Genital herpes is a viral infection caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV). The disease is contracted during unprotected sexual activity and causes painful sores and blisters on your genitals.
Once you get infected with HSV, the virus stays in your system for life. Treatment focuses on alleviating symptoms of the disease.
There is a possibility of flare-ups happening now and then. Luckily, these flare-ups become less frequent as time passes by.
You can get diagnosed with genital herpes through a consultation with our Mobidoctor physicians. They can also give you prescription medications which can easily be collected from your nearest pharmacy.
Around 80% of people who have this viral infection don’t even know they got the disease. It’s because some people may be asymptomatic. Mild symptoms may appear in some cases, but they aren’t that noticeable to warrant medical attention, so it goes unnoticed and undiagnosed.
Here are the red flags that indicate you have genital herpes:
• Blisters at the buttocks, upper thighs, and genitals. These will eventually burst, and turn into non-scarring sores.
• Painful urination
• Flu-like symptoms
• Vaginal discharge in women
The symptoms may continue to manifest in your body for around 3 weeks.
Herpes Simplex Virus stays in your body for life once you get infected. Occasional flare-ups of the disease are frequent. You may notice a tingling sensation on the genitals when a flare-up is about to begin.
Genital herpes is caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV). It quickly infects you by entering moist body areas such as the mouth, anus, and genitalia. The virus is highly contagious and can spread through unprotected sex.
A partner with blisters or sores may likely affect you better than an asymptomatic one. However, once HSV is already in your system, you can pass it on effectively to others even if you don’t exhibit any symptoms.
Some triggering factors may cause a flare-up of existing genital herpes:
• Weak immune system
• Excessive friction during sex
• Alcohol consumption
• Exposure to too much sunlight
• Unmanaged stress
Remember that once you get infected with HSV, it’s for life. Outbreaks or flare-ups may occur as a result of the triggers mentioned above.
