herpes simplex is a contagious but not very serious infection. major part of population has it. once it infects a person the virus keeps lying in the body and the moment the person gets immuno compromised due to physical stress it appears on upper or lower lip. its in form of cluster of small eruptions which finally break open and form localized blisters. there is no permanent cure for herpes . you can control its symptoms once you has an episode.

take tab VALCIVIR 500 TWICE DAILY for 5 days and valcivir 500 once daily for one week.

Vaniqa 13.9% 10g cream apply on the open lesion.

take care.
