Does light therapy help treat herpes simplex virus?

A Answers (1)

  • Light therapy may be considered as an alternative treatment for the herpes virus when drug therapy is not possible. Short-term phototherapy has been shown to be effective in reducing cold sore healing time. Additional research is warranted.
