cure for herpes?

Not yet

Dr.%20b
Herpes is one of the most common & frequent infections. Once infected, the virus travels to sensory nerves and remains there lifelong. There is no treatment to eliminate the virus permanently. Reactivation or 'outbreaks' of herpes can be managed effectively with anti-virals. Frequent outbreaks can be prevented with daily anti-virals taken for a year or longer with close supervision from a doctor

Dr. Emily Altman answered:

Is herpes serious?

It depends

12hsimplex
Herpes simplex infections in healthy people are usually localized to the area of infection. In people with weakened immune systems herpes can be serious, causing not only skin infections but also potentially infecting other organs. Herpes infections in newborn babies can be very serious and have lifelong consequences or even causing death.

Symptoms of Herpes?

Herpes Symptoms

Virus
The virus starts to multiply when it gets into the skin cells. The skin becomes red and sensitive, and soon afterward, one or more blisters or bumps appear. The blisters first open, scab over, and then heal as new skin tissue forms. During a first outbreak, the area is usually painful and may itch, burn or tingle. Flu-like symptoms are also common: swollen glands, headache, muscle aches, fever.

Herpes & pregnancy?

Depends

Emergency_c-section
Risk of transmission from mother to baby is highest if the mother is infected around the time of delivery (30-60%). A C-section can be performed to reduce exposure to the baby of mothers vaginal secretions. Acylovir is recommended to suppress herpes starting around 36 weeks. Vaginal birth is still recommended if there are no outbreaks when you are in labor.

Any cure for herpes?

Curing Herpes

Viral_infections
The simple answer is No. But, there is a way to treat any outbreak and a way to suppress outbreaks. Herpes is the name for two different but similar viral infections. The Herpes Type on generally is found in the oral or mouth region and Herpes Type Two is thought to be more likely transmitted sexually and is found somewhere between the belly button and thighs. Treated is possible not cured.
