What is Herpes ?

Herpes is a viral infection caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). 

There are two types of herpes viruses :-

  • HSV-1

  • HSV-2

HSV-1 usually causes cold sores or fever blisters on or around the mouth, while HSV-2 typically causes genital herpes. 

Symptoms of herpes include small blisters or sores that may be painful, itching, or burning sensation, and may appear in clusters. Other symptoms may include fever, headache, muscle aches, and swollen lymph nodes.

Herpes is a highly contagious infection that can be transmitted through contact with an infected person’s skin, mucous membranes, or bodily fluids.

What can you do about it ?

There are several derma-based treatments that can help manage the symptoms of herpes:

  • Topical and oral antiviral medications 
  • Cold compresses: Applying a cold, damp compress to the affected area can help to reduce inflammation and relieve pain and itching.
  • Immune-boosting supplements: Supplements containing vitamins C, E, and zinc, as well as echinacea, can help to boost the immune system and reduce the risk of herpes outbreaks.

It is important to consult with a qualified dermatologist or healthcare provider before using any of these treatments.
