How to control your herpes outbreaksfrom:
Herpes is a virus that affects the human nervous system,
modifying the DNA of the nerve cells supplying the skin through
which the virus entered. Most patients suffer from recurrences
that may vary in frequency from once in a lifetime to several
recurrences a year. The average rate of recurrences is about
four times per year. Recurrences usually take about a week or so
People living with herpes face a sad reality. There is no cure
for the disease yet. Although encouraging research is
progressing in the field, there is some sound advice that can be
followed to control the relapse and frequency of outbreaks.
Some of these factors that believed to cause herpes outbreaks
- Excessive exposure to sunlight - Chocolate, nuts and poor
diet - Lack of proper rest - Menstrual cycle - Emotional stress
- Physical stress or repetitive trauma such as in sexual
intercourse - Injury - Illness accompanied by fever - Surgical
trauma - Steroidal medication such as asthma medication Stress
is a major stimulant of recurrent herpes outbreaks. You cannot
eliminate the stress in your life, but it certainly is possible
to decrease the frequency of recurrences by controlling the
stress level that we expose ourselves to. Getting plenty of rest
and leading a balanced life is critical in controlling herpes
outbreaks. Typically, important events involving an increased
level of activity such as a wedding or graduation can trigger an
outbreak. Each individual is different and will come to identify
what triggers an outbreak in their particular case.
Managing genital herpes during pregnancy is very important to
the health of the soon-to-be-born infant. Neonatal herpes
although rare is a very serious condition. Infants exposed to
herpes simplex virus can experience brain infection, seizures,
prolonged hospitalization, mental retardation, and death if the
infection takes hold.
Certain nutrients and vitamins such as beta-carotene, vitamin C
& E and zinc can help prevent herpes outbreaks. It has been know
for some time now that the amino acid lysine can help to reduce
both the frequency and duration of outbreaks. Good sources of
lysine can be obtained from the following foods: margarine,
plain yogurt, Swiss cheese and other dairy products, whey,
papaya and beets.
Since the recurrence pattern of herpes is almost as varied as
the people who harbor the virus, you every precaution possible
should be taken to keep the virus in remission. For more
