What is herpes?
Herpes comes in several different forms, and affects approximately 90% of the American population. Over 15 million new cases of herpes are diagnosed every year – 40,000 cases each day.
Extremely contagious, the most common herpes infections are caused by herpes simplex 1 and herpes simplex 2. Herpes simplex 1 is the main cause of cold sores and mouth blisters (oral herpes), whilst herpes simplex 2 is the main cause of genital herpes. Once herpes has been contracted, it is irremediable.
Herpes outbreaks normally begin with small blisters, but other symptoms can include discomfort, pain and itching. A burning of the skin often indicates a herpes outbreak is imminent. If untreated, herpes blisters can grow, lasting up to several days, forming scabs at the end of the cycle.
Sufferers of genital herpes also 'shed' viral particles from their genitals and this viral shedding plays a major role in the worldwide herpes epidemic.
What causes herpes?
Passed on by direct contact with skin, herpes is extremely contagious. Once someone is infected, the herpes virus resides in one end of the spinal column. Genital herpes occurs in the ganglia at the base of the spine, whilst oral herpes affects the nerves at the top of the spine.
Weak immunity is the most common cause of herpes, as the virus travels down the ganglia, erupting on the skin's surface. Blisters often reappear in the same part of the skin during further outbreaks of herpes.
A weakened immunity can be caused by illness, stress, trauma, or exposure to environmental toxins.
Herpes sufferers can, to a certain extent, control their herpes outbreaks. This is achieved through modification of lifestyle, appropriate precautions, and the use of non-prescription products and/or prescription medication.
