    I am LISA ONEY from United States LAKEWOOD NEW JERSEY, I was having herpes 2 on my private part. I have had them for about 2 and a half years. I am so scared that my friends are going to laugh at me, if they should find out that I have herpes on my private part and due to the virus my boyfriend broke up with me. I have been to Doctors 9 times to get it treated. They all came back negative. I have also been using Tee Tree Oil and Wartner (I freeze them at home) and they seem to be keeping the smaller herpes small but they can't seem to treat the larger ones. They don't get any Bigger, but then they didn’t shrink as much. They get smaller a little part at a time. At least they are getting smaller! As soon as I see a new herpes appearing, then I treat it. At the moment I have been using Tee Tree twice a week and then using Wartner every 2 weeks. I was wondering if there was any other information about how to get rid of it. Sometimes it get sweet when Scratching it most times! I want to get rid of it so badly! Until i stubbed into DR. UROMI Daily post on remedy for herpes diseases has posted by Sarah lifted from Dr.UROMI daily post as advise to Mathew and George about the great herbal doctor how he has helped them get rid of these infectious diseases, and how this great herbal doctor called DR.UROMI healed them; So that was when i switch for natural remedy to see if there could be any help by herbal remedy. That how i was cured. contact him on his email. Druromiherbalhome@gmail.com or whatsapp:+2349021374574

    I contracted genital herpes few weeks after i agreed sleeping with my partner. He was away for work when I was diagnosed and it took all my courage to tell him. I didn't know what he'd think or say, I thought he'd dump me. His initial response was "well you didn't get it from me" until a day later when he told me he had a cold sore. My dr was a bit of a prude about it and made this big fuss about having to report it to health authorities in order to get authorisation for my script. Luckily it was HPV type 1 which she told me is rare to just develop on your genital without it being spread all over the body but thr itch was much and pains. Someome reffered us to contact Dr Kujo which we did, he sent the herbal medicine to us after we ordered and used it accordingly he prescribed for 30 days, which eventually every itch,rash and cold sore dissapeared and my dr was amazed after he tested us herpes negative. (6 months till now I haven't even had a cold sore or itch since). But it was so scary, I did the same thing looking it up on the internet and went through that agony alone! I still haven't told anyone, not even my mum and I just hope I never have to experience that pain again! My now fiancé and I often joke about it now, mainly when I want my way I remind him that he have me herpes! I am saying to everyone now that Dr Baba Kujo is the only one that has the cure for this deadly disease, do not waste time in contacting him as we did. all thanks to him.
