polyDNA answers new questions on herpes, HSV, herpes virus, cold sores, etc. collected from the public in its May, 2013 survey.

Sun exposure can reactivate the herpes virus. Research has shown that sun exposure in people infected with oral herpes (HSV-1), may cause a flare up, or outbreak of fever blisters and cold sores.

In polyDNA’s recent survey, respondents showed an understanding of this connection. One survey respondent commented, “It’s terrible. I was skiing back in December and even though I put sunscreen on my lips, a fever blister still formed. Same thing happened when I went surfing just recently. I was out all day, got a little sunburned on my face, and then boom…I felt a tingling sensation on my mouth and a day later I had a breakout.” – Joey L, CA

According to, “Flare-ups can also occur when someone is under emotional stress, ill with fever or menstruating.” (1) Sometimes an injury can cause an outbreak, and sometimes flare-ups happen without explanation.

An outbreak, after exposure to the sun, is common however. “Exposure to UV radiation is recognized to suppress cell-mediated immunity and therefore could adversely affect the course of a viral infection…These are herpes simplex, in which sunlight exposure can cause reactivation….” (Photochemistry and Photobiology, 2006) (2)

It is normal for herpes outbreaks to occur after exposure to sunlight. Sunburn can cause cell damage in the lips. For example, a person may become sunburned during outdoor activity in the summer and then go on to develop oral herpes symptoms.

Some people believe that using a sunscreen can help prevent an oral herpes outbreak. However, “In a study of 51 patients, which was performed under natural conditions, use of a sunscreen lotion with a high protective factor did not result in a lower incidence of herpes labialis.” (Canadian Family Physician, December 2008) (3)

Mike Evans, from the Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) said, “People develop herpes outbreaks during the summer. And, sunscreen doesn’t help. In contrast, Gene-Eden-VIR, a herpes remedy against the latent herpes virus, can help prevent the nasty looking fever blisters and cold sores.”

“The first symptom of an outbreak is an unpleasant tingling feeling in the skin. After a short while, a number of fluid-filled blisters appear. The sores become covered by scabs that, typically, fall off after 8 to 10 days. The virus can spread until the sores are completely covered by scabs. Around 20 per cent of the people with HSV antibodies have recurrent attacks of cold sores throughout their lives.” ( (4)

In the other 80%, herpes establishes what scientists call a latent infection. When a virus is latent, it acts as if it is asleep or dormant. The moment the immune system is weakened, however, the herpes virus can “wake up” and become active again.

The best defense against a latent herpes infection is a healthy immune system.
polyDNA would like to point out a herpes remedy that boosts the immune system and helps target the dormant (latent) HSV virus.

The name of that herpes remedy is Gene-Eden-VIR. It is a natural oral supplement designed to fight against latent herpes viruses. By killing the latent herpes virus, one may help prevent fever blisters and cold sores from developing.

In fact, a recent post marketing clinical study showed that Gene-Eden-VIR is safe and effective. Up to 70% of those studied reported a decrease in herpes symptoms. (5)

Each ingredient of Gene-Eden-VIR was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals around the world to identify the safest, most effective natural ingredients that target the latent form of the Epstein Barr Virus.

polyDNA is a biotechnology company that develops dietary supplements using the unique scientific method developed by Dr. Hanan Polansky, which is based on Computer Intuition.

In addition to his unique scientific method, Dr. Polansky published the highly acclaimed scientific discovery, called Microcompetition with Foreign DNA. The discovery explains how foreign DNA fragments, and specifically, DNA of latent viruses, cause most major diseases.
polyDNA developed Gene-Eden-VIR , an antiviral natural remedy that helps the immune system kill latent viruses.
