In brief: Oral meds
If you are infected with herpes the best option is an oral antiviral - zovirax, valtrex, (valacyclovir) famvir.
Treatment shou, d be 7 days. If attacks are frequent that long term suppressive therapy is needed.

In brief: Don't scratch
There are antiviral medications which can be given for genital herpes, as well as topical preparations which may relieve the pain and itching.
These outbreaks seldom last much longer than 7-10 days and should resolve shortly.
