Genital Herpes - Natural Treatments

Genital herpes is a very infectious sexually transmitted disease and is spread by having sexual intercourse or any form of sex. There is no cure for genital herpes. If you have oral sex with someone who has oral herpes (commonly known as cold sores or fever blisters) you are at risk of contracting genital herpes . Touching, sexual intimacy and kissing are all activities which can spread the virus.

Genital herpes has become very common in both the US and worldwide. Between the 1970s and the early 1990s, the number of Americans with a genital herpes infection rose by thirty per cent and sadly, the largest increase has been among teens and young adults. The very latest studies show that at least 45 million people aged 12 and older have this infection - that is one in every five adolescents and adults.

This disease is caused by the herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2 although the type 2 is much more frequently the cause, namely some 90 to 95%. Unfortunately, most of the people infected are unaware of their infection and of course, when they are unaware of their status, the disease can be constantly spread to other sexual partners.

The first sign of a herpes virus appearance may be a rash, together with painful and itchy blisters, on the affected area of hour body. This affected area can be the mouth, anus, buittocks, penis, scrotum, vulva, vagina or buttocks. These blisters can then turn into painful ulcers. On the first outbreak, you may also suffer from swollen glands, a fever or headache and a general rundown feeling. There may be a burning sensation when urinating.

Usually, it takes up to three weeks for the first symptoms to appear but the virus can lie dormant in your system for many years. Sometimes before an outbreak occurs, you may notice some warning signs such as a tingling, burning or itching feeling in the areas where the sores will later appear. Herpes will always have the same symptoms for each outbreak. The first outbreak is usually the worse so although the symptoms seem to stay the same, the actual pain and number of sores should lesson each time an outbreak occurs.

The only proven way to prevent genital herpes being transmitted is to abstain from sexual contact completely or to be in a long-term relationship with a partner who has been tested and who is known to be uninfected. The relationship with this partner must obviously also be mutually monogamous. All other relationships must be handled with extreme caution.

Although the outbreak of genital herpes may eventually clear up without treatment, it is wise to start treatment as soon as possible. Natural healing products have been found to be very helpful in reducing both the symptoms and the duration of the infection.
