Why Does Herpes Hurt So Much?from:
Both types of Herpes Viruses live in neural ganglia near the
site of infection. For Cold Sores the virus lays dormant in the
area around the TMJ nerves, in genital herpes the virus lays
dormant in the sacral lumbar area. When the virus activates one
of the symptoms is shooting pains and tenderness into the nerve
where the virus has been living.
This kind of pain that the Herpes Virus inflicts on its host (or
poor sufferer) is similar to the nerve pain of sciatica, and as
the breakout continues, it becomes localised to the site of
first infection. The pain then is more radiating and can be
incredibly intense. In genital Herpes this can cause discomfort
when sitting, urinating and in severe outbreaks even walking can
worsen the pain.
With cold sores (Herpes), the pain can be exacerbated by wind,
salty or acidic foods and splitting if in the corners of the
mouth. As with any type of break in the oral mucosa, it is
extremely difficult not to play with it with the tongue or
teeth, which in turn make it, take longer to heal, but with the
intense pain - what do you do?
A mixture of topical applications and internal herbs help to
minimise pain whilst treating the Herpes virus. St John's Wort
is a great herb for treating Herpes, as it has an affinity to
viruses, and was historically used to treat nerve pain. St
John's Wort is also a great Nervine often used for treating
depression. Before considering using St John's Wort to treat
Herpes, it is crucial to check in with a Naturopath or Medical
Herbalist as St John's Wort does interact with some prescription
Topically Propolis is extremely effective to minimise the
recurrence and pain of a Herpes outbreak. Studies have proven
that Propolis cuts down the recovery time and the severity of
the outbreak. Often Herbalists make a balm or ointment that be
applied to the affected area. It is essential to use a cotton
bud or some kind of applicator to avoid spreading the infection.
Having a friend to talk to about symptoms of the Herpes virus
may help to alleviate some of the physical pain, especially with
genital Herpes. This is a fully loaded virus, it sticks around,
taps into the nerves and strikes at the emotions guilt and
shame. Having to hold all of this in and cope with being
uncomfortable and run down is a lot to have to carry. There are
also support groups around each community where stories can be
shared and solutions found.
For a well-rounded and individual Herpes Wellness plan, it is a
great idea to consult with a Naturopath or Medical Herbalist.
Every infected person will have a slightly different symptom
picture and will have different triggers. The best way to avoid
the pain of Herpes is to build an impenetrable immune system,
which will keep the virus dormant forever. I think of Herpes as
a barometer for the host's health. If the host is strong, in
integrity and balanced in mind, body, feeling and spirit, then
the virus will have no room to move. However, a glitch in any
area and the virus can come alive and revel in the misery in
