I put hydrogen Peroxide on the blisters to stop the pain and it actually took some of the pain away. It was so relieving. i have this drawing salve stuff to help with the blisters. my mom say they will go away if i put that on there. my blisters aren't bad. i don't even think they are herpes blisters. but i am not taking a chance. if they are Friction blisters, stress blisters, or herpes blisters peroxide helps the pain dn dries them up because if the salt or you can try warm water and sea salt, and with a q- tip to the blisters. that will make them heal faster as well. hope this helps.

Dear Anonymous,

I have actually never heard of this so I did some research and found that this home method is very much disputed as a form of treatment for herpes. Have you consulted a doctor about this? Also, are you currently on any antivirals? They are highly effective in treating and preventing outbreaks.

As far as the peroxide use in question, the most I found was that there is something called Oxygen therapy but hydrogen peroxide should not be used in the genital area. Unfortunately, I could not find ANY reliable sites worth mentioning and hope that someone else on the site could help you in providing more information.
