Herpotherm is an inexpensive way to intervene immediately if the annoying enemy makes itself felt again. The method of treating herpes with targeted heat was already known to me from my doctor and had also been tested, with positive results. It works well for me, the nuisance usually goes immediately and also comes much less often.

The Herpotherm was recommended to me by my dentist. I have suffered from cold sores since I was a child (born in 67). So I've already tried a lot. I save the list here. So, when the tingling started, I immediately put the pen on twice. 51 degrees Celsius on a sensitive lip ... Ouch. But well, better than bubbles! However, two vesicles were able to develop. I still used the pen anyway. The existing blisters dried up very quickly and the course was of course considerably shortened without further pricking on the lip. It started tingling elsewhere. I used the pen 2x in a row .... Ouch. This time I was lucky. No bubble has formed. I would recommend this pen to others!

For years I have suffered extremely from cold sores. It started again two days ago. I immediately used Herpotherm, 5-7 times a day and three times in a row. Now it's gone, just gone. There were no more bubbles, it just encapsulated. Outstanding. Am so happy.

Already have the 3rd copy in use, always exchanged. A not fully developed construction needs to be technically revised urgently. The device rarely delivers its full performance, unfortunately changing the battery doesn't help - not a German quality product, not recommended!

Unfortunately, the Herpse hit even harder afterwards. Then I fought him in parallel with acyclovir. However, I wanted to spare me the drug. The treatment is pleasant and it helps very well with mosquito bites. I have to add that the herpes has been raging in me for 12 years and sits in a delicate place. What a shame, I thought that would be the big breakthrough in the fight against herpes.

Not a miracle cure, but much better than anything else

I got the Herpotherm recommended by my dermatologist. Had never heard of it before. The price scared me off at first, but when you calculate what money you've already spent on tablets, creams and herpes patches, it's a no brainer. Since I've been using the Herpotherm, I've only had herpes twice (instead of the usual 5 times) and that much smaller. I notice immediately when a herpes is on the way ... then my lip hurts. So I hold the Herpotherm on this spot at least 5 times a day. The pen gets really hot on the contact surface and that hurts, but it helps and then you have to go through it. In addition to the Herpotherm, I also take high doses of lysine when there is a risk of herpes; that is available in capsule form. I then swallow about 12 pieces a day. Before that, herpes took 10 days for me to heal completely and I had many weeping, itchy blisters. I don't have the blisters at all, just a much smaller wound that is gone after 4 days. :)

I use the Herpotherm in a very uncomfortable place. It gets really hot, but it can sometimes be a real relief if it is itchy. The Herpotherm works more preventively. If you have a slight tingling sensation or itching, apply it briefly and you keep the herpes in check. But that doesn't always work. However, it supports the healing process. It is small and light and fits in every handbag. They look like a bigger lipstick. Also helps against mosquito bites. The itching stops immediately.

Also helps against itchy mosquito bites

In the meantime, each of our families has their own, because if you always have it with you, you can act immediately, both with cold sores and mosquito bites. Use the first tingling sensation and the lip vesicles do not even appear. If you get a mosquito bite, do not scratch first, but instead use the Herpotherm and the itching generally subsides immediately.

I've been using this pen for several years now and would never give it back. I actually had herpes all the time. If it started on the left side of the mouth, it then slowly moved over to the right side of the mouth. I had tried everything there was. From various creams (which did absolutely nothing) to herpes plasters. Thanks to Herpotherm, not only is the outbreak of herpes often prevented or the healing time shortened, but the herpes itself has become significantly less for me. If it starts to tingle somewhere, I immediately hold up my pen and everything is fine. Even my husband takes this pen, although he is very skeptical at first.

Better than herpes - definitely!

Not only me but also my daughter suffer from herpes infections. The Herpotherm stick is the drug of choice for both of us. If the lip starts to tingle, heat is immediately applied AND a cream containing aciclovir is also used, lip pads also help to heal quickly. If you "catch" the herpes in the initial phase, you can be pretty sure that, if treated adequately and extensively, it disappears before it could break out properly or just appear in a very shortened form. I didn't want to do without this stick anymore, my daughter it works the same way!

Great hope, no effect

I also had high hopes for this product because I have a mechanical heart valve and want to fight any inflammation, viruses and bacteria. The herpes outbreak was delayed by the immediate use by 4 days, but then hit with full effect. I treated the areas repeatedly several times a day, it could not have been the frequency. Couldn't recommend this product to the readers of the heart valve forum either.

Unfortunately, I cannot recommend the product to others. Since I've suffered from herpes for a long time (around 10 years) and so far haven't found anything that really helped me, I let the good reviews tempt me to order herpotherm ... the price is of course quite high, if it helps, of course it's not a shame, but it didn't work for me, I've already had three episodes and had the feeling that it was even more pronounced. It's a shame

Shortens inflammation duration

The use of Herpotherm did not completely suppress the infection in me, but the healing process was much shorter. The blisters have not become infected as much and have not gotten as big as usual. The application itself takes some getting used to. The pen has a small "heating surface" at the end that gets hot and is held on the cold sore. It was painful at first, but over time you get used to it. Most of all, the treatment will improve the itchiness. For someone who regularly suffers from herpes, the Herpotherm is certainly helpful.

My initial enthusiasm for the effects of Herpotherm has subsided. During the last herpes attack, Herpotherm did nothing, quite the opposite. The cold sore had gotten very bad. Maybe it was other viruses or, as with all those ointments and creams for herpes, they work once or twice. Then you have to outsmart the viruses again. The only thing that always helps and causes a stop is to apply toothpaste with a Q-tip and leave it alone until the scab falls off.
