Genital herpes


Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection (STI). It is caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). HSV affects the genitals, mouth, and eyes.

There is no cure for genital herpes, but medicines can help relieve symptoms.

HSV is a ubiquitous virus. It is passed from one person to another during sexual contact. HSV can cause sores in the genitals, mouth, and eyes.

Prevention steps include using condoms and being monogamous with a partner who does not have herpes.
