Were you looking for information about Genital Herpes? Genitial herpes is a common misspelling of genital herpes.
Genital herpes is an incurable sexually transmitted disease that typically affects the genitals, rectum, or buttocks. During an outbreak, blisters may form on or around the genitals or rectum. Although the infection can stay in the body indefinitely, the number of herpes outbreaks tends to decrease over the years. A number of medications are available to help reduce symptoms and prevent future outbreaks from occurring.
Having genital herpes may increase the risk of spreading or contracting other sexually transmitted diseases. Herpes infection of the eye is also possible, which can result in serious eye disease or blindness. For pregnant women with genital herpes, complications may occur in the baby, such as brain, skin, or eye problems.
