I am so happy to have found this site! I am 29 y/o and have only had 3 partners ever. I have not been officially diagnosed yet as it is the holidays and no office has anyone available. My symptoms started as the itching and burning, I have a history of yeast infections so that is what I thought I had. The next day.......I had bumps that quickly turned into blister and proliferated. I instantly knew what it was (I am a nurse). Of course I was completely devastated. I came across this site and have tried a few things. For me what dried up the blisters the quickest was the bee propolis. I literally had them scabbed over in less than 24 hours. I was SHOCKED!! I shower/clean 2-3 times a day and dab tea tree oil over the sores with a cotton swab the put the bee propolis over that (this burns like hell). I am taking vit-c and multi-vit to boost my immune system. I know through what i've read that some things will help for some people and not others. All i can suggest is to stay open in your options of treatment. I can not say how thankful I am that I found this site with all the remedies. I thankfully have a boyfriend that is 100% supportive at has helped me with the research to find what works. I hope that this will help someone as all of the other posts have helped me. I pray for little to no outbreaks in the future (a girl can wish, right?!) God bless!

This is how I have fought herpes and candida. It may not work for others but it has done it for me, so far. First of all, get regular sleep; I cannot sleep for 7-8 hours every night but I manage to have at least 6 (continuous). Obviously, include as many vegetables and fruits as you can; that helps a lot for your immune system.

Next, take 1/4 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda dissolved in a glass of water morning and evening for a month. Be sure you take it over two hours before or after your meals, and I would wait as much time before taking in further food. Bicarbonate of soda creates an alkaline environment in our stomach, which is not ideal for fungi and viruses. However, we need an acidic environment when digesting; this is why it is important leaving enough time between the ingestion of BofS and any intake of food.

Next, neem, which is a tree growing mainly in India. Get pure neem oil and capsules.
Capsules: Take two capsules daily (morning and evening, with your meals) after you have finished with the bicarbonate of soda's treatment. Do it for a month.
Oil: use the oil from the first month while using the bicarbonate of soda. Apply on the skin externally, do not take internally. The oil freezes if temperature is lower than 18 degrees. Just put the bottle of oil under warm water or rub it in your hands for a while and it will return liquid. It does smell but I don’t mind it. Others may do.

Take a break; see how it has gone after the first month with the bicarbonate of soda and then the second one with the capsules.

Good luck.

Morning,

No remedies here. I was struggling with this process of the virus. This is the first time I have ever spoken up a about it. I'm 26 soon to be 27 and I have herpes. That felt good to admit , I have dealt with this since I was 16. I did this to myself, I was promiscious and I trusted too many. Next thing you know I was on the toliet screaming. The Obgyn diagnosed me with herpes, and a list of other STIs that was treatable.

I couldn't wrap the herpes concept around my head, I was young and so stupid. I admit that I have had unprotected sex in the past and I didnt notify my partner. No one can be beat me up more about this issue then me. The guilt rides me like a heavy burden and I feel bad about the people that I may have infected.

For a while I was depressed and I didn't tell a soul except my Mom and Ill tell you later why she's a blessing herself. But, I was down until this very day. I'm single, no kids, college educated and so much to offer but I didn't think that I could find real love, have a family and kids. My mom was and has been my biggest supporter she is the one that says I Can do it, love is there, keep fighting.

How can I not take her wisdom, she is fighting HIv. How Ironic for a herpes and a HIV fighter to be in the same household. My mom is and will always be my greatest inspiration. If it wasn't for her I would have ended along time ago.

I would like to thank all of you for your stories , I stayed up all night reading them. With tears in my eyes I realized I'm not alone and you don't understand how lonely I felt sometimes, I couldn't understand why I was cursed for something I did as a child/teen. I felt worthless thru all my aaccomishments, I didn't feel like a woman. But again thanks for the remedies and success stories.

I don't get BOs a lot, when I do it's around my period and I just wait it out....it's hard but hearing some of the remedies I will try once it starts again.

Sometimes If I'm having sex from the back it hurts, so I'm guessing that's my infected area. I noticed that when I'm stressed I do beak out so I'm starting today on that.

I do discharge a lot, I hate it. Any suggestions? My Obgyn is like the others it seems she blows me off every time I talk to her about it.

But I Love y'all for this blog, I was serious about giving up and this blog just gave me so much life, I feel so much better today, for the first time in life IM Happy TrULY Happy!!!!!

I found that there is a topical called Lidocaine that helps when you have outbreak. Apply with a qu-tip 5 min before you need to urinate. It helps!
Also I know it's traumatizing when you first find out but it does get easier. I went to church one day and it was comforting to hear the Bishop say it's not that bad. Your life is worth living. I really was willing to throw in the towel on my life. I was scared I passed the virus to my boyfriend. I didn't know I had it when I went back to him. By the grade of God he's negative. I was put on Acyclovir as a preventative measure but like someone else said I was scared my body would become immune eventually. So I take it when I'm stressed and feel I might have an issue or when I feel an OB coming on. Its only been 4 months and so far no more OB's. I refuse to go through that pain again. So I'll try some of the ideas I read.

