23 Jun HSV 1 Treatment
Whether you are seeking out an HSV 2 or HSV 1 treatment, there are a number of alternatives out there that are safer and more effective than herpes medications. These all-natural products are made using ingredients found in nature that have been documented to suppress and promote the healing of the herpes simplex virus.
Most cold sores (also known as fever blisters) are caused by an HSV 1 infection, but can be instigated by HSV 2 as well. And while most often known for promoting lesions, HSV 1 can lead to other herpes symptoms and signs.
HSV 1 Symptoms Include:
- swollen lymph nodes,
- irritability, and
- muscle aches.
HSV 1 Treatment & Facts
“What’s a Cold Sore?
Cold sores, which are small and somewhat painful blisters that usually show up on or around a person’s lips, are caused by herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1). But they don’t just show up on the lips. They can sometimes be inside the mouth, on the face, or even inside or on the nose. These places are the most common, but sores can appear anywhere on the body, including the genital area.
Genital herpes isn’t typically caused by HSV-1; it’s caused by another type of the herpes simplex virus called herpes simplex virus-2 (HSV-2) and is spread by sexual contact. But even though HSV-1 typically causes sores around the mouth and HSV-2 causes genital sores, these viruses can cause sores in either place.
HSV-1 is very common — if you have it, chances are you picked it up when you were a kid. Most people who are infected with the herpes simplex virus got it during their preschool years, most likely from close contact with someone who has it or getting kissed by an adult with the virus.
Although a person who has HSV-1 doesn’t always have sores, the virus stays in the body and there’s no permanent cure.”
