The annoying companion: How does herpes develop?

The cause of herpes is the herpes simplex virus, which can be transmitted in various ways. Both through direct skin contact, for example when kissing and living closely together, and indirectly through sharing towels, glasses, lipsticks, etc. Once the herpes simplex virus has settled into the nerve cells, it remains for life and can become active again due to certain triggers such as stress or a weakened immune system.

Did you know that...?

... many people carry the herpes virus without ever developing visible symptoms? They can unknowingly pass the virus on to others. Therefore, it is advisable to always be careful and take precautions to minimize transmission.

How you can recognize herpes:

The most common signs by which you can recognize herpes are small, painful, fluid-filled blisters that usually form around the mouth or in the genital area. They are often accompanied by redness and swelling and can itch, burn, or cause an uncomfortable tingling sensation. Also flu-like Symptoms like Headache & Migraine, fever, swollen lymph nodes, and fatigue may occur temporarily before or during the outbreak.

In addition to physical discomfort, the outbreak of the virus can also have emotional effects. This often includes shame, discomfort and worry regarding transmission. Therefore, it is important to know that herpes is a widespread disease and that millions of people worldwide carry the virus. Although there is no cure yet, there are already many approaches to alleviate the symptoms, which you can find further down in the article.

What is the difference between herpes simplex and herpes zoster?

The two best-known types of herpes viruses are herpes simplex and herpes zoster. Herpes Simplex is caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV) and is typically manifested by painful blisters. It is divided into type HSV-1 and type HSV-2. While type HSV-1 is usually responsible for cold sores, type HSV-2 is the main cause of genital herpes. However, since the viruses can be transmitted to different parts of the body, it is not possible to draw a clear line here.

Herpes zoster, on the other hand, is caused by the varicella zoster virus (VZV) and mainly appears as shingles. As a typical symptom here is often accompanied by a painful rash that runs along a nerve or nerve area.

How long does a herpes outbreak last?

The duration of a herpes outbreak can vary from person to person. As a rule, a typical herpes outbreak lasts about one to two weeks. However, it is important to note that herpes is a chronic virus that remains in the body even after symptoms subside. After the initial outbreak, additional outbreaks may occur that are usually shorter and less severe. However, the frequency and severity of outbreaks can vary from person to person and may be affected by factors such as stress, sun exposure, hormonal changes, or a weakened immune system.

Did you know that...?

...the herpes virus goes through different phases?

During the outbreak, the herpes virus goes through different phases: In the Prodromal phase, also called the harbinger stage, symptoms such as tingling or itching appear, this stage can occur hours to a few days before the onset. The Vesicle phase, when the characteristic fluid-filled blisters become visible, is the main phase of the herpes outbreak. The vesicles can multiply rapidly and new vesicles can be added. In the Crust phase the blisters burst open and crusts and scabs form, which protect the skin underneath during the healing phase. Therefore, it is also important not to scrape this off, as this delays healing and can increase the risk of scarring. Finally follows the Healing phaseduring which the affected areas heal and the symptoms gradually subside. This can last individually from a few days to several weeks.

Treat herpes naturally with home remedies: Simple and fast

There are several home remedies that can help relieve the symptoms and speed up the healing of herpes outbreaks. Here are some simple and natural options that help mainly due to their anti-inflammatory and cooling effects:

  • Cold compresses: Applying cold compresses to the affected area can relieve itching and burning as well as reduce inflammation. To do this, wrap a few ice cubes in a clean cloth and gently place it on the affected area.
  • Garlic: Due to the antiviral and disinfectant effect, the garlic can be applied to the blisters chopped up small
  • Tea tree oil: In addition, essential oils can help against herpes. Tea tree oil has antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. Apply a small amount of tea tree oil directly to the blisters with a cotton swab. However, be sure to dilute the oil to avoid skin irritation.
  • Honey: Honey is known for its antimicrobial properties. Apply a small amount of pure, natural honey to the affected area and leave it on for about 15-20 minutes before rinsing it off.
  • Aloe Vera: Aloe Vera gel is also known for its anti-inflammatory and cooling properties, which can help relieve herpes symptoms. Apply fresh aloe vera gel directly to the affected areas several times a day and allow it to absorb.
  • Salt water for cold sores: Rinse your mouth several times a day with a salt water solution with the ratio of teaspoon of salt in 1 cup of warm water. This can help you speed up the healing process and clean the oral cavity.

It is important to note that these home remedies can relieve the symptoms, but cannot cure the herpes virus itself. In addition, it is advisable to reduce stress, strengthen the immune system through a healthy diet and sufficient sleep, and avoid direct contact with the affected areas to prevent the virus from spreading.

What are the medicinal plants as a naturopathic approach to herpes?

Mugwort
  • Mugwort is antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory. Its ingredients act against bacteria, viruses and fungi. They kill them and soothe the inflamed area. Bitter substances constrict blood vessels and allow inflammation to subside This allows the symptoms to recede and the body to recover.

The rashes itch less and heal better because the irritated tissue can calm down.
  • Swallowwort was the main medicinal plant for the plague. Nowadays, swallowwort is known in naturopathy to reduce the amount of herpes viruses, thereby relieving the body and its immune system.
  • Lemon balmMelissa has antiviral properties and can help relieve herpes symptoms. You can prepare lemon balm tea and apply it to the affected areas or use a lemon balm oil for external application.
