Herpes Simplex Infections (Patient Counselling Guide)

05 Jun 2020
Herpes simplex infections are viral infections characterized by small, irritating, painful, fluid-filled blisters on the skin. They are caused by Herpes simplex virus (HSV) and are very contagious especially when active lesions are apparent. Herpes simplex infections often last for 2 weeks and disappear afterwards. However, a person previously infected can transmit the disease as a carrier and may experience recurrent infections as the virus becomes latent within the nervous system after initial infection. Factors contributing to recurrence include overexposure to sunlight, fever, physical or emotional stress, fatigue, menstruation, illnesses, skin irritation, surgery, immunosuppression, and vigorous sexual intercourse. It is also possible for an infected pregnant woman to transmit the virus to her offspring as the child passes through the birth canal.
