Home remedies for oral herpes

Oral herpes or Herpes Simples Virus 1 (HSV – 1) is a common virus and unfortunately people who carry it will never be able to get rid of it. It can be transmitted through kissing or drinking from a glass or sharing other utensils with a person who carries this virus. HSV-1 can sometimes cause genital herpes, but HSV-2 is the main cause of it and is different from the first one. However, people who are infected with HSV – 1 are not constantly going around having disgusting blisters on their mouths. It only appears when a person’s immune system is low, before or during colds and stress. Once the herpes is cured, the virus sort of hibernates and “waits” for another immune downfall. And although there are too many creams and other medications that would help you cure your oral herpes faster, the following home remedies are equally useful too. Learn how to prevent early stage herpes because every human being is at risk of getting it.

1 Hygiene

It is very important to keep your hands away from the herpes blisters. For those who have experienced having herpes near or on their lips, the urge to scratch it, is terrible. Sometimes it can be painful and swollen and your fingers are just going to make the situation worse. If you are applying a herpes cream or gel make sure to wash the herpes gently with warm water. Apply the cream every few hours. Also, your hands must be clean when you apply anything on the herpes. And forget about kissing, intercourse or any kind or sharing utensils with other people.
