Description of the Herpes Simplex Virux (see herpes photos)
The Herpes simplex virus can be treated with daily herpes suppression theropy, but there is no known cure. Symptoms normally appear up to 14 days after being infected, which include, tingling, fever, itching, pain and finally the development of small clear blisters. This disease lies dormant in nerve cells, but it may be reactivated by stress, poor diet (eating foods high in arginine) or a weak imune system. It is believed to be more contagious during active periods when blisters are present, however, it can be transmitted person-to-person at any time.
Individules who are taking drugs that suppress the body's immune system (for example, cancer or organ transplant patients) are at a hightened risk of contracting herpes because their immune systems are in a weakened state. There are several natural herpes products, that seem to totally stop or greatly reduce the reoccurance of herpes outbreaks, without the side effects found in other antiviral drugs..
The majority of people who've been infected with HSV never know they have the disease because they have no signs or symptoms. The signs and symptoms of HSV can be so mild they go unnoticed. The first outbreak is generally the worst, and some people never experience a second outbreak. Other people, however, can experience outbreaks as long as 40 years after the initial outbreak.
