    Post Resources for Understanding the Herpes Virus

    Herpes, just like any virus, can be managed.
    (Infidelity and deceit are a completely different issue that can be discussed on a different board topic.)

    Herpes is a common skin borne virus that anyone can acquire at any age, on any part of the body.

    Herpes is not limited to the mouth or genitals.

    Not all stages are contagious, and some stages may not even be noticed.

    The stigma is that when it is found on or near genital organs it gets called a Sexually Transmitted Disease. Herpes is not only spread by sexual contact or by an innocent kiss. It can remain dormant for years. It is still just a virus, in spite of the stigma and discomfort.

    A Helpful Resource -

    Best Virus Prevention -
    • Keep your immune system up. Eat a healthy, balanced diet.
    • Get enough rest.
    • Avoid overloading the body with refined sugars, alcohol, chemically altered oils, etc.

    When you know you have an outbreak -
    • Practice safety as much as possible.
    • Don't knowingly engage in kissing, or sexual activity while you have an outbreak.
    • Wait until the lesions heal.

    Post Herpes facts

    In replying to posts, do not post a value judgment on anyone's morality. It is is not the purpose of this website.

    Myth: Herpes "cold sores" on the mouth are not the same as genital herpes.

    Fact: Cold sores on the mouth or face are caused by HSV-1 and are commonly transmitted to the genitals (causing genital herpes) through oral to genital sex. Up to 40% of genital herpes is caused by HSV-1

    Occasionally one partner in a long term relationship may develop symptoms of herpes for the first time. Often this is due to one or both of the partners being carriers of HSV and not knowing it. It does not necessarily imply recent transmission from someone outside the relationship.

    Herpes simplex is no different to other herpes viruses: all of us have at least three of them. Even if you have not had symptomatic disease, well over 90% of the adult population is infected with the herpes simplex virus. And most of us get human herpes virus (HHV) 6 and 7 by the time we are aged two years.
