What Is Genital Herpes?
Genital herpes is one of the most common and highly contagious infections that spread through unsafe sexual intercourse. This infection usually results due to herpes simplex virus-2 (HSV-2) or the herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1).
Types of Genital Herpes:
Here are two common types of genital herpes that you should be aware of
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 less frequent than those with HSV-2 infection.
2.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 the outbreaks. They can also help to decrease the chances of transmitting 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. To people who have frequent outbreaks, doctors may prescribe suppressive treatment where one is put on daily antiviral drugs.
However, these medicines may cause side-effects, such as nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, skin rashes, or loose motions.
Precautions to Prevent the Infection:
The best way to prevent transmission of the infection is to abstain from sexual contact as far as possible or limit the sexual contact with the infection-free person. In addition to this, one should use protection and strictly avoid intercourse when there is an open sore.
Homeopathic 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 or relief 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 are slowly but steadily reduced with long-term homeopathic treatment for genital herpes.
An added advantage is that homeopathic medicines do not cause any side-effects, such as nausea, vomiting, or abdominal pain. And, homeopathic remedies can be safely taken, even by pregnant women.
