Understanding Herpes

Herpes is a viral infection caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). There are two types of herpes viruses: HSV-1, which typically causes oral herpes (cold sores), and HSV-2, which is responsible for genital herpes. Herpes breakouts can be recurrent and may cause discomfort, pain, and emotional distress.

Common Symptoms of Herpes Breakouts

Herpes breakouts can manifest with various symptoms, which may include:

  • Painful Sores: Small, fluid-filled blisters that can appear on or around the mouth or genital area.
  • Itching and Burning: Discomfort, itching, or burning sensations before the appearance of sores.
  • Flu-Like Symptoms: Fever, fatigue, and swollen lymph nodes may accompany breakouts.
  • Recurrent Outbreaks: Some individuals experience recurrent herpes breakouts triggered by various factors.

Causes of Herpes Breakouts

Herpes breakouts are caused by the herpes simplex virus. Factors that can trigger or exacerbate breakouts include:

  • Stress: Emotional or physical stress can weaken the immune system.
  • Illness: Other illnesses or infections can trigger herpes breakouts.
  • Sexual Activity: Sexual contact with an infected partner can lead to genital herpes outbreaks.
  • Hormonal Changes: Menstruation or hormonal fluctuations may influence herpes recurrence.

  1. Telehealth Consultation: Schedule a telehealth consultation with one of our experienced healthcare providers to discuss your symptoms, medical history, and potential herpes triggers.
