23 Month Old has Herpes

Dear Dr. Tom:

My 23 month old daughter currently has
an outbreak of what a doctor visibly called a herpes outbreak. No culture
was taken and no advice other than it takes ten days to clear up. We
are not rich and I worry that my net worth and inability to provide
my daughter with expert medical care/coverage, may result in unnecessary
problems. Please offer any advice that may help as my daughter is in
pain and hardly eating, and I am worried about her health now and in
the future. Thank you in advance for your kind consideration in this

Dr. Tom’s Response:

Dear Mother of 23 Month Old Daughter:

Assuredly, that child should have received
additional medical attention. The physician might have followed up
additionally when she was diagnosed with the herpes.

The local pharmacist might offer one of
several across-the-counter herpes remedies. Refer to the Diet and
section of this site which provides foods high in lysine and
low in arginine. Note that peanuts or peanut butter is not a good choice.
Also good hygiene is imperative to prevent spreading the virus.

I hope all will be fine for you and the
little girl.
