What Is Herpes

Herpes is a viral infection that is caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). There are two types of HSV: HSV-1 and HSV-2.


HSV-1 is typically associated with oral herpes. Symptoms are usually mild and include cold sores around the mouth or nose. However, HSV-I can also cause genital herpes. It can be spread through kissing or sharing objects such as utensils, razors, or towels.


HSV-2 is typically associated with genital herpes. When it’s active, it travels to the surface of the infected area and makes copies of itself. This is called shedding. It is during this time that the virus can rub off onto another person. Then the virus travels back down the nerve, where it lies dormant for a while. The virus can remain dormant for months or even years, but eventually, it will become active again, and the cycle will repeat itself.


There is no cure for herpes, but there are treatments that can help to control the symptoms. Understanding how the virus behaves is important for managing its impact on your health. If you have been diagnosed with herpes, it is important to talk to your doctor about your treatment options. SafeLabCentre offers a variety of services that can help you to cope with your diagnosis and reduce your risk of transmitting the virus to others.

Who Gets Herpes

Anyone can get herpes, but it is more common in certain groups of people. Older people who have multiple sexual partners or who engage in unprotected sex are at a higher risk of getting the virus.


Herpes is a virus that is incredibly common yet often goes undiagnosed. According to experts, anywhere from 50% to 80% of adults in the US have oral herpes, which is caused by the HSV-1 virus. Genital herpes, caused by the HSV-2 virus, affects an estimated one in five people aged 12 and up. 


However, as many as 90% of those who are infected don’t know it. Women are slightly more likely to be infected than men, with one in four women compared to one in five men being affected. 


One reason for this may be that the virus can more easily infect a woman’s genitals. The herpes virus is spread through skin-to-skin contact, and the thinness of a woman’s genital skin makes it more susceptible to infection.

How Is Herpes Spread

Herpes is a virus that is most commonly spread through sexual contact. The virus can be present in both active and inactive forms, and it can be passed even if there are no visible symptoms.


Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) is a highly contagious virus that is typically spread through contact with infected saliva. The virus can be passed from person to person through close contacts, such as kissing or sharing utensils, and it can also be transmitted through contact with contaminated surfaces. 


HSV-1 is also sometimes transmitted during oral sex when the virus comes into contact with the mucous membranes of the genitals. In these cases, it is referred to as genital herpes. Genital herpes is a serious condition that can cause painful sores and other symptoms. 


HSV-2 is most often passed through vaginal or anal sex, but it can also be transmitted through oral sex. The virus enters the body through small cuts or breaks in the skin, and it quickly begins to replicate. In addition, HSV-2 can be spread to newborn babies during childbirth.


While there is no cure for HSV-2, antiviral medications can help to reduce the severity of symptoms and shorten the duration of outbreaks. In addition, taking steps to reduce stress and boost immunity can help to prevent HSV-2 from becoming active.

Symptoms of Herpes 

There are some common symptoms associated with the herpes virus. It is important to remember that not everyone who has the virus will experience these symptoms and that they can vary in severity from person to person. The most common symptoms are:


  • Blister or multiple blisters on or around the mouth, genitals, or rectum
  • When blisters break open, they leave behind sores that can be painful, itchy, or produce a burning sensation.
  • Skin irritation like insect bites, ingrown hairs, or pimples
  • Fever,
  • Muscle aches and pains,
  • Joint pain,
  • Fatigue,
  • Swollen lymph nodes,
  • Headache,
  • Sore throat,
  • Ulcers in the mouth or on the genitals.
