What is the treatment for herpes stomatitis?

In brief: Acyclovir

While there are many treatments, using Acyclovir is one of teh most commonly used for herpetic stomatitis -- and it doesn't matter if it is herpes type i or ii.
Other remedies are also employed, but are not nearly as effective or frequently used. It often takes high doses (800 mg) 4-5 times per day for several days to treat.
