I have herpes and I am on once a day valtrex. However, I have breakouts every few months (maybe due to stress). I am currently working and competing my degree. Whenever, there’s an exam I will sure have a cold sores on my lips. Its embressing when I have to work and stuffs.

I know valtrex will also reduces the possibility of passing it on to boyfriend. He doesn’t know about m condition. I will let him know hen the time is right.

I will like to ask a few questions:

  1. How can I reduce frequency of the breakout?
  2. Should I change medication?
  3. How can I reduce the risk of getting my bf infected?
  4. Will herpes go away eventually? (I have see some articles somewhere that they will go away eventually)

Thanks:)
