Herpes is caused by a viral infection and can be transmitted by touch and when saliva, secretions or blister fluid are transferred between people. Generally, the virus is passed on through sexual contact with an infected person, though it can be passed on through infected surfaces. It usually lies dormant for a while and then manifests itself when an individual is stressed or otherwise immunocompromised.
The virus may create symptoms just once or return every few months. Before an outbreak of Herpes, people experience soreness and itchiness for 2 or 3 days. After this, blisters that are red on the outside form on their own or in clusters. They may be filled with clear fluid and be itchy or painful. Herpes simplex HSV-1 causes cold sores around the mouth or eye area, while Herpes simplex HSV-2 causes sores to appear in the genital area. Urination can become painful and women may experience abnormal vaginal discharge. Chickenpox and shingles occur as a result of the Herpes varicella-zoster virus. They may follow other symptoms including feeling sick, chills or fever, difficulty urinating and diarrhoea. After a few days, the blisters scab and fade, generally leaving the person immune from future outbreaks.

Antiviral drugs or topical medications may be prescribed to help treat the affected area directly or to relieve symptoms. Pain relief medication can be taken if the infection is painful. Many people have found allicin spray or cream to be an effective treatment. To prevent the virus spreading, the area should be kept clean and hands should be thoroughly washed after applying creams. Electronic devices that use lasers can be used to target cold sores. The diet should be primarily, if not completely, plant-based with a variety of fruits, raw vegetables, vegetable juices and beneficial fat sources such as olives. Water intake should be increased to at least 2 litres per day and alcoholic drinks should be avoided. A regular exercise regime that raises the heart rate should be established and complimented by a proper sleep pattern. When infectious, patients should avoid intimate contact, as this could result in transmission of the virus. They should also not touch the affected area and not share any items that have come into contact with the affected area such as creams. Avoiding any known triggers will also help to reduce the number of outbreaks.
Experiences and case studies
A 76-year-old woman was suffering from sciatic pain in her left leg and had developed a herpes zoster rash with clusters of blisters and redness at the bottom of the spine. After taking antiviral medication, the rash dried up and healed but the pain was still there and it continued to get worse until the lady was limping. She had 1 bioresonance session, which significantly reduced her pain and after a second session, she no longer felt like her leg was useless, but had a spring in her step. Shortly after her course of treatment, the patient was able to go on a symptom-free walking holiday in Nepal.
