How to Get Rid of Genital Herpes

Have you had enough of the physical and emotional pain of genital herpes? Get the right treatment today, and get your life back on track.

In Brief

Genital herpes is a very common viral infection that affects around 1 in 5 people in the United States. Genital herpes can have a devastating effect on it’s sufferers, as it carries a very negative social stigma. Despite the negative and exaggerated myths surrounding it, herpes is very controllable and responds very well to regular treatment. It’s finding the right remedy of getting rid of genital herpes that’s the hard part, as different people respond to different types of treatment.

Healthcare providers often prescribe medications such as Valtrex, Famvir or Zovirax to control genital herpes. While these medications are great at suppressing outbreaks for many people, they do nothing towards building the body’s natural defenses in order to fight outbreaks and prevent future outbreaks from occurring. In addition, they are expensive, and can often be harsh on the body, causing unwanted side effects.

The Right Treatment

Alternate therapies exist to build up the immune system, suppress the virus, relieve symptoms, speed healing time and prevent outbreaks. These therapies can be medicinal, herbal, or homeopathic, and are available discreetly online and contain ingredients scientifically proven (in studies from the University of Maryland, Biotherapy Medical Journal, Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia among many others) to fight infection and prevent outbreaks.

After months of rigorous independent testing by our dedicated team (all sufferers of genital herpes just like you), we have uncovered the facts about some of the leading genital herpes treatments available today. Below you will find detailed analysis of these products to help you make an informed decision in your own choice of treatments to fight genital herpes.

Treatment Reviews

1. Herpeset

Herpeset is an all natural genital herpes treatment that has a unique delivery system, it comes in the form of a spray bottle that you spray under the tongue two to three times a day. The spray method is used to allow Herpeset to absorb into the blood vessels in the mouth and bypass the digestive system, which can slow down the absorption of a treatment into the body.

Herpeset is very fast acting, whether this is due to the spray delivery system or not is up for debate, but Herpeset does indeed start working much faster than other genital herpes treatments we’ve tested. Our testers reported a cessation of pain and itching within minutes when used during an outbreak. Healing times were also drastically reduced, with one tester who usually has breakouts lasting up to two weeks reporting a complete clear up within four days.

As a preventative Herpeset gets top marks too. The dosage recommendation is to take Herpeset a few times a day, and while this can get a little inconvenient compared to some of the other treatments, the results speak for themselves. Our testers reported drastically reduced outbreaks across the board, with some reporting no additional outbreaks at all during the testing period.

Aside from the slightly inconvenient dosage requirements, Herpeset passed our tests with flying colours. Herpeset is fast, effective and is one of the cheapest treatments on a per-dosage basis, and comes highly recommended.

2. Choraphor

We were very sceptical about this genital herpes treatment at first. Our tester applied Choraphor according to the instructions at the onset of an outbreak, and reported a very intense and uncomfortable stinging and burning sensation. The outbreak lasted as long as usual and seemed to be as intense as usual (same amount of blisters, same duration) so we were ready to chuck it out as totally ineffective. However, as we stipulate testing must go for the recommended treatment period, we had our tester persevere.

A few days after the outbreak had cleared our tester came back with some additional news. She was so concerned by the painful application and the seemingly no effects on duration that she didn’t even realise she had her first outbreak ever with no itching whatsoever. Our tester also reported that many of her usual symptoms did not appear either, which include nausea and dizziness.

After the treatment period our tester’s report was very positive. Despite the initial pain and seeming lack of effectiveness, the Choraphor was shown to be very effective on subsequent outbreaks. In additional outbreaks, the pain of application was diminished to an uncomfortable sting, and the duration and intensity of outbreaks was reduced significantly. In addition, our tester praised the almost immediate elimination of the uncomfortable ‘side effects’ of the herpes outbreak, and indicated she would continue to use Choraphor to treat her condition.

In conclusion, while slow to get going and initially uncomfortable side effects have bumped Choraphor down to a number #2 slot in the reviews, this genital herpes treatment is very effective and well priced compared to most others we have come across, and as such still comes highly recommended.

