Hi there...I can understand your concern. Acyclovir suppression therapy can be started if you are having recurrent genital herpes. It involves taking acyclovir for about 6 months to 1 year. But first the disease should be confirmed through HSV 2 IgG testing. Consult a dermatologist. They will evaluate you further and start on necessary treatment.
