Let me explain: There's no cure for genital herpes. Treatment with prescription antiviral medications may: help sores heal sooner during an initial outbreak lessen the severity and duration of symptoms in recurrent outbreaks reduce the frequency of recurrence minimize the chance of transmitting the herpes virus to another.
