In brief: Recurrent herpes

Attacks occur on a few people for reasons not exactly understood.
Sometimes frequent. Most common trigger is ultraviolet (sun). Also triggered by fever and by any injury in the area. Often no apparent trigger. If you get a prescription, look up the exact dosing as the drs often get it wrong. The pills are very effective. The creams are not. Sun protection cuts the risk..
