Welcome to the Herpes Channel

Herpes, whether genital herpes or cold sores (also known as fever blisters) are caused by an infection with the herpes simplex virus. Unfortunately, they are a common condition. Genital herpes, for example, affects more than one in five adolescents and adults. Cold sores generally occur outside the mouth on the lips, chin, or cheeks. With genital herpes, tender ulcers will generally appear around the genitals or rectum. The herpes virus can be spread by direct contact with the sore or indirect contact through sharing items such as utensils, towels, or drinks. While there is no cure, many medicines are available to treat the symptoms and to help prevent and shorten outbreaks.
