I've never had an outbreak, nor did I know I even had it. I don't even get cold sores, and was married to my husband for 16 years who would get them. My question is should I be taking medications to prevent an outbreak, or using homeopathic remedies to prevent one?
You don't need to take medications on a daily basis to prevent an outbreak, but I'm definitely all for natural remedies that can prevent them and help suppress the virus. Some people do take medications daily to prevent outbreaks, but from what I've heard they tend to be people who get frequent outbreaks. Others just take Acyclovir etc. when they feel an outbreak coming.
I used to take Acyclovir just at the time of an outbreak, though it wasn't the most effective thing for me. I've found natural remedies to be the best for me. Another herpes sufferer has written a fairly good overview of the treatment that I used here http://herpesanon.com/herpes-protocol.
