Treating Herpes With Homemade Remedies

Treating Herpes With Homemade Remedies

The Herpes labialis is a very common condition that can hit more than once in a lifetime. The cause and due to a virus that belongs to the family of herpes viruses and that was identified as HSV-1, and therefore is not given to outbursts of fever or debility, as dictated by popular belief.

Herpes labialis, the name derives from the fact that very often affects the lips, but the infection can also occur on the eyelids and contours of the mouth and elsewhere. In most cases, the lesion is unique, and it manifests as an erythematous-edematous modest in size, which soon becomes covered with stretched vesicles, hemispherical, about 2-3 mm thick, gathered in clusters.

In the beginning they look clear, but over time it becomes turbid. The confluence of more vesicles may give rise to a lesion-like blistering, that during one week breaks and turns into scabs.

Below are some natural remedies to combat this annoying condition 

Chervil Infused

Prepare 40 g fresh chervil leaves (Anthriscus cerefolium) to rest in boiling water for about 10 minutes. Drink three cups a day.

Saponaria Decoction

Prepare the decoction of Saponaria (Saponaria officinalis) by boiling 40 g of dried roots in a quart of water for 5 minutes. Drink two cups during the day. One thing to remember is that the decoction should be made fresh every day

Chamomile Lotion

Soak 20 g of common chamomile dried flowers in a boil down juice of 1 liter of almonds. Leave covered for 10 days shaking around the pan occasionally. Strain and put the liquid in a bottle. Apply the lotion several times a day.
