Herpes - What One Can Do

By David Paule


As of today, there is no cure that has shown to consistently cure herpes. However, you do not have to sit around feeling like there is nothing you can do. What you certainly can do is to prevent the virus from spreading even further.

And there are some Cold Sore Home Remedies that might be helpful. But a without wanting to dampen anyone's enthusiasm concerning home remedies, it needs to be stated that there is no scientific proof for their effectiveness.

The benefit with natural treatments is that it doesn't have substantial negative effects that may change your life completely, so giving them a shot won't do you any kind of harm whatsoever.

Interestingly, the herpes virus can remain dormant in the human body, which means that an infected person can live a normal life. In fact, statistically speaking a significant percentage of the world's population is infected, without being aware of it.

But when an outbreak occurs, the virus really does show its power. Yet, there are a few things that you can do in order to minimize the effect: First of all, you might want to avoid aspartame, since it has been reported to make outbreaks worse.

If you suffer from genital herpes, wearing cotton underwear and loose close might give you some relief; drinking black tea is also said to help is it seems to reduce the itching. Moreover, you could try eating foods high in lysine, such as fish and poultry.

What you would want to avoid, in contrast, is chocolate, white flour, and nuts. Some drugs may be helpful as well. More specifically, Famcyclovir and Acyclovir are recommended by many former herpes sufferers.

These types of drugs will slow up the production and spread with the herpes virus, however they are prescription drugs therefore should be taken with the permission and overseeing of your medical doctor. Natural Cold Sore Treatment options are safer, cheaper and, best of all, work much better for you.

Moreover, besides taking drugs you might want to try to minimize your stress level, if possible. Unfortunately, one stressful thing you will have to still do is to let your partners know (those you had sexual contact with) that you have the virus, so that they themselves can get tested.
