I’ve HSV-2 for years but it keeps reoccur every now and then. I’m using Acyclovir Stade 5g cream but doesn’t seem effective. I’m planning to get the oral med but it requires prescription, which I don’t have or plan to get from doctor. Please advice. Thanks a million.

Hi, thank you for contacted us to ask your medical condition. I am happy to help you with your current problem.

For your information, HSV-2 can occur with certain risk factors include :

  • having multiple sexual partner
  • having another sexual transmitted disease
  • weak immune system
  • being a female
  • having sex at younger age

Enjoy a beautiful moment with your loved one safely.

You are adviced to practise safe sex to avoid this infections to keep recuring. This virus once it infected a person, it will remain in your body but in inactive form. The conditions listed above might activate the virus again to produce symptoms.

There are few ways to practise safe sex :

  • Use a condom
  • Get a long term partner
  • Get tested for sexual transmitted disease frequently
  • Dont rush into higher risk activities

Get professional advice for a better sexual health.

I suggest you to meet a Doctor to have a proper examination on your condition in order to give you a better medication. You also can talk with our specialist at (DoctorOnCall) in a private conversation to know more about herpes virus. Thank you.
