Summary of Herpes

Herpes is a common virus that can cause various symptoms and complications. People must be educated about herpes to understand the risks, recognize the signs and symptoms, and know when to seek medical attention.

Two different types of viruses cause herpes: HSV-1 and HSV-2. Both types can cause sores or blisters around the mouth (oral herpes) or genitals (genital herpes). Genital herpes is more commonly associated with HSV-2, but either type can cause genital infections.

People need to be aware of the risks associated with herpes, such as passing it on to sexual partners, developing recurrent outbreaks, and having an increased risk of HIV infection if exposed to the virus. People should also be aware of the signs and symptoms of herpes so they can identify them early on and seek treatment if necessary.

Getting tested for herpes is also important to get an accurate diagnosis and start treatment immediately. STDcheck.com offers fast, confidential testing for both types of herpes so individuals can get tested quickly and easily.

By being educated on herpes, people can make informed decisions about their health care and protect themselves from potential complications related to this virus.
