What is Genital Herpes?

  • Market Overview:

Genital Herpes is caused by HSV (herpes simplex virus) and had become a common sexually transmitted infection which causes blisters and lesions in genital areas. Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) or type 2 (HSV-2) causes genital herpes, which is the major cause of genital ulcers. HSV-1 causes non-sexually transmitted oral herpes infection and is usually detected around the mouth (cold sores). HSV-1 is a virus that causes labial or pharyngeal infection and is spread mostly through non-genital contact.

Genital herpes is typically transmitted through sexual contact with an infected person, whether through vaginal, anal, or oral sex. It can also be spread through skin-to-skin contact in areas not covered by condoms or dental dams.

Symptoms of genital herpes include painful sores or blisters in the genital or anal area, as well as flu-like symptoms such as fever and swollen lymph nodes. However, some individuals may carry the virus without experiencing noticeable symptoms.

There is no cure for genital herpes, but antiviral medications can help manage and reduce symptoms. It’s important for individuals with genital herpes to communicate with their sexual partners and take precautions to prevent the spread of the virus. Safe sex practices, including condom use, can reduce the risk of transmission.
