Herpes or HSV (Herpes simplex virus) is treated with antiviral tablets.
The antiviral tablets for Herpes treatment can either be ‘episodic’; which means taking the tablets when there are symptoms to reduce the severity of symptoms and the length of time they are present for; or treatment can be continuous, which means taking tablets daily to prevent Herpes symptoms. The doctor will discuss the treatment options with you.
