Genital herpes s

By angelabambala • a week ago • 635 views • 201 comments

Genital herpes is a common s3xually transmitted infection caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). s3xual contact is the primary way that the virus spreads. After the initial infection, the virus lies dormant in your body and can reactivate several times a year.

Genital herpes can cause pain, itching and sores in your genital area. But you may have no signs or symptoms of genital herpes. If infected, you can be contagious even if you have no visible sores.

# Symptoms

Most people infected with HSV don't know they have it because they don't have any signs or symptoms or because their signs and symptoms are so mild.

When present, symptoms may begin about two to 12 days after exposure to the virus. If you experience symptoms of genital herpes, they may include:

# Pain_or_itching . You may experience pain and tenderness in your genital area until the infection clears.

# Small_red_bumps or #tiny_white_blis

ters . These may appear a few days to a few weeks after infection.

# Ulcers. These may form when blisters rupture and ooze or bleed. Ulcers may make it painful to urinate.

# Scabs . Skin will crust over and form scabs as ulcers heal.

During an initial outbreak, you may have flu-like signs and symptoms such as swollen lymph nodes in your groin, headache, muscle aches and fever.

# Differences_in_symptom_location

Sores appear where the infection entered your body. You can spread the infection by touching a sore and then rubbing or scratching another area of your body, including your eyes.

# Men_and_women can develop sores on the:

Buttocks and thighs

Anus

Mouth

Urethra (the tube that allows urine to drain from the bladder to the outside)

# Women can also develop sores in or on the:

Vaginal area

External genitals

Cervix
