I got herpes about a yr and a half ago. My first ob wasn't bad at all. I thought I had cut myself shaving. If it weren't for the fact that I had to go in for a pap smear, I would have never known. Anyways, I didn't really have many obs until about 8 months ago. My bf and I decieded to get married. All the stress of wedding planning combined with a 4 yr, plus work plus full time school, I was having obs every freaking month! Normally I just take the meds (acyclovir), but it just recently started to not work as well. I had read a bunch of stuff on the internet about tea tree oil. I thought most of it was crap, but I thought, what the heck? I bought some at Walmart yesterday. (For $8) I was at thw tail end of an outbreak, I had about 4 more days before the sores would be gone. I put that stuff on last night and woke up this morning with the sores pretty much gone. I put more on this morning and they are gone completly! When you put the oil on it gets really warm down there (kinda like warming lube) but its not uncomfortable. I'm going to use it next time I feel like another ob is going to happen instead of spending more $$ on drugs.
