Found "acyclovir" an utter peace of expensive chemical crap. It can only attack Herpes when it has already destroyed the cells.;(
The only thing helping with outbreaks, before getting behind the real cause, was balm.
It has the unique feature to protect cells, so Herpes can't enter the cell at all. I might have gone to suicide with out it. Had mostly appearing Herpes in my face, though it might well work for both types. Don't even know which type I have?
However applying some balm creme as soon as you mention it comes along to the skin, reduced it 95-99%.
I'll check out what you suggested, anything nature provides is 1000 times more effective with zero side effects then industrial crap, which quite often breaks more then it helps.
