Anonymous asked: hi, i got diagnosed with herpes last year (teenage cissexual female just fyi) and I was wondering if you knew any like 'home remedies' to help with outbreaks. my first outbreak was over a year after i had sex with the person that gave it to me and it was the worst one. since then i get minor outbreaks every few weeks and its kind of painful. so yeah, i wanted to know if there was any way to maybe stop outbreaks being so frequent and painful, help please?
SecretsofAurora is a great resource for anything herpes related. Here are some natural remedies she’s blogged about and Food’s to avoid and food’s to eat with herpes, TheSexUneducated also answers a lot of herpes related questions.
Now as far as stopping outbreaks, the main thing is you have to boost your immune system. That involves eating garlic, taking echinacea and basically being as healthy as you can. That doesn’t work for everyone, so if not you can get on medication that’ll suppress outbreaks.
