In brief: Stay healthy
Herpes outbreaks can occur for a number of reasons, as well as for no apparent reason.
The key is keeping your immune system as healthy as possible. This includes reducing stress, eating in a healthy manner, avoiding other illnesses, exercising regularly, getting adequate sleep, and many other "healthy" things.

In brief: Acyclovir
Oral Acyclovir can help to reduce, but not necessarily eliminate the frequency of recurrences of symptomatic disease, and may to some extent protect your sexual partner, but once you have herpes simplex infection you cannot get rid of the virus entirely.
