It is important to understand that not all cases of genital herpes have the same symptoms. Before you seek a treatment for herpes, you should become familiar with some of the common symptoms so that you know whether or not you have contracted the virus. Many people will assume that they have come in contact with the virus from a tingling or mild discomfort in the genital region. But this doesn’t necessarily mean that what you are experiencing is a sign of genital herpes.
Hi readers! We wanted to touch on a topic that is related to herpes in some cases, but is a broader subject that people who have not contracted the herpes virus must deal with as well. The topic for today is depression. Since we are certainly not psychologists or therapists of any kind, this post is not an effort to give out professional or specific advice. We just thought it would be wise to have a short discussion about depression since some sufferers of herpes are put into depressive states at some point or another while learning to deal with the virus.
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.
