In the know

Some of the things one should know about herpes!

It’s the last Friday of the month and here is what you need to know about Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV).

  • HSV type 1 commonly causes cold sores but can also cause genital herpes.
  • HSV type 2 is the usual cause of genital herpes, but it can also infect the mouth.

Did you know, that the sores that pop up around the mouth when you have malaria are actually a symptom of herpes?

Well now you do.

Herpes is one of the most common STIs out there, but not many know the signs or how easily it can be contacted

The stigma with herpes and other sexually transmitted infections can cause substantial damage, especially to younger adults that are sexually active. So it is significant for us to understand that there is nothing to be worried about and ashamed of when talking about HSV.

The most important part is to educate ourselves on this matter without entering a state of panic.
