Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease and therefore falls under the STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) and ranks second there.
It is caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV).
Many people carry the virus, but few people get the disease with symptoms.
There are 2 types of HPV, namely:
type HSV 1 (best known for the cold sore)
type HSV 2
Genital herpes is most commonly caused by HSV 2 although nowadays more infections are also seen by HSV 1 are, probably due to oral sex.
The herpes virus does not leave you body, but remains latent and when triggered, it can always flare up again.
For example, due to:
stress and fatigue
What symptoms do you have?
When you are first infected with the virus, the symptoms are often severe; infections that may follow are often milder. Not everyone who is infected gets symptoms.
Pain when urinating or defecating
Burning or tingling sensation
What can you see?
Vesicles or sores that hurt
After about 3 weeks the blisters dry out and the virus appears to be gone, unfortunately this is not the case and the virus will remain in the body.
Is more investigation needed?
A doctor can recognize this condition very well, they can then also prescribe you a treatment that will make the blisters disappear faster.
How do you get rid of it?
In principle, an HSV infection goes away on its own, but there are some remedies that can speed up the process and reduce the burden and pain. Unfortunately, there are no drugs yet that kill the virus.
Apply a drying cream, that way the blisters dry out faster
Starting medications that inhibit the virus within 5 days of the outbreak
Painkillers for the pain
Drink lots of water, water thins the urine which can reduce the pain when urinating
If people have an HSV infection very often (6 or more times a year) the doctor may also give a maintenance dose of the virus-inhibiting medicine.
