Were you looking for information about Genital Herpes? Gential herpes is a common misspelling of genital herpes.
Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease that occurs through direct skin-to-skin or mucous membrane contact. During a herpes outbreak, blisters usually appear around the genitals or rectum before turning into open sores.
Once you have the virus, it stays in your body, and there is a chance that you will have outbreaks. Although there is no cure for genital herpes, several medications are available to help reduce symptoms and prevent outbreaks from occurring. The infection can stay in the body indefinitely, but the number of outbreaks tends to decrease over a period of years.
