A genital herpes breakout is certainly not a fun time in any sufferer's life. Whether the symptoms are light or severe, the discomfort, pain and itching that comes along with genital herpes lesions can really disrupt your life. The following are just a few ways you can help relieve pain and inflammation, reduce itching and speed up the healing process, so you can get the outbreak over with and get on with your life.

Epsom Salt Baths - This one is a real life saver, and has become one of my main methods of dealing with the pain and discomfort of a herpes outbreak. Add a cup or two of Epsom salts to a hot bath (as hot as you can stand, but be careful and don't burn yourself!) and soak for 20 minutes or so. Your sores may sting a little going in, but this will soon give way to a beautiful soothing feeling as the salts get to work on your lesions. This method not only cleans the sores and helps them heal faster, but also reduces pain, itching, swelling and inflammation. I've also heard adding a spoon or two of baking soda to the Epsom salts can make it even more effective.

Tea Tree Oil - Tea tree oil is an amazing substance (One of the most powerful all natural antiseptics known to man) that has a huge variety of uses, and it is very effective on genital herpes lesions. Dab it on your sores with a cotton bud or q-tip, or if your lesions are too painful to touch, use an eyedropper to drip it onto the sores. This is also a great form of herpes itching relief.

L-Lysine Supplements - These can be had from just about any health food store for very cheap, usually five or six dollars a bottle. Take one daily during an outbreak to speed up healing time of genital herpes lesions and reduce the itching and pain. You can take these daily even when not having an outbreak, and they will help prevent outbreaks from occurring. L-Lysine is amazing and cheap, and should be part of any herpes sufferers daily vitamin intake.
