I'm 5,000 miles away from my 86-year-old mother who lives in Tampa, Florida.
Her husband, who died 2 years ago, gave her genital herpes years ago. She is currently suffering from an outbreak and her dr's normal treatment is not working. She's had a vaginal sore for over a week now. She's worried about links between cancer and herpes. I want her to get a second dr's help. Can anyone point me to some specific info about genital herpes in the elderly, please???

You may ask her tocheck herpes treatment stories at . Some of them said some kind of herbal or natural treatments are also effective and cheap.
