Q. I was recently diagnosed with genital herpes and so did my partner, we are on the medication because we have an outbreak but we just had sex and now my vagina is irritating, will the outbreak come back again or anything I should be aware about?
A. The medication will help with outbreaks of the virus but it will not cure it. If one partner has an outbreak it can be spread to the other partner. If you or your partner have frequent outbreaks you may decide to take the medication once a day. Talk to your primary care provider about this or schedule an appointment at Corner Health Center.
