    Thank you for your question. I haven't seen any strong evidence that says bleach is an effective treament for herpes. Herpes has no known cure. If you'd like to read more about Valtrex, a medication that can help to prevent outbreaks and the spread of herpes, click here.

    Best of luck,

    Casey

      i thought i was the only 1 who did this. bleach helps my outbreaks be less painful if i dab with it everytime i feel a itch. burns like hell but it does feel better later. also lysol disinfected spray helps. it lasts longer than the bleach and helps it leave quicker.
