21 Sep Genital Herpes

genital herpesGenital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease borne of the herpes simplex virus type 1 (usually associated with oral infection) and type 2 (usually genital). Genital herpes is contracted most often by having sex with someone who has the condition whether they have visible sores or not. Many people who have genital herpes experience either no symptoms or very mild ones that can be mistaken for other skin conditions. Because of this many people with genital herpes are unaware of their infection and can unwittingly spread it to others. There are no cures for oral or genital herpes, but treatments exist that can help people with herpes limit the number of outbreaks they have.

“Herpes viruses are a leading cause of human viral disease, second only to influenza and common colds. They cause overt cold sores and chickenpox, or they may remain latent for many years to be reactivated in later life, as in shingles.

The name herpes is derived from the Greek word herpein which means to creep. This reflects the spreading or creeping nature of the skin lesions caused by many herpes viruses.

There are 25 types of herpes viruses. Six types cause medical problems in humans.

Herpes simplex 1 and 2 can infect both humans and other animals, but only humans show the blisters typical of the disease. The hallmark of herpes its ability to infect epithelial mucosal cells or lymphocytes. The virus then travels up peripheral nerves to a nucleated neurone where it may stay for years and be followed by reactivation.

The site of the initial infection is usually the oral or genital mucosa, depending on the way in which the person acquires therpes. It is often noted that HSV-1 infects above the waist and HSV-2 infects below the waist, but either version of herpes can infect at either locale, and this reflects the mode of transmission rather than any intrinsic property of the virus. Both types of herpes can also persistently infect macrophages and lymphocytes.”

Genital herpes often appears within 4-5 days after sexual exposure to herpes. Some of the common symptoms include pain, itching, and burning. Other signs may include headaches, muscle pain, and swollen and enlarged lymph nodes.

Cures are unavailable for any type of herpes. Though research for cures has been extensive, there has not been any significant developments among the scientific community for truly killing the virus. Many remedies exist however that provide effective treatment for herpes symptoms. Treatment can vary from natural remedies to prescription treatment, but effective remedies are directly relative to the treatment’s antiviral capabilities. Treatment “cures” away sores by suppressing herpes in the nerve root where it subsides; topical remedies are usually not strong enough to do anything more than penetrate the skin. In other words, the best treatment you can find will come in pill form, and remedies the source of the herpes outbreak – the nerve root.

Until proper cures are developed, remedies are the only source of oral or genital herpes treatment and relief.

13 Sep What You Can Do About A Herpes Cold Sore

herpes virus cold soreA herpes cold sore, often called a fever blister, is a lesion or bump in or around the mouth caused by the herpes simplex virus. While typically a result of a herpes simplex type 1 infection, these lesions can also be caused by HSV 2 (genital herpes). A fever blister is not usually a sexually transmitted disease, but can be transmitted to the mouth through oral-to-genital contact with an infected person.

12 Sep Are Cold Sores Contagious?

are cold sores contagious?

Considering that more than half of the US population is infected with facial herpes, it is no wonder people everywhere are asking themselves, “Are cold sores contagious?” The answer to this question is simple; all herpes lesions are extremely contagious and can easily be spread to a sexual partner’s genitals or face. (It is even possible to have a herpes lesion on the eye.)

While normally referred to as cold sores, herpes simplex virus type 1 can also be caused by herpes simplex type-2 — but while genital herpes is considered a sexually transmitted disease, facial herpes (herpes labialis) is not.

29 Aug Herpes Simplex Vaccine Information

Herpes VaccineWhile there are still no herpes cures available, new advances in medicine may make it possible for infected individuals to stop herpes sores and even reduce the risk of transmitting herpes to others. The Center for Clinical Studies in Houston is current conducting trials on a new vaccine that may be able to boost immunity to herpes and in turn suppress outbreaks.

Current herpes remedies on the market can effectively do the same thing. They are able to boost the immune system in order to suppress herpes within the infected cells. These types of alternatives to dangerous prescription drug remedies are extremely safe and result in no unwanted side-effects.

The Center for Clinical Studies’ Herpes Simplex Vaccine Experiment

“There is new hope for people who suffer from genital herpes. A new vaccine is being tested in Houston.

If it works, it could stop the outbreaks and literally put the herpes virus in remission.

Patients get a series of three shots in this blinded study, and they aren’t told if they got the treatment or not.

“It’s based on studies of people who were exposed to the virus and didn’t get infected and so the idea is these three shots will boost the immunity such that people don’t have outbreaks in the future,” said Dr. Stephen Tyring with the vaccine study.

And Dr. Tyring says researchers believe it may also prevent people from spreading the virus.”

Original story here.

The discovery of oral and genital herpes cures would not just be important to infected individuals and their sexual partners, but would benefit society in general. This type of injection would eliminate the need for expensive daily prescription herpes treatment and could lead to other important medical innovations as well.

Of course, natural “cures” for oral and genital herpes offer faster, cheaper, safer, and better over-all treatment than prescription remedies because of their lack of dangerous side effects. They offer the benefits of a boosted immune system comparable to the vaccination being tested in Houston without the pain of injections, either.

Until real cures that kill herpes labialis and genital herpes at the nerve root are created, natural herpes remedies are the best option to prevent cold sores, ward off viral shedding (infecting other when you don’t have active sores), and boost the healing time of lesions.

Additionally, be aware that many retailers make claims that their remedies for oral and genital herpes are true cures. Do not be deceived. If cures were created for oral or genital herpes, such treatment would be broadcasted world-wide. If Herpes Treatment Site is not reporting on so-called “cures,” then don’t bother with them at all!

19 Jul What is HSV 2 Virus?

hsv 2 virusThe herpes simplex virus type 2, otherwise known as the genital herpes, is a sexually transmitted disease that typically causes lesions around the genital region. The disease can be transmitted to others even during times when no outbreak is present — this is one of the reasons so many people are currently infected. Though there is no herpes cure, herpes positive individuals have many oral and genital herpes remedies they can choose from including prescription medications, topical remedies for herpes as well as herbal supplements. But while there numerous alternatives, not all products are equally as effective or safe. Topical “cures” can damage the integrity of the skin and only heal current outbreaks while drugs often lead to a number of side-effects.

13 Jul You Can Control Herpes

control herpesOnce someone has contracted oral or genital herpes, herpes stays with him or her for life. Following the initial outbreak, herpes moves from the skin cells into the nerve cells where it remains permanently. To control oral and genital herpes, users often turn to antiviral herpes “cures” which can keep herpes dormant within the cells. Natural herpes remedies are often able to stop herpes outbreaks permanently, but in the event a blister does appear, the lesion heals much faster and is much less severe. Though the results are incredible, these remedies are not herpes cures. They can stop outbreaks from occurring by keeping herpes dormant, but the herpes itself cannot be killed without true cures.In addition to using herbal herpes remedies, an individual can use ice to relieve pain during an outbreak. Many people also find relief by washing their sores with soap and warm water.
