Anon - No, penicillin will not treat herpes.

There are three major anti-viral drugs commonly used to treat genital herpes symptoms: acyclovir (Zovirax), famciclovir (Famvir), and valacyclovir (Valtrex). These are all taken in pill form. Severe cases may be treated with intravenous (IV) acyclovir.

You can obtain low cost treatment from Planned Parenthood and other organizations. This link leads to information on free clinics: http://www.freeclinics.us/freeclinic.php

There is no cure for herpes, and it's important that you understand the medical needs that come with this condition. The following article will help: https://www.empowher.com/genital-herpes/content/herpes-advocacy-sheet
