The Herpes Virus is a well known virus that can affect a variety of symptoms. It commonly occurs as a Herpes simplex virus infection or Herpes Zoster infection. Within the United States, epidemiological studies have shown that over 90% of individuals over the age of 40 years are susceptible to developing reactivation of the virus (chicken pox at a younger age is counted as the first attack). However, with vaccines the recurrence rate seems to have decreased.
The herpes virus can affect different systems and thus cause different infections. This has been discussed below, along with the treatment of these Herpes infections.
Types of Herpes
This is caused by the Herpes Simplex virus – 1 and 2. It is transmitted through sexual contact with an individual who suffers from oral or genital herpes. Patients complain of painful blisters over the genital area, with occasional fever and pain when passing urine. Even following treatment, it can recur.
2. Oral Herpes
This form is also caused by the Herpes Simplex-1 virus. Transmission is through kissing or oral sex with someone who carries the virus. The characteristic feature is a blister on the edge of the mouth that can be painful.
3. Herpes Zoster (Shingles)
This is caused by the Herpes Zoster virus. It occurs due to reactivation of the virus during adulthood having suffered from chicken pox as a child. The virus lies dormant for years after chicken pox, and can flare up in response to certain triggers or without any reason. Patients suffer from a rash that affects a few nerves under the skin. It can be red and quite painful.
Most cases of herpes infection are diagnosed from history of the illness and clinical examination.
The main future problems associated with herpes infection is recurrence. In cases of shingles, the pain can sometimes remain, and will require special treatments.
