It can produce varying degrees of itchiness and irritation around the affected areas, as well as a certain amount of pain. Unfortunately, there's no cure for herpes.

1. Olive Oil

Olive oil is famous around the world for the treatments of many skin ailments. Its potent antioxidant properties coupled with its moisturizing effect make it a suitable remedy for treating the skin. Organic, high-quality olive oil is the best option for therapeutic uses. It's wise to avoid cheap olive oils when it comes to protecting the skin. It's especially useful for people who suffer from dry skin. To treat herpes with olive oil, add a few tablespoons of olive oil into a small bowl. You can add a tablespoon or two of honey for a stronger effect. Heat the mixture slightly and apply it directly to the affected area. Wash and repeat as necessary. Be careful not to get any olive oil into sensitive areas.
