Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. I would suggest that he see his dr and consider starting a daily valtrex pill. This will prevent eruptions and will decrease asymptomatic shedding. This means times that he could infect you and not have symptoms. This decreases transmission to less than 1%. Using a condom of course can help also

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
