    Hello. The episode you currently have may be treated with antiviral but it does not clear the virus from the body hence you may still get recurrence. You need to see a Doctor to confirm the diagnosis and medications will be given to shorten the current episode. To prevent outbreaks suppressive therapy can be used.
