How do I get genital herpes treatment and what is it?
Medicine is available in both pill and cream form. These medicines helps treat the initial sores and helps to reduce the frequency, severity, and contagiousness of later outbreaks. They require a prescription from a doctor or nurse.
There are also other things you can do. Warm baths may relieve any pain you might be having from the sores. And holding cool compresses or ice packs to the sores may be soothing. Pain relievers such as aspirin, acetaminophen, or ibuprofen may also help relieve discomfort and fever.
Keep the sores dry — moisture can slow healing. Cotton clothes will help prevent from irritating the sores.
Some doctors advise a special diet. Getting a good night’s sleep on a regular basis and keeping your stress low may also help.
