... effected area till it disappeared?
You really should be on the pill, and if you break out often, take it for maintanence. The cream is only for your face and lips.
You can use it but it is not the treatment of choice. It is best to use the pills for genital herpes. You can use it in addition to the pills though for your first outbreak. It doesnt prevent future outbreaks and this is why it is not the drug of choice for genital herpes. It should be used on external parts only so if you are female, only on the labia and the outer portions-not inside the vagina.
