For the month of august, as you know we are focusing on sexually transmitted infections and this week we’re going to focus on another virus. It’s called the herpes simplex virus. Herpes virus can induce something called genital herpes and in fact there are two types of herpes virus.
One is called hsv1 herpes simplex virus 1 and naturally herpes simplex virus 2. And herpes simplex virus 1 tends to be more prevalent in the oral cavity resulting in something called cold sore however herpes simplex 2 virus.
It commonly happens in the genital area for both men and women and it is actually more commonly known as genital herpes. So how does this virus come about let’s find out. What is the prevalence of this virus.
