Genital herpes, also known as herpes genitalis, is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). There are two types of HSV that can cause genital herpes: HSV-1 and HSV-2. Here's some important information about genital herpes: 1. Symptoms: Genital herpes can cause sores, blisters, and ulcers in the genital and anal areas. Other common symptoms include pain, itching, and flu-like symptoms during the initial outbreak. 2. Transmission: It is primarily transmitted through sexual contact, including vaginal, anal, or oral sex. Herpes can also be spread through skin-to-skin contact even when no symptoms are present. 3. Diagnosis: A healthcare provider can diagnose genital herpes through physical examination, symptoms, and laboratory tests, such as PCR or viral culture. 4. Treatment: Antiviral medications  help manage and reduce the frequency and severity of outbreaks. 5. Prevention: Using condoms and dental dams during sexual activity can reduce the risk of transmission. Avoid sexual contact during outbreaks, and discuss your status with your sexual partners. 6. Complications: Genital herpes can lead to complications such as increased risk of transmitting the virus to others, and in some cases, it may cause more serious health issues. It's important to consult a healthcare professional for proper diagnosis, treatment, and guidance if you suspect you have genital herpes or have been exposed to the virus.
