My Herpes Keeps Coming Back. How Can I Treat?

If you have ever had an experience of oral herpes, you will realize that it never goes away. Once you have herpes, it is always recurrent. Herpes is caused by “Herpes Simplex Virus”, but oral and genital herpes come from different groups. Mostly, it is transmitted by direct contact, such as skin, and indirect contact, such as straw, glass, or spoon, especially in a meal without a serving spoon.

The Characteristics of Oral Herpes

In the early stage, oral herpes causes swelling, redness, and pain. After that, it forms a group of blisters. In the first outbreak, although you recover from those symptoms, the virus is still inside your body by hiding along nerves and ganglions. Whenever you become weak or have low immunity, this virus will replicate itself and cause recurrent.

The Treatment of Oral Herpes

The efficient prevention of recurrent for those who have oral herpes for the first time is taking “ antiviral drugs”. However, for those who have had herpes outbreak many times, taking medicine may not work. Therefore, those must take care of their health, get enough sleep, and exercise to prevent a recurrence.

Emotional and stress management as well as enough nutrients, especially vitamins, can favorably reduce herpes recurrence. Vitamins that play a role in body's immune and get rid of recurrence are vitamins C and D.

The Caution of Oral Herpes

We suggest that patients with recurrent oral herpes should take vitamin C 1,000 mg per day since it can improve the body's immune. Moreover, it not only prevents the recurrence of herpes but also the flu. On the other hand, daily sunlight causes vitamin D synthesis in the skin.

In patients having easy infections or herpes, you should do a blood test to check vitamin levels. If the vitamin D is very low, you must take supplements
