Herpes and Vitamin C
I've been suffering from herpes for some years and recently it has become much worse - one outbreak follows another and the area under my foreskin is covered with sores - very painful.
I have a good diet and am in reasonable health; I avoid chocolate and excessive alcohol . However, I have recently heard that vitamin C can aggravate herpes. This surprises me because I thought it would help it and eat lots of fresh fruit and the occasional Vit C tablet.
So, can any confirm whether or not this is actually true? And, if it is, should I be cutting right down on the fruit intake (which seems odd when it's meant to be healthy!)?
Also, any other advice on conquering this problem?
