I HAD HERPES 5 YEARS AGO GENITAL HERPES AND NEVER HAD IT AGAIN. I STARTED USING AN ANTI BACTERIAL SOAP CALLED MANUKA OIL SOAP FOR BODY ODOUR. SINCE USING THIS WHEN I SLEEP WITH MY BOY FRIEND I SEEM TO GET OUT BREAKS OF HERPES. COULD I BE GETTING RID OF ALL THE BACTERIA I NEED INSIDE TO STOP THE INFECTION OR IS IT JUST A COINSIDENSE. PLEASE HELP AS THE SOAP HAS GOT RID OF THE ODOUR PROBLEM.

Herpes is not precipitated by getting rid of the natural bacteria. It is often precipitated by stress.
