Best Herpes Treatments – But No Herpes Cure
However, there are some highly effective and reputable herpes treatments out there. Since many people with genital herpes have few or no noticeable symptoms, while other people have several outbreaks a year, the treatment options vary depending on your particular situation.

Bogus Herpes Treatment & Cures – Herpes Scams
Unfortunately, many companies will try to take advantage of people who are desperate to find anything that might reduce or eliminate herpes symptoms. Since most people’s symptoms will go away within a few days without any treatment, patients may erroneously assume that it’s because of one of these bogus herpes products. Also, their websites put these products on lists of “good” herpes treatments which include the *real* ones like Acyclovir and Valtrex, alongside their bogus treatments. By putting their “bad” information alongside of ”good” information, they are being very deceptive. Don’t be fooled by these anyone promoting a bogus herpes scam.

Dynamiclear is an herbal topical solution that falsely claims to be “clinically proven” in “Phase III clinical trials” to reduce the duration of herpes and cold sore outbreaks. The folks behind Dynamiclear, Global Herbal Supplies – based in Australia, have some clever marketing tactics. They commissioned a clinical research study in India that they have intentionally mislabeled as a “Phase III clinical trial” – but this study never met the recognized standards of a Phase III clinical trial, with only 149 subjects and no double-blind testing, and other serious oversights. The study also did not compare results to a placebo. See this link for more info.
The ingredients of Dynamiclear may be natural and not harmful, but none of the ingredients in their product have ever been “clinically proven”, as claimed, to actually do anything to reduce the occurrence or speed the healing of herpes or cold sores. Most people’s sores will go away without ANY treatment within a few days to a few weeks. Therefore, many people may incorrectly attribute their healing to Dynamiclear. People are spending a lot of money on Dynamiclear and really want to believe that it works. At best, it does no harm.
Dynamiclear also recommends that you take their expensive “Combined Lysine Formula” as part of their recommended treatment regimen. Lysine can be purchased for much cheaper from many other sources. Lysine is NOT an ingredient in Dynamiclear. But they recommend taking Lysine in addition to using Dynamiclear. Lysine is the only substance in their recommended protocol that has been shown in studies to reduce herpes symptoms in some patients. Combining other treatments like Lysine with Dynamiclear further “muddies” any results you may have – you won’t know which substance was responsible for your results, or if doing nothing at all would have the same result. Most of us are not scientists, so it’s easy to be misled by such mumbo-jumbo as you will find on Dynamiclear’s website.
Herpes Expert Terri Warren, RN, owner of the Westover Heights Clinic and Contributer to WebMD is one of the many herpes experts who knows that Dynamiclear has not completed a legitimate “Phase 3″ clinical trial. On WebMD she writes:
“Everyone is entitled to use treatments that work for them. However, before anyone goes out to buy [Dynamiclear or Herpanacine] based on a single person’s experience, it should be made clear that neither has demonstrated effectiveness in a well done clinical trial. If they would submit to clinical trial evaluation, it would reinforce positive comments from professionals. Both Valtrex (which is now generic as valacyclovir) and acyclovir have demonstrated effectiveness against oral and genital herpes. Acyclovir can be taken daily to reduce the frequency of recurrences and transmission for about $16 per month.Again, everyone should use what works for them, but when it comes to reducing transmission to someone else, I certainly would recommend ONLY those things that have demonstrated effectiveness.
