In brief: Cure is unlikely

Herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections are permanent, with lifelong potential for recurrent oubreaks and/or transmission to close personal contacts.
However, outbreaks tend to become very infrequent over time, and transmission becomes uncommon. Unfortunately, science has not found anything to cure herpes. Maybe someday, but probalby not in the near future.
