Ayurveda Treatment For Genital Herpes.CAUSES OF HERPES
Herpes is caused by either of two viruses that are transmitted by direct contact. Once established, the virus remains dormant in the body, and activates during times of stress. Herpes is caused by two types of herpes simplex virus (HSV): HSV-type 1 (HSV-1) and HSV-type 2 (HSV-2). Either virus can cause blisters in the mouth or genital region, but HSV-2 typically affects the genitals, whereas HSV-1 most commonly affects the mouth.
According to Charakaacharya the herpes which is limited to skin and underlying tissues (bahya margashrita) can be treated. The herpes which affects skin, blood and lymph can be treated successfully. But the herpes which involves the internal organs (abhyantara margashrita) like brain can not be treated.

Balancing Imbalanced Doshas And Vitiated Tissues
When body is suffering from a disease the balance between three doshas will be disturbed. The first step of treatment is to balance doshas. This is achieved by administering medicines which balance the vitiated doshas of the disease .In genital herpes all three doshas get imbalanced and vitiate skin, blood and lymph. The skin,blood and lymph are purified through herbal preparations which metabolize the toxin AAMA accumulated in blood and lymph formed due to imbalanced doshas. The herbal preparations detoxify blood and lymph and expel the toxins and vitiated doshas from blood and lymph. When blood and lymph get purified the skin and underlying tissues also get rejuvenated. This reduces the inflammation, burning and tingling sensation. Clinical trials have shown that after the administration of these preparations the frequency of attacks are reduced considerably.
Boosting Body Immunity And Rejuvenation Of Body

After balancing doshas of the body , the body should be rejuvenated. By rejuvenation the body immunity gets boosted to fight any recurrent attacks of diseases. Many Ayurveda preparations are available for body rejuvenation when body is suffering from herpes. The body immunity is boosted using Rasayanas. Rasayanas are specifically mentioned as herbal preparations which give body a strength to resist diseases.Rasayanas preparations balance vitiated doshas in skin and blood. When vitiated doshas of skin are balanced the frequency of attacks reduces. The duration between the attacks are extended considerably. These preparations also boost the body immunity and also rejuvenate the body tissues by nourishing the body.
Local Treatment for Affected Skin Parts

This is called local treatment (sthanika chikitsa). In genital herpes this is achieved through local application of herbal paste, washing the affected area with herbal decoction etc.
