Can you drink the ACV if you have no outbreaks at all and use it as a preventative? I had one outbreak in 2001 and nothing since. I recently started to take Braggs ACV with a squeezed lemon and warm water, two tablespoons three times a day. I was taking ACV for other health related reasons and stumbled across this site so I wanted to ask.

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!

I found out I had herpes type 2 a few weeks ago and god did I think the world was over! The pain I've been in has been horrible. They prescribed me percocet and meds but I could only afford the pain killers, this made me feel like this would never end. I found this site last night and and have been using apple cider vinegar since and my lesion is shrinking by the hour. It's amazing! I've been using corn starch it was working but so very slow! Baking soda had me in tears don't ever use it on an open lesion ulcer! ACV and corn starch to dry it work amazing. I feel like I can go on without worries now. This website is really amazing and I thank God for your comments. I hope mine helps the next person that feels helpless! It's so cheap and I'm feeling better now. Smile it's not the end of the world!

Hey it works! I usually have a break out for more then 3 days, this helped stop the outbreak right away. About half hour later it was all better. No itching and no sores developed! Its strange how easy and effective this is.

I've had genital herpes for almost 40 years. My outbreaks occur in the lower back upper buttox area and have been pretty much perpetual. As soon as one heals up, I'll get another. And this is despite watching my diet i.e. not eating nuts, chocolate, etc. I started to put ACV on the area to handle a rash which it did and noticed the herpes outbreakes stopped. I applied Braggs brand ACV several times a day just with my hand and rubbing it right on the skin. A couple of times I felt an outbreak starting and simply kept applying the ACV as above and they were gone the next day. It s been about two months and no outbreakes! THIS IS A MIRACLE TO ME!!! So, to be proactive and prevent outbreakes, simply apply ACV to the area where you normally get the outbreaks several times a day and see what happens. I apply the ACV 6-8 times a day.

ACV works wonders. I use four 1000mg capsules daily. Some say that the it is better taken orally but boy that stuff tastes bad. It keeps me outbreak free. If I DO get any prodrome symptoms I add 2000mg lysine and use a 40 zinc oxide cream topically to stop any breakouts or blistering. I've been doing this for about 6 months now and this is the longest I've gone without a breakout in YEARS. Also, I drink coconut water daily and make sure I rest, take my vitamins and watch my triggers. Alcohol no more than 3 drinks a day, NO chocolate, NO beer. I was taking olive leaf extract but the ACV seems to do a much better job at half the price.

If you have herpes in surrounding your genitals, you can use the ACV as replacement for your chemical douching. First time I did that, it was not really painful or stinging at all. Rather I felt the relief while doing the douche. And it really worked! I am on my 5th day now and aside from the yeast infection, the herpes is absolutely healed! I am planning to take this till my 7th day. There is no doubt that ACV works for this kind of health problems.
