You can find herpes cream over the counter in the form of fungicides like Lamisil, Lotrimin and Tinactin creams for fungal issues like athletes foot or jock itch.
Matter of fact, prescription Lamisil Tablets prescribed for nail fungus will cure herpes every time.
There is absolutely no evidence that sores said to be herpes have anything in the world to do with a virus. Your doctor has never seen a herpes virus, you have never seen one, I have never seen one and the lab tech who analyzes blood samples and cultures in herpes test have never seen a herpes virus.
The public accepts herpes as a virus on pure blatant hearsay and antivirals do nothing to outbreaks in comparison to fungicides.
You can get fungicides at any drug store or grocery store. If you cannot afford the fungicides you might use water and baking soda paste. I've got lots of information on curing herpes and fungicides on my hubs.
