What is Genital Herpes:
Genital herpes is one of the most common and highly contagious infection spread through unsafe sexual intercourse.This infection is usually caused by the herpes simplex virus-2 (HSV-2) or the herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1).
HSV-1. This is the type that usually causes cold sores or fever blisters around your mouth, though it can be spread to your genital area during oral sex. Recurrences are much less frequent than they are with HSV-2 infection.
HSV-2. This is the type that commonly causes genital herpes. The virus spreads through sexual contact and skin-to-skin contact. HSV-2 is very common and highly contagious, whether or not you have an open sore.
Because the virus dies quickly outside of the body, it’s nearly impossible to get the infection through contact with toilets, towels or other objects used by an infected person.
How is Genital Herpes treated?
As far as conventional treatment for herpes is concerned, there is no cure for herpes. Conventional medicines for herpes are given to prevent or shorten outbreaks. They can also help to decrease the chances of trasmitting the virus to susceptible partners.
Conventional treatment includes anti-viral medicines like acyclovir, famciclovir and valacyclovir. These medicines work by stopping the virus from multiplying in the body. They are not able to clear the virus from the body. In case of people who have frequent outbreaks, doctors may prescribe suppressive treatment where one is put on daily antiviral drugs.
These medicines may cause side effects like nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, skin rashes or loose motions.
Precautions:- The best way to prevent transmission is to abstain from sexual contact as far as possible or limit the sexual contact to one person who is infection free. In addition one should use protection and strictly avoid intercourse when there is an open sore.
Homeopathy Treatment for Genital Herpes:
The basic difference is that while conventional medicine targets the virus, homeopathy believes in improving one’s innate immunity. Once the body’s immunity against the herpes virus is enhanced, a long lasting solution can be expected as the body itself is now able to fight off the virus and prevent it from multiplying inside the body.
Thus, the frequency, severity and duration of each recurring episode is slowly but steadily brought down with long term homeopathic treatment for genital herpes.
An added advantage is that homeopathic medicines do not cause any side effects like nausea, vomiting or abdominal pain. These can be safely taken, even by pregnant women.
