Herpes and Types of Herpes:
Herpes is an infection caused by the virus called herpes simplex. It appears on the surface of the skin and mucous membranes in the form of small bubbles and painful. There are two types of this virus :
-Virus type 1, which is manifested by an infection of the lips and face and is called oral herpes. It is transmitted through saliva or kissing and contaminated food and drink. It can be transmitted through sneezing and coughing. —-Cannon 2 virus manifests itself by damaging the lining of the genitals and is transmitted through sexual contact, so it is called genital herpes.
Both of the types of this virus is very infectious and appears 1 to 2 weeks after contact with an infected person. Most people catch the virus type 1 until they turn 20 years. This type of virus is contagious even when there are no symptoms from it.
There are three stages of the emergence of this symptom:
- the early stage of infection
- latent stage
- phase of repetition
The most frequent symptoms are manifest through: itching and skin rashes, sores on the lips, genital changes, mild fever, bubbles and increase the lymph nodes in the neck and groin. Manifested yellow membrane disappears within 5 to 14 days. Infection Type 2 again is manifested by the appearance of bubbles in the genital area. These symptoms can last for five to six weeks.
In some cases, do not require any treatment because the infection is mild and then used antiseptics for mouthwash. But do not use any medications or liquids that contain alcohol. Instead you can gently rinse the affected area with water or lotions for dry skin.
We need to explain the changes of skin pass on their own in 6 to 10 days, but once you are infected, the virus remains in you throughout life and can be a repeat of this infection. For someone it doesn’t appear ever, for someone appears to five times a year. This infection occurs in the most sun exposure experienced or stress.
