Herpes is a very painful disease. It is characterized by small painful fluid filled blisters which appear on the lips, face, back and genitals. It is caused by the herpes simplex virus which resides in the nerve ganglia after an initial exposure in childhood. The virus is very contagious and an infected person can spread it by kissing or performing oral, vaginal and anal sex with a healthy person.
If a healthy person comes into direct contact with the sores or the fluid that oozes out of the sores he/she can contract the virus. The virus can also be transmitted by using the infected person’s spoon, cup, towel or toothbrush. During the preactive state when a person scratches the area where there is a tingling sensation and where the sores are about to appear and then touches another person or touches other parts of his/her body, the virus is passed along. The initial onset of the infection is marked by painful, itching and weeping sores.
5 Best Cures For Herpes
Bath With Neem Water
Bathe twice daily, with neem water. Boil plenty of water and add lots of neem leaves to it. Boil for five to ten minutes or till all the strength of the neem leaves are drawn into the water.
Cool the water a little and then bathe with it. Neem will kill the virus rapidly and will uproot it from the body. It will heal the sores and alleviate the itching and pain. Neem will also ensure that there are no outbreaks of the infection in future.
Baking Soda And Cornstarch
Powders like cornstarch and baking soda have excellent moisture absorbing and drying properties. Mix baking soda and cornstarch in equal quantities. Sprinkle the mixture on the sores and pat it with a wad of cotton to dry out the sores.
Do not dip the cotton wad into the powder otherwise the whole mixture will get contaminated. Baking soda will also provide instant relief in the burning and itching.
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is a very effective remedy for getting rid of the herpes virus for good. It has very powerful antiviral properties which can kill the virus and prevent its sojourn inside the nerve ganglia.
Its anti-inflammatory properties reduce the swelling and pain and alleviate the itching. Take a cotton ball and dip it into some tea tree oil. Dab the cotton all over sores three or four times daily.
There is nothing like neem oil to eradicate the virus rapidly and effectively. Take a cotton wad and dip it into some neem oil. Smear the oil with the cotton wad all over the sores.
Neem oil has a very strong and pungent smell but it is better to put up with this discomfort than to have an outbreak of herpes three or four times every year.
Make garlic paste by grinding several cloves of garlic very finely. Mix the garlic with a two three drops of olive oil so that it can stick to the skin. Smear the paste on the sores and keep for as long as possible. Apply daily to cure herpes swiftly.
