Summary about Genital Herpes

The herpes simplex virus causes genital herpes, a common sexually transmitted infection (HSV). The virus is spread primarily through sexual contact. The virus remains dormant in your body after the initial infection and can reactivate several times a year. Pain, itching, and sores in the genital area are all symptoms of genital herpes. However, you might not show any signs or symptoms of genital herpes. Even if you don't have any visible sores, you can be contagious if you're infected.

Genital Herpes Facts and Figures

According to the World Health Organization, genital herpes is common in people ages 15 to 49. Around 13% of people worldwide have the HSV-2 infection. This disease is more easily transferred from men to women during sexual intercourse. Some further facts and statistics about the incidence and prevalence of genital herpes have been listed below:

Symptoms of Genital Herpes

  • tiny bumps
  • itching
  • oozing blisters
  • blisters
  • pain in the genitals
  • scabs on skin

Women may find sores on the cervix, vagina, or external genitals. On the other hand, men may have sores on the penis or scrotum.

Causes of Genital Herpes

A virus causes genital herpes. Following are the two causes of genital herpes:

  • HSV-1: This is the type that typically causes mouth sores or fever blisters. HSV-1 is most commonly transmitted through skin-to-skin contact. When compared to HSV-2 infection, recurrences are much less common.
  • HSV-2: This is the type that causes genital herpes most widely. Sexual and skin-to-skin contact are both ways for the virus to spread. Whether or not you have an open sore, HSV-2 is very common and highly contagious.

Preventive Measures of Genital Herpes

There are many preventive measures for genital herpes. Following are some of them:

  • Always use a condom whenever you have sexual contact.
  • Avoid intercourse at all costs if your partner is showing symptoms of herpes.

Genital herpes has no known cure. Prescription antiviral medications for genital herpes may be used to:

  • During an initial outbreak, aid in the healing of sores.
  • In recurrent outbreaks, reduce the severity and duration of symptoms.
  • Reduce the risk of spreading the herpes virus to others.
