well actually the trigger foods are not like allergies. its the chemical in the food that the herpes gets energy from so to speak. the things that trigger me: caffine,nuts,chocolate,ciggs (i quit those anyway),antihistamines,staying up too late, getting sweaty and hot from work or exercise, pms.
as soon as i felt that tingle i would eat a baked potato with cheese and have a big glass of milk. or french fries and chicken strips. next day poof and gone! i thought that was neat. i didnt think that it would work the first time i tried it.
