Thanks for your query. HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUSES are dorment viruses, they just exacerbation only if immunodeficient or pregnancy. Acute herpetic lesions should be treated with ACYCLOVIR tablets, and main protection in last trimester and at the time of delivery to prevent neonatal transmission.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups.
Wish you good health.
