If you have genital herpes and need treatment for outbreaks, you can request a prescription for the antiviral medications Aciclovir, Valaciclovir or Famciclovir using our online service.

If you suffer from six or more outbreaks of herpes a year or find your outbreaks particularly stressful, then you may wish to order herpes suppression therapy. This is a low dose of antiviral genital herpes treatment,  taken every day to help prevent future herpes outbreaks.

If you need to confirm if you’re a carrier of herpes, you can order a test online now.

How our service works

  • Complete a short questionnaire about your health. 
  • Order and pay for your treatment. 
  • A Alpha XR Online Doctor will check the treatment is appropriate for you.
  • Orders received before 4pm will be sent out the same day. Orders received after 4pm will be sent out the next working day.
  • Your treatment will be posted to you via your choice of first class or next day delivery.
  • This will be contactless delivery. Someone will need to be home to tell the courier that they can sign on your behalf or they won't be able to deliver your parcel.
  • The treatment arrives in plain, discreet packaging.

Common side effects from Aciclovir can include:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Feeling sick
  • Diarrhoea
  • Stomach pain
  • Skin rashes or itching
  • Tiredness

Common side effects from Valaciclovir can include:

  • Headaches
  • Feeling sick

The symptoms of herpes outbreaks will usually go away by themselves within 10 days, but they can be very painful during that time.

Alternatives to the antiviral medicines we offer include using an anaesthetic gel to ease the pain or soaking the affected skin with salt water.

If you would like to discuss your condition with one of our doctors, you can book a telephone consultation. Our doctors will be able to provide personalised advice on how to cope with genital herpes.

    Always good to have on hand. Before this product I was getting coldsores nearly every month. It was such an annoyance. My doctor recommended me buying this product. I'll never look back. I havent had a coldsore in two years! I take this when I feel a tingle, if I'm getting run down with a cold/ill or the weather is chaning as that normally triggers them. And amazingly it stops them from forming. Best thing I have ever purchased

    Having suffered with cold sores, what seemed like every other week, for several years and with the normal creams etc never working, a friend recommended this product. I have to say I cant remember, since taking these, ever having a cold sore. As a preventative product they have been perfect.
