Materials and methods: Atotal of 120 patients (100 female, 20 male) with RHL divided into four groups: Group I: Fifty patients used viscous solution of curcumine 30% topically. Group II: Thirty patients used viramed "acyclovir"cream topically. Group III: Twenty five patients used glycerol topically "control positive group".Group IV: Fifteen patients without treatment "control negative group". Results: Female were moreaffected than male with RHL (83.3% female, 16.3% male) with high percentage of association between highly stressed events and RHL. The results also showed significant differences between size of lesion,duration of healing and pain in patients using viscous curcumine solution topically and patients received viramed cream and patient received no treatment. The patients group which received glycerol"control positive" showed a significant differences in duration of healing compared with group I and group II. While, patients group which received viramed topically showed no significant differencescompared with group III and IV in related to duration of pain and show significant difference with group I, III and IV in relation to duration of healing.
