I have had genital herpes since I was 25. I am now 65. I have prevented outbreaks by eating lots of protein, kind of like the Atkins diet, so you lose weight too. I also take The amino acid, Lysine, regularly 1,000 mg a day and more when I feel a tingle. I have found that B vitamins in any form can trigger an attack. When I get a sore, I douche with water and apple cider vinegar, the natural kind. And that soothes it quite a bit and heals it. I am looking now for a lysine cream to apply directly to the sores. I think that should help.
