Many people might be unaware of the existence of herpes simplex infection. This can be due to their ignorance or majorly for the reason that it is not as common as AIDS or HIV. Yes, Herpes Simplex falls in the category of viral infection which is contagious. Many a times, symptoms are minimum or no symptoms at all. In latter case, the chances of spread are more and if left untreated, this can lead to severe outcomes. As said, it is contagious that means it can be spread from one infected person to a healthy person. The medium for spread can be broadly categorised as oral transmission or sexual transmission.

Treatment and Complications

As herpes simplex is transmitted very easily, the chances of spread are severe. Researchers believe that those with HSV 2 infection are more likely to get HIV infection and vice versa. Those with both HIV and HSV are likely to spread the disease faster. People with less immunity or weaker immunity are more likely to get the infection and with high possibilities of recurrence. HSV 2 has more complications than HSV1, which may include meningoencephalitis and other infections. Another complication is when a woman transmits the virus to a baby in the womb. This is a rare but serious condition that may lead to permanent neurologic disorder an even death.

Herpes Simplex Treatment mainly depends on proper timely analysis of the disease. As most of the cases are asymptomatic, it becomes extremely difficult for the doctors to analyse and propose a treatment methodology. However, as it is a viral infection, usually doctors prescribe antiviral medicines which can reduce the symptoms and may help in regaining the immunity. Rather than treatment, it is always better to prevent the outburst of the infection.
