Choosing a Herpes Simplex Treatment - Control Genital Herpes If you have been recently diagnosed with herpes, besides the emotional rollercoaster you are currently an unwitting participant on, a key decision you must make as early as possible is which herpes simplex treat ment are you going to use to control your genital herpes symptoms and outbreaks.

Those who still experience outbreaks will find their symptoms drastically reduced, healing time sped up significantly, and the time between outbreaks becoming longer and longer as they take the anti-virals. However, anti-virals are not for everyone. They are expensive, they can cause side effects, and they sometimes plain don't work.
