Expert:  DR MED MD replied 2 years ago.
Herpes does not have permanent cure.

You can only reduce outbreaks. This can be done my taking prophylactic antiviral therapy.

Medication are usually given if some is having frequent outbreaks.

You are having only outbreaks only twice a year.

Antiviral medication can be taken when you have these lesion t. This will help to reduce duration and severity of outbreaks.

Avoid unsafe sex.

Try to avoid stress this will also help you reduce outbreaks,

What is prophylatic antviral therapy
Expert:  DR MED MD replied 2 years ago.
Low dose of antiviral medication is given to reduce or avoid outbreak of herpes infection.

This is given in patients having more frequent outbreak.

Your doctor may recommend that you take a medicine daily, even when you're not experiencing any signs of an outbreak, to minimize your chances of recurrent outbreaks.
