Herpes - 20 yr. old female - help please!

Hi, I was wondering if you all could help me, you seem to be very informed people.

I am a 20 year old female. In July 2009 I began to experience the first signs of herpes, but on my finger left hand. There was a few blisters that spread between my pointer and middle fingers. I didn't know what they were at first but after some research figured they must be herpes. The blisters would heal with a tiny black dot in the center.

I began to apply tea tree oil and oregano oil to the blisters with some degree of success. I also took Rux Tox and started L-lysine a few times a day.

In July I was drinking a lot nearly daily, just broke up with a significant other, and smoking marijuana. The initial breakout freaked me out and I didn't know what to do really. After the initial breakout on my fingers cleared up, a new breakout occurred with menstruation that month, But this time in the genital area. The breakouts are not that bad, just frequent and annoying.

The current problem seems to be with my face though, tiny pimple like blisters appear quickly (fever blisters) and they are causing me to feel self conscious about my skin. each blister is fairly small and I've been treating them with garlic, oregano oil, and tea tree oil. The blisters scab up with a very thin scab but when the old ones heal new ones re forum. So the current problem is mostly with my face and genital area, with the occasional one or two blisters forming on my hands. The blisters on the hands are just small raised bumps, usually not even red and hardly noticeable. The blisters on the face seem like whiteheads but then heal with scabs. The blisters in the genital area are not very big and seem
to come and go frequently. In the shower the genital area gets itchy. Also I would apply honey to the genital region, i read somewhere about the medicinal effects of honey on herpes.

To sum things up:

Symptoms located: fingers and outer thumb area, around mouth, genitals, chin, and sometimes on lips

First started: heavy drinking, poor sleep habits, emotional stress, exposure to sun (summertime) (I'm not sure when i acquired the disease, It could have been years ago or from more recently smoking pot with random people)

It's worse: before/during period, the breakouts seem pretty random some of the time.

It feels better: when I'm with friends having fun, I hardly notice it.

Sleep pattern: wake up at 10am, go to bed at 2am (most days)

Sensitive to: people being mean to me for no reason, criticism in an unfriendly way, when I am around unhappy people their depression takes hold on me

State of mind: Always trying to better myself, I am an artist and love to help people and spread joy,

Foods: I've been trying to eat Lysine rich foods such as yogurt, avacados, beans.. They seem to be helping.

Past Diseases: This September I came down with a case of Mono, I was very hard on my body this summer, I took off 10 days from work and stayed at my mothers house, her homeopathic doctor
gave me some things to take for the mono, I had a mild breakout even when getting LOTS of rest at my moms house and eating VERY healthy and organic foods, I didn't mention it out of
fear of judgement by my mother. The Mono cleared up fairly quickly as did the breakout, but I don't know why I even experienced a breakout at that time since I was resting so much and taking care of myself.

Reactions: No bad reactions to any drugs I can think of, but I can't wear cheap rings because the metal makes me break out.

History of homeopathic treatment: My mother has given me the occasional homeopathic treatments, Arnica Montana for bruises from riding my bike, The Rus Tox I tried this summer. The Rus Tox didn't seem to make any difference, but It didn't make it any worse.

Other Symptoms: I have yellow mucus that I can cough up in the mornings, Tired most days, and generally dry skin.


I just want these outbreaks to stop, they are very annoying and I would like to focus my energy on new things instead of herpes. Plus I just want my skin to look nice again. After reading through
the forms my initial thoughts were to try Natrum Muriatcum and Sepia, can these remedies be tried together or should I try one then try the other?

Any advice or help you can think of is MUCH appreciated.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
please try DULCAMARA 12c every 3 to 4 hours whenever you have the eruptions.

if you respond, the next time you can go for 30c every 6 hours if it recurs.

Ok, I got the Dulcamara, and I've been taking it a few days. Nothing too noticeable is happening except for the most recent outbreak on my finger seems to be clearing up slowly. However there seems to be new erruptions still happening. My face seems to be clearing up slowly as well but new bumps are still forming, just smaller. I also came across some ointment for coldsores called lysine plus that seems to help my face. In the genital region I'm having a fairly uncomfortable outbreak though. Should I just keep going with the Dulcamara and see if it clears up in a few days? Or should I try a different remedy? Also I forgot to mention that I've always had bad pain with menstruation starting on the first day continuing on to the 2nd day. I've been applying Manuka honey to the genital sores, should I keep doing this or stop? Also I've been taking lysine, zinc, colostrum, and a multi vitamin a few times a day and drinking Echinacea tea.

please take PULSATILLA 30C two doses everyday for a week. take the doses once in the morning and once in the evening, both in empty stomach.

please note after about 10 days the condition and sensations of the skin.

I started taking the Pulsatilla 30C last night, So far I've taken 2 doses of it.

The outbreak in the genital area is nearly cleared up (it got worse, then better after stoping the Dulcamara it seems, or maybe it just cleared up on its own.)

however, I am experiencing another outbreak: one blister on my tongue, one on my face and on my fingers. There was a blister on the left of my tongue yesterday but that one went away and now there is one on the right side. I think it will go away quickly though. My face has patchy dry spots where each tiny blister is located. There are 6 small, slightly reddish spots that started out looking like papercuts, 3 on different fingers on each hand. They are not very noticeable and dont ich but are unsightly. Also there are tiny blisters on my chest that look like little fever blisters that appear under the nose. Also let me note that some of these blisters you can squeeze and they act just like white head pimples. I have a positive outlook on things today but feel kindof emotional and helpless, but hopeful that in the next few days the Pulsatilla will help. Also the other day I noticed that around 8:00pm I felt uncomfortable. Also another thing I remembered, when I was young I would bite my nails a lot, I don't know if that helps at all knowing that. Is there anything else I can do while I wait for this to clear up? THANK YOU SO MUCH for helping me :)

pulsatilla will help you..

if biting nails was a sign of nervousness, pulsatilla is the remedy.

Hello! I've not posted in a while because I haven't felt the need. However I recently acquired some strange welts on my torso
and they are not going away so I thought I could use your help again.
