– Herpes or Genital Herpes is a kind of virus caused by the Herpes Simplex virus. Herpes is transmitted through contact of mucous covered linings in the vagina or the genital skin and sometimes through the mouth as well. The virus breaks into the human body by entering the linings or the skin through microscopic tears. Once they get inside, the virus travels all the way to the roots, making its way to the spinal cord and settling there permanently.
Herpes is more common in women than in men.
It has been estimated that every 1 out of 4 woman in theU.S.is infected. In women, a herpes outbreak can lead to various conditions with different manifestations but in some cases show no symptoms at all.
It’s easy to detect early signs of illness in women before any outbreak through symptoms such as an itching or burning sensation in the upper leg, buttocks and surrounding areas; urinary pain and difficulty in urinating, swelling etc. Outbreaks of herpes show signs like sores or blisters of different sizes, and can go on to appear on the genitals, anus, buttocks and thighs. Other evidence of the virus’s presence includes unusual vaginal discharges etc. Such symptoms can appear as often as on a monthly basis in women and if effective treatment is not carried out, they keep on recurring regularly.
Today, thanks to development in natural and medical sciences there are effective ways to control herpes (there is no cure) although, it is wisest to work toward prevention in the first place.
One of the most effective alternatives in treating herpes is Herpeset. Herpeset, an all natural genital herpes treatment has a unique delivery system. It is available in the form that can be sprayed under the tongue twice or three times a day. Herpeset has been proven to act faster and more effective than other herpes antiviral medicines.
The makers of Herpeset also claim their product reduces the healing time from 2 weeks to 4-5 days. For more info, please visit http://www.herpeset.com
Another product worth mentioning is Acyclovir. This is the most often prescribed antiviral for Herpes. Acyclovir significantly reduces the extent and duration of symptoms of herpes but has significant side-effects. On the plus side, the antiviral drug hinders the enzyme actions taking place inside the body that are responsible for replication of the herpes virus in the body. On the downside, side effects include headaches, nausea, swelling, sore throat etc. At such times, proper intake of food is a good way to offset those effects.
There are also antiviral, natural supplements on the market which claim to help lower the viral load in one’s body. A Google search can easily be done on these. It’s wise to remember that the Herpes virus has a complicated life cycle and taking antiviral drugs or antiviral supplements can help keep viral activity at the lowest possible levels.
Genital herpes has a lot of non-physical factors that can go along with it. As a matter of fact, genital herpes carries a social stigma and can therefore make you more socially depressed, ashamed, and anxious. Thus, one should seek treatment as soon as possible before accidentally spreading the disease, or experiencing painful outbreaks.
