Hello readers! Just wanted to start this post with a disclaimer that this post is merely an opinion and by no means fact. Please just read it, and come to your own conclusions. It’s an article that we read awhile ago and thought it was a smart, concise opinion that was well explained. It’s about why this individual thinks all people infected with the herpes virus should be completely honest with any and all potential partners. Hope you enjoy!
The question today is whether or not oral herpes can spread and become genital herpes and vice versa. The answer is a resounding yes. The most common way that oral herpes is spread to the genital region is through oral sex. For more on how to avoid the spreading of herpes in this manner, please read on…
The answer is absolutely not. This is myth that thankfully has not been spread widely. Herpes is a virus that does not have a cure and that fact is inescapable. But if one uses a herpes treatment, the outbreaks can be minimized significantly. Either way, contracting the herpes virus will have no effect on a person’s ability to be physical and active through life.
Thankfully, it is an uncommon occurrence for a mother that carries the herpes virus to spread it to her newborn child during pregnancy. However, this is not to say that the virus will never be passed on during delivery so it is important to get all of the facts from a medical professional. If an outbreak is present during the actual delivery, the risk increases that the virus could be passed along.
Genital herpes, although sometimes very uncomfortable and certainly socialized stigmatized, is never life threatening. This is not to say that the disease shouldn’t be taken extremely seriously however. It is important to learn all about the condition if you have contracted it in order to minimize the severity of the outbreaks. Using a reputable herpes treatment and understanding the disease will make living with herpes very tolerable.
There are organizations known as herpes support groups where people who carry the herpes virus can talk with others and obtain valuable information about how best to manage the condition. Some of these groups are non-profit “chat” groups, others are more for obtaining medical information. The topics are wide-ranging but often focus on how to manage herpes outbreaks and keep the severity and frequency of outbreaks to a minimum.
The herpes simplex is a viral disease that is usually found on either the areas around the mouth or the genitals. Herpes simplex virus 1 (commonly known as HSV-1) is oral herpes and by far and away the most common. Herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2) is genital herpes and is not always as easy to detect since many cases are asymptomatic. And although there is no herpes cure, there are treatments available that can help manage the condition and minimize outbreaks.
There are quite a few factors that can affect how often and how severe herpes outbreaks will be for those who suffer from the condition. Yes, using a reputable herpes treatment at the onset of every outbreak is critical. But there are also ways to minimize the severity of outbreaks by controlling your diet without making too many enormous changes.
The best way to minimize the severity and duration of either genital or oral herpes outbreaks is to understand why and when the outbreaks happen. Using a reputable herpes treatment at the onset of an outbreak will lessen the severity and can also prevent future outbreaks from returning quickly. In this short post, we’ll point out a few of the main indicators of the starting of an outbreak so you are aware of what to look for and when to begin using your treatment of choice.
A cold sore is a common name viral lesion or outbreak that occurs around the lips or mouth. And yes, most often these lesions are a result of the presence of the herpes virus (simplex 1) in the person with the blister. However, not every single outbreak that looks like a cold sore is an indicator of the herpes virus. Although we must caution anyone who does develop a cold sore to keep a close eye on how regularly these outbreaks occur. The occasional cold sore (less than one a year) can come from from an infected cut or open wound around the mouth. But if the cold sores or fever blisters are occurring with any regularity, it is fairly likely that you have contracted the herpes virus and should seek a reputable herpes treatment to manage the frequency and severity of these outbreaks.
