369 Home Remedies for Herpes


I have been researching ways to 'cure' myself of this horrible disease; or at least to treat it. As of today, I am day 25 and my little sores have now turned into deep ulcers taking over my lower right scrotum down through my anus. The little sores that were 'off' on their own slowly died away by me either applying liquid lysine or tea tree oil to them.
According to the various ways to treat my outbreak, I should have already cleared up by now. So, you might ask, what did I try? Here is a breakdown of my progress thus far:
I started with applying Lysine & zinc; as a paste. Liquid Lysine mixed by 'blendering' two 50g zinc tablets. I applied liberally.
No results were really present; and the pain was astronomical. So, found another 'idea.' Thus I did the following:
I applied liquid lysine, zinc, and Tylenol pm (zinc & ty ground up), made a paste, applied liberally.
I did notice that small sores not clumped together were starting to die off; but sores that were clumped closer to my scrotum and anus had no change.
I tried another 'idea.' I applied vinegar, lysine, zinc, and Tylenol pm paste (I made myself). BURNED!!!
BTW, this was about 6 days worth of the following three ideas listed above; as a result, my scrotum, where no sores were present, received a chemical burn. Thus, prolonging my healing process.
After seeing no results, I tried the following:
Hot soaks in the bathtub for 20 min with Epsom salt. (I did notice that the smaller sores were drying out and slowly dying.) I continue to use this bathtub idea to help me clean out the now formed ulcers.
Next, I tried applying peroxide. Place peroxide in a spray bottle, and apply liberally to infected areas. BURNS!!! and caused me to ITCH!!! Again, noticed it works on small sores, but not so much on ulcerated sores.
Having almost lost all faith, I read about Propolis; an extract made from bees. Now, because the vitamin shop was closed, I picked up regular 'honey' pills from CVS. Yep, honey as a pill! Again, I blended (in the blender) Honey Pills (4), Tylenol PM, Zinc tablets; then mixed with liquid lysine to create a paste. I applied liberally to the infected areas. RESULTS SHOWED QUICKLY; day quick. However, something in the mix was causing me to have such a powerful stinging pain I had to stop; again, I realized my skin was now starting to be chemically burned and the ulcers were getting deeper and not healing. (Again, the smaller - lone wolf sores were healing nicely, but the larger, clumped sores, in my nice damp folds of my scrotum and anus area were not healing and had started to turn into deep ulcers.) So, I stopped; but something was working! So I ordered pure Propolis...
I first made a paste from Propolis and Aloe Vera; oh it worked wonders on the pain and itching! However, it caused the ulcers to enlarge taking over half my scrotum and down to my anus. I later would conclude the issue was the aloe vera because it doesn't 'dry' out. It remains moist, therefore, keeping the paste moist as well; and after taking my usual hot bath soaks, and seeing how deep the ulcers had become, I knew I had to change something...
The 'a-ha' moment came when I decided to try just the Propolis powder all by itself. (BTW, it comes in pill form and you just pull the pill apart to get to the powder.) No paste, no other oils, liquids, nothing. Just pure Propolis applied directly (I put the powder into a bowl and use cotton balls ((1 per 'scoop and application')) to my ulcers. Interestingly enough, a new round of infections were starting about four days ago, and I applied just the powder propolis directly onto the new sores, and poof...they were covered, sealed, and gone in a couple of days. Seeing these results made me want to apply only the powder to my ulcers. Yep, even today, I am still applying to Propolis to my ulcers, it doesn't sting, doesn't hurt, and seems to be helping to seal the ulcers nicely. However, because the ulcers are oozing so much, I am still having to add new propolis each time I have to use the restroom. The rest of my scrotum is still burned, but is slowly healing.
BTW: All the pastes I made leaked through my underwear and through my pants; so whilst at work, I'd get up and people, I am sure, would think I had pee'd on myself. However, with powder worries.

Where to buy: Vitamin Shoppe (14.99) OR Amazon. Brand: Durhams Bee Propolis (amazon: $12.95)
(I also take it internally, as well as Zinc (100 mg) Vit. C, D,E, and Honey Pills (Yep you can buy them at CVS.) Plus liquid Olive Leaf Extract and Oregano (This stuff will BURN your mouth!!!!! - but worth it) Oh, and I load up on Tylenol (1g) and ibprophen(800mg), about every 4 to 6 hours for the pain.

The moral of the story is this, of everything I tried, and after 25 days, and still many more to go, PROPOLIS seems to have won! Please try Propolis.... it's worth it.


I didn’t get a single breakout for about 1 year. I am taking Hyperisince and follow few basic s like walking 20 minutes everyday, eat light mostly veggies and try to avoid stress as much as I could. I’ll continue with this for 2 months and see if there’s any recurrence.


