Genital Herpes Homeopathy Treatment with Homeopathic Medicine

Herpes is a viral infection caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV). There are 2 types of Herpes Simplex Virus: Type 1 and Type 2. HSV type 1 causes Oral Herpes infection and HSV type 2 causes genital herpes. It must be noted that there is considerable overlap in this- HSV type 1 can also cause genital herpes in some cases and vice-versa; this usually occurs due to transmission via oro-genital contact.

Some of the patients exhibit the symptoms due to the virus while in many patients the virus (HSV 1 or 2) resides in a latent (resting) state in the nerves (that supply sensation to the skin) without showing any indications of its presence.

Most of the sufferers have recurring infections, as the virus has a tendency to show up its disease activity periodically, especially during phases of stress, lowered immunity or sometimes without any known reason. There are over four million new cases of herpes reported every year in the US. Due to carefree sex and careless contact, as I put it, this infection is bound to touch an epidemic status one day.


HSV infection is mostly spread by direct skin-to-skin contact. Transmission may occur directly, or through contact with infected razors, towels, dishes, and other shared articles. Sexual contact (including oro-genital contact) is the most common way to transmit genital HSV infection. The virus can be shed in saliva and genital secretions of patients, even if they have no symptoms.

1) Direct Skin-to-Skin Contact: The most common method of transmission is through direct contact

with an infected person's skin, especially during periods when the virus is actively shedding (such as during outbreaks of sores or blisters). This contact can occur through kissing, oral-genital contact, or sexual intercourse.

2) Asymptomatic Shedding: Even when an infected person does not have visible sores or symptoms, they can still shed the virus and potentially transmit it to others. This is known as asymptomatic


3) Contact with Saliva or Genital Secretions: HSV-1 is often associated with oral herpes and can be

transmitted through oral secretions. HSV-2 is typically associated with genital herpes and is transmitted through genital secretions. Sharing items that come into contact with saliva or genital secretions, such as utensils, towels, or sex toys, can potentially lead to transmission.

4) Vertical Transmission: HSV can be transmitted from a mother to her newborn during childbirth,

especially if the mother is shedding the virus or has active genital lesions.



Initial infection may not be noticed by the patient at times but if the lesions do appear they are usually more severe and subsequent recurrences tend to be milder. Typically herpes presents as small blisters (vesicles) filled with clear yellowish fluid. The blisters may occur on a raised, red, painful skin area and they may form, break, and ooze. Yellowish crusts may slough to reveal pink, healing skin underneath. There may be several smaller blisters that merge to form a larger blister. Oral herpes presents as skin lesions that occur around the lips, mouth and gums.

Herpes on lipsHerpes under the lips

In males, genital herpes usually presents as genital ulcers which are most frequent on the glans, foreskin, and shaft of the penis. They are generally sore or painful and last for 2 to 3 weeks. The local lymph glands get enlarged and

tender. In women, similar lesions occur on the external genitalia and the mucosa of the vulva, vagina, and cervix. Pain and difficulty passing urine are other common symptoms. Some people may also develop flu-like symptoms (fever, headache and muscular pain).


Herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection can cause a range of symptoms, and the severity and type of

symptoms can vary depending on whether it is caused by HSV-1 or HSV-2, as well as the location of

the infection. Here are some common symptoms associated with HSV:

A) Oral Herpes (HSV-1):

1) Cold Sores: Painful, fluid-filled blisters or sores (lesions) on or around the lips and sometimes

inside the mouth.

2) Itching or Tingling: A tingling or itching sensation often precedes the appearance of lesions.

3) Fever: Some people may experience a fever, especially during the initial outbreak.

B) Genital Herpes (HSV-2):

1) Genital Sores: Painful sores, blisters, or ulcers on or around the genitals, anus, buttocks, or


2) Pain or Itching: Pain, itching, or a burning sensation in the genital or anal area.

3) Flu-Like Symptoms: Some individuals may experience flu-like symptoms, such as fever, body aches, and swollen lymph nodes, during the initial outbreak.


Both Types (HSV-1 and HSV-2):

1) Asymptomatic Shedding: Many individuals infected with HSV may not experience noticeable symptoms but can still shed the virus and potentially transmit it to others.

2) Recurrent Outbreaks: After the initial outbreak, the virus can remain dormant in the body and may reactivate, leading to recurrent outbreaks of symptoms.

It's important to note that symptoms can vary widely among individuals. Some people may have very mild symptoms or no symptoms at all, while others may experience more severe outbreaks.

Additionally, symptoms can be more severe in individuals with weakened immune systems.


Common sites of herpes infection

Genital herpes shows its activities by producing acute, chronic, episodic, local and/or generalized symptoms.

The Horror:

Herpes Blisters

The horror of the herpes virus lies in its resistance to traditional medication and tendency to attack again and again. The herpes virus, detected 200 years ago has a great affinity to the human race and it is resistant to any treatment targeted at the local eruptions. That is to say, local creams or any (so-called) antiviral application may help little and cannot curb this horrible virus from within.

Prevention of Herpes Genitalis

genital-herpes This infection is contracted by sexual contact. Simply, protected sex is the best way to have protection from this infection. The use of condoms while having genital or oral sex works as a preventive measure.

The homeopathy approach and treatment:

As a rule, homeopathy does not believe in local or external medication. The constitutionally selected

the homeopathic treatment administered orally helps inner healing and the recurring, chronic infection is thus treated successfully.

Over the year we have observed encouraging and positive results with well-selected homeopathy medication. Homeopathy is strongly recommended for Herpes infection.

Some of the medicines for Herpes Genitalis

Nitric acid, Thuja Occidentalis, Causticum, Medorrhinum, and Silica are some of the commonly indicated homeopathic medicines often required in the course of treatment of Herpes Genitalis.

That being said, some homeopathic medicine for herpes includes:

1) Rhus toxicodendron: This remedy is often considered for herpes zoster (shingles) or herpes

simplex with red, swollen, and painful blisters. It may be particularly helpful if the symptoms are aggravated by rest and improved by movement.

2) Natrum muriaticum: This remedy is sometimes recommended for herpes simplex, especially if the

individual has clear fluid-filled blisters and experiences emotional stress or grief.

3) Apis mellifica: When the herpes outbreak is characterized by swelling, burning, and stinging

pain, Apis may be considered.

4) Sepia: This remedy is thought to be helpful when there is itching, burning, and a feeling of rawness in the genital area, and the person is irritable or indifferent.
