how do you know which treatment or medication works best. I've been searching treatments that could work. but my friend just let me know that everything I was taking was probably making it worse. is it best to go the doctor prescription way or the home remedies way.

      I take valacyclovir too...500mg twice a day during an outbreak and it clears it right up. I've also been told olive leaf extract helps kill the virus too.

      Tests like Genesight are absolutely awesome!! it’s similar to genetic tests like 23andme but instead the results are a list of medications that will and will not work for you :)
