Herpes Simplex

Note: BestDietForMe.com does NOT provide medical advice or diagnoses. You should always consult your physician first, before beginning any weight loss regimen or if suffering from a medical condition.

What Is Herpes? (Herpes Simplex, Also called: HSV)

Herpes is an infection that is caused by a herpes simplex virus (HSV). Oral herpes causes cold sores around the mouth or face. Genital herpes affects the genitals, buttocks or anal area. Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease.  (STD). You can get it from having sex, even oral sex. The virus can spread even when sores are not present. Mothers can also infect their babies during childbirth.

Some people have no symptoms. Others get sores near the area where the virus has entered the body. They turn into blisters, become itchy and painful, and then heal. The virus can be dangerous in newborn babies or in people with weak immune systems.

Most people have outbreaks several times a year. Over time, you get them less often. Medicines to help your body fight the virus can help lessen symptoms and decrease outbreaks. Correct usage of latex condoms can reduce, but not eliminate, the risk of catching or spreading herpes.

Warning symptoms of itching, burning, increased sensitivity, or tingling sensation may occur about 2 days before lesions appear.

 

Skin lesions or rash around the lips, mouth, and gums

Small blisters (vesicles) filled with clear yellowish fluid

Blisters on a raised, red, painful skin area

Blisters that form, break, and ooze

Yellow crusts that slough to reveal pink, healing skin

Several smaller blisters that merge to form a larger blister

Mild fever (may occur)

Genital herpes is caused by herpes simplex virus (HSV). There are two types of HSV.

 

HSV type 1 most commonly infects the mouth and lips, causing sores known as fever blisters or cold sores. 

 

HSV type 2 is the usual cause of genital herpes, but it also can infect the mouth.

Treatment    

Untreated, the symptoms will generally subside in 1 to 2 weeks. Antiviral medications given by mouth may shorten the course of the symptoms and decrease pain.

Sores caused by Herpes often come back again and again. The antiviral medicines work best if you take it when the virus is just starting to come back -- before you see any sores. If you the virus returns frequently, your doctor may recommend that you take the medicines all the time.

Wash blisters gently with soap and water to minimize the spread of the virus to other areas of skin. An antiseptic soap may be recommended. Applying ice or warmth to the area may reduce pain.

Take precautions to avoid infecting others.
