Genital Herpes Overview
Genital Herpes is an extremely common STD caused by the transmission of the Herpes Simplex Virus Type-2. Once acquired, individuals will experience genital ulcers (outbreaks) for the rest of their lives. The severity of genital outbreaks changes over time, with the initial episode generally being the most painful and emotionally difficult.
Acyclovir Cream is a common topical ointment for treating herpes sores. This prescription-only cream acts fast and decreases outbreak healing time.
