In the UK, various GUM (genitourinary medicine) clinics have revealed that people have become more aware about herpes, particularly about viral shedding. Though the presence of the herpes simplex virus (HSV) can be detected with the help of STI tests, its nature of attack is always unknown. Once it becomes active, it causes painful and distressful herpes outbreaks several times in a year.
An in-depth knowledge and awareness about herpes is the key to fight its symptoms before an outbreak occurs. It is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases, which can be transmitted from an infected person to another through skin-to-skin or sexual contact. Therefore, it is advisable to not indulge in any type of penetrative or non-penetrative sex while you are experiencing an outbreak. People, who are sexually active, tend to refrain from any sexual activity during an outbreak. But the fact is that even in the absence of any noticeable symptoms, HSV can be transmitted due to viral shedding at infection sites. The transmission of this infection is possible with direct skin-to-skin contact with any part of the body where the virus is present. As there are no visible symptoms even when the viral shedding is occurring, it puts your partner at a twofold risk of contracting the infection when he or she comes in to contact with you. So in a way, you increase the risk for your partner or anybody whom you come in direct physical contact with.
Antiviral treatments for herpes
Though herpes is an incurable condition, it can be controlled and treated with the intervention of antiviral drugs. Once the virus enters the body, it remains there for life. So, antiviral drugs lessen the severity of the initial and recurrent outbreaks. The natural methods of herpes treatment ensure safe and effective control of symptoms with the help of natural ingredients and herbal extracts. These treatments come in two forms, topical creams and oral solutions. The antiviral ingredients are absorbed in the body to fight with the HSV. Herpeset and Dermisil H Formula are two popular natural herpes treatment options, which have already helped many people get relief from their painful symptoms.
