Based on the information you provide, do note that herpes treatment is intended to reduce the outbreak, but it cannot cure herpes virus. Antiviral drugs can help speed up the healing of your wound and reduce pain.

Use soft soap when bathing, try to bathe in hot water, and keep the affected area clean and dry. You are also advised to wear loose cotton clothing to keep the area comfortable.
