GENITAL HERPES

TREATMENT

Treat and suppress outbreaks before the first symptom. Prescription medication may also minimize the risk of transmitting herpes by decreasing viral shedding between outbreaks. A doctor will work with you to see if outbreak, suppressive, or intermittent therapy is right for you.

What is Genital Herpes?

Genital herpes is a common sexually transmitted infection caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). Sexual contact is the primary way that the virus spreads. After the initial infection, the virus lies dormant in your body and can reactivate several times a year.

Genital herpes can cause pain, itching and sores in your genital area. But you may have no signs or symptoms of genital herpes. If infected, you can be contagious even if you have no visible sores.

There's no cure for genital herpes, but medications can ease symptoms and reduce the risk of infecting others. Condoms also can help prevent the spread of a genital herpes infection.

Symptoms

Most people infected with HSV don't know they have it because they don't have any signs or symptoms or because their signs and symptoms are so mild.
When present, symptoms may begin about two to 12 days after exposure to the virus. If you experience symptoms of genital herpes, they may include:

  • Pain or itching. You may experience pain and tenderness in your genital area until the infection clears.
  • Small red bumps or tiny white blisters. These may appear a few days to a few weeks after infection.
  • Ulcers. These may form when blisters rupture and ooze or bleed. Ulcers may make it painful to urinate.
  • Scabs. Skin will crust over and form scabs as ulcers heal.

Treatment

iLiveActive-affiliated physicians prescribe valacyclovir (generic Valtrex) to treat genital herpes. When used properly, this medication can abort an outbreak at the first sign that one is coming on or lessen its severity.

Valacyclovir is associated with a number of side effects, including rare but serious side effects impacting the kidneys and nervous system.
