What is herpes?
The Herpes Virus is a common recurrent skin condition; most infections are unrecognized, undiagnosed and not treated.
Herpes Virus is caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). (see herpes pictures)
This virus family includes Epstein-Barr virus (the cause of mono) and the varicella zoster virus (the cause of chicken pox and shingles).
Although there are several viruses in the herpesvirus family, each is a separate individual virus. Having any one virus does not mean you will have any of the others.
HSV can cause oral herpes (HSV1) (cold sores or fever blisters on the mouth or facial area) see mouth herpes pictures as well as genital herpes (HSV2) similar symptoms in the genital region). see genital herpes pictures
There are two types of herpes simplex: herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2).
The majority of mouth herpes cases are caused by HSV-1 and the majority of genital herpes cases are caused by HSV-2; however, type-1 or type-2 can occur in either the genital or oral area.
