Acyclovir and other antivirals may shorten the duration of the illness. There are a variety of analgesic ointments available for relief of discomfort, but ask your doctor for their favorite and get prescription.

Best is acyclovir, taken at higher doses during an outbreak and lower doses for suppression.
Ssris have also helped.
