In brief: Herpes

There is no cure for herpes.
You will need to see your doctor for definitive diagnosis and possibly be started on anti-viral medication such as Valtrex (valacyclovir) to expedite the resolution of an outbreak or to prevent outbreak in the future. You mush avoid direct contact with another when you have an active eruption.
