Herpes on the lips (herpes labialis) and nose (Herpes facialis) causes a virus called herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV 1). The number of infected persons and carriers of the virus is constantly increasing and 80-90% of the adult population carries the herpes agent, and they are eather not aware of it or herpes has never appeared on their lips; herpes virus often emerges only at 20-40% of carriers of the virus.
The first infection occurs in infancy, and when a virus enters through broken skin or mucous membranes it travels through sensory nerves to neural ganglia where it settles permanently in the body and it can be activated occasionally. Herpes virus is contagious and is transmitted by air, contact, may be transferred from one person to another

HOW TO RECOGNIZE HERPES?
Most frequently it appears on the skin around the mouth, lips, nose, but can also occur in other places on the face. At the place of herpes outbreak burning, redness, itching, tightness, pain and the appearance of small nodules that are filled with fluid occurs (that fluid contains viruses, and it is than the greatest opportunity for the transmission of infection).

For the treatment of herpes in the mouth antiviral therapy is used. Propolis has been scientifically proven with antiviral activity that is the highest antiviral activity of propolis on herpes simplex virus type 1 have flavonoids - Galangin, Pinocembrion, Chrysin and esters of Caffeic acid and derivatives of benzoic acid.
People who have used propolis say that lesions are overgrown much sooner and numerous studies prove that Propolis really works.
Apipol ointment contains propolis and use of that ointment the healing and overgrowth of open lesions, and infected and damaged skin can be much faster.
HOW TO STOP HERPES OUTBREAK?
