5 Comments for the Genital Herpes Home Remedy

Gabrielle

So I have been reading and reading all through these posts, I was just diagnosed monday with HSV 1, I have actually had it much longer...years I have had it and didn't know, I just thought I had really bad yeast infections and very sensitive skin due to the fact I also have psoriasis. I have only had 2 partners, my first boyfriend and my husband of almost 10 years, who I met while pregnant with my daughter (courtesey of my 1st boyfriend who took off when I was 6 months pregnant) my first boyfriend also gave me hpv which turned into cervical cancer, I've been cancer free for years :) I let the anger of that go before I ever gave birth, because I knew without going through all of it I wouldn't have her... Fast forward through marrying my now husband and giving birth to a son to monday im laying on the exam table, crying....how.did this happen? I have been faithful, I know my husband has been faithful, how long have I had this ? I could recall my 'horrible yeast infections' for about 6 years... My doctor looked through my chart and said that I may have gotten this from my daughters father but just didn't have an outbreak until my psoriasis became evident because it's an auto immune disorder so my immune system is weaker...oh great...another little gift from my ex... As the doctor was taking swabs that hurt like Hellll, I remembered whenever I caught my ex cheating on me and like a niave girl I would forgive him, he would try to make it up to me by giving me oral sex... Wow reading that really makes me see how young and niave I was...anyways he got cold sores and I was forgiving so the delayed end result was.me on the exam table with a forever diagnosis... I cried, I went to the pharmacy crying, drove to my sisters crying, went home crying.... How was I going to tell my husband? Even to me, who knew all of the facts, it sounded suspicious... ' Hi honey, I went to the doctor today turns out I have had genital herpes outbreaks and not bad yeast infections for the last 6 years, I' ve actually had it for over ten years but my body used to be stronger so the disease was dormant' so I cried some more and stiffened my spine, I was gonna feed the kids early and put them to bed then we would have the talk... He walked in from work while I was making dinner he picked up our daughter (shes his daughter now and has been from the day I had her) told her she looked beautiful like mommy and said how was beautiful mommy's day? I burst into tears over the mashed potatoes, there went my plan... He sent our daughter out and everything just spilled out... I told him I was so sorry , I didn't know, I would understand if he didn't believe me...i finally ran out of words and there was 10seconds of silence before he said ' I had ringworm next to my balls once' Oooookkkkaaayyyy........ He told me to calm down, it wasn't the end of the world and he knew I was faithful, holy crap, how did I ever get this lucky to find this man? I told him I was so scared and I didn't want to get him sick too and I was going to educate myself to keep him and our kids safe... He said letting go of my guilt would be a good start, hes a big believer of mental well being and said I was doing a good job keeping everyone safe already since no one else in the house has it and now that we really knew what was going on this knowledge would only keep them safer... So I went online and started reading about how the virus works then I started looking into remedies and ended up here so this is what I do everyday :


1000mg of vitamin C
2000mg L Lysine
I take 2 epson salt baths 1 in the morning and 1 at night and drink earl grey tea while I soak when I get out I use cornstarch directly on my vagina and sprinkle some in my panties....OMG the cornstarch is AMAZING no pain while walking no burning no itching a total lifesaver
Just yesterday I started using the liquid form of propolis... I wont lie, it burns like hell when it goes on, I put it directly on the sore then I apply the cornstarch and wash it off during each of my baths, then reapply... And in just 36 hours my sores are flat and some are scabbing over!! Yay!!!
I also take mortin for the pain and that works really well too
Most importantly, let go of the anger and the stress of this, so many people have this and just don't talk about it... It doesn't make us dirty or bad, it just is what it is and the sooner you accept it you can start healing... I hope this helps someone else, I know this website has been a great comfort to me

I just want to say thank you for this post! I've been living with herpes for 10 years now. My first outbreak was so painful i couldn't walk for days! Since then when i have a flare up i usually have the meds to take. I've recently fell on hard times and cannot afford it. Last night i had an outbreak. Desperate for relief i turned to the internet looking for homeopathic treatment. Thank god i found this site! I took an Epsom salt sitz bath last night, dried off really good. Then i got the lysine ointment thats typically used for cold sores (all natural) and applied it to the sores directly with a qtip. I also sprinkled cornstarch directly on my vagina and some in my panties as well. When i got up this morning, instead of the bath i did epsom salt and hot water compresses, reapplied the lysine and cornstarch, and put on clean cotton panties. I've also been taking 1000mg of vitamin C. I just got into another bath and the sores are all but gone! I just want to say thank u so much for ur story and advice! Its worked for me!

Oh yay!!! I'm so glad it helped :) I was wondering did the liquid lysine burn when you put it on? I use the propolis but it burns sooooo bad I have to bite on a towel so I don't yell and scare my kids lol. My OB is healed but I would love to skip the propolis burning next time... Thanks!

What stores carry propolis

Gabrielle

I had to go to a health food store, I live in a small town so things are more expensive, the bottle was about 20 dollars, hope this helps!
