When you are suffering from a herpes outbreak, your frustration over the lack of control regarding the situation can be disconcerting. A growing patch of herpes blisters is quite anxiety producing. There are various prescription drugs that can be of benefit to some people. Zovirax, Acyclovir, Valtrex and Famvir are prescription drugs that can be taken everday as a “suppressant” or just when an outbreak occurs. These drugs do have possible side-effects and can be very costly in some countries, but they do provide a measure of control over the herpes simplex virus.
Steps You Can Take to Gain Control of Herpes Outbreak Episodes:
1) As with any disease an approach to improving diet and nutrition should be taken. An appropriate diet high in lysine and low in arginine, with vitamin supplements, may be beneficial for those suffering from viral diseases, in particular the herpes virus.
2) There is a nonprescription topical treatment that kills the herpes virus on contact when applied to open lesions. It is not a cure but can reduce the intensity and the frequency of outbreaks.
Ingrediants: Sulfur is one of the main ingredients in this aqueous, odorless herbal base. This liquid is applied to the site of an active herpes outbreak when open lesions have appeared. The sulfate molecule is an important component which assists the solution in penetrating the viral membrane, causing the destruction of the virus on contact. Unlike sulfur taken internally, the sulfur in Dynamiclear [the name of the nonprescription antiviral liquid] is applied externally and is unlikely to cause any reaction in people who are sulfur intolerant.
