Our expert says:
Herpes is extremely common and there is no cure for it at this stage. The virus lie dormant in the nerve endings and when the immune system is weakens or with severe stress, the virus flares up resulting in the blisters that generally take a couple weeks to disappear. Acyclovir is the drug commonly used to treat the condition. Discuss your treatment options with your GP. Use condoms systematically and correctly.
