Just found out I have herpes

I've been to see several doctors over the past few days due to having severe pain down below and urinary problems. A doctor has given me an examination and has confirmed its herpes and I've now got medicine for it. But it's not stopping the pain and although I mentioned this to him he said there wasn't much he could do and I should see him in a few days if it doesn't go away wit the medicine. I'm also still suffering with urinary problems that aren't improving because of the ulcerations I've got. Does anyone know of any home remedies I can use to help ease the pain? The doctors surgery will not be open over the new year and I cannot get another appointment and I need something NOW!
