Herpes simplex virus. Please let me know.
There is no cure but by taking medicines, you can suppress attacks and also improve your health. If you have good immunity, you get less attacks. Regular exercise and healthy diet. Be positive.

Hello- Genital herpes can be transmitted through direct contact with an infected blister or sore, usually through sexual contact. It can also be transmitted when there are no symptoms present. HSV-2 infection is usually passed on during vaginal or anal sex. HSV-1 is usually transmitted by oral sex (mouth to genital contact). Fortunately you have performed safe sex so chances of acquiring HSV infection are negligible.

Caused by the herpes simplex virus, the disease can affect both men and women. Pain, itching and small sores appear first. They form ulcers and scabs. After initial infection, genital herpes lies dormant in the body. Symptoms can recur for years. Medication can be used to manage outbreaks.

Shingles is triggered by the varicella-zoster virus (also known as VZV) — the same virus that is responsible for chickenpox. Even after chickenpox has got treated, the virus sometimes does not leave the body, lying inert in tissues in the region of the spinal chord and brain. It can then go on to cause shingles — a disease with very different symptoms — usually several years after the initial infection. The homeopathic medicines that I have found to be ideal for cases of shingles are Ranunculus Bulbous, Croton Tiglium, Asterias Rubens, Cedron, Dolichos, and Dulcamara. I feel that Ranunculus Bulbous works best in cases of herpetic eruptions that cause a lot of itching. Croton Tiglium is more suited for patients suffering from the stinging and smarting pain of eruptions. I prefer to prescribe Cedron in cases of shingles with radiating pain. Dolichos and Dulcamara are also homeopathic remedies that are effective for herpes zoster. Since these homeopathic medicines are derived from natural substances, they are safe along with being successful and being free from side-effects. For individualistic medicine selection you can visit me online. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects.

Herpes cannot be cured, but natural treatments can help keep the virus dormant, control symptoms and lower pain from breakouts. If you're wondering how to get rid of herpes symptoms, eat a healthy diet, consume more antiviral herbs and beneficial supplements, apply essential oils, and relieve cold sore pain
