Partner having genital herpes HSV1. Is it curable?

My husband is infected from genital herpes HSV1 and the amount is 1.21 during DNA sculpture test. Is there any way to cure the disease? He is 27 years old and he was infected during last month. He is in Malaysia now. I m having a 2 month baby. I m much annoyed as the disease is spreadable. Is there chance for the disease to be spread to me and my baby?

Their is no way to cure the disease,it can only be prevented.generally recurrence is or your baby can be infected by coming in contact with active lesion.avoid sexual contact during active phase.this virus remains in body life long.recurrence occurs in case of trauma,fever,or any other stress.
