Herpes

Herpes simplex is a fatal viral infection caused by herpes simplex virus. The infection is classified according to the part of the infected body. Oral herpes involves a face or mouth. The result may be small blisters in those groups, which are often called cold wounds or fever blisters or sore throat. Genital herpes often referred to as ringworm, can have at least signs or may have blisters which are open and resulting in small ulcers. They usually recover in two to four weeks. Risks or shooting can be pain before blisters appear. Herpes cycle between the period of active disease after the period without symptoms. The first episode is often more severe and may be associated with fever, muscular pain, swollen lymph nodes, and headaches. Over time, episodes of active disease decrease frequency and severity. Other disorders due to herpes simplex include herpetic vital when it has fingers, eye ring, brain herpes infection, and newborn ringworm when it affects newborns.

Basically, There are two types of herpes simplex virus, type 1 (HSV-1) and type 2 (HSV-2). HSV-1 more commonly causes infection around the mouth, while HSV-2 more commonly causes genital infections. They come in direct contact with the body fluids or wounds of the infected person. The infection can also occur when the symptoms do not exist. Genital herpes is mainly classified as a sexually transmitted infection. They come in direct contact with the body fluids or wounds of the infected person. The infection can also occur when the symptoms do not exist. It can spread to a baby during childbirth. After the infection, the virus is taken into the nerve cell bodies along with the sensory nerves, where they reside all their life. Reasons for repetition can include lack of immune function, tension, and contact with sunlight. Diagnosis of oral and genital herpes is usually done on the basis of symptoms. Detection of herpes DNA in the fluid from viral culture or blisters may confirm the diagnosis. Blood tests for antibodies against the virus can confirm the previous infection but will be negative in the new infection.

Avoiding Vagina is the most effective way to avoid genital infections by avoiding oral and anal sex. The use of condom reduces the risk. The daily antiviral drug taken by someone with the infection can also reduce the spread. There is no vaccine available and once there is no treatment, there is no treatment. Paracetamol (acetaminophen) and occasional lidocaine can be used to help symptoms. Treatment with antiviral medication such as Echlovir or Valaciclovir may reduce the severity of symptomatic episodes.

Worldwide rates of HSV-1 or HSV-2 are between 60% and 95% of adults. HSV-1 is usually achieved during childhood. Rates of both increases with the age of the people. Rates of HSV-1 are between 70% and 80% of the population of low socioeconomic status and 40% to 60% of the population of better socioeconomic status. Worldwide, approximately 536 million people (16% of the population) were infected with HSV-2 as of 2003, which were accompanied by higher rates in women and developing countries. Most people are suffering from HSV-2 but do not realize that they are infected.
