What are the symptoms of herpes and how long it last? Can it be cured?

"Herpes is Forever" There was an ironic quip that while love may fade..... It has no cure but some symptom relief is possible. It simply goes into ; out of remissions throughout life. Stress - physical or emotional can bring it out of retirement - general good health can keep it at rest. When you see your doctor, ask for guidance on managing it but definitely use condoms always but especially when sores are present.
