11 Comments for the Genital Herpes Home Remedy


I'm 22 years old. I was diagnosed with HSV1 2 years ago. I searched for home remedies to help with genital herpes because a couple days ago I started to break out (my second time). My first outbreak was pretty much traumatizing. I didn't show any signs or symptoms of the disease for 2 years and then I went on vacation to Cancun, Mexico and not even a week later I broke out. I would barely walk, I had so much discharge, I couldn't wear underwear because the sores kept sticking to them and everytime I moved it felt like I was ripping my skin. I was in so much pain I threw up. My whole body just ached. I spent most of the days in the bath tub because that was the only thing that soothed the sores. I went to immediate care and they gave me a 10 day prescription for valtrex, 1,000 mg hydrochodone and gel that was 5% lidocaine. I tried the lidocaine but when it dried it pulled my skin and my pubic hairs just adding to my pain. So far for my second outbreak I am not in pain but more sores keep popping up. I'm PRAYING it doesn't get any worse. My boyfriend does not have the virus. He gts very frustrated because I always have some kind of vagina problem. Like a bad odor or it'll get really sore on the outside and itchy on the inside. There's usually something wrong with my vagina everyother week almost. I've tried telling my obgyn and she just kept giving me diflucan(for a yeast infection). My family doctor gave me some vaginal cream that I put in tubes and inject into my vagina for 7 days. I think it's for bacterial vaginosis but I'm scared to do it because everytime I try the injectable creams I have some kind of reaction. I don't have any home remedies for genital herpes, I just wanted to tell my story. I feel gross sometimes and I feel bad for my boyfriend because he has to deal with all of this. I just want to feel normal and have a normal body again and feel comfortable in my body again...

For yeast infections you can try REAL natural yogurt MUST contain lactoacidophillus(no color, no sugar or artificial ingredients)as it eats the yeast. Spread the yogurt on a maxipad put in place and sleep with it on overnite. Often it will soothethe itchiness immediately, do this for 7-10 days to get rid of the yeast problem. Additionally, you can use tampons coated with yogurt as well.
