Don’t Let Genital Herpes Infections Control You
Genital herpes is a form of a sexually-transmitted disease (STD) that any individual who is sexually active can contract. Even though most people who have the virus do not even have symptoms, it is important to know the signs as it is a disease that can spread to others even when symptoms are not present. This highly-contagious virus is usually spread through sex, and is caused by the herpes simplex virus-2 (HSV-2) or -1 (HSV-1), the same virus responsible for cold sores. A standard genital herpes treatment could include medicine that assist sores in healing more quickly and attempt to prevent additional outbreaks.
