compresses.& tea helps for herpes/shingles/coldsores/chickenpox

I would suggest he apply lapaucho herbal tea compresses about 4 times a day for
20 minutes each time,
also to drink tea of same herb.
this herb is also called pau d arco and is a great help to a wide variety
of problems.
esp great for herpes , etc, candida/thrush problems

I buy my herbs from


if you buy the bark , cold soak it overnight
about 3-4 tablespoons to 3 cups of water
in a non metal pot.
then in morning, let boil for about 15 minutes (no more)
or it will be bitter.

pour off one cup (8 oz) for doses internally.
take about 1/4 a cup dose from this, 4 times a day .

into the remaining decoction in the pot,
use 2 strips of flannel or cotton or muslin
and dip both in the warm tea.
take out ONE and lay it on sores.

when it cools down , set it aside and use the other strip.
when you are ready to do another compress later,
reheat the tea and use fresh strips of material.

also :
cold sores / and or Herpes


1 teaspoon burdock root
1 teaspoon dried and powdered goldenseal root
1 cup boiling water

combine herbs in a glass
pour boiling water over them
let steep 30 minutes strain
drink in about 4 doses a day
up to the one cup.


wash for sores:

1 teasppon echinacea root
1 teaspoon yerba mansa root
1 tablespoon white oak bark
1 cup boiling water.

combine herbs in a glass container
pour boiling water over them
let steep 30 minutes
use clean cotton balls,
and apply as a wash
topically over all sores.


other herbs good for herpes include:

hyssop, juniper, lemon balm, licorace,sage
peppermint, rhubarb, witch hazel,elderberry

hope this is of help.
btw anytime in the past that i have ever gotten a cold sore,
i apply a small paste of crushed sage with a bit of warm oil directly to the sore..
about 3 times a day.
then at night use a bandaid to apply paste for sleeping
so as not to stain pillows etc..
usually the cold sore clears up within 1-2 days no scarring.

Also pascalite clay might be of great help
you can get that at same website I believe.

I apply a small dab mixed with a few water drops to any insect bites I get.
about 3 times a day it greatly reduces pain and itching of the area,
and keeps it from spreading.. since most of my bites are from
hobo or recluse spiders, this is a great value clay to me.

it is also effective against coldsores/herpes sores etc
(see the info on it at this link where I buy mine from )

hope something here is of help to you,
