Oral herpes, an infection caused by the herpes simplex virus, is estimated to be present in fifty to eighty percent of the American adult population. Genital herpes, also caused by the herpes simplex virus, is estimated to be present in twenty percent, over fifty million people, and the majority of these cases may be unaware they even have it. Studies show that more than 500,000 Americans are diagnosed with genital herpes each year, and the largest increase is occurring in young teens. Most genital herpes is caused by HSV-2.
Primary orofacial herpes is readily identified by clinical examination of persons with no previous history of lesions and contact with an individual with known HSV-1 infection. The appearance and distribution of sores in these individuals typically presents as multiple, round, superficial oral ulcers, accompanied by acute gingivitis. Adults with non-typical presentation are more difficult to diagnose. Prodromal symptoms that occur before the appearance of herpetic lesions help differentiate HSV symptoms from the similar symptoms of other disorders, such as allergic stomatitis.
When lesions do not appear inside the mouth, primary orofacial herpes is sometimes mistaken for impetigo, a bacterial infection. Common mouth ulcers also resemble intraoral herpes, but do not present a vesicular stage. Genital herpes can be more difficult to diagnose than oral herpes since most HSV-2 -infected persons have no classical symptoms. Further confusing diagnosis, several other conditions resemble genital herpes, including fungal infection, lichen planus, atopic dermatitis, and urethritis. Laboratory testing is often used to confirm a diagnosis of genital herpes.
As with almost all sexually transmitted infections, women are more susceptible to acquiring genital HSV-2 than men. On an annual basis, without the use of antivirals or condoms, the transmission risk of HSV-2 from infected male to female is approximately eighty to ten percent. This is believed to be due to the increased exposure of mucosal tissue to potential infection sites. Transmission risk from infected female to male is approximately four to five percent annually. Suppressive antiviral therapy reduces these risks by fifty percent.
Antivirals also help prevent the development of symptomatic HSV in infection scenarios by about fifty percent. Condom use also reduces the transmission risk by fifty percent. Condom use is much more effective at preventing male to female transmission than vice-versa. The effects of combining antiviral and condom use is roughly additive, thus resulting in approximately a seventy five percent combined reduction in annual transmission risk. These figures reflect experiences with subjects having frequently recurring genital herpes.
In many infections, the first symptom a person will have of their own infection is the horizontal transmission to a sexual partner or the vertical transmission of neonatal herpes to a newborn at term. Since most asymptomatic individuals are unaware of their infection, they are considered at high risk for spreading HSV. Antiviral medications can reduce the frequency, duration, and severity of herpes outbreaks. Analgesics such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen can reduce pain and fever. Topical anesthetic treatments can also relieve itching and pain.
As is known, chemical synthetic drugs have a very strong side effects and can cause canceration and malformation to the body, damage of physiological function, and even paralysis and death. While the ingredients of natural drugs are all biological organics and essential materials that are useful and harmless to human and animals selected and left by long-term practice. Natural plant medicine for herpes is recommended by more doctors than any other treatment. Natural plant medicine is highly effective against all forms of herpes.
The certified organic ingredients in plant medicine are medically proven to deactivate the herpes virus on contact. The medicinal plant extracts in plant medicine for herpes are lipophilic. As a result, they penetrate deep into the skin and bloodstream and provide a therapeutic effect. This provides the absolute strongest potency in each and every application and is also the safest for the body. Natural treatments for herpes are strong, pharmaceutical strength, and free from toxic herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers.
