Herpes. HSV-1 and HSV-2
Sexually transmitted disease (STDs) are scary enough but when you are told that they can’t be cured they can scare the panties off you, pardon the pun. Herpes is one such infection. There are two types of Herpes simplex viruses: Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV- 1) and Herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV- 2). HSV- 1 is the more common of the two viruses and it is associated with mouth, lips and face infections. HSV- 2 is usually transmitted sexually and causes genital herpes.
These two strains of the herpes virus are the ones that most people are aware of. However there is another form of infection of the HSV called herpetic whitlow which is a finger infection. This mostly affects medical practitioners and health care providers exposed to saliva while conducting check ups or during procedures. Young kids may also get affected by it.
What are the Symptoms of Herpes?
Herpes simplex 1 often causes lesions or sores around the mouth and lips which are sometimes called cold sores or causes an infection of the eye particularly the cornea and conjunctiva. It can also cause genital herpes although this is uncommon. HSV- 2 is usually characterized by genital herpes with sores around the rectum meaning the butt area or genitals. The HSV 1 is spread through oral secretions or skin sores and one can be infected through kissing and sharing objects like eating utensils and toothbrushes. HSV- 2 can only be spread by sexual contact with an infected person. The sores are a clear sign to get checked but the virus can be spread even in the absence of these sores. Pregnant should definitely get checked out as they can pass the herpes to their baby in childbirth and that is not what people usually call the gift of birth. For people who have had a run in with this vicious virus they will have heard from the doctors that there is no cure. The kicker is usually being told that the lucky part is that it stays dormant in your body.
This is not something ever wants to hear because having the virus eliminated preferably without using a nuke on the body’s systems would be more appreciated. Now conventional medicines do not offer a cure for herpes just a way to rid of you the sores and pain and itching if any. The ultimate Herpes protocol does give a comprehensive guide on how to treat herpes and kick its out of your galaxy. It does this by providing a what, when, how and why run-down that is easy to follow and uses mother nature’s provisions to do so.
You see when you just let the herpes simplex virus sit and simmer and go on an interior decoration spree in your body it will act as the butler for other diseases and general illness, fatigue, menstruation, trauma to your genitals (read sexual activity), immunosuppression and physical and emotional stress will have it flaring up and reminding you that your body is not really under your control.
Doctors will prescribe Valtrex, Zovirax or acyclovir and famvir all which could have side effects that will leave you in the trenches physically and emotionally. However the home remedies for herpes recommended will do the trick of alleviating your discomfort and work towards getting you to that magical herpes free land.
