|Cure for Herpes ?
Jun 17, 2001
Dr., I have heard that there is a cure for Herpes 2. Is that correct and where can I find it? I was diagnosed several years ago as having Herpes 2 during an insurance medical. I have never noticed anything terribly unusual in the genital area....no sores or blisters or such. Is this normal? I would appreciate your help!
Response from Dr. Feinberg
There is no cure for herpes infection, but it can be controlled with medication for poeple who have frequent outbreaks. It doesn't sound like that is what's happening to you. It is indeed normal to harbor the herpes virus and have no apparent disease from it-- consider yourself lucky.
