Herpes Simplex Virusfrom:
Herpes is a viral disease that mostly affects the mouth and the
genital areas. The Herpes Virus is known as the Herpes Simples
Virus. It has two strains- HSV-1 and HSV-2. HSV-1 is responsible
for oral Herpes and HSV-2 causes genital herpes.
HSV-1 virus is associated with infection on or in the mouth. The
symptoms include lesions or sores on the lips and mouth. Other
symptoms include swollen gums and also flu-like symptoms
including high fever. Since gums and the mouth are infected, the
affected persons find difficulty in eating. Also, in most cases
the tongue may develop a white coating.
HSV-1 is widely prevalent amongst children. The symptoms of this
disease are not easily identifiable. People usually don't
associate blisters or sores with Herpes. As a result, they are
not even aware that they are suffering from the disease. So,
infected children, when they interact with other children,
either in school or while playing, unintentionally spread the
disease because the virus spreads through physical contact.
The HSV-2 Virus is responsible for causing genital herpes. The
symptoms of this disease are blisters that appear around the
genital areas. These blisters break and cause sores, which in
turn contain the HSV-2 strain. These sores release the virus
causing genital herpes.
Genital Herpes can be very painful and dangerous if the person
is an expectant mother. In the case of a primary attack, chances
of passing the virus to the unborn infant are high. If this
happens, it can prove fatal for the baby. But this risk is less
if the attack is secondary, because in that case the mother's
immune system has usually built up the defense to deal with the
The first attack is called the primary episode. After this
episode subsides, the virus remains dormant in the nearby
nerves, and periodically remerges to cause further attacks. With
proper precaution and treatment, the frequency and the severity
of the attacks decrease because the immune system gradually
builds up the anti-bodies to counteract the disease.
