Points -  Ask the Doctor

Q: What is a good natural treatment that I can take for oral herpes?

A: There are some natural substances that you can take to help the symptoms of oral herpes. More commonly known in the United States as lemon balm, Melissa officinalis is widely sold in Europe as a topical cream for the treatment of cold sores. It should be applied at the first sign of blistering. It greatly lessens the duration of the cold sore, bringing relief as quickly as the second day.

Another famous treatment for herpes is the amino acid L-lysine. Foods high in L-lysine include vegetables, beans, fish, turkey, and chicken. You can also take L-lysine as a supplement.

Discuss options with your physician before beginning a new health regime.
