Herpes: What are My Treatment Options?
The Herpes virus continues to spread throughout the world due to the fact that there is not yet a viable and effective vaccine. However, like other viruses, there are treatment options available including prescription medications, Herpes supplements, and topical solutions.
Thankfully, there may soon be a vaccine. However, it will only be effective for women whom have not yet contracted the disease. While this vaccine does have major limitations, it does have the potential to help protect millions of women.
In the meantime, those affected by Herpes need to be proactive in treating their disease. To begin, most health care professionals recommend using a prescription Herpes treatment such as:
- Acyclovir (Zovirax)
- Famcyclovir (Famvir)
- Valacyclovir (Valtrex)
However, these medications are often very expensive, including the generic options, and may produce painful side effects. These are just some of the reasons why more and more people are choosing to use safe, all-natural herpes treatments such as herpes supplements and topical solutions provide relief in absence of an actual Hsv 2 cure.
Herpes supplements combat the Herpes virus from the inside out. For instance, the ingredients in most reputable Herpes supplements contain proven ingredients such as Lysine and Coenzyme Q10. These ingredients help suppress the disease so that there will be longer periods of time between outbreaks. Additionally, Herpes supplements also contain essential immune boosting properties which will further help delay outbreaks.
The second non-prescription option is to use a topical solution. Topical solutions contain ingredients which will help reduce a current outbreak. For example, if you are currently having an active outbreak, using a topical solution will help speed-up the healing process. However, using a topical solution will not help to delay future outbreaks from occurring.
Using a topical solution to treat Herpes is a short-term solution to a long-term problem. If you have Herpes, including the less serious strain (HSV-1) of the disease which produces cold sores or the most serious strain (HSV-2) which produces genital Herpes, you need to educate yourself about your options. This includes researching the disease itself as well as learning about the benefits of using all-natural herpes treatments to help suppress the virus.
In the end, if you choose not to use a prescription medication, I would recommend using a Herpes supplement. While this option will not provide as much immediate relief for a current outbreak, it will typically help delay future outbreaks.
Whichever method you choose, remember that you are not alone. Millions of others are affected by Herpes as it can be transmitted from any skin-to-skin contact, not just through sexual intercourse. That being said, you have nothing to be embarrassed about. Take control of your health and your disease. The healthier you are, the more your body will be able to suppress the Herpes virus.
Don’t be misled by false claims and outrageous statements such as those Herpes treatments which claim they can cure the disease: they can’t. In fact, any Herpes treatment that claims it can cure Herpes is in violation of Federal Law. Instead, trust those products that contain proven ingredients which have been shown to help delay future outbreaks from occurring.
