Dr. Grobe explains how long a typical genital herpes outbreak lasts and discusses natural treatments.
Herpes is a sexually transmitted infection that once you get it, does not go away.
So once you have contracted that infection it becomes about management of outbreaks.
So conventionally we manage outbreaks by using antivirus like Acyclovir or Valtrex. Naturopathically, alternatively, lysine works quite effectively at reducing the number of outbreaks, and then topically using that as well once you have an outbreak can reduce the duration of that outbreak.
