i used a dab of the activated mms on my lip where i had a herpes sore. the next day it did dry up and the following day it was gone. this was a herpes sore that was already getting a little better before the mms but ir went away and dried out alot faster after the mms. the other thing i like about the mms is that i brushed my teeth with it. i have peridontal disease and a chronic pocket of infection in the back of my last molar that comes back on and off. after the third day of brushing my teeth with the mms the sore pocket was not inflamed any longer and after the fifth day it was basically gone. i will see if it comes again b/c in the past i would get an Antibiotic
shot at the dentist in the pocket and it would go away only to return a few weeks later. so we will see. i have not had a ginital breakout to test it out topically on there yet but i will when i do. also you take mms interanlly, starting out slow to kill the virus hiding in the body. i will keep you all posted with my results as time goes by.
