Using a good stablised aloe on the skin would indeed help with the symptoms of herpes, aloe is absorbed by the skin together with all it's good stuff, but it's not going to remove the virus from your body. If you were to drink aloe vera together with all of it's super food qualities, then this may improve the immune system and perhaps fight off the virus.
What you really need is something that would safely enter your blood, grab hold of some virus parts, because viruses have to make parts of themselves using our cells, and then carry them off and out of your body when you pee or poop. That something is called Liquid Zeolite, and it works very well. Do a detox and rid yourself of this nasty virus. Regards Pedro
