Could psoriasin help ease discomfort of herpes break outs

Could psoriasin help ease discomfort of herpes break outs

I: I do not believe psoriasin gel will be of great help. The active ingredient is coal tar, which will unlikely be strong enough for the intense pain from a herpes infection, and may actually cause irritation. The best thing to do is treata herpes outbreak, is with prescription medication specific for herpes (acyclovir, or valtrex), and use advil/ Ibuprofen for pain.
Please see your doctor for appropriate treatment.
Good luck. ...Read more

My dr. Didn't give the herpes blood test because I didn't have sores or discomfort should I had the test. Heard from some 1 that my ex might have it?

You have other health issues and life is hard enough even if you are fully well. Don't trouble yourself; move on. ...Read more
