genital herpes pain relief
Your doctor usually provides a diagnosis of herpes, as diagnosing by oneself is difficult. The best pain relief for genital herpes is using the Russian scenar therapy device which was developed from space research. The scenar provides immediate and long lasting pain relief. My work with live blood analysis shows that herpes sufferers all have a diet high in protein fats sugar and acid forming foods and use unnecessary aggravation of symptoms. The only medication supplied by conventional doctors merely attempts to suppress the pain of a chronic genital herpes infection. However OTC over the counter painkillers can be taken if you do not have a scenar to hand.