I'm 21 years old and was just diagnosed with GH in August just a couple days before my birthday. My boyfriend cheated on me and of course right after that I completely ended it , but now everyday I have to suffer for it . I have depression and knowing I now have herpes and feeling scared to have sex with anyone , it makes my depression 20x worse . I'm on my second outbreak . Seems like it's lasting longer than my first one . How can I get it away as soon as possible . It's uncomfortable and it's driving me crazy . I tried putting lemons on it , because I seen that as a home remedy and still didn't work and I'm also taking acyclovir . Any suggestions ?


My Bf has been having Herpes for long. We tried to get many alternate treatment. Nothing worked.

Recently my BF started having Ayurveda and Naturopathy medicine after reading a book by some Richard Teddy Frank. He is getting better.

It is not at all easy. Requires discipline. Tough but works out.

Hopeful for healing

Roughly 4 days ago I got the life altering news that I would now be living with GH for the rest of my life. I was devastated. This news brought pain to me, but not like the physical pain that came from the sores. My whole downstairs department is sore and covered with blisters. THIS IS THE MOST PAIN I HAVE EVER BEEN
IN. I can not walk, sit, pee or do anything really without being in tears. The worst of it all though is going to the bathroom. It's gotten to the point where i hold it in all day so I won't have to go to the bathroom and feel the excruciating pain. If anyone has some input on how to make going to the bathroom easier and speeding up the healing time, please let me know!!


Well I just got detected today that I have herpes and I'm having a breakout I use the bathroom and I just start crying because it's a horrible pain it's been 3 days I don't know what to do and worse of all I don't know how I got this I've been in a committed relationship for about a year and I'm just now having this breakout. I'm still waiting on my results but I just can't stand this pain I'm going through I want to kill myself!


Hi so I am 20 & I have been having break outs since I was 18. I found out I had GH after I had Hodgkins' Lymphoma which weakened my immune system, allowing the GH to present itself. If being bald and going through chemo wasn't enough I went through weeks of awful pain at which I still had to go in for treatment and I had no idea what was going on. Once my doctor told me I had Herpes I cried hysterically because I have only been with and still am only with this one man and I thought he had cheated on me and given it to me. But I told him what I had but when he went and got tested he was clean so then he thought I had cheated on him (like my tiny shrivelled self was a boy magnet). So Now I have HV-2 and no idea how I got it. My mom is getting herself tested because she thinks I might have been born with it because my dad dated a girl that had herpes and then maybe my mom got it and then gave it to me but it only presented itself in me because I have no immune system to fight it off. Well, now it's been 3 years since my first outbreak and I get them almost every month and I don't know what to trust as to how to fix it! I know there is no cure but I need help. My doctor gives me these big blue pills that I take for a week and I take em and the break out kinda goes away then comes straight back! And when I use baking soda it burns so bad that I just have to wash it off again. Any remedies for the burning and to make it go away faster! Please! I'm terrified to even have my boyfriend touch me bc we'll start to do it and then I feel them inside me and I just cry because I thought I had finally gotten rid of the soars and there they are back again and it's another moment that I could have given it to the love of my life. It never goes away and i just feel so dirty. I don't even know why he stayed with me after this. Just someone tell how to fix this?!


In addition to my first post: garlic has antiviral properties. Herpes is a virus. This may be the reason it provides relief.


I am a 49 year old female. The love of my life gave me herpes 20 years ago. First know the initial outbreaks are far worse than what you will experience after the first few. I have a mild outbreak about twice a year. Here are remedies that work for me; Epsom Salt baths-blow dry the area rather than towel dry, use a cool setting. Sprinkle cotton ball with baking soda and pat on effected area. I also get enormous relief from a peeled, pressed garlic clove. Place it on a cotton ball and press directly on sore; it will sting for a bit but then you will feel relief from the pain and itching. Keep it in place as long as you can, 10 minutes or so. If you chill the garlic glove first it will be even more soothing. Remember, the clove must be peeled and pressed (with back of a spoon or a knife). Your life is not ruined, you are still loveable! You are not dirty! Live your life and be honest with your partners!

21 And still understanding

I'm 21, and I've recently found out that I have HSV. I felt so alone, confused. I had my first OB about 4 weeks ago. It was the worst. I'm really disappointed in myself, because I just don't know how I let it happen. But I know I'll be just fine, with the work of the good lord. My OB seems to come when my cycle is about to come. And that is the most irritating thing because I can't keep my blisters dry. They itch like crazy. So uncomfortable. But I sit in ah warm bath with Vaseline bath salt, then blow dry myself. I wear cotton underwear, but I just don't know how to make it clear up faster. I be in pain for days! I'll get it together soon. It's just, you never know what you are capable of getting, so protect yourself.
