I have used poke with a handful of people experiencing herpes outbreaks with good results. Usually a tincture (a few drops) in a formula with anti-virals like St. John’s wort, lemon balm, hyssop, and calendula. I have seen genital herpes outbreaks get resolved and less severe. Wanted to make sure I added that information as I think it can be useful for cold sores and other type of viral infections like shingles. poke used topically can be used as well, alongside side a tincture.
Hi everyone Alex here! I wanted to add something about poke that I forgot.
