GENITAL HERPES/GENITALE HERPES

GENITALE HERPES/GENITAL HERPES

When awareness of genital Herpes was first raised in the 1970’s, it was a condition considered incurable, untreatable and therefore something terrible. Nowadays, genital Herpes is manageable and sufferers can lead a normal and happy life.

HOW DOES ONE GET GENITAL HERPES

Genital Herpes is spread via direct skin-to-skin contact. Normally, genital Herpes is caused by the HSV-2 form of the Herpes simplex virus, but a person with a fever blister virus can cause genital Herpes if there is mouth contact with the genitals.

Normally, symptoms appear 2-20 days after the infection has been contracted. This is usually the worst stage, because the body has not yet had time to develop any anti-bodies. Pain, discomfort in the genital area and fever, are typical symptoms.

In some instances, the first outburst can be so mild that it actually goes by unnoticed. Some people have genital Herpes and don’t even know it. Sometimes, when a second outburst occurs years later, shock and confusion may be experienced by partners, which will definitely have an impact on the relationship.

WAT IS DIE SIMPTOME VAN ‘N HERHALING?

WAT VEROORSAAK UITBARSTINGS?

Niemand weet werklik hoekom genitale Herpes weer terugkom nie, maar ‘n paar faktore mag verantwoordelik wees soos bv.:

Die herhaling en hewigheid van ‘n uitbarsting verskil van persoon tot persoon. Met tyd behoort uitbarstings minder dikwels voor te kom en ook minder fel te wees.

WANNEER IS GENITALE HERPES AANSTEEKLIK?

Genitale Herpes is aansteeklik vanaf die oomblik dat die eerste simptome verskyn (gejeuk, prikkelgevoel, ens.) totdat die area VOLKOME genees het. Indien jy seksuele kontak gedurende hierdie tyd VERMY, is dit onwaarskynlik dat jy genitale Herpes sal opdoen.

HOW TO CONTROL GENITAL HERPES

Because genital Herpes can be a constant source of worry, it is important that it is kept under control. The first step is to get a confirmed diagnosis from your doctor who will then prescribe treatment. Virucidal treatment that will limit the pain and duration of another episode, is available. Should repeats of the infection occur regularly, treatment under supervision of your doctor, should take place on an ongoing basis.
