Several diseases are classified as "infectious" as they are caused by infective agents (commonly known as germs) which enter the body. Herpes is one such disease. People suffering from this disease, no matter how long, can easily recover with the proper treatment program.
There are two types of herpes – herpes simplex and herpes zoster. Herpes simplex is further distinguished as any of the following: primary, recurrent, genital, or cold sore. In primary herpes simplex, the illness occurs when the particular virus that causes herpes first makes its way into the tissues of a person susceptible to it. Small blisters may become evident on the tissues of one eye, on the mouth and gums, or even on the genitals. Primary herpes simplex may present no symptoms at all and it can continue without even being noticed. A reactivation of the virus, which remained quiescent since it first entered the tissues, can cause subsequent manifestations. This is known as recurrent herpes simplex. Certain circumstances may cause the reactivation of the latent virus. Examples are emotional stress and excessive exposure to sunlight.
The type I virus is known to cause herpes simplex which manifests on the lips and face. Commonly known as "cold sores" or "fever blisters," the lesions which appear around the mouth or on the lips first consist of tiny fluid-filled pouches. Later, these turn into yellowish scabs. On the other hand, the type II virus causes herpes simplex infection which affects the genitalia. This infection is classified as a venereal disease and is actually the most common disease of this class, with the exception of gonorrhea.
Herpes Zoster (shingles) is a harshly painful virus disease involving the nerve fibers and the skin overlying them. This disease is characterized by assemblages of small blisters on inflamed skin areas. The skin eruption emerges with such suddenness, breaking out in crops. Each ensuing crop tends to settle closer to the end of the affected nerve fiber. The blisters then dry and turn into scabs after about a couple of weeks. Scars often remain once the scabs fall off. Sometimes, the blisters become pimple-like elevations (with pus) before they dry. In harsher cases, the blisters may turn into spots of dead tissues.
Herpes simplex, like any other infection, may be treated with antibiotics. For herpes zoster, temporary relief may come in the form of either an electric heating pad or compresses applied to the painful skin area. But did you know that there is a specific program that is designed to cure your herpes permanently regardless of how long you have been suffering from it?
