Genital herpes treatment and using L Arginine in clitoris

Resolved Question:

Hello doctor,I am a female and have got genital herpes. It was tested medically and came out as positive. I haven’t got herpes outbreaks also. Now, I would like to get some information about medicines containing L Arginine. I found a product containing L Arginine, which claims to improve sensation of clitoris. Now, I don’t have much sensation in that area and sex seems not to be so pleasurable. Can using L Arginine help with this and help me to get this problem solved? Is there a chance that herpes outbreak will occur as a result of using L Arginine?

Thanks for your question and concern. As you may know, L Arginine is an amino acid. It is present in almost all forms of proteins and are commonly seen used for cardio vascular related treatments, developing lean muscles and to increase sexual health. It is a primary nitric oxide precursor. It is responsible for the relaxation of blood vessels and thereby increases blood circulation too. But there are no evidences found till now that there is a link between genital herpes outbreak and increasing sensation of clitoris using L Arginine. So, in my opinion, it can be used so that you can increase sensation of your clitoris. But it is advised to get prescribed for some alternative medicine also, from your gynec. Hope my answer helps. Good luck.
