Hi I'm using this gel and have found a LOT of help with it. The gel is tromantadine The link is in spanish, but you can translate it in google traductor: http://www.facmed.unam.mx/bmnd/plm_2k8/src/prods/42069.htm What I like about this gel is: Tromantadine inhibits the penetration of virus into the cell by influencing the enzyme system by preventing cellular penetration and spread of the virus. In fact interfere with several processes, which makes it very difficult the development of resistance, contrary to what occurs with other types of treatment, based on attacking a single enzyme system. The Tromantadine inhibits syncytium formation and passage of the virus from one cell to another. The pathogenesis of reactivation is poorly understood and indicates the existence of latent infection at the ganglionnode. For this reason, despite the Tromantadine prevent the spread of the virus, the likelihood of future attacks (relapse) depends rather on the patient's immune status. So I guess it helps with the virus to not get resistent to the drug and also can make you not haveng so much recurrence. Have you tried??
