Herpes is a very common disease that is spreading rapidly among the human population. It is a contagious disease and there are chances to get the virus from a contact with a person already suffering from it.
Many people decide to take expensive medications and ointments that can reduce, but not cure the disease. However there are several cheap and effective everyday household items that will help you significantly in the treatment of this disease. Toothpaste is one those things. All you have to do is apply it on the sore spot and due to its cooling effect you will not feel the itching.
Apply a reasonable amount of paste, apply a thin layer and leave it to stay like that for about 2-3 hours. During this time the paste will harden, and then you need to remove it gently using lukewarm water.
Toothpaste can be applied at any time when you feel irritation and itching in the affected area.
