There are many over-the–counter treatments for herpes simplex viral infections. I have personally tried a few and did get some fair results. Abreva seemed to work fairly well from among the nonprescription drugstore brand herpes remedies. To me, it was comparable to the results I obtained from prescription Acyclovir ointment.
There is one nonprescription formula that works the best for me and is far superior to anything I’ve tried. It is called Dynamiclear. There is no comparison to either over-the-counter nonprescription herpes medication or prescription drugs such as acyclovir. In my opinion, Dynamiclear is far beyond anything I’ve tried, including prescription drugs.
Dynamiclear is applied directly to the open herpes lesions, and only applied once. There is no need to reapply during the herpes outbreak. This liquid kills the virus on contact. A scab will form right away. Mind you, it is not a cure, because some virus particles remain, but many people after using just one Dynamiclear treatment never have another outbreak, or the oubreaks are less frequent and less severe.
The formula for Dynamiclear has improved. I use the older formula and there is a bit of a sting when applied. That never really bothered me. The new formula has been improved to remove the sting, and for some that is important.
If you have herpes simplex virus, I urge you to try Dynamiclear. It truly is best.
