There are great antivirals out there. To speed up the suppression of herpes, one could go on a course for a few months. take a few months off then take another course.
I used to study viruses, i was surprised to read that about 80% or more people in the western world have had HSV1 and over 25% have had HSV 2. I know there can occasionally be complications - so it would be great if they could 'cure it', like they actually have with Hepatitis C.
The issue is that Herpes is not blood borne like hepatitis, making it much harder to target.
