This is going to sound 'omg' to everyone but it works. I have read way too many posts of people telling you diet, supplements bla bla bla. I wanted to read something telling me how to get the damn things gone when they appear. So here is mine. My outbreaks come on pretty fast. As soon as I feel the tingle or itch, the spot is already there, so remedies for catching it early are hopeless. I take a q-tip and dip it in lysol(regular lemon lysol) hold it on the spot for about a minute. Then rub it around on the spot a few times. It may burn a little but nothing compared to the pain of the sore itself. U will notice the shedding starting immediately. Do this 3 times in one day. By the 2nd day the sore is dried out and open. That's when u do the peroxide and neosporin frequently. My outbreaks clear in 2 days. I have tried everything and this has been the best remedy for me. I know alot of people will say 'omg you put lysol on your genitals?' Well do you want to get rid of the outbreak or not! Don't be afraid to do it, it causes no reactions, especially since the only place you are applying it is on the herpes spot. I found it online so apparently somebody else did it first. Lysol kills the herpes virus so it only stands to reason that it would help. I was hesitant at first but I got so fed up with the pain that I was willing to try anything!
