Herpes Simplex

Natural Homemade Skin Care Dermatology: Visual Recognition and Case Reviews

Herpes Simplex is a skin condition that occurs as a result of viral infection. Recall that the skin is also known as the "integument", or "integumentary system".

There are two types of Herpes Simplex (HSV).

  • Type I causes the common cold sore, which is usually present on or around the lips.
  • Type II is mainly associated with genital herpes and is sexually transmitted.

Types I and I can both cause either genital herpes or cold sores, depending on the site of initial infection.

HSV blisters are contagious through skin-to-skin contact and are recurrent in some people. HSV can also affect the conjunctiva.

Herpes Simplex is distinctly different from Herpes Zoster.
