Oral Herpes (HSV-1, Herpes Simplex Virus-1) Home Remedies
For mild infections, self-care may be adequate for treatment. Other treatments termed "home remedies" are not considered cures but can ease or hasten recovery. These remedies include aloe vera gel, cornstarch paste, and tea or mint leaves. There is no cure for the infection. People with severe infection symptoms, especially children, should be evaluated by a medical caregiver.
