Is There A Treatment For Genital Herpes?
Many people ask that question out of curiosity, and many others are searching for themselves or a friend. You can span the entire internet and find 1000 products that boast they will treat herpes but almost always the products are more meant to provide comfort more than to completely remove the virus.
Sometimes products fall short of common sense
Now I am absolutely not a doctor and it is always recommended to use the medicines doctors prescribe as the primary treatment of herpes but there are some other things you can do to mitigate them even further. For example:
Direct sunlight and or heat can inflame your exterior (skin) which is amplified if an affected area is contacted. It is recommended always to keep affected areas away from an unusual amount of heat to reduce irritation and reaction.
Perfumes and Chemicals
Modern products contain many, probably too many, chemicals and harsh substances. Some of these products are known not to react well when coming in contact with the herpes virus For this reason perfumed soaps, antibacterial soaps, and female products like vaginal deodorant and/or douches all may need to be avoided completely.
It is often desirable to wear tighter clothing for appearances but as many people find out the constant rubbing of the clothes on infected areas can become extremely bothersome. It’s not a difficult change to be more selective in the clothes you wear. Selecting more open, airy, and cooler clothes can actually reduce swelling and aggravation which in turn reduces the viruses ability to outbreak.
For minor pain relief it’s always easy to use standard pain relievers. Some examples are:
- Tylenol or acetaminophen
- Advil or ibuprofen
