is a viral infection caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV). There
are 2 types of Herpes Simplex Virus: Type 1 and Type 2. HSV type 1
causes Oral Herpes infection and HSV type 2 causes genital herpes. It
must be noted that there is a considerable overlap in this- HSV type 1
can also cause genital herpes in some cases and vice-versa; this
usually occurs due to transmission via oro-genital contact.
of the patients exhibit the symptoms due to the virus while in many
patients the virus (HSV 1 or HSV 2) resides in a latent (resting) state
in the basal ganglion/nerves (that supply sensation to the skin)
without showing any indications of its presence.
of the sufferers have recurring infections, as the virus has a tendency
to show up its disease activity periodically, especially during phases
of stress, lowered immunity or sometimes without any known reason.
There are over four million new cases of herpes reported every year in
the US. Due to carefree sex and careless contact, as I put it, this
infection is bound to touch an epidemic status one day.

infection is mostly spread by direct skin-to-skin contact. Transmission
may occur directly, or through contact with infected razors, towels,
dishes, and other shared articles. Sexual contact (including
oro-genital contact) is the most common way to transmit genital HSV
infection. The virus can be shed in saliva and genital secretions of
patients, even if they have no symptoms.
infection may not be noticed by the patient at times but if the lesions
do appear they are usually more severe and subsequent recurrences tend
to be milder. Typically herpes presents as small blisters (vesicles)
filled with clear yellowish fluid. The blisters may occur on a raised,
red, painful skin area and they may form, break, and ooze. Yellowish
crusts may slough to reveal pink, healing skin underneath. There may be
several smaller blisters that merge to form a larger blister. Oral
herpes presents as skin lesions that occur around the lips, mouth and
males, genital herpes usually presents as genital ulcers which are most
frequent on the glans, foreskin and shaft of the penis. They are
generally sore or painful and last for 2 to 3 weeks. The local lymph
glands get enlarged and tender. In women, similar lesions occur on the
external genitalia and the mucosa of the vulva, vagina and cervix. Pain
and difficulty passing urine are other common symptoms. Some people may
also develop flu-like symptoms (fever, headache and muscular pain).
herpes shows its activities by producing acute, chronic, episodic,
local and/or generalized symptoms.
horror of the herpes virus lies in its resistance to traditional
medication and tendency to attack again and again. The herpes virus,
detected 200 years ago has a great affinity to the human race and it is
resistant to any treatment targeted at the local eruptions. That is to
say local creams or any (so called) antiviral application may help
little and cannot curb this horrible virus from within.
a rule, homeopathy does not believe in local or external medication.
The constitutionally selected homeopathic treatment administered orally
helps inner healing and the recurring, chronic infection is thus cured
successfully. Over the years we have observed encouraging and positive
results with well selected homeopathic medication. Homeopathy is
strongly recommended for Herpes infection.
