Genital Herpes Treatment
at Home

Start your home-based genital herpes treatment if and when you sense changes signaling an impending outbreak. This isn’t ESP – it’s paying attention and knowing how to recognize a herpes prodrome. 

Herpes Prodrome

A prodrome is Mother Nature’s warning of an impending herpes outbreak. Prodromal symptoms often occur prior to a full-blown eruption. 

The signals can start from half an hour to a couple of days before the outbreak begins. However, only 70% of sufferers experience prodromal symptoms, the rest do not.

Outbreaks in the anal area are common.

The earliest signs of herpes outbreaks may be a distinctive tingling sensation accompanied by an itching or burning sensation in the affected area.

Start your prescribed antiviral treatment as soon as you detect prodromal symptoms or suspect the onset of an outbreak.

  • Use lysine for herpes control. Take 3,000 mg of L-Lysine supplement (obtainable from health food stores) and follow up with 1,000 mg taken three times a day.
  • Hold an ice cube against the suspect area until it melts. Repeat several times during the first day after prodromal symptoms show up.
  • Swallow a multi-vitamin containing Zinc. Follow up with a vitamin B12 capsule. Repeat daily during the outbreak. Note: a vitamin B12 injection administered by your doctor is even more effective than a capsule.
  • Pay special attention to personal hygiene. Take at least one warm "sitz" or shallow bath daily after the first lesion shows up (more if your schedule permits).
  • Dissolve a good handful of Epsom salts in the bathwater and soak your lower body for ten to fifteen minutes. These salts soothe and dry herpes sores and may help to relieve any itching and tenderness.
  • Gently wash the lower body with fresh water after soaking; use a mild non-perfume soap or shower gel. If bathing is inconvenient, take 2 to 4 warm showers daily.
  • Carefully dab the genital area with a soft towel and then use a hair dryer on a low setting to complete the drying process.
  • Cover the lesions with a layer of Biogenic Aloe Vera gel (obtainable from health stores). Use a q-tip to avoid touching the sores with your fingers. Apply two or three applications daily to speed up the healing process.
  • Wear loose fitting cotton underpants. Unlike synthetic material, cotton absorbs moisture and allows air to circulate more readily. In addition, the loose fitting underwear won’t cause unnecessary chaffing (some women prefer going without underwear during an outbreak).
  • Total abstinence from sex is essential during genital herpes treatment to avoid infecting your partner.
  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Banish negative thoughts and avoid stress.
  • Stay fit, maintain a balanced alkaline diet and drink six to eight glasses of alkaline water daily.



Many people respond favorably to Herpeset – an herbal remedy that helps toward minimizing or preventing herpes outbreaks.

If you haven’t tried it yet, get a free bottle, and if it works for you, make it part of your herpes treatment.

If you already use Herpiset, spray two doses under your tongue immediately after the prodrome starts, and repeat three times a day during treatment.

Herpeset Precautions

  • Wait 20 minutes after eating or drinking before using Herpeset
  • Brush your teeth and rinse your mouth with cold water before each application
  • Do not touch the spray nozzle with your tongue or fingers, and replace the cap after use

NOTE: Herpeset has been thoroughly tested and vetted by our RemedyBusters team. In fact, it is the only medication our herpes specialist, Kimberly, uses – she is infected with both cold sores and genital herpes. 

In addition, with regular use, Kimberly has been symptom-free for over 14 months (see our Home Page for more details).
