Herpes simplex virus (HSV), which can cause genital herpes, is a commonly transmitted sexual infection that affects both genders. While indications of the infection can be itching, pain and sores on the face, mouth, and genital areas, you may be contagious even if you show no visible signs.
The sexual contact is the primary method of spreading. Once infected, a person can pass along the infection to a partner immediately or in some cases the virus can remain inactive and can only reactivate at certain times of the year. There are not any known cures for the genital herpes, but medications have been developed, being capable of minimizing symptoms and reducing the chance of spreading.
