For years, I was having frequent outbreaks of Herpes Simplex on my buttock. I was prescribed several different things~oral meds and ointments (very expensive). A friend suggested I take Lysine. No more outbreaks. Now M.D. wants me to take the vaccine. Am hesitant to do so. Am doing some research.

I would really think twice (or maybe 15 times) before I'd have sex with someone who has herpes and is treating himself with a home remedy.

Apologies. I meant to say prevents rather that cures.

Thanks members, for your comments. I found nutritional yeast heals herpes simplex. One chronic sufferer tried it and said it was the first time in years he didn't have a cold sore.

I already eat a healthy diet & get plenty of exercise, but I am fortunate not to have encountered or suffered this std.

I take an L-Lysine tablet (1,000 mg) and olive leaf extract (in Vegecap form) every day to help prevent outbreaks. If I feel "the tingle" I increase the dosage. Works well for me.

Erika M thank you for the peppermint oil suggestion for cold sores. Not that I get them very often BUT I do use YLEO and have a few bottles of peppermint oil so will have to remember when next I get a cold sore.

Our cats are mad for our vegan cheese. And no, eggs are not "great" for us.

Just looking at the photo makes me feel cooler, thanks for sharing.

Too, too cute! I didn't know dogs faint...

Mmm! I love Asian cucumber salads! Japanese cucumber salad's incredible too.

Sounds simple when it's presented like this, but it's incredibly difficult...
