Other then meds is there anything else that I can use that will treat me
Counseling helps if you’re struggling with the emotional side of it, but an antiviral is the only treatment I’m aware of. They won’t cure it but they can help prevent outbreaks
Stay away from your triggers. for me these are acidic things like coffee and citrus and tomatoes and pineapple, too much Sun, stress, getting sick.
L-lysine helps a lot, I buy it in powder and take it daily and extra when I have an outbreak.
Valtrex also helps minimize an outbreak.
I have a silicone brush pad that I use to exfoliate my lips, and use moisturizer constantly — and this helps the most.
