13, November 2014

Genital herpes is caused by HSV 1 or HSV 2. These viruses may or may not cause you symptoms. Generally patients who discover they have herpes do so after they develop symptoms such as genital sores, burning on urination, and genital irritation. There is a wide spectrum of clinical presentations in people who have genital herpes ranging from those who carry it asymptomatically to those who get regular outbreaks and require viral suppressive therapy.  A diagnosis of genital herpes can be quite upsetting for some people but it is important that you receive the correct diagnosis, information and treatment.  The sexual health specialists at the Himerus Health are experts in this area and can provide all the care you may need.
