herpes simplex type 2

A: This is a common problem and many people in around the world face it. The risk of this disease is multiplied if one has multiple sex partners.

What's the difference between herpes simplex Virus type 1 (HSV-1) and herpes simplex Virus 2 (HSV-2)?

A: idk dont want either one and both prob suck Name and location. no real difference -both are a virus and can be controlled with antiviral meds. they can be transmitted sexually and by direct contact. they are found in any warm, moist spot on the body. I am pretty sure one is genital herpes and one is oral herpes, Like cold sores are a type of herpes. Generally, a person can only get HSV-2 infection during sexual contact with someone who has a genital HSV-2 infection. HSV-1 can cause genital herpes, but it more commonly causes infections of the mouth and lips, so-called "fever blisters."

Could my partner have herpes 1 and 2?

A: Hi Micki, The only thing that "hgab" could mean-- and it is not a commonly used abbreviation because it is so inexact-- is "herpes genitalis antibody."  I checked with my clinical lab, and they have no test with that abbreviation. However, "herpes genitalis" was an outdated term for herpes simplex type 2. Labs now have the capability of checking for IgG antibody (produced a long time after an acute episode of herpes) and IgM antibody (immediately produced antibody during an acute episode) for both herpes simplex types 1 and


What Is the Most Common Treatment for herpes simplex?

A: The herpes simplex virus can manifest as painful blisters and open lesions on the genitals or face. The virus cannot be cured, and infected people often suffer from occasional outbreaks throughout their lives. Certain measures can be taken, however, to reduce the likelihood of frequent episodes and lessen the healing time of active sores. Using a topical antiviral cream during an outbreak is the most common treatment for herpes simplex, but persistent problems may require daily oral medications to suppress the virus.

My daughter has herpes simplex virus, can she also have mono at the same time?

A: Yes, it is possible to have multiple viral diseases. Blood tests at the doctor''s office can identify what is wrong with your daughter. Of course she can. which simplex? 1 or 2. simplex 1 is like a cold sore. simplex 2 is like the genital kind. Which one does she have and then maybe you could find out by looking that one up on the web. I think when you have cold like symptoms...that is not good. A doctor could answer this best. If her mouth is swolen up and she is drooling yelp she can. herpes is just a couple of sores. have her try campho phenic to dry them up. Sure both are opportunistic type diseases. Lower...


What is the permanent cure for herpes caused by herpes simplex Virus?

A: The only permanent cure is death. Once you have the virus- you have it for life- there is no cure- you can only treat the symptoms- like the open sores. there is no parmenant cure. imedicine help to controll it . There is no cure...Once you have it, you always will. There is medication you can take daily to prevent breakouts, and there is medication you take when you have breakouts, but nothing to get rid of it completely.....Prevention is the best answer: Condoms... Currently, there is not a known cure for herpes, and Im not sure we will ever have a known cure. The reason being is that the antibodies for herpes will always be in the blood. There is a company called Aurx that is working on a vaccine for herpes, one...

A: You can have a relationship but DO NOT KISS THEM. It is VERY easy to pass on to others...a very healthy virus. Do not share their utensils, cups, toothbrush...anything that is in the mouth. Keep it a PLATONIC relationship til the virus has died off. (Even sex is a bad idea!) Yes Just neva have sex any herpes lies dormant and an spread even without outbreaks ..you end up living on some kind of meds. If you''ve just meet somone and they were up front and told you before things got serious, than that says alot about that person. I wasn''t so lucky!! Me on the other hand am very honest about it. In 15 years I''ve never passed it to anyone. It in no way has affected my life and I do not take prescription drugs for it. I am taking Red Marine Algae for it. ( that''s a...
