Herpes, HSV1, HSV 2, cold sores… It doesn’t matter what it called, or how you say it, you aren’t getting rid of it. And that’s what seven hundred thousand new Americans here each year, both female and males. Herpes is generally one of the most easily transmitted sexual infections in the world today. There are a number of herpes types. However, the most common types of the infection are herpes simplex 1 and herpes simplex 2.
But that isn’t to say you are doomed. There are ways to completely stop Herpes outbreaks for good, and in this ever-more-popular article, I tell you how I, stopped my herpes outbreaks for good. Please, note how I said “I stopped my Herpes outbreaks for good”, and didn’t say I cured my Herpes for good. I’m guessing you already know this, but just to make sure you know, there is no known cure, for completely removing your Herpes. Lets, first of all, take a look at three of the most common myths when it comes to Herpes.
Honey and Herpes
In recent years, people have started floating the idea that you can remove Herpes outbreaks with Manuka Honey. Well, the thing about Manuka Honey is it is pure honey, and its naturally high sugar content stumps microorganism growth. All this helps with, is reducing the inflammation of the Herpes outbreaks, but they will still be clearly visible, so not really helping much at all. Some people, however, think that covering their Herpes outbreaks with normal honey that they buy from supermarkets is going to cure them when in actual facts, it is more likely to make the infection worse.
Can You Catch Herpes From A Toilet Seat?
The answer to this question is no. Because the HSV-2 Virus (Genital Herpes) can only survive for mere seconds off the Human body, this makes it no possible to contract Herpes from a toilet seat. According to Abigail Salyers, the President of Microbiology nobody has ever caught an STD whilst sitting on a toilet seat, “Unless they were having sex on it”, so you can stop flushing the toilet with your elbows now! Do make sure to wash your hands though.
Genital Herpes Can Not Be Treated
Although Herpes is incurable, that does not mean that it can’t be treated. Most people tend to stick to the more “normal” method of medication, such as Aciclovir, which is an antiviral tablet that you need to take 5 times a day, for five days when you get a Herpes Breakout, and this may cause them to go away. However, Aciclovir makes you throw up and gives you headaches, so many people tend to stick to preventing Herpes outbreaks, with natural home remedies. The problem with traditional herpes treatments is the fact that these usually work generally on the symptoms of the infection instead of healing the body and repairing DNA itself.
It is important to note that according to traditional medicine there is not yet a known cure for herpes, and as a result, people usually start looking for natural herpes treatments and remedies that can give you same relief without side effects.
