Is there anyway I can treat my genital herpes without going to the doctor? He might tell my mom.

In brief: No

You can ride it out and not treat it, and hopefully it will go away and not reappear frequently.
If, however, you want it treated, your doctor will have to write a prescription. It is unclear how old you are, but discussing this with your doctor and requesting they respect your confidentiality may work successfully. On the other hand, who is going to pay for the prescription?
