The Facts About Herpes Simplex 1


Herpes Simplex 1 is a type that is commonly referred to as cold sores. They appear on the face, especially around the lips. Don’t let the location of it fool you though as Herpes Simplex 1 on the face is just the same as what you find on the genitals with Herpes Simplex 2.

In fact, many medical professionals are reporting signs of Herpes Simplex 1 on the genitals. This is believed to be due to the amount of oral sex that takes place. Many people don’t realize that a cold sore is really herpes or that it can be spread to the rest of the body. If you have Herpes Simplex 1 on your lips you shouldn’t kiss anyone else until the sores are completely gone.

It is important to realize that Herpes Simplex 1 is very contagious and that it can be spread to other people. It isn’t just restricted to the face or the genital though. It can be spread to various parts of the body including the mucus membranes, the nose, ears, eyes, and anus. A person can easily spread Herpes Simplex 1 to other areas of their own body as well if they touch them without washing their hands.

Not everyone knows they have Herpes Simplex 1 though because the symptoms are very different for everyone. This is due to the fact that it is a virus, and a virus affects people based on their genes and their immune system. As a result many people continue to spread Herpes Simplex 1 to others because they don’t realize they have it.

There is no cure for Herpes in any form yet but there are some positive results to various types of medications. Some herbal remedies are said to completely destroy Herpes Simplex 1 and 2 but there is no medical data to substantiate such claims. Most people have to be happy with eliminating the pain and dealing with the various symptoms.

Of course the best course of action is to avoid spreading it to other regions of your body or to someone else. Each person needs to be responsible and understand how easily it can be transmitted. If you are going to have sex with someone you owe it to them to tell them that you have herpes. Keep in mind that they may not know it so protect yourself as if they do.
