Minimizing stress, unhealthy habits (drinking, smoking, etc.) and eating a balanced diet are all key to supporting your body's natural immune responses. But we all know that is easier said than done. So supplementing your diet and helping the body's natural detoxification processes is the step-up you can have during cold and flu season and periods of high stress. If you suffer from the fear of a Herpes breakout, this is especially important. We hear from many of our customers how the anxiety related to their condition makes them even more stressed out and hence more prone to having an eruption.

It is estimated that 80% of the population carries the Herpes virus. To be properly diagnosed, it is important to see a Doctor to get a correct diagnosis during the active phase of the virus (ie. when cold sores are present). Remember that even when sores are not present, it is very easy to transmit the virus to another individual. It is recommended to always advise sexual partners of your status prior to having sex with them. And to always practice safe sex to prevent transmission.
Skin to skin contact is the easiest way of transmission for the Herpes virus, especially during a breakout. But surprisingly, cold sores that occur on the lips, the highest transmission rate is noted in moms to their kids. So parents with Herpes (generally Herpes Simplex Virus I) should be extra careful with their children during a breakout. Herpes is a virus, it will remain in your body forever. This does not mean it will always express itself in the form of sores. Sores usually occur when the body is stressed or ill, ie. the immune system is not strong enough to suppress the virus. It is always recommended to strive to live a healthy, balanced life if you suffer from Herpes. It is also very common to get fever blisters and cold sores after excessive sun exposure, so people that are already prone to cold sores should use ample sunscreen, zinc based is the most recommended.
