Been diagnosed with genital herpes or cold sores? Here's some herpes medications that are available.
The good news is that you can control and limit your herpes outbreaks with proper Herpes medication.
When you first get diagnosed with herpes it can seem like your life, especially your dating and sex life, is so over.
This is an irrational belief. Millions of people in the United States (1 in 6 !!!) have genital herpes. And 80% have oral herpes or cold sores.
Up to 30 million people have used these medications to help control and limit their herpes.
They work! And they will work for you too!
And with a good prescription from a doctor, you can reduce your outbreaks to as little as ONE A YEAR. And significantly reduce risk of giving to your partner.
Good news huh? Sure is! It's the wonder of modern medicine. And your herpes medications can be VERY AFFORDABLE.
There are different types of medications for genital herpes and different therapies you can go on including primary, episodic, and suppressive.
You can pretty much use the same medications to control and limit your outbreaks of cold sores. This is useful if you are dating or can't have cold sores appearing on your lips for your job or profession.
Acyclovir is a very useful and medically powerful drug for herpes suppression. Learn what Acyclovir is and what ways you can use it to limit herpes outbreaks. This is the genital herpes medicine I use especially when I am sexually active.
Valtrex is a powerful version of acyclovir and very powerful for reducing the primary symptoms of Herpes (genital herpes or cold sores). Valtrex is also very effective for herpes suppression.
Good question. A herpes medicine or medication is a drug that is clinically tested and proven to work for stopping the spread of the virus. A herpes prescription is proven to work on millions of people. You can buy them from any pharmacy.
A herpes remedy is more of a holistic approach to limiting the herpes virus. Examples of herpes remedies include lysine, red marine algae, olive leaf extract, and boosting your immune system. All of these herpes remedies have a proven recored of limiting your herpes outbreaks.
Personally, I do a lot of things to boost my immune system which keeps most of the herpes outbreaks away. Aside from eating healthy, I also exercise like doing yoga or running.
And if I am sexually active with a non positive girlfriend then I will take acyclovir or valtrex for suppressive therapy.
I recommend trying all these things. You don't know what will work until you try them.
