Herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections are very common with as many as 90% of American adults being exposed to the virus. Symptoms can range from very mild or no symptoms at all, to outbreaks that can be painful and compromise the skin for an extended period of time. Outbreaks are triggered by exposure to the sun, fever, stress, a weakened immune system, or illness.
A day or so before an outbreak, you may feel tingling, itching, burning, pain, or flu-like symptoms. When this occurs, apply NeoGenesis Recovery serum, abundant in stem cell released molecules to deliver nutrients to the affected area, up to 4 times daily. Incorporate the use of our MB-1 to help mitigate the outbreak by rebalancing the microbiome of the skin. Recovery serum will infuse the skin with the nutrients needed to protect the skin during an outbreak. Recovery may also reduce the discomfort associated with the lesions.
Once the lesion is beginning to dissipate, continue the use of Recovery and MB-1, 2 to 4 times daily until the area is healed. If possible, gently cleanse the area with the NeoGenesis Cleanser then apply the Recovery serum. For any dryness or scabbing, use our Barrier Renewal Cream followed by MB-1 to keep the area hydrated.
Use a chemical-free sunscreen over the area as the sun is a major factor in contributing to the Herpes Simplex Virus.
