Is there a cure for viral oral infections?

Generally, most cases of viral oral infections are cured on their own. After several days have passed, your viral oral infection may go away unaided. Sometimes, antiviral medications are given to speed along that cure. Although these medications do not provide a cure, they can help you feel better faster. In some cases, though, no cure exists for viral oral infections, as the disease will appear over and over again throughout your life, lying dormant in your body.
