If you have herpes then there are times during an outbreak that will cause you embarrassment. It happens to most everyone with herpes at one time or another.
When I first experienced an outbreak it was on my face, on my nose to be exact. My nose swelled up, turned red and broke out with yellow weeping lesions. It was terrible and there was no hiding this from anyone. I wanted to retreat from the world and lock myself in my apartment. And the really terrible aspect of these outbreaks were that they were so frequent. This was at a time before Acyclovir and other viral suppressants. It took me quit a while before I found a doctor that could help me. My visit with a dermatologist finally brought me some relief from this embarrassment. Back then, only a few treatments existed. One treatment was using an ultraviolet light and some sort of medication applied to the skin, killing the herpes. The doctor decided against that treatment and prescribed a solution of chloroform and alcohol that was to be applied periodically to the lesions. This also killed the virus because chloroform is a protein solvent. It was a harsh treatment but it worked and the outbreaks became much less frequent and I gained some control over what felt like a hopeless situation.
When I say that the treatment killed the herpes virus, please remember that it wasn’t a cure. Always some herpes survive to hide in the nervous system to possibly emerge later. But my outbreaks became much less frequent and for that I was thankful. No longer did I feel like hiding away in my room, embarrassed for people to see me. Today a person with herpes has many more choices for remedying their situation. Today when I experience an outbreak I use a nonprescription, natural topical solution. This product works better than anything I have ever tried, and I’ve tried many different things, prescription and otherwise.
