Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted viral infection which may continue as a life-long condition. Apart from taking some pain-killers like ibufren, some simple self-care measures should be adopted to reduce discomfort, e.g.

a) keep the infected part clean and dry;

b) use ice packs for local application;

c) bathe the affected area with warm saline water 3 times a day;

d) avoid food rich in fat and sugar;

e) wear loose-fitting cotton garments;

f) avoid sexual (especially oral) intercourse until the sores are fully healed.

Genital herpes, caused by Herpes Simplex Virus, can never be fully cured as the virus stays back life-long. So every possible care should be taken to prevent its onset, and to check the spread of infection.
