I have had genital herpes for ten years and like everyone else has been trying to find a way to get rid of it. I started this apple cider vinegar 2 tablespoons a day drinking it and applying it on breakouts. My question is how long does it take before the outbreaks stop? I read two of the individuals posts but didn't see where they typed how long after they started when their outbreaks stopped.

I have had genital herpes for 15 years with an outbreak about every six weeks. I started drinking a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar with the mother twice a day in apple juice with a little water to dilute it. I did it for its overall health benefits not thinking it would help with herpes. I have been outbreak-free for six months now. That's all I've done differently. I even forget my second glass from time to time. I so hope this continues!

In reply to Mama of Lagos, Nigeria:
You use ACV neat, undiluted. It may sting a bit.

In reply to Rae Rae of Albuquerque, NM, USA:
You can use apple cider vinegar in the mouth on an open lesion. Apply directly or with a cotton ball.

Do you dilute the apple cider vintage before applying it directly on the lesion?

Can you use apple cider vinegar in the mouth when you have an open lesion on the tongue and how would you use it?

I had one outbreak in 2001 and nothing since. I started to take Braggs apple cider vinegar with a squeezed lemon and warm water, two tablespoons three times a day. I was taking ACV for other health related reasons but have had no further outbreaks at all so it may also work as a preventative for herpes outbreaks.

Can I use Apple cider vinegar on an open genital wound caused by HSV2?

ACV creates an acidic environment which promotes wound healing. I find it quick and easy to use every time I have an outbreak.

I have had genital herpes since I was 17. I'm 48 now and about 8 years ago I started getting outbreaks on my buttocks, which migrated to my lower back and torso. Nothing, including prescription meds, relieved these lesions. When one cleared two more popped up in it's place. I searched online for a way to manage this, stumbled onto this site which recommended apple cider vinegar. It has been my miracle! It keeps the virus 95% dormant. If I feel an outbreak coming, I lather the area with ACV and it's gone in 24-36 hours. What a Godsend!
