Genital Herpes Home Remedy Comments

2 Comments for the Genital Herpes Home Remedy


I was diagnosed with HSV1 located genitally over 13 years ago. I had a BAD inital outbreak (heavy valtrex was used)... but NONE ever since (there is hope for those just diagnosed) until yesterday. While not nearly as bad as the first one, the location of this one is painful (it's swelling and making it hard to pee). I came on here and last night I took a bath in espom salts, and made a tylenol paste.
I used tylenol, benadryl (which is what the PM is in tylenol PM), and vagisil. Mixed into a paste. I dried the area well, applied Abreva and then applied the paste. OMG ... IT WORKS! All night and some of the morning I was pain/itch/burn free and the swelling was lessened. It started again this afternoon so I again soaked and reapplied. SO HAPPY it works.
