Treatment

Although there is no cure for genital herpes, your healthcare provider might prescribe an antiviral medicine to treat your symptoms and to help prevent future outbreaks. This can decrease the risk of passing herpes to sexual partners. Medicines to treat genital herpes are

  • Acyclovir (Zovirax)
  • Famciclovir (Famvir)
  • Valacyclovir (Valtrex)

For updated information on treatment for genital herpes, read the CDC STD Treatment Guidelines.
