Herpes pain is not always a symptom of the herpes virus. It can really depend on where the outbreak is and how bad the outbreak is. I have heard from friends that genital herpes is a lot more painful than oral herpes due to the sensitivity of the genital area.
For genital herpes, pain can be caused by the blisters themselves, but as they ooze and break, urination, especially in females, can aggitate the already sensative skin. This can cause burning pain in the genitals. Unfortunately for genital herpes sufferers, there are not many medications out there to help deal with pain.
Lemon balm oil and tea tree oil have be shown to be effective is helping with genital herpes pain as well as in preventing future outbreaks. Plantlike sells 100% Pure Essential Lemon Oil. Lemon oil has been shown in Germany to help reduce the severity and duration of herpes outbreaks. As mentioned earlier, Tea Tree Oil can be effective in managing herpes outbreaks.
If you suffer from oral herpes, there are many cold sore remedies available over the counter that can help manange symptoms like pain, itching and burning. You can also try the essential oils mentioned bove, but I recommend looking into Abreva Cold Sore Treatment and H-Balm which I have reviewed on this site.
I personally use Abreva but know many of my friends that swear by H-balm. H-balm also makes preventative solutions to apply between outbreaks while Abreva is more for while you are having an outbreak. But make sure to check them both out and decided for yourself.
You can also talk with your doctor about prescription medications that may be effective in treating your outbreaks.
