What is the best herbal/vitamin way to address stress, which causes welts/rash on chest, back and legs, and causes herpes to flare?

My doctor prescribes medication costing $160.00.

Stress causing skin problems needs a more holistic approach than just taking herbs and vitamins. There are usually other factors involved, including the diet and a weakness in the ability of the kidneys to excrete toxins. I recommend that you consult with a natural practitioner, such as a medical or clinical herbalist or a naturopath, to determine the factors in your case.
