Genital herpes usually clears up on its own, but anti-viral medication, like Aciclovir, can be used to manage symptoms and shorten the duration of outbreaks. If the blisters are painful or uncomfortable, there are things you can do at home: 

  • Keep the area clean to prevent infection and wear loose fitting clothes 
  • Use an ice pack wrapped in a cloth to soothe the area 
  • Apply petroleum jelly or a pain killing cream to reduce pain when you pee
  • Increase your fluid intake to dilute your urine

We also recommend that you avoid having sex until after your blisters have healed.
