See your doctor: If your suspect you have Herpes you should firstly see your dr to confirm it then learn to ascertain your contact avoidance, start treatment with topically med and oral rp as well with regular follow up and never try to take care by yourself. Take care,.

See doctor: and see if it is herpes. If it is then there are treatments. But herpes is forever as there is no cure. Acute episodes can be treated and you can be put on a maintenance medication to prevent flair ups and to reduce viral shedding.

The new antiviral oral medications decrease your risk of shedding the virus to one day in 365.
