Herpes simplex   It is simply known as Herpes.

Herpes simplex is a viral disease caused by herpes simplex viruses; both herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) and herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2) cause herpes simplex. 

Acute viral infectious disease characterised by grouped itchy, vesicular eruptions on skin and mucous membranes.

Herpes simplex is most easily transmitted by direct contact with a lesion or the body fluid of an infected individual. Transmission may also occur through skin-to-skin contact during periods of asymptomatic shedding. Oral herpes causes cold sores around the mouth or face. Genital herpes affects the genitals, buttocks or anal area. Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease (STD). You can get it from having sex, even oral sex. The virus can spread even when sores are not present. Mothers can also infect their babies during childbirth

Herpes simplex should not be confused with herpes zoster, which is a viral disease caused by varicella zoster virus.

Homeopathy and ayurved treats the person as a whole. It means that our treatment focuses on the patient as a person, as well as on pathological condition. The medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc. A miasmatic tendency (predisposition/susceptibility) is also often taken into account for the treatment of chronic conditions.
