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.

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." herpes simplex 1 usually is associated with the...

Your great-aunt, who is known by the family to have the herpes simplex virus causing cold sores, kisses your child on the mouth. ..

A: This is a more than awkward situation. You don''t want to run the risk of offending your aunt and chances are she isn''t considering the risks of spreading the virus. Even more, you don''t want your child to have the herpes simplex virus. If you''re aunt is someone who wouldn''t overreact, approach the subject head on. Explain to her that you know she loves your child and would in no way harm them on purpose, but that by kissing him or her she could be spreading her cold sores. Go on to explain that the majority of people who have this virus contracted it completely innocently as a child. Simply ask her to show her affection in another manner. If you feel someone else could speak to her without causing an issue, ask them to do it. Since...


How To Minimize herpes simplex Virus-1 (HSV-1) Outbreaks

A: herpes simplex Virus-1 is a virus that causes viral and infectious diseases that are commonly acquired when sharing food, beverages or when kissing an infected individual. It appears as sores around the mouth or face. It can also be painful, like blisters when stretched or touched. It is so contagious that even if the sores have become a scab, it can still infect other persons easily. This is why you have to be very careful at all times. There is no known cure for this illness, however it is not as dangerous as it sounds. Usually, it takes two to twenty-two days for the blisters to fully intensify.

What are natural treatments for the herpes simplex Virus?

A: Smoking will have a negative effect on your herpes simplex. Though it may not be directly linked to outbreaks, stress is...and cigarettes certainly don''t help. I know you are looking for natural treatments, but i just wanted to briefly recommend Abreva, a non-perscription cold sore medication. It works wonders. Not only does it reduce th cold sore in size, but it will help it heal quicker. The one downfall is that the tiny little tube is quite pricey. As for home remedies, you should give tea tree oil a shot. Its a natural oil that is known to have healing properties. Just place a few dabs on with a cotton swab. It has a slightly minty taste that should tingle and relieve. Warm compresses work as well. Another remedy is called Manuka...


Genital bump caused by the herpes simplex virus

A: It is hard to tell whether the bump on the vulva was genital herpes without seeing it and based solely on the data you provided (had intercourse one month ago, bump that was popped and looks like scar with white in the middle). Genital herpes is an infective disease that is transmitted via sexual intercourse. It is caused by herpes simplex Virus (HSV). It is presented with genital sores like papules (elevated above skin surface and not filled with fluid) or vesicles (filled with fluid). The sores usually appear in clusters and this is the only fact that advocates that it was not genital herpes. However, in order to be sure, you might want to visit a gynecologist for...
