Home remedies to fight herpes

As soon as my immunity decreases, and God forbid, a runny nose will catch me - immediately a terrible herpes appears on my lips. I belong to a group of people (in Poland it is almost 29 million) that is affected by this disease.
Home remedies to fight herpes
Unfortunately, you can not fight it completely, because it is so. "dormant enemy", but in addition to store ointments such as zovirax, hascovir, we can also use home remedies for this condition.

What factors contribute to the appearance of herpes?

  • overwork
  • stress
  • weakened immunity (e.g. cold)
  • period
  • minor skin damage (cosmetic procedures - chemical peeling, mesotherapy, fillers, treatments using lasers)
  • contact with the sun (especially when sunbathing on the beach)

Stages of herpes formation

Herpes most often appears around the mouth. The first sign of its formation is itching or burning of a specific place. If we can't deal with these signs - the next stage is bubbles.
In my opinion, this is the worst stage, because bubbles are leaking liquid. Then we get herpes.
After some time, the bubbles burst, scabs are formed. When the scabs fall off after herpes usually there is no trace. As if she never was.

How to get rid of her?

Unfortunately, as I wrote - you can't really get rid of it completely, but there are a few home remedies that help fight herpes.
1. Garlic - maybe not very pleasant (smell) way, and also very baking when applied, but it is quite effective. It has antibacterial properties, which is why it helps get rid of herpes faster. Just cut a clove of garlic (juice should come out of it), apply to the place where the herpes is. This method works best for the first ailments, i.e. baking or itching of the place where herpes is to appear.
2. Onion - a little more pleasant when it comes to smell. When applied, it cooks less than garlic. However, I have the impression that the performance is also weaker.
We use as in the case of garlic - we apply the juice to the place of herpes origin, or cut several slices and fill with sugar. Let stand daily and spread with the resulting syrup. Syrup This one is also used in the case of bothersome cough and works much better than any pharmacy syrups.
3. Aloe - we came to my favorite in the fight against everything. Aloe has antibacterial and disinfecting properties, which is why it is worth using it for herpes. Applying aloe juice (leaf) or using tonic (mixed aloe leaf with a glass of boiling water. After an hour, strain through gauze) accelerates wound healing. In addition, there is no unpleasant smell as in the case of using garlic and onions. I also recommend using the tonic to wash the face (works great with acne).
4. Lemon - has antiseptic and cleansing properties. We apply a slice of lemon to the lips where the herpes is formed. This method probably works best already during the development of herpes, and not as in the case of previous points - before the blisters.
5. Honey - my sweetheart, which, like aloe, is my favorite in natural care, and here also in the war on herpes. Its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effect means that it is not indifferent to our enemy.
In addition, it relieves pain, nourishes and regenerates the skin.
The sick place should be lubricated with a thicker layer of honey as often as possible. Apparently linden works best, but I use at the final stage multiflower and also is doing great.
You can add a few drops of fish oil to honey. I don't know, I didn't use it with fish oil.
6. Lemon balm - this time a wonderful herb that has antiviral effects. Just boil the lemon balm bag. Cool and lubricate herpes with it. Lemon balm works well in the early stages of herpes. Later, unfortunately, the effects are quite poor.
7. Tea tree oil - I must confess without beating that I didn't use this method because I can't find real oil on a regular basis. I have encountered some mixes so far.
The oil disinfects wounds and relieves pain, and above all dries it. Accelerates the process of skin regeneration and wound healing after herpes.
Mix a few drops of oil with the cream. We lubricate herpes. We do not apply pure oil, because we can hurt ourselves instead of helping. The oil has a very strong effect.
8. Baking soda - relieves inflammation and rashes. It is sometimes used to treat burns.
Make baking soda by adding a few drops of water. We lubricate herpes.
I do not like this method, because the pulp dries after some time and can fall off by itself.
9. Aspirin - anti-inflammatory, soothes the conditions caused by a virus attack.
Crush the aspirin tablet, add a few drops of warm water until a mush appears (as in the case of baking soda). We apply on herpes. This method has the same minus as soda - it falls off after drying.

10. Vinegar - we go to two ways that I confess I have not used so far and I have some resistance.
The vinegar works like a lemon - it disinfects the wound, so that the herpes virus does not multiply.
It should be lubricated before the occurrence of bubbles (then they are supposedly the best effects). However, we must be careful because vinegar dries the delicate skin of the lips very much.
11. Toothpaste - the fluoride it contains is toxic to herpes. It inhibits cellular respiration. Apply the paste at night (to dry).
I do not recommend this method, because if we have a paste with a lot of fluoride - it can cause tissue necrosis.
For me, this way is too risky.


I hope to help you a bit in the fight against herpes. For the day, I recommend you, my beloved, to use patches (in case we go to work, school, etc.) so that we avoid touching and thus spreading the bacteria.
I forgot to add - I recommend using cotton buds to apply any slurry or even ointment. Touching herpes causes the risk of touching some place on the face and spreading bacteria on it. Be sure to wash your hands after all the anti-herpes treatments (be it pulp or onion).
Also remember not to drink from the same cup or bottle with a person who has herpes. Once infected with herpes, man becomes a lifelong carrier, which usually appears at the least expected moment.
Greetings to all who are currently fighting this trash!
Maybe you have some proven ways to fight herpes?

    Antiviral medicine is worth using especially when the virus attacks us often and herpes build up every few weeks. longer treatment with these tablets and after the problem for many months, because the virus remains dormant. But you still need to take care of immunity, a healthy diet, moves and maybe some vitamin support.

