Herpes simplex virus

The herpes simplex virus is known in two types named: Virus 1 of the herpes, so called HSV-1, and the herpes simplex Virus 2, which is known also as HSV-2. Though the origin of these two types looks almost the same at first glance, in fact virus HSV-1 pertains to cold sores or fever blisters while virus HSV-2 is refered to as genital herpes.

One can easily notice HSV-1 in the mouth area of a patient and it is usually transmitted through the saliva of an afflicted person. At the same time HSV-2 virus is to be found in the genitals of both males and females, who might be contaminated with the herpes. People acquire it via sexual contact with a contaminated person, i.e. the one having the HSV-2 disease at the moment. Important! In both cases of simplex virus, herpes needs to be cured and it is necessary to do it ASAP.

herpes virus treatment

The possible herpes virus treatment involves a number of antiviral drugs produced by different medical firms and sometimes known as different brands such as Valacyclovir or Famcyclovir, or Acyclovir, especially during acute outbreaks.

Acyclovir is supposed to be given during the initial period of outbreak for herpes virus treatment and can reduce the reproduction ability of the virus and prevent its spreading throughout the body. In other words it lessens the chance of its recurrence as subsequent outbreaks. Thus, to be more effective in the curing process remedy should immediately be taken, starting from the moment the first sore appears. In case we have one of the sexual partners infected, he or she must stop sexual contacts with the other partner untill the process of combating the disease is completely over.

In terms of predicted effect both Famcyclovir and Valacyclovir have similar effeciency in preventing the herpes virus infection. When an ill person suffers from frequent recurrent outbreaks it is good to take suppressive therapy or any other long-term drug in accordance with current needs. Suppressive therapy is seen as the one to reduce the outbreaks by around 80 percent and the viral degradation by as much as 90 percent.

The complex approach towards the curing process includes the use of topical antibiotic ointments so that secondary bacterial infections will be also prevented. It is crucial to remember the fact that in duration of genital herpes outbreak the patient might have better relief by following some steps:

  • by wearing loose clothes which are recommended in order to avoid accumulation of heat and moisture which can hamper the treatment;
  • by avoiding extreme heat or sunlight since the patient might have the tend to sweat profusely and secret moisture;
  • have clean sore area kept dry since moisture is conducive to the proliferation of the virus;
  • cool down or have the water slightly warm to be placed on the area with sores for a period of time to relieve the itchiness and discomfort;
  • by NOT using douches, deodorants or sprays & perfumed stuff since it they may only interact and lessen the effectiveness of the drug;
  • in case of pain try Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen, or Aspirin;
  • try to refrain from touching the sores to avoid further contamination or infection;
  • in case you by some reason had touched the sores wash your hands ASAP in order to avoid infection spread among your mates and other people.

How to prevent HSV-2 herpes?

If you are having too many sexual contacts without using hygiene rules, which are in fact simple, you belong to a risk group then. We are not willing to interfere in your private lifeб but it would be better to reduce the number of your sexual contactsб so you don\\’ t have to worry long about herpes simplex cures. At the same time if there is already a tingling or itching sensation try to refrain from having intimate contact and sexual intercourse to avoid virus spread.

Well, sometimes one may have the absence of evident symptoms or sores, but the option of contracting the herpes virus still exists if sex is not safe. Thus, the usage of condoms is strongly recommended while you are contacting a person who may belong to a risk group. You\\’ d better avoid sharing the clothes or towels etc with anybody. Important! In case you have touched the sores, do not touch the skin of other people but immediately wash your hands with soap thoroughly.

Symptoms of herpes

It looks like when herpes virus comes the overall situation might be compared with a disaster since it penetrates into the skin cells and reproduces itself starting to multiply rapidly by making the skin getting red and more sensitive than usually. Blisters or bumps appear on the affected area with the blisters first opening, then healing with the regeneration of new skin tissue.

How does the virus appear?

Once you have felt exposed to the virus via direct skin-to-skin contact, despite the fact whether you are a male or female or even a kid, it is by average about from a couple of days and up to two weeks before your first episode of symptoms of herpes will “crop up”. While the first outbreak of herpes is usually perceived as one of the worst troubles you may experience (in accordance to statistics it raise up to 60% of those infected with the virus), people are not to take care about the causes. Hence, even if you do not experience any visible symptoms the virus is still penetrating you and will let you know about it’s activity somewhat later on.

What is herpes?

In fact, herpes is the medical name for a certain group of similar viruses. The group includes so called Varicella-Zoster virus, which produces a kind of chicken pox or sometimes the virus causes infectious mononucleosis. The version called Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is usually a consequence of infections that in everyday life effect common people like in your neighborhood or people frequently socializing, having defective immune systems. At the same time herpes virus called HSV causes genital and oral infections more frequently even via short term close contact (skin to skin). Thus, the infection by species of HSV are more common in Europe, Middle East and USA.

When herpes virus infects you it commonly develops in three stages:

  • Primary infection, i.e. the virus penetrates your skin or mucous membrane and enters the reproduction stage. Within this period the oral sores and other symptoms such as fever blisters are developing, making a lot of inconvenience.
  • The virus more frequently is supposed not to cause any severe sores and symptoms. One may not know that you have it. This is to be called asymptomatic infection.
  • Asymptomatic infection occurs twice as often as the disease with symptoms.
