Is there a cure for genital herpes?
There is no cure for genital herpes. Once you have contracted the virus, it remains for life. Some people with the infection will only ever get one outbreak, while others may develop the symptoms many times. For people who have frequent outbreaks, there are antiviral medications available that can help reduce the symptoms and prevent future outbreaks.
