Herpes Viral Infection

Here’s why you should avoid unprotected sex

About

Herpes simplex (Herpes) is the name accredited to the disease brought on by the herpes simplex virus. It mostly attacks the genital area or the mouth.
Throughout the world, the rate of herpes in adults is between 60% and 95%. [2]

-- Spreads by sexual contact
-- Treatment can help, but this ailment has no definite cure
-- Chronic – can last for years or be lifelong
-- Usually self-diagnosable
-- Lab tests or imaging often required
The HSV-1 simplex virus is responsible for infections in the mouth area, while HSV-2 habitually leads to genital infections.
Ages affected: Between 0 and 13: Rare; Above 14: Very rare, predominant.

Symptoms

Usually self-diagnosable:
The onset of pain, itching and tiny sores is early, which then form into ulcers and scabs. Left untreated, herplex can beget complex disorders such as herpes keratitis or herpes encephalitis.

People may experience:
Pain areas – in the penis or vagina
Urination becomes painful
Also common – genital sores, pins & needles sensation, skin rashes
Mental issues – mood swings, depression

Treatment

Self-care:
Herpes can be prevented easily by avoiding unprotected oral, vaginal or anal sex.
Direct contact with body fluids or contusions of a herpes patient should be avoided at all costs.

Medications:
Antiviral drugs are usually prescribed by doctors to curb the symptoms. Topical antivirals are also effective.

Specialists:
It is recommended to consult OBGYN doctors on Mfine (www.mfine.co), in case one observes symptoms similar to herpes on one’s body.
