09 Jul Topical Treatment for Herpes


topical treatment for herpesThose living with HSV often search for a herpes treatment that not only will help to heal their current lesions, but prevent future outbreaks from recurring. These sufferers often turn to an oral or topical treatment for herpes in an effort to keep the virus as bay. Topical treatments often seem like a good choice because they are applied directly to the skin to directly kill the infection, but while this option seems promising, it can actually do more harm than good. A topical HSV treatment can help to alleviate symptoms initially, but may degrade the skin and promote more outbreaks over time. Natural herpes treatments taken orally are a far better alternative because they attack the herpes simplex virus from two different angles — they promote fast healing while forcing the virus to remain dormant in the system. …Read More»

Herpes ZosterConsidering that nearly one in three people will develop shingles at some point during their lifetime, it is no wonder men and women everywhere are wondering, “Is herpes zoster contagious?” but the answer to this question is not as simple as it seems. Shingles can not cause shingles in another person, but a person with shingles can pass on the varicella zoster virus (VZV) to a non-infected individual. If a person has never contracted chicken pox, he can be infected with VZV and develop chickenpox…but not shingles.

You are more likely to develop shingles if you are over 60 years of age, contracted chicken pox before the age of 1, or have a weak immune system. You can decrease the likelihood of developing shingles outbreaks by using an effective herpes treatment. …Read More»

18 Jun HSV 2 Transmission


hsv 2 transmissionAnother large sum HSV 2 transmission lawsuit has been filed — this time in DuPage County, Illinois. An unnamed woman is seeking over $200,000 in damages and future herpes treatment costs from her ex-boyfriend, also from DuPage. The woman is claiming that her boyfriend, who was married during the time of the incident, knowingly infected her with genital herpes and neglected to inform her of his condition. According to court documents, the woman claims that her former boyfriend told her that he was clean, had no STDs, and was committed to a monogamous relationship with her.

This case is quite similar to a recent herpes news article in which an Ohio woman was granted $900,000 from the man who had given her genital herpes.
