There are quite a few symptoms to genital herpes that will make it relatively stressful to live with. Genital herpes can be a fairly painful condition as it can have regular discomfort so treating is usually necessary. Genital herpes treatment can get rid of the stressful symptoms associatd with the disease if done correctly. If genital herpes goes untreated for long enough the condition could get worse and while it may go away by itself over time it will most likely come back again. The best way to get rid of the condition and keep it away is to take the effort to use a genital herpes treatment method.

There are different ways to go about treating genital herpes. The most effective treatment method that most have found to give nearly instant results is antiviral medication. This would be drugs such as Zovirax or Famvir. Antiviral medication is a quick solution that works to treat the blisters and sores associated with genital herpes. There are other symptoms of genital herpes that you will want to deal with as quickly as possible. This would include the pain, fever, and general discomfort that is associated with the condition. To treat this you will likely get the best results by taking drugs that contain ibuprofen or acetaminophen.

Again, these are just quick treatment methods that should be practiced as soon as you get diagnosed with genital herpes. There are still some other treatment methods that you should follow for decent results throughout the whole treatment process. There are still some other effective home remedies for genital herpes that you could follow as well. For example, you could take a sitz bath to help treat the herpe sores.

Antiviral medication is not only beneficial to treating the blisters and sores but it can also slow down the speed that the virus develops. When the genital herpes outbreak first occurs the antiviral medication will treat it but it will not guarantee that there will be no further outbreaks. To treat the condition fully you will need to use a variety of genital herpes treatment methods and be persistent with the treatment.

Antiviral medication is not the main solution to treat ongoing outbreaks of genital herpes. You can continue to take antiviral medication even after further break outs and the results will show but it is not going to prevent future outbreaks, just slow the process down. It is up to you whether or not you wish to continue taking antiviral medication but it is definitely suggested.

Besides treating the genital herpes when it occurs you will also want to attempt to prevent it from transmitting to a sexual partner. There are various ways to do this and if you are sexually active you will want to do some research on the proper precautions to take. You will also want to change how you treat genital herpes if you are a pregnant woman as different precautions are necessary.

As just mentioned it is very important to make sure you try as much as possible to prevent transmitting the disease to a sexual partner. The best way of doing this is to obviously avoid any sexual activities while you have genital herpes. Once the treatment for the condition is over you can return to being sexually active. However, for the sake of your sexual partner(s) you will want to avoid sexual activity while you have genital herpes.

You will also want to read up further on how exactly to make sure you do not transmit the disease to anyone else to be perfectly sure nothing happens. Genital herpes is definitely something to take serious and you do not want to harm anyone else with the condition if you have it. If you do happen to be diagnosed with the condition then start genital herpes treatment immediately.
