Herpes labialis treatment

Herpes labialis is a kind of fine rash which often appears on the lips or nose, often called fever blisters.

Once infected by herpes a person may become the carrier of this disease for a life period.

The infectious agent of herpes virus is a specific intracellular parasite. The term “herpes” when translated from the Greek means “creeping”. That means herpes infects human cells by placing its gene unit into them. Therefore, by division of cells the virus is being transmitted to other cells with the whole hereditary information. Doctors state it is precisely the reason for that a man who was infected with the virus will never get rid of him.
