Thank you so much for all of your common sense knowledge and practical wisdom. I have received my bottle of Lauricidin, and I will continue to do what you have said--coconut oil topically (which truly DOES work for me), and the pure monolaurin. I am hoping to get better results than I have with other treatments in the past, and this time I feel it will really work! It's sad, but even in today's society, there is STILL so much stigma and judgment attached to this virus, that it continually affects my state of mind when I'm with a prospective mate. If I can one day eradicate the virus, I'll be one of the happiest persons alive. Thanks again.
