For those who are infected with genital herpes, it is understandably that you will most likely express feelings of anger and resentment against your sexual partner who may be responsible for your infection.However, it is important to point out that your partner may not know he or she has herpes since symptoms of herpes may not show up on everyone.They are transmitted by direct contact with body fluids or lesions of an infected individual.Transmission may still occur when symptoms are not present.
What the statistics tell us is herpes, especially oral herpes (HSV-1) is actually quite a common disease.
Taking the antiviral drugs acyclovir (Zovirax), Valtrex, and Famvir can make symptoms appear less often and make them less severe.
There is some evidence that these drugs also may protect against transmission. Unless scientists find one in the future, you will always have the virus.
Genital herpes, often simply known as herpes, may have minimal symptoms or form blisters that break open and result in small ulcers. Tingling or shooting pains may occur before the blisters appear.
Herpes cycles between periods of active disease followed by periods without symptoms.
