  • Herpes
  • Herpes
    A sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by the herpes simplex viruses type 1 (HSV-1) or type 2 (HSV-2). Most genital herpes is caused by HSV-2. Most individuals have no or only minimal signs or symptoms from HSV-1 or HSV-2 infection.
  • How common is it?
    Genital HSV-2 infection is more common in women (approximately one out of five women 14 to 49 years of age) than in men (about one out of nine men 14 to 49 years of age).
    Genital herpes infection is common in the United States. Nationwide, 16.2%, or about one out of six, people 14 to 49 years of age have genital HSV-2 infection.
  • How does one get herpes?
    • A person can only get HSV-2 infection during sexual contact with someone who has a genital HSV-2 infection.
    • Transmission can occur from an infected partner who does not have a visible sore and may not know that he or she is infected.
    HSV-1 can cause genital herpes, but it more commonly causes infections of the mouth and lips, so-called “fever blisters.” HSV-1 infection of the genitals can be caused by oral-genital or genital-genital contact with a person who has HSV-1 infection.
  • Symptoms
    The first outbreak usually occurs within two weeks after the virus is transmitted, and the sores typically heal within two to four weeks.
    Other signs and symptoms during the primary episode may include a second crop of sores.
    flu-like symptoms, including fever and swollen glands.
  • Treatment
    There is no treatment that can cure herpes, but antiviral medications can shorten and prevent outbreaks during the period of time the person takes the medication.
  • Prevention
    Abstain from sexual contact, or to be in a long-term mutually monogamous relationship with a partner who has been tested and is known to be uninfected.

    A single shot of ceftriaxone (Rocephin) 125 mg or a single dose of

    Antibiotic treatment
    Azithromycin (Zithromax) 2g in a single dose may be used for
    people who have severe allergic reactions to ceftriaxone, cefixime,
    or penicillin.
    Penicillin used to be the standard treatment, but it is not used any
    longer because it does not cure gonorrhea all the time. The CDC
    also Recommendeds against using a class of antibiotics called
    Fluoroquinolone (ciprofloxacin,ofloxacin, or levofloxacin).

    To prevent spreading use sterile equipment for tattoos, or even sterile equipment for cocaine snorting.
    If infected, prevent alcohol consumption since it will create more damage to the liver.
