I have an outburst of genital herpes every 20-30 days or so.
The episodes are not very serious, but they are VERY frequent (are they?).
I use acyclovir 800 mg every 4 hours for 7-10 days to manage the episodes.
The little ulcers heal OK, but genital herpes pops up again usually after 2-3 weeks on average.
Is that "normal"? Or is it too frequent?
If it is too frequent, what could the cause be?
How can I try to reduce the frequency of HSV-2 episodes (short of long-term acyclovir suppressive therapy)?
Thank you in advance.