Hi,

I've Gh for bout three years thanks to cheating boyfriend. I have very bad breakout often as my immune system isnt great. First of all I do take valtrex, 1 g 3x day when havin an OB and 500mg 1x day for suppression. doesnt always work, but can help. when having an outbreak I use 100% witchazel, hydrogen peroxide, and couple drop tea tree and lavander oil. I soak a papertowel and place tween vaginal folds directly on sores and let it set for 15-30 min. u can add aloe or use witch hazel that has aloe too. it stings a bit depending on severity of breakout, but after bout 5 secs becomes a good sting. I do this bout three times a day, if u put a panty liner/
pad in underwear it keeps them dry. If all
u have is only the witch hazel use it
cause even only that makes a HUGE
difference. I also use a yeast infection one day cream once cause when havin a ob everything seems screwy down there.
if having alot of itching I will use vagisil
cream after the soaks, if not I use a zinc
oxide based diaper cream as it sooths,
keeps the soars dried out and helps me
not think im dyin everytime I pee. I take a muti vit, but also found that taking an immunity booster efferevsant with c, zinc and b vits 2-3 x a day like emergancy (i thnk it work best) or airborn helps alot, will also take azo for urinary pain and it helps not havin to pee every two min and some pain, will also drink/take cranberry juice/pills to change ph down there. I also immediatly eat citrus fruit, avacados ( reaally helps) and bannanas and some berries, drink water, eat yogurt and cottage cheese and drink small amounts of buttermilk. I use this at first funny feelimg of break out, and when ever
feeling stressed/rundown. I also take
hylands nerve tonic and calms forte to
help my body not feel so stressed, and
homeopathic belladonna 30x to help
with the pain. Once u have everything its
quite cheap to maintain also. I will use everything full out for four days if actually have sores and for 2days if feel it coming on, and otherwise I just use what my body feels it needs otherwise to prevent. hope this helps :)

Hi. I was married for 10 years. I married virgin. I divorced and began ceing another man that also was married and separated at that momemnt. Since he was married for years and had children I assumed he was feithful like me and was clean - I know, very naive and stupid of me but how else 10 year vorgin married and faithful woman should think (rainbows and sun:( ). I got the gift. I was prescribed Valtrex but I don't like take meds that kill my liver and damage my kidneys and make my hair fall out, etc. So, I take a lot of Vitamin C, which helps I noticed by boosting my immune. Also, when I do get OB, I, Instead drinking meds, shave them; wet my finger; rub my wet finger in med shaving and then rub it into the sore. I found it heals sore almost immediately, releives pain and meds last forever :) Unfortunaly I have no cure for heartbreak :( Does anyone LOL

I was 20 when my first outbreak happened and I have the same story as everyone else: extreme pain, devastation, ect. However, I've always believed in homeopathic remedies and came across a book at Hastings about natural healing. The recommendation for herpes is an herb called Damiana. I started taking it around the beginning of the year, and up until right now have not had an outbreak... Unfortunately this current one is miserable, but I still have faith that the herb supplement does wonders. I order mine in bulk online. The brand is Natures Way. Also, considering starting acupuncture treatments.

I'm a 22 year old female, I've been with one person, ever. He either didn't know he had it or lied to me. I got my first outbreak years after we broke up. My doc said that's normal. The initial breakout was horrendous, second worst pain of my life(first being tattoo removal). Peeing was damn near impossible and I would hold it until I couldn't anymore because I was terrified to go. The pain was so bad that I felt like I was going to pass out every time. I only had 2 small blisters so those weren't even a huge bother. I didn't do anything for it except take the meds the doc prescribed. I was diagnosed 8 months ago and have had a break-out about ever other month so far. Nothing compared to the first and I just let them clear up on their own. Usually takes about a week. The pain is nothing I can't handle and until I go to wipe I don't even notice it. I am going to try some of the supplements people have listed so I can stop the breakouts all together, so hope that works.

I cried over it once, on the car ride home after the doctors appt, then I let it go and made my peace with it. This is now my life, and it's far from perfect but nothing I go will change it and so I need to accept it and I am strong enough to accept it. It did not change who I am, it did not make me dirty or a slut. I got the short of the stick, and someone lied and/or cheated on me. Life isn't fair, and I'm not a fan of self pity. This isn't a club anyone wants to be a part of, but since I'm a member, I'll take it and be glad it wasn't something worse.

I've found only one thing that actually helps burning while peeing, for women! - soak a wash cloth or toilet paper with cold water and hold it against your vaginal area while peeing. If the urine hits and affected areas, the coldness of the cloth or toilet paper will help ease any biting sensation. You may get some urine on your hand but, who cares! It's the ONLY way I can pee with none or minimal burning!
