This information is not intended to replace needed attention from your gynecologist. Proper diagnosis of genital herpes can help you determine your approach to addressing herpes outbreaks so find out if that's even what it is first.
Essential oils: Always dilute pure oils to avoid stinging and burning on application. Oil that help soothe and heal include calendula, tea tree oil, lemongrass oil, lavendar and geranium.
To tell or not to tell: Finding a support group for those who have herpes may be a good step as well. You will be able to talk to others about what has worked for them, in terms of reducing their herpes outbreaks and how they have handled telling a significant other or a potential partner that they have herpes.
Not telling is really no option. Even if it were not ethically the right thing to do, the stress of keeping the secret and the fear of passing herpes on to someone you care about would soon poison the relationship, not to mention that stress is one of the biggest oubreak triggers for some people. Other common triggers include L-Arginine and too much sun. Best to get it out in the open. Learning how others have successfully disclosed their genital herpes can help.
