5 Comments for the Genital Herpes Home Remedy


Hello all,

I am 23 and am currently having my first OB.
I have not been formally diagnosed, or gone to a doctor, but feel it is unnecessary at this point. I know I have HSV-2. For how long I've had it, I am unsure. But its pretty obvious its what I have. I've made a lot of bad decisions as far as sexual partners up until now. I'm not angry, and I know this is my punishment for it.
The only thing I am worried about is the fact that I have probably had this for a while, and that I am afraid I have already given it to my current sexual partner, a man I care very much for, that I love with all my heart and that does not deserve to go through this.
I feel I am lucky, this being my first OB and it supposed to be being the worst, I have gotten off pretty easy.
I have multiple sores only on the right aide of ny body from my anus leading on just the side of my vagina. It's mostly just itchy, with only some mild/moderate pain and little pain while urinating. I am on day 5, and at least the vaginal sores are already starting to scab over. I am not sure how much longer I have to go though, and am really hoping its in the process of going away.
I also get this really weird pain only one my pinky toe on my right foot. That started yesterday and I'm not sure if it has anything to do with it, but am assuming it does.

As far as a remedy, I have been on my period, so there's not a whole lot I can do. But I have been using Lanacane, which is an anti-itch/ anti-bacterial creme I have been applying a few times a day. And am currently using an icepack to soothe some of the pain, as well as aleve.
There is still itching and pain, don't get me wrong. But its been bareable.
I do have to work tomorrow and can't afford to take anymore days off. And I work 40 hours ,so I'm a little worried and am hoping it will be okay.
Thanks for listening, and I wish the best for everyone. It's not easy, but we will get through it!
Any other suggestions would be very appreciated as well!

Hello I have had genital herpes for about 7 years and it was had to talk with my partner about but we talked through it and now married with a 4 year old girl. but outbrakes can b brought on by stress getting ur period, a lot can trigger and outbreak. Take warm baths with Epsom salt keep clean and dry. its a hard thing to deal with and live with but ull have to figure out what works for u and I wish u the best


I've had mine for 4 years now I've tryed doctors meds valtrex ect it worked so so. But cure I've found for me is at the first tingle or sign of an outbreak cotton balls soaked in Witch Hazel! It will burn a little but to me it's a sign it working. I repeat several times a day I also carry a small bottle in my purse to use when I'm out and about. Like I said it will burn make sure to really saturate the whole area. Witch hazel helps cure mine in 2-3 days tops. Make sure you towel dry well after showers and apply serval times a day. Hope this helps!


If you are deeply in love w/your current partner it is VERY irresponsible not to protect him by making him wear a condom and NOT allow him to perform oral sex. Is he deeply in love w/you? He may be scarred the rest of his life with someone he may not stay with. Sit in a 35% peroxide bath all during out break. Purchase from a healthfood store 3% peroxide h2o2 ALWAYS dilute with distilled or reverse osmosis water or you WILL die. Its a Herpes, cancer, HATE oxygen!! May never have an outbreak again or maybe not many more!! *I am not a dr. nor practicing medicine. disclaimer


You cannot blame yourself, if you have sores around your vagina that a condom wouldn't protect form it would not be your fault if he caught it unless you knew you had sores. Do not let anyone make you feel bad! I have a friend who has only slept with three people in her whole life and she got an infection after the second one, STD's are no judgement on you or your character!

I've come to realise that herpes is not the end of the world it's just a matter of finding a partner that will appreciate the warning you give him and as long as you are careful together it should not be a problem, find someone who can see past it.
And don't beat yourself up about it!


Hello, I have found that Aleve can actually trigger an outbreak, it did for me and for my ex-husband.
