Brief Answer:
Herpes treatments- the most recommended ones.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for using HCM to post your question.

Is this cream recommended by your doctor?
That cream, it's not from the recommended treatments of Herpes genitalis.

Instead what is recommended is:
recommended treatment options for daily suppressive therapy for recurrent genital herpes
Acyclovir tablet 400 mg orally twice daily or Famciclovir 250 mg orally twice daily or Valacyclovir 500 mg orally once daily (might be less effective than other dosing regimens in patients with ≥ 10 recurrences per year), etc.

So I would advice to talk to your doctor. If You have tried any of these and not getting better, then maybe what you have it's not herpes and you need confirmation. Because these ones above and the best treatments for herpes.

Hope this is helpful.
Let me know if you need more clarifications. Otherwise please kindly close and rate the answer.
