Herpes: Herpes is two viruses. They cause a permanent, non-curable infection of the skin and the associated nerves for that patch of skin. The simplex or "type one" is formally known as oral herpes. It is found in 75% of americans and is usually caught from family members when a child. The other, type two is known as genital herpes and can lead to significant trouble with pregnancy, delivery and hiv.
