Mouth pimples: Herpes will first appear with grouped vesicles on an erythematous base. Clear pustules. These can also be painful. If it is herpes the treatment is symptomatic at first with ointment.

I have these little bumps beside my mouth. They gave me treatment for genital herpes. How does that work? It's called zovirax (acyclovir)
Depends: Hsv1 is very common and the majority of the adult population have antibodies to the disease which commonly causes cold sores or apthous ulcers in the mouth. This is often self limiting, but antiviral meds may help shorten the course. If it is hsv2, that is genital herpes, which can be found in the oral cavity from oral sex with an infected person, and is treated as genital herpes with medications.See 2 more doctor answers
Dr said my bf has herpes in mouth but its curable I looked online and it doesn't say nothing about cure can she be wrong? Is it contigious?
Herpes: Herpes can be treated to shorten the course of symptoms, but is not curable. This does not mean that he necessarily passed it to you. Also, ask the doctor for clarification as herpes does not generally affect inside the mouth, but rather on the lips.
Acyclovir: While there are many treatments, using Acyclovir is one of teh most commonly used for herpetic stomatitis -- and it doesn't matter if it is herpes type I or ii. Other remedies are also employed, but are not nearly as effective or frequently used. It often takes high doses (800 mg) 4-5 times per day for several days to treat.
Acyclovir/ valtrex (valacyclovir): Depending on the severity and frequency of your outbreaks, different treatment regimens are used. Some people have such infrequent outbreaks that they are on no treatment at all. For frequent, recurring outbreaks, daily Valtrex (valacyclovir) may be used to suppress the outbreaks. For some people, instead of taking daily suppressive medicine, they begin oral Acyclovir or Valtrex (valacyclovir) at the first sign of an outbreak.
No: Hydrogen peroxide is not a treatment for Herpes Simplex
No: There is no real treatment that will cure a herpes infection. Medications exist that will shorten an outbreak or reduce the severity of symptoms. While it doesn't permanently resolve, it will become dormant, sometimes for extended periods. A triggering event (acute stress, sunburn, etc) can cause the virus to become active resulting most commonly in lip sores.See 1 more doctor answer
How do you reduce the number of outbreaks of herpes if you're already on suppressive treatment with anti virals?
Recurrent Herpes: Herpes simplex virus is a virus that causes oral cold sores and gential herpes. Once you've acquired it, the virus remains dormant in nerve cell bodies in the brain. It gets reactivated during stress and when immune system goes down. Other than using suppressive therapy, there is no other way to prevent it except for keeping yourself healthy and avoiding stress.
