You have another illness which triggers a recurrence of herpes — a course of suppressive therapy may be appropriate until the condition triggering the outbreak has resolved. This strategy may have more disadvantages than advantages. Only instead of getting a cold sore on my mouth, I get one in my genital area. Others might focus more energy on herpes than on the relationship. Good relationships stand and fall on far more important issues — including communication, respect and trust. If your recurrences are not suppressed by this dose, you should discuss this with your doctor as taking mg four times a day may be more effective. Frequently, what knowledge they have is coloured by myth and misconception. The doctor should have given your partner a course of antiviral treatment. However, there are commercially available blood tests becoming available which can distinguish between herpes simplex virus type 1 HSV-1 and herpes simplex virus type 2 HSV-2 antibodies.
