In brief: Agree
I agree with dr. Villaplana - just be sure to wear your sunscreen each and every time you are outdoors as uv will certainly cause a recurrence.
Oh, and don't share the glass with your friend because it is contagious. If you get more than 6 outbreaks a year or the outbreaks seriously hinder your personal and professional life, see your dermatologist who may put you on daily suppressive treatment.
