Thanks for posting your query.

Unfortunately there is no known cure for herpes simplex. But there are a number of drugs that can help relieve or control the symptoms.

Antiviral drugs help reduce the severity of an outbreak. They also act by preventing the herpes simplex virus from multiplying.

During an outbreak there are certain measures that can be taken:
Pain killers like T. Paracetamol 10 mg/kg body weight.
Bathe the areas with salt solution.
Wear loose clothing.
Drink plenty of fluids.
Avoid exposure to sun.
