Genital Psorisis treatment with HSV2

So a long time ago I had a flare up of genital psoriasis and the doctor prescribed me Desonide for 2 times a day for a week. This worked great and only had a few little spots. I know have 2 larger spots where I usually get it and was going to get some of the desonide again except now I have HSV-2 which I hear topical steroids can cause the virus to re activate. I am taking Valtrex 1gm daily as a suppressant so not sure if this would help or not. Will desonide cause an outbreak while on Valtrex? Is there another treatment for psoriasis without steroids? Should I increase valtrex if I put the desonide on the spots?

As a side note I know these spots are psoriasis and not a HSV outbreak from prior occurrences. Thanks.

the daily suppressive therapy should keep it from being a non-issue.  you can even consider 500mg twice a day if need be if the topical steroids seem to be triggering your herpes.
