In brief: No
Herpes in a viral infection that is only controlled; anti-viral medications do not "kill" the virus but only "knock it into submission.
" the virus lives in the sensory nerve cells and when active, will cause blisters and pain. Treating it will shorten the course of the infection and cause the virus to lie dormant until the next outbreak.
