What is herpes?

Herpes, aka herpes simplex virus, is a common sexually transmitted infection (STI) that affects an estimated 1 in 8 people. There are two types of herpes virus: HSV-1 (aka oral herpes) and HSV-2 (aka genital herpes), but either type can cause sores in either location. 

Symptoms and frequency of outbreaks can vary from person to person. Even without visible symptoms, herpes can still be transmitted to sexual partners.

Oral herpes (HSV-1) symptoms often include:

  • Small, open, painful sores or blisters in or around the mouth (aka cold sores)
  • Flu-like symptoms such as fever, body aches, and swollen glands

Genital herpes (HSV-2) symptoms often include:

  • Small, painful sores or blisters around the genitals or anus
  • Itching and/or burning sensations
  • Flu-like symptoms such as fever, body aches, and swollen glands

How can I get rid of a herpes outbreak fast?

The most commonly prescribed antiviral pills for herpes outbreaks are:

  • Acyclovir (Zovirax)
  • Famciclovir (Famvir)
  • Valacyclovir (Valtrex)

We can also prescribe topical treatments, like lidocaine cream to help with pain during outbreaks or topical antivirals you can apply directly to the outbreak.

After you fill out our intake form on your phone or computer, your Hey Jane provider will evaluate the whole picture. This includes discussing your history of prior infections, your current symptoms, and what has or hasn’t worked for you in the past.

Hi! I’m on medication for herpes outbreaks and just started dating someone new. We were wondering what precautions we should take to lower the chances of transmission?
Amy
That is a great question and I’m so glad you and your new partner are able to talk openly about this! Transmission risk is highest when there’s an active outbreak so you’ll want to avoid intercourse when you have one until the scabs heal. Be sure you use a barrier method like an external condom, internal condom or dental dam for penetrative or oral sex. If you need a refill on your antiviral medication to prevent future outbreaks, please let me know.
