Having herpetic whitlow outbreaks. Taken anti-viral medicine. Have Sphincter of Oddi dysfunction. Medicine?

I keep having herpetic whitlow outbreaks, have taken the anti-viral meds. Out breaks are smaller than the original event. Anything else I can do? Seems to be about every 6 days or so. Mainly on right hand between two first fingers. I also have Sphincter of Oddi dysfunction so have to be careful somewhat with medicines
