usually was on my backside left side, my  upper crack or back right below the belt! Doggy style is my absolute favorite position which makes him very vulnerable! I think there definitely is an advantage to wearing some sexy clothes or latex! Or even the liquid gloves. I think the biggest problem is that people shave now and they nick and cut themselves! That leads them open for infection on any part of the boxer area!

      I’d build on this to say that the volume of virus is critical. It has been observed that shedding instances where there are 10^7 virions are required for a pragmatic chance to actually get through the skin and it’s natural defences. Most shedding instances are well below this threshold. I’d also suggest that for many asymptomatic transmissions, most of the virus comes to the surface during the sexual act itself. So little point testing beforehand.

      Thank you for sharing that. Very resourceful.

      I wasn't following the conversation closely, but yes, all that matters in terms of being contagious is if the virus makes it to the skin.
    • yadayadayadayada
      @Cas9 isn't that a "technicality"? From the sound of it this means that on a cellular level there is a daily battle but at the end of the day the virus can't transmit until it is present on the skin... right? I mean the question will still be: how many days is the virus present and transmittable. The mechanism (the technicality) is important but also not important... but I could be wrong, just trying to interpret.
