Are there any balms or salves that should be avoided to prevent outbreaks from occurring? Just found out a couple days ago that I have HSV 1 genital. So thought I would ask the question. Also what is the best to use? Thanks in advance.

A lot of people swear by lemon balm. I've not gotten the chance to use it but it's on my list! Right now I do a tea tree/coconut oil mix if I need some relief.

lemon balm. I had the beginning of a cold sore the other day orally and I put it on a few times that day and it dried right up without even fully forming
