Hi Y'all; My own personal virus is herpes zoster, shingles. I've had outbreaks for decades, but I didn't know what it was until about 5yrs. ago, when I had concurrent neuropathy. That type of pain took me to my knees. Although I didn't try meds. for it, I did try numerous supplements, herbs, and amino acids. B12 has been the very best against shingles for me. It also has antiviral properties that prevent outbreaks in my case. I've read that zinc also has antiviral properties and has been tested against herpes 1 and 2.
