Tea tree & cornstarch. The tea tree is a natural anti-viral and relieves itching. Cornstarch dries out the blisters & prevents chafing. After bathing, apply tea tree oil using a cotton swab, and with clean hands pat cornstarch over the area of infection. Wash hands before and after every time you touch the area of infection.
Vitamins: Zinc, L-Lysine, Selenium, & B-complex. Wear loose, comfortable cotton undies and no tight-fitting attire. DO NOT scratch! Give it time to heal.

Don't stress! Remember you are not alone - 1 in 4 people will contract this in the span of their lifetime. You are still beautiful and can live a normal life. I've had this for years, and still managed to find an amazing guy who loves me for my quirky personality, stubbornness and pretty smile and not this stupid virus I carry. He's the bread to my butter and Im the toast to his jam. Love that man. :)
Just be cautious when you feel an outbreak coming on. NO sex until you know for sure! Also, I know condoms suck and decrease sensitivity but you should always be smart & use them! Your partner will appreciate your thoughtfulness of the situation.

I'd try to stay away from drugs, they sometimes have icky side effects (nausea). However if its really bad, go see your MD and get on acyclovir. It will shorten the duration of your outbreak and relieve your GH symptoms.

Hope this helps!
God bless & don't stress :)

Thank you so much for your positive message :-) I haven't been diagnosed as yet but I am pretty sure I have genital herpes... Symptoms started about five days ago and it's like nothing I've ever had before. Thanks again :-)
