Thanks for posting your query.
I can understand your concern.
If you have recurrent episodes of herpes, I would recommend that you need suppressive therapy with acyclovir for a few months.
Suppressive therapy means low dose acyclovir for long period of time.
I would suggest that you visit your doctor for the dose adjustment that you require for the treatment.
Suppressive therapy has proven to reduce the recurrences of herpes.
Please let me know if you have any queries.

Does such herpes can happen on skin also..i mean the skin which cover the penis , further can you suggest a dose for few months.
Thanks for your reply.
Herpes can occur on the skin also.
The dose of acyclovir for suppressive therapy is 400 mg once a day. But I will recommend that you see your doctor to confirm the same in your case too.
