Why Treat Your HSV 1 When There’s A Natural Herpes Cure?
Herpes Simplex Virus, more commonly known as “herpes” affects 1 in 6 people. So if you were just diagnosed, even though your initial reaction may be to hide inside and never go outside again, know that you’re not the only one who has herpes.
When you hear “herpes”, people automatically think of the sexually transmitted disease. They’re only half right. There are actually two types of Herpes Simplex that can affect you. The one that affects the genitals is Herpes Simplex 2. There’s another type of herpes that is no less embarrassing and uncomfortable. Herpes Simplex 1 is also known as oral herpes or Herpes 1 and causes the same sores that appear on the genitals to appear on the mouth.
How do you contract HSV 1?
You get the herpes simplex 1 virus by coming into contact with another person who has the virus. You can get it by kissing, sharing a toothbrush, or using the same eating utensils as someone with HSV 1. The problem with herpes is that some people don’t know that they are carrying the virus at all. Or, there’s the misconception that once you have one herpes outbreak that the virus is out of your system. In all actuality, the virus can lay dormant in your body without showing any symptoms, making it possible to both spread and contract HSV1 even when there aren’t any visible sores.
