The alternative supplements and treatments do very little if anything in combating herpes. The antivirals, acyclovir (zovirax), valtrex and famvir are the most effective treatments that we have, bar none, in spite of all the ads all over the Internet for all sorts of sometimes strange treatments. Cost-wise, generic acyclovir is least expensive.

Beyond the antivirals, the other things you can do are to de-stress, get some exercise, eat well and get enough sleep. In other words, help your immune system do its job.

"Do the Right Thing. It will gratify some people and astound the rest." - Paraphrased from Mark Twain
