In brief: No OTC treatment

Herpetic keratitis requires prescription therapy, usually with both topical drops or ointment in the eye and oral acyclovir or valacyclovir.
And of course this dangerous condition should not be self diagnosed or treated. If you think you have it, see a doctor. If you have done that, contact her office if you have questions or uncertainties about treatment.