  2. Avatar luiza 22 February 2019 / 19: 13

    for me the best and fastest way to get herpes are tablets. They work quickly and allow me to avoid frequent recurrences of the virus.

    I tried many patents for the fight against herpes. but it always ended up that although I used a patent, herpes did not disappear anyway. there is nothing to charm you with. the virus remedy works best for this virus.

    • dpblogpl dpblogpl 4 December 2018 / 13: 45

      Fortunately, I have less and less now. I used to have it regularly, especially in autumn and winter (when I was sick), but I also had it in summer.

    When did you have herpes? Perhaps it has not healed yet? If I have herpes, I grease a thick layer of Carmex, which has a soothing and soothing effect. If you do not have a Carmex, I recommend ointment ointment with vit. AND.

    I had a bad wound after herpes, I don't know what to do next ... help

  6. Avatar music of your skin 1 May 2013 / 14: 36

    hey, I am also suffering, and ointments like Hassian have ceased to work
    helps me:
    ozone soap
    tamanu oil
    masc or zinc paste - the most

    and also drinking something to strengthen immunity because it is the reason for herpes
    e.g. la pacho tea strengthens immunity

    Oh how I hate this trash. Sometimes he can beat me several times a year. Especially after strong stress, before menstruation, after too much effort and in the sun (in the mountains after burning my face by the sun I had ONE GREAT SPRAY). What works best? Tea oil. I put a cotton bud soaked in it and hold it for 2min. I repeat this activity every hour or so and the thirst does not even develop further. This is a great way to dry the damn thing.

    • Avatar GoodForYouDP 30 January 2013 / 19: 59

      Thanks for the advice. So oil is good not only for drying pimples;)

    • Avatar Seanaith 30 January 2013 / 20: 59

      For me, the skin unfortunately got used to tea oil and the bloat did not respond to it anymore. But the trick escapes far 🙂

      Fortunately, they are not used to me, because I use it only for major failures, which are less and less tfu tfu;)

      There can be many reasons. From cold feet to long exposure (especially in the winter) sun :)

    As a specialist in herpes (for several years I had her regularly every 2-3 months, healed me after two weeks instead of several days) I declare the following: applying ANY to herpes causes its faster growth. It doesn't matter if it's garlic, onion or our finger. Touching the infected site causes its irritation and increased itching. If we would like to treat ourselves with home remedies, then from the abovementioned let's smear vegetables with herpes juice. And it is better to swallow aspirin because it has blood thinning properties, which accelerates the excretion of the virus from it. In addition, the herpes virus is activated thanks to a certain protein that is found in dairy products (milk, cocoa, chocolate). It is true that there is another protein that "deactivates" it, but the drug containing it is not available in Poland. In summary, what is the best way to get herpes?

    1. DO NOT TOUCH INFECTED PLACE (and there is no itching)
    2. Eat all B vitamins
    3. As soon as the first symptoms appear (itching and burning), we have two things to choose: zovirax and compeed patches (due to the highest concentration of alcovir)
    4. Ww. we use medications NOT more often than once every 3-4 hours (otherwise the lips will start to dry out, the cream is not absorbed completely and "rolls" which does not look very beautiful)
    5. After 3-4 days we are absolutely healthy :)

    • Avatar GoodForYouDP 6 January 2013 / 11: 12

      Thank you for your comment! great that someone who knows so much about it :)

      and garlic works especially for me. I always care when I get back from work, be sick at home and heal much faster :)

      I have not heard of swallowing aspirin, only smearing with mush. But I am going to swallow right now, since it has such a beneficial effect!

      The worst thing is that I can't always recognize the first symptoms - burning and itching. For example, with this herpes now I probably missed them, because this is how I would start working right away.

      And I do not like ointments, because they just look ugly. I only lubricate at home. At work, I definitely choose slices.

      Best wishes:)

    • Avatar Anonymous 8 January 2013 / 23: 21

      ah, so from today we do not go to doctors and do not take medicine? We do not touch herpes so as not to spread this herpes further. That's why the patches are good. But the mornings that are after a while must breathe so that they can heal faster. And here you need ointments.
      In general, I agree with the advice but consultation with the doctor on this matter is important. And since there are medicines for it, there is something to it. Ah, and I'm not saying you take heviran to never have herpes. but to fight it

    • Avatar Basia {SlonecznyBalkon.pl} 31 January 2013 / 16: 50

      For me, two things affect herpes: Herpex ointment (much better than all Vratizolin and Zovirax) and Heviran tablets. Unfortunately, if I do not deal with it so quickly, I have a congo on my face: / And unfortunately for me - every cold is 'seasoned' with herpes: /

  15. Avatar Anonymous 6 January 2013 / 10: 32

    Few people know that you should take pills for herpes. It is a virus so it should be fought. I got Heviran - available only on prescription. When it comes to patches, they are good because they prevent the spread of herpes but they don't heal. Ointments are the best, except for the above, I got vratizolin from my doctor. And of course vitamin B 🙂
    I'm writing about herpes on the lips 🙂

    • Avatar RafalL 6 January 2013 / 10: 40

      Heviran is a one-line drug, i.e. you choose a whole pack (or even a few) and pray to God that we won't have any more drugs (which is not so obvious). And yes, the slices heal :)

    • Avatar GoodForYouDP 6 January 2013 / 11: 14

      In my opinion, patches also heal. I used to not apply anything but used slices and herpes came down after 3 days, and I usually get tired of it for up to a week. Only that I started using them as soon as I felt itching.

    useful note, even very 🙂
    I recently caught a cold and on the second day 3 blew up my lips 🙁
    I heard that there are some pills for this virus 🙂
