Submitted by Desperate for Genital Herpes

I'm a 48 year old woman. I had my first outbreak over 20 yrs ago when I was about 23. Then no more outbreaks until a year ago, Now I've had around 4 outbreaks this past year alone! At first ithought perhaps my boyfriend unkmowingly has it snd was triggering my outbreaks but my obgyn says that's unlikely. He has never had symptoms and believes he doesn't have it.He thinks when he went to his doc and told them to test for 'everything' that they tested for genital herpes too but I think that's a special test that must specifically requested. Am I right?

Anyway I don't understand why my outbreaks last so long. At least a month to 6 eeeks each time. And thats with taking Valtrex twice a day. My doc prescribes 30 pills at a time for me now. I'm so so itchy!! I can't help but scratch the sores open and then it still itches! The only thing that temporarily relieves the itch is baking soda but it doesn't seem to help heal it. I've even applied nail polish remover to help dry it and relieve the itching but it doesnt seem to help. I tried Lysol wipes after I read that suggestion on here but it didn't help at all.

Any suggestions? Has anyone else gone over 20 years without an outbreak and then have the outbreaks start coming all the time?

Submitted by OB for Bacterial Vaginosis

I suffered from BV for 2 - 3 years and after all of the Drs visits, over the counter remedies and prescriptions that did not work I came upon this site. Thank God!!! One simple remedy worked; I got some organic Greek plain yogurt and dipped a tampon in it and inserted it and slept with it overnight. Worked the first night, amazing!! Repeat if necessary. The other thing I dont do anymore is wash the vagina with soap, use water only. Of course use soap in the buttocks area, but not the vagina. It's been over a year and I'm still doing great, thank God!!!!

chew up some TUMS and let them sit in your mouth on the sores

Submitted by Gael for Angular Cheilitis

This is an update. I'm trying aloe vera, scraped from inside the plant, as a topical application twice a day, over 2 days. It is improving. The crack feels comfortable, I can open my mouth wide, and the aloe vera doesn't sting. And it's natural and costs nothing. Hallelujah :-)

i got diagnosed with genital herpes on my 23rd birthday... Happy birthday to me! My first 6 months were hell! I had an outbreak every 2-3 weeks.... My doctor finally put me on acyclovir. It saved me! Since going on it I only had 3 outbreaks. I also started taking 3000 mg lysine a day. Anytime I get a tingling sensation I started to put lysine ointment on and I never got any sores. I just started an outbreak a week ago. First one in 7 months. The longest time I've went without one! I've started doubling my lysine intake, b12 intake, vitamin C intake, and my acyclovir. It's day 7 of my outbreak and it's almost done. I've been taking strong Epsom salt baths as many times a day as I can. Been going camando as much as possible. I've also been putting caramex and wiping with witch hazel and clearasil pads. Stings like a b but works at drying them out. I hope this helps someone and know that life isn't over!

Submitted by Woodelf for Genital Warts

It's taken about a month of treatment, but now they're pretty much nonexsistant. I'm female and I first realised I had warts before going to a rainbow gathering, which meant I would be in an unhygienic enviroment for a while. Before leaving, I slept with a teatree soaked tissue in between my lips for a couple of nights. I didn't dilute the teatree at all, so after a couple of nights of this I was too soar to continue. I was at the rainbow for 10 days with no treatment and when I got back to civilisation, I had a look and already they were less than when I'd first noticed them.

I still didn't nothing to treat them for a couple more weeks, other than a little teatree now and again. I'm traveling and teatree is what I have with me, so I would use it when I could, but I also read they would go away on their own, so I wasn't too worried.

When I got to a place I knew I was going to stay at for a while I did some more reasearch on herbal remadies and found one on here using BANANA SKINS.

I tried using apple cider vinegar a few times but it hurt more than it was worth and made them bleed, which made me worry that they might spread.

Every night (other than a few nights when I was bleeding) I have been cutting up bits of banana skin and placing them on my warts. I also stuck some bits inside, just incase I have any in there too. I've also been eating around three cloves of RAW GARLIC a day.

During the day, I've been smoothering my vag in TEATREE diluted in almond oil, about a 4/5 almond to 1/5 teatree.

I also somtimes put a few drops of this mixture onto the banana skin (white side, the side you place on your warts) and wear it during the day, if I'm not moving around much.

This is a much less painfull method, which doesn't take too long really. I'm going to continue this treatment for a week after there's no warts left, just to make sure.

Summery (for all you skim readers)

BANANA SKIN - over the warts every night
4/5 ALMONDS OIL 1/5 TEATREE - during the day treatment
EAT SHIT LOADS OF RAW GARLIC!!!

I hope this helps you too :)

Submitted by Jen for Ringworm

I tried creams, sprays, epsom salt soaks, sea salt soaks, dead sea salt soaks, coconut oil, overnight vaseline wraps, Vapor-rub... nothing had the slightest effect (except soaking took off the thick crust of dead skin that made walking hurt- mine was on the bottom of my foot), and under the dead skin was bright red and raw, with weeping blisters.

Finally I tried soaking in a strong solution of apple cider vinegar and hot water. That finally made a difference and made it start to look and feel better, but after several days it seemed to stop making progress. It wasn't nearly as angry anymore but the vinegar seemed to just be keeping it at bay and slowing the appearance of new blisters rather than getting it to start healing.

Finally I read an 'old wives' suggestion about rubbing a spent menthol cigarette butt on it; supposedly the nicotine will kill the fungus and the menthol is soothing. I didn't have one (and had switched to e-cig vaping so I wasn't going to get one), but I realized ... if it was the nicotine that was killing it, then the nicotine fluid you put in a e-cig should work, right? I mixed some of my 18mg nicotine fluid with a couple tablespoons of vapor rub, and threw in a couple of teaspoons worth of coconut oil just for 'flavor' ;-)... then put a huge blob of that mixture on the spot and wrapped it in plastic for the night. The next morning I was amazed at how much better it looked. I have continued this routine and it has continued to fade... first a hot water and apple cider vinegar bath, then a vapor-rub mixed with nicotine fluid wrap at night. I rub some nicotine fluid on it during the day straight like you would a cream as well. Be warned though, that the fluid actually makes it itch more for a while (rather than burn like the other remedies). I couldn't believe such a thing would finally get it to start healing after months of trying every other suggestion I could find... but it works! You can now buy the fluid in most shops where you'd buy cigarettes. They sell it in higher concentrations but 18mg seems to be working okay for now. I augment by spraying shoes with Lysol and using regular anti-fungal spray in the mornings as well, just to cover the bases and make sure it doesn't spread.
