Oral herpes simplex virus: Does carmex work?

Not really

Cold_sore
You really need an antiviral cream or oral medication to be most effective. Over the counter Abreva is better than carmex.

What is the treatment for oral Herpes Simplex?

Acyclovir

Hsv
While there are many treatments, using Acyclovir is one of the most commonly used for herpetic stomatitis -- and it does not 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.

but you can get herpes simplex 1 in the genital area. Most adults are already positive for HSV1. If you already have it, you will get nothing. A blood test can tell you if you need to worry.
