456 Home Remedies for Genital Herpes


As of yesterday my gynl diagnosed me with GH. When I found out I found myself crying on and off for a few hours, I was freaking out. I feel absolutely disgusting & this is literally the WORST pain I have ever had to endure. I wouldn't even wish this on my worst enemy. My Dr prescribed Lidocaine and Acyclovir. The Lidocaine helps but it only last for about 30 minutes and then I start feeling the pain slowly come back. I work as a server & I haven't worked since Monday and I have to go back tomorrow night. I have no idea how I'm going to be able to work with such pain down there. I can barely sleep cause the pain keeps me up at night. Last night I woke up & started crying because I was so overwhelmed by what I am going through. I need something, anything that'll help ease this pain & make this first OB heal as soon as possible. I've had it for about 5 days now. Can anyone please help me. I'm desperate for some type of relief. I can't physically, emotionally & mentally take this anymore & it's only been 5 days :(


I have been living with GH for 11 years. I know how every last one of you felt. I got it when I was 17 years old. It hurts to saw but he was my first. I ended the relationship. My first BO was horrible. They had to insert a catheter because I was in so much pain I couldn't even pee. My next OB was three years later. I understand if you're mad at yourself because you feel like they should've told you. Yes that's try but now we are here. I've had three kids since it happened and I can say that my husband has supported me. I don't get OB as much but when I do it's not as often. Don't let this get you down because I haven't. I've lived a normal life and you can too.


I am 17 years old and I was diagnosed with GH .. it was devastating my fiancé wasn't mad at me and neither of us were unfaithful but now we are finding out that we have a little girl on the way .. the best thing I have used for GH was taking a bath in Epsom salt the lightly blow drying yourself dry. it helps and for the itchyness or pain I take ibuprofen. I have mine under control.

21 and still understanding

I've been suffering with HSV for about 5 months now. My first OB was the worst. I honestly don't know how many I've had over time BC they were so mild. But I'm on my second bad OB and yesss it's killing me. I really hate that I have this terrible disease. But I've continue to take warm baths with Vaseline bath beads and lightly blow dry my sores. It only seems like I have an OB when my cycle is coming down. So I know when I should prepare for it....

Please help

Hi everyone
I'm 22 and yesterday got diagnosed with GH I don't know what to do, the doctor didn't explain anything to me he said he only had a few mi ruts and gave me tablets and gel and told me it was a lifelong condition, I couldn't stop crying, I have two children and a partner of four years. I'm too scared to tell him invade he thinks in cheated on him and too scared to ask him invade he's cheated on me :( and if he has we would break up and he would tell everyone I have it and I live in such a small town! I suffer with depression anyway and this condition is making me want to kill myself. The pain is unbearable I have had it for four days now and on my second day of taking tablets, I need some help or advice please! I can't take this much longer I'm terrified to even kiss my babies and terrified of people knowing, I feel they all know ..


I'm on a college campus so my resources are limited. This is my second OB and while it's less excruciating than my first it still keeps me up at night...this is day 4 without sleep. I started my antivirals today, I've tried ice but it hurts to even press the ice/cold pad against the area. I have no bath tub to do sitz baths in and I pee squatting over the toilet because that's the way the least amount of urine touches my sores. I got a prescription from my gyno for lidocaine and it worked miracles during my first OB but it hurts to apply that normal? Please someone help I can't take another sleepless painful night


Drinking plenty of water and getting lots of sleep helps reduce outbreaks. For a remedy try soaking in a warm salt bath for 10minutes. Often this soak will soothe the irritation for awhile, providing you some temporary relief.


Okay so I recently went to the gyno and had a full std panel. To my surprise it came back positive for hsv 1 and hsv 2. Its been about a month since I got that news and I guess I'm having my primary outbreak currently(I'm going on day 3) and this is seriously the most painful thing I've ever felt. I started my valtrex yesterday. I think the worst thing is when I have to pee it is excruciating. I also have been having to pee quite frequently so was wondering if that was normal. I've been drinking normal amounts of fluids. I have found that aloe Vera gel with lidocaine relieves it a good bit. Also warm Epsom salt baths as well. I really only don't hurt when I'm sitting down or laying down, and with my work I stand all day. Does anyone know of anything to make it not so painful to pee? I'm seriously in tears every time I go. I've also started taking a daily combination of vitamins to hopefully help my immune system. I really hope after this initial OB that it won't be this bad because this is ridiculous.

After discovering what I thought were blisters I went to the doctors and found out I had genital herpes. My boyfriend was unfaithful. I am completely devastated.
I have a few open lesions above my clitotis that are right next to each other. The are oozing. I am taking the anti-viral Meds and the topical cream the doc prescribed but was wondering if there are any other remedies to help 'dry out' these lesions. I work 12 hour days and am a mom. So it's been hard to get around in so much pain. And every time I use the restroom I cry. I already drink a lot of water due to me having kidney stones and trying to pass it. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.


So after what I thought was a yeast infection, and finding out my boyfriend had cheated on me with a girl that has an STD, I thought it a good idea to go get checked since I've been having symptoms. I read up on almost every STD/STI under the sun and went into the clinic hoping for the best, but expecting the worst. And what do you know? The nurse says, very rudely I may add, 'Oh, you deffinately have herpes'. So I've been diagnosed with Genital Herpes and am having my first OB and man is this the worst pain I've ever dealt with. They say your first OB is the worst and I believe it. I need help, I need as many remedies or quick tips or tricks to relieve the pain and itching, I can't deal anymore! I can't go to the bathroom, not even in my own bath water. I can hardly walk without waddling like a penguin from place to place. I've barely slept since the OB just keeps getting worse and the pain is keeping me awake. I was prescribed the antivirals or whatever they are, I've been taking them 3 times a day, but I only started yesterday. I'm ashamed of myself, I don't know how I could let this happen, I feel disgusting and like everyone looks at me lower now, even those who don't know my condition. I feel lower in the world, I'm so depressed, I'm in so much pain, and this site really helped me, seeing so many other people going through it too, and working past the pain, and it makes me feel like I'm not alone. Thank you, and good luck to everyone!
