How valacyclovir can help you

You know your body better than anyone. And when it comes to oral herpes, your ability to recognize when an outbreak is about to occur helps you know precisely when you need treatment. 

If you can detect your early symptoms, the medication can stop the outbreak before it happens. And if valacyclovir can’t stop the outbreak, it may reduce a more moderate outbreak than you might have had otherwise.

Oral Herpes 101

Herpes Simplex Virus type 1 (HSV-1) is the virus that causes oral herpes. In very rare cases, Herpes Simplex Virus type 2 can also cause oral herpes. The transmission of oral herpes is through oral contact. From sharing a drink to a kiss, it’s pretty easy to pass along (1).  And it’s important to note that without physical symptoms, oral herpes can still be spread. 

Seventy percent of the world’s population is infected with HSV-1, making it extremely common. And about 50% of Americans between the ages of 14-49 are living with HSV-1 (1).
