In brief: Genital Herpes Care
Genital herpes is a viral infection and there are no treatments otc or with a doctor to "cure" the infection.
For now, you will have it forever, but individuals have variable recurrence. The treatment is usually symptomatic - keep lesions clean. Avoid sex with another (painful and may infect them). The meds from a doc will not cure but speed healing and taken daily prevent recurrence of lesions.
