Herpes disease |Causes, Symptoms, Prevention and Treatment|

Herpes results from infection with the herpes simplex virus (HSV). It causes sores or blisters to form in or around the mouth or genitals, as well as other symptoms.

There are two types of HSV:

HSV-1 causes oral herpes, which usually affects the mouth and surrounding skin.
HSV-2 causes genital herpes, which is usually sexually transmitted.

People who develop symptoms of herpes may first experience tingling, itching, or burning, then notice sores or blisters forming around the mouth or genitals.

Infection can occur in the following ways:

having vaginal or anal sex without using barrier protection, such as a condom
sharing sex toys
having any other oral or genital contact with a person who has herpes
