Most people who’ve been infected with HSV never know they have the disease because they have no symptoms. The signs and symptoms of HSV can be mild and go unnoticed. When the first outbreak occurs it is generally the worst, but some people never experience a second outbreak. Other people can experience outbreaks as long as 40 years after the the first outbreak. In my experience, the beginning of my outbreaks seemed unrelenting, one after another. At that time remedies were few and far between, but today there are many good choices, both prescription remedies and nonprescription remedies. This article will describe genital herpes and offer remedies, even a natural remedy solution.
When genital herpes is present, symptoms may include:
- Small, red bumps, blisters (vesicles) or open sores (ulcers) in the genital, anal and nearby areas
- Pain or itching around your genital area, buttocks or inner thighs
The initial symptom of genital herpes usually is pain or itching, beginning within a few weeks after exposure to a herpes infected sexual partner. A few day later, small, red bumps may appear. The lesions rupture and ooze or bleed. Eventually, scabs form and healing begins.
Women’s sores can erupt in the vaginal area, external genitals, buttocks, anus or cervix. Men’s sores can erupt on the penis, scrotum, buttocks, anus, thighs or inside the urethra.
Herpes ulcers can make it painful to urinate. You can experience pain and tenderness in the genital area until the infection clears. During an initial outbreak, you may have flu-like symptoms, such as headaches, muscle aches and fever, as well as swollen lymph nodes in the groin area.
Genital herpes effects each person differently. Some people experience numerous episodes each year but for many the outbreaks lessen over time. These factors may trigger outbreaks:
- Immune system suppression
- Friction caused by such things as vigorous sexual intercourse
Sometimes the infection can be contagious even when lesions aren’t present.
There are many remedy options to help speed up the healing time of lesions and to reduce the frequency and severity of recurrences.
Zovirax, Acyclovir, Valtrex and Famvir are prescription drugs that can be useful for some people. These drugs can either be taken everyday as a “suppressant” or only during an outbreak episode. These drugs can have side-effects and can be very costly.
The Dynamiclear Combat Kit is an all natural product range that is designed to clear outbreaks quickly when they occur and reduce any possible recurrences. Many people have had great success with this combination of products. The kit combines both “topical” and “internal” approaches to maximize the results.
Good rest, exercise and fresh fruit and vegetable juices help strengthen the immune system. As with any disease or health condition an approach to improving diet and nutrition should be taken. An appropriate diet high in lysine and low in arginine, with vitamin supplements, may benefit those suffering from the herpes virus.
It has been found that the amino acid, Lysine, retards virus growth, so you should include in your diet foods high in Lysine and decrease the foods high in L-Arginine (an amino acid that supports the herpes virus).
