Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post!

The medication you are taking is used to treat the herpes virus, be it genital herpes, cold sores, shingles etc. But you need to consult a doctor about the dosage you are taking and even if this is the right kind of medication for you. Are you diagnosing yourself with herpes? If so, that's not a good idea - you need a consultation.

There is no cure for genital herpes. Some people get an outbreak only once a year or less - some get them more often. Time will tell where you stand. A healthy immune system helps to keep outbreaks to a minimum. A healthy diet, exercise, good sleep and less stress are key ingredients in keeping your immune system strong. An outbreak can last a week or several weeks.

Please put a call into your doctor.
