Increase the dose: Assuming acyclovir or valacyclovir for suppression, during an outbreak you should increase the dose for a few days. Check with the doctor or clinic who prescribed it for the exact dose and duration. You can also ask if you should take a higher dose for ongoing treatment.

I just read something about a product called "Herpes Cleanse" it breaks down the ICP47 barrier and the virus itself. But would it actually work?

I just read something about a product called "Herpes Cleanse" it breaks down the ICP47 barrier and the virus itself. But would it actually work?

It's a scam: ICP47 is an HSV gene; inhibiting it in theory could be the basis of herpes treatment. But Herpes Cleanse is a quack product that has no effect on ICP47 or the virus. Do not waste your money on it. The ONLY treatments effective against herpes are the traditional antiviral drugs, i.e. acyclovir, valacyclovir, and famciclovir. Also forget docosanol (Abreva), lysine, and other "natural" products. ...Read more
