I have herpes on my face, nose, ears, throat and head. What is the treatment? I have small bumps all around the left side of my lips, the left side of my nose, around the left eye, left side of head, and inside my left ear.  It is very painful. I consulted my doctor. She said it is Herpes and recommended me to take aciclovir.

Hi Raaj,


I'm sorry to hear about the discomfort you've been experiencing, but it's good to know that you've consulted your doctor. I suggest following her advice and trying the medicine she prescribed you. Hopefully, it will help to decrease the frequency and severity of your outbreaks. In addition to this, try these simple solutions and home remedies that may ease the pain of outbreaks.
