Homeopathy to treat herpes, shingles and chapped skin!

Herpes, shingles, chapping… Nothing very pleasant, we grant you that! However, these illnesses affect many people all over the world. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), 3.7 billion people carry HSV-1, the herpes virus which mainly affects the mouth!

The good news is that homeopathy is effective in naturally fighting these infections. We explain everything to you in this new post!

Herpes, shingles, chapping: what are we talking about?

Before introducing you to our effective homeopathic remedies for herpes, shingles and chapped skin, let's quickly remind you what these ailments are.


Herpes is a viral disease, caused by the herpex simplex virus, type 1 or 2. Type 1 concerns herpes which develops on the face, while type 2 is genital herpes. In this article we will only deal with the type 1 virus.

This type 1 virus enters our body through a mucous membrane or a lesion. It infects the area, then lodges in a lymph node, without being noticed. This can last for several weeks, months, and sometimes even years!

Once infected, we never get rid of the virus. Certain factors, such as exposure to the sun, fever, fatigue or stress, can “wake up” the virus and cause lesions to appear on the skin. The lesions caused by this herpes are mainly found around the mouth, but also around the nose, inside the mouth, on the cheeks or on the forehead.

They first appear as a feeling of heat and itching. A few hours or days later, transparent vesicles form. They become opaque, empty of the liquid they contain, then a crust appears. A herpes outbreak lasts 10 to 15 days. When it occurs on the lip, it is called a “cold sore” or “cold sore”.

The Shingles

Shingles, for its part, is a derivative of the famous chickenpox. As a result of this skin problem, which affects almost everyone, some VZV viruses may remain in our body. These do not cause any symptoms for years.

However, with age or if the immune system is weakened, the virus can be reactivated and thus cause the appearance of shingles. It then manifests itself as painful skin rashes, often on the face or chest.

The Chapped

Finally, chapping: these are not ailments but rather an unpleasant irritation which often occurs in cold and dry weather. These are in fact small cracks that are quite deep, painful and difficult to heal. They usually appear on the lips or hands.

Homeopathy, your ally to relieve these ailments

Herpes and shingles are very contagious skin problems, so it's best to get rid of them as quickly as possible! Homeopathy helps fight skin problems effectively and naturally.
