Let’s learn more on what is herpes before we get further. Herpes is the name of a type of viruses that trigger unpleasant blisters and sores. One kind of herpes (herpes simplex virus or HSV) triggers both fever blisters around the mouth and genital herpes (herpes around the sexual body organs). Herpes zoster is an additional kind of herpes, and it triggers chickenpox and shingles.
There are 2 subtypes of herpes simplex viruses. The first kind is herpes simplex kind 1 (or HSV-1). The other would be herpes simplex type 2 (or HSV-2), occurs most often on or near the sex organs and is sometimes called “genital herpes.” Herpes is spread out by close individual contact, such as kissing and genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection,or “STI”. This is a simple explanation on what is herpes. You will find more info in future post.