3. Herdox

Herdox is a natural alternative genital herpes treatment designed to enhance immunological functioning (boost the body’s natural defenses) and suppress HSV-2 replication, thereby reducing the number of outbreaks and reducing severity and healing time when outbreaks occur. It is based around L-Lysine, a proven anti-herpes nutrient. Herdox is refreshingly honest in it’s product details, and is described as a natural means of suppressing the HSV virus, designed to change genital herpes from a huge problem to a minor and occasional aggravation.

Our trials found Herdox to be fairly effective in reducing the healing time of an outbreak, and all testers involved (myself included) found the time between outbreaks to be increased.

Herdox’s creator Progressive Health claims that with extended use outbreaks will become less and less frequent and will not last as long with long term use we can definitely see the benefit of Herdox as a genital herpes treatment. Our general consensus was that Herdox was a good product for the long term and would probably work best hand in hand with another more powerful symptomatic treatment, such as Choraphor or Herpeset.

4. Simplexin

Simplexin is an immune booster and virus suppressant tailored towards sufferers of genital herpes. It comes from the MicroNutra line of products that has had great success in helping those with viral conditions overcome their illnesses. We decided to review Simplexin due to the buzz on the internet regarding the other MicroNutra products, to see how their genital herpes treatment stacks up.

MicroNutra takes a slightly different approach to treating genital herpes, by strengthening the immune system rather than attacking symptoms in an attempt to naturally suppress the virus. The main aim of Simplexin is to reduce frequency of outbreaks and speed up healing time.

Our trials found Simplexin to be fairly effective in reducing the healing time of an outbreak, and most testers involved found the time between outbreaks to be increased. MicroNutra claims that with extended use outbreaks will become less and less frequent and will not last as long.

Simplexin, like Herdox, is another ‘slow roller’ genital herpes treatment, with maximum benefit to be gained from long term daily use. If you are looking for a symptomatic treatment Simplexin may not be for you, but as an aid to building the immune system up over time Simplexin works excellently.

5. H-Away

H-Away is an essential oil based genital herpes treatment. It is a topical treatment that is applied directly on to a breakout by dabbing small amounts on to sores with a cotton bud.

Our tests found H-Away to be fairly effective on a recent outbreak. The application was very gentle on the skin and has a soothing effect on itching and pain coming from the outbreak, but had to be re-applied several times to remain effective at keeping these symptoms at bay. This was found to be very inconvenient when taking into account the application method. Healing time was reduced by a few days on average, but the treatment seemed to prevent the ‘scabbing’ process, with sores staying moist for a longer period of time. This unusual effect aside, it did help the healing process in the end, and that’s what counts.

Another downside of H-Away is the fact that to get a complete genital herpes treatment regime, it must be used in conjunction with another product (H-Prevention) which effectively doubles the price, and adds to the inconvenience factor by having to juggle two different treatments.

On a cost-per-dosage basis, even with the two treatments factored in, H-Away is still pretty decent value and it does reduce healing time, so all-in-all it’s not the best, but still not a bad treatment at all.

6. Herpes-Wise Ebook

We reviewed the Herpes-Wise Ebook as there is a number of these sorts of products cropping up on the internet, and while not a genital herpes treatment in the style of the products above, it still represents an option many sufferers may consider, so we decided to put it to the test. The book claims, among other things, to have techniques to control herpes outbreaks within 48 hours.

The book contains various recipes for genital herpes treatments and remedies and that readers can make in their own home from herbs, natural foods and plants.

Obviously not as practical and fast acting as the above products, as the reader has to buy the ingredients and concoct the remedies themselves and therefore doesn’t get the benefits of fast acting relief and effectiveness of the top two. Additionally, much of the information can be found for free with a few google searches, and a lot of the resources in the book are simply links to sites with genital herpes information.

The book does have its benefits though. It has a lot of information compiled in one source, which can be handy when you need to flip through it or check things like dietary information. It comes with a couple of bonuses, including a treatment plan you can fill out and a natural remedy guide to getting good deep sleep, which can be beneficial to herpes sufferers. It’s also cheap, and as it is an ebook you can download it instantly upon payment, so there’s no delivery time to worry about.

It’s not going to cure herpes, and it’s not going to stop outbreaks in two days flat as it claims, but it can be a handy resource for someone already taking an effective genital herpes treatment and looking to experiment with home remedies.

Noted:  All the products you should ask for further details so as to make your best choice for your genital herpes. It is best for going to see your doctor for the right advice and treatment.
