Can I Escape Herpes?

Dear Dr. Tom:

It’s the first time I’ve got herpes and my doctor prescribed famciclovir and penciclovir for 5 days. What are my chances of getting out of this disease?

Dr. Tom’s Response:

Dear Anonymous Who Asked About Famciclovir:

With today’s knowledge you have no chance to escape a herpetic infection through treatment. Famvir is an anti-herpetic drug, but herpes is still forever. The prescription antivirals make herpetic infection more tolerable, and they are being studied for their possible ability to lessen shedding.
