Some Facts About The Herpes STD

Posted on 01 March 2011

Herpies is a actually spelled “Herpes” and this STD (sexually transmitted disease) is a very common virus that can lay dormant for months or even years. There are two main types known as type 1 (HSV-1) and type 2 (HSV-2).

HSV-2 Is The Most Common

Most cases of herpies are caused by the type 2. Many people don’t even know they have the virus but when symptoms do surface they typically appear in the form of one or more sores on or around the genitals or rectum. The blisters then pop and leave a painful sore that is sensitive to contact. It may take a few weeks for the sore to heal.

Frequency of The Herpies Virus

After the initial outbreak another one usually follows in a matter of weeks but it usually isn’t as bad as the first outbreak and doesn’t last as long. This pattern can go on indefinitely if no treatment or behavior changes take place.
