Genital herpes treatment

Treat and suppress outbreaks before the first symptom. Prescription medication may also minimize the risk of transmitting herpes by decreasing viral shedding between outbreaks. A doctor or nurse practitioner will work with you to see if outbreak, suppressive, or intermittent therapy is right for you.

What type of genital herpes medication do you prescribe?
Our healthcare professionals prescribe valacyclovir (generic Valtrex) to treat genital herpes. When used properly, this medication can help prevent and clear up herpes outbreaks.
Is genital herpes medication effective?

Genital herpes medication is available, and it works extremely well. But it requires you to dedicate the time to learn about your condition and work with your physician or nurse practitioner to craft the ideal, personalized treatment plan.

When you do, you’ll be able to identify the first indication of your specific symptoms (prodrome) and use your medication to shorten or stop the outbreak from occurring.

What are the side effects of genital herpes medication?

What follows is a partial summary and does not include every side effect possible.

Common side effects include headache, feeling sick, dizziness, vomiting, diarrhea, skin reaction after exposure to sunlight (photosensitivity), rash, or itching (pruritus).

Uncommon side effects include feeling confused, seeing or hearing things that aren’t there (hallucinations), feeling very drowsy, tremors, or feeling agitated, shortness of breath (dyspnea), stomach discomfort, rash, sometimes itchy, hive-like rash (urticaria), low back pain (kidney pain), blood in the urine (hematuria), reduction in the number of blood platelets which are cells that help blood to clot (thrombocytopenia), reduction in the number of white blood cells (leucopenia), increase in substances produced by the liver

Rare side effects include unsteadiness when walking and lack of coordination (ataxia), slow, slurred speech (dysarthria), fits (convulsions), altered brain function (encephalopathy), unconsciousness (coma), confused or disturbed thoughts (delirium), kidney problems where you pass little or no urine. Lastly, watch out for a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis). These are rare in people taking Valtrex. Anaphylaxis is marked by the rapid development of flushing, itchy skin rash, swelling of the lips, face, neck, and throat—causing difficulty in breathing (angioedema), fall in blood pressure leading to collapse. If any of these occur, get emergency treatment immediately

Can a doctor or nurse practitioner treat genital herpes remotely?

Yes. If your genital herpes has been diagnosed by a physician, our healthcare professionals can prescribe medication and help you dial in the most effective treatment plan for your unique needs.

Healthcare professionals on the Ro platform use telemedicine technologies to treat you in the same way they treat patients in-person. Doctors ask you questions to evaluate your symptoms and make sure it’s safe and appropriate to prescribe medication. The healthcare professionals on the Ro platform use your answers to assess your condition and create a treatment plan. That’s why it’s vital you answer each question to the best of your knowledge and ensure that every communication with your physician and nurse practitioner is truthful, accurate, and thorough.

Do I need to take a photo of my genital herpes outbreak?
No. But you do need to have your genital herpes previously diagnosed by a physician.
Why is the medication for oral and genital herpes the same?
Though they infect different parts of the body, cold sores (oral herpes) and genital herpes are caused by the same virus. There are two strains of the herpes virus—cold sores are more frequently caused by HSV-1, while genital herpes is more commonly associated with HSV-2. Both strains of the virus can be effectively treated using the same medication. .
How much does a visit cost?
Your online visit costs $15. This doesn’t include the cost of your medication (if prescribed). If a physician or nurse practitioner determines you’re not a good candidate for telemedicine, you’ll get a full refund for your online visit.
