Herpes Scams

Herpes treatments that do not work!

The following agents have not been reported as proven effective against herpes in a clinical trial using placebos and controls. Thus, their usefulness is unknown.

Some have received anecdotal treatment in the scientific literature. In other words, they may  have been suggested as possibly effective, but the numbers or the design of the experiment were not possible to evaluate. These agents include acidophilus, acupuncture, aloe vera, antibiotics, aspirin, heat, ice, ginseng, herbal mixtures, homeopathic treatment, hypnosis, laser therapy, ozone therapy, povidone-iodine (Betadine), red algae extract, transcendental meditation, vitamin B complex, vitamin B12, vitamin C, and vitamin E.

The following compounds have been tested in scientific studies and have been shown to be ineffective. The ones marked with an asterisk (*) are also considered worse than using nothing, either because they may prolong lesions or complications, or because of real or potential harmful effects or local discomfort upon application:

alcohol applied to the sores - Bacille Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccine* - chloroform* applied to the sores - DMSO* (Rimso-50, dimethyl sulfoxide) applied to the sores - ether* applied to the sores - idoxuridine (IDU, Stoxil, Herplex-D) applied to the sores - levamisole* - nonoxynol-9* applied to the sores - ointments or creams not containing a specific antiherpes drug (including cortisone, antibiotics, etc.)* - oral polio vaccine - photodynamic inactivation (light and red dye treatments)* - smallpox vaccine* - topical adenine arabinoside (Vira-A, ara-A)

I have presented this information for personal and educational purposes ONLY. If you want to know more about herpes then I highly suggest that you talk to YOU personal physician OR order the book and read it from cover to cover for yourself. I am only sharing bits and pieces of what I've read in the hopes that I am better able to prove points that have been made time and time again on herpes message boards like Picking Up the Pieces and the Shut Up N Post! STD Message Board.
