Outbreak of what?
If you are having recurrent episodes of genital herpes
, oral valacyclovir
can be helpful in ameliorating or shortening duration of the episode.
Some doctors will provide prophylactic Acyclovir to lengthen the times periods between outbreaks. There is seldom, if ever, a need for antibiotics in association with herpetic outbreaks, and in fact they are contraindicated.
