Which foods are best for a person with herpes? Also, what about a specific act of sex?

I have an outbreak of herpes that forms on my anus usually before or after my period. I have no health insurance so my meds will run out most of the time. In the meantime, while I find ways to replenish my prescription, what are foods I can consume more of to keep a healthy immune system to decrease flare ups and what foods should I avoid? Also, how unhealthy is anal sex if I have to worry about these flare ups? Is it possible or entirely off limits?
