Location. Herpes simplex virus 1 and 2 (hsv-1 and hsv-2), are two members of the herpesvirus family, herpesviridae, that infect humans. Both hsv-1 (which produces most cold sores) and hsv-2 (which produces most genital herpes) are ubiquitous and contagious. They can be spread when an infected person is producing and shedding the virus. Not sure what pills you are asking about.
Herpes Simplex. Herpes simplex 1: http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/cold-sore/basics/definition/con-20021310 ; herpes simplex 2: http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/genital-herpes/basics/definition/con-20020893.
Sunscreen. The best prevention of herpes simplex labialis (type i) of the perioral area is routine use of a broad spectrum sunscreen. If the episodes are severe and frequent, consult with your physician regarding the administration of a systemic antiviral drug (acyclovir, valacyclovir).
Hi, I waked up with bump on my lip it was puffy, no pain nothing. I read online about this herpes simplex I don't think I have it?
Possibly. If it is caused by the herpes virus, the bump will become an ulcer or sore and then scab over and slowly heal. Over the counter treatments such as Abreva and products containing Benzylconium Cloride or prescribed antivirals such as Acyclovir will shorten this cycle or even clear it if applied early enough. See your dentist to confirm the cause before starting treatment.
Acute infection or? As immunologists we get questions about what does it mean to have igg and igm antibodies. Igg antibody levels indicate an immunity resulting from past exposure to an infectious agent. Igm antibodies are produced during the acute stage. If you are positive for igg antibodies to herpes simplex that means that you had past exposure. If igm antibodies are present, it indicates current infection.
Ulcers/Warts. Herpes simplex is a virus that causes ulcers and warts. Hsv1 is generally in the mouth and presents as vesicular bundles that later create ulcers such as in a cold sore. Hsv2 occurs in the genital region. It is possible for both types to occur in either location. Igg and igm are types of antibodies that help mediate our bodies immune response.
See below. Herpes simplex is a common virus found in humans. There are two main types, referred to as type I and type ii. Igg stands for immunoglobulin g...It is an antibody found in the human body. Igm is immunoglobulin m...Another antibody. It shows up early on in an infection and is used to differentiate certain types of infections.
HS I above the waist. Herpes simplex is a very communicable viral infection with type I occuring usually in the mouth/nose/face (usually transmitted asexually) and type ii occuring in the genital/anal area (usually transmitted sexually). The initial infection is very intense, accompanied by fever and swelling. In remission the virus "hides" in the nerve sheath and can be triggered by stress or environmental exposure.
Previous infection. Hsv I is usu oral herpes (cold sores) and hsv ii is usu genital herpes although 15% of the time, they are found in the opposite location. Igm means that your body has a recent immune response (usually activeinfection) and igg means there was a previous infection. Once infected, it always lives in your cells whether active or not. 90% of people have hsv I igg abs even if they never had an outbre.

Antibodies. Antibodies are composed of immunoglobulins and igg is one which when present suggests that an individual has been infected with the organism against which the antibody reacts. Most adults have antibodies to herpes simplex, but the antibody test cannot accurately tell whether to type I or ii because of cross reactivity between the two.
Medication. Valtrex, (valacyclovir) acyclovir, etc... See your doc. Don't kiss the baby until this is taken care of.
Virus infection. Do not kiss your baby until herpes is gone. A simple remedy is taking the Amino Acid lysine that you can usually obtain from a health food store.
Risk/benefit. Many cultural practices are just that, a practice that represents something. Kissing your baby could put them in the hospital, so your thinking brain needs to decide that your emotional brain needs to wait. If you are lucky you can have most of your life to kiss on the kid, when the HS is not active.
Cold sores. When active are highly infective so do not kiss your baby. Can speed up healing by using topical antiviral. Also avoid oral sex when active as the recipient of oral sex can develop genital herpes.
No. A fever blister is another name for an oral herpes simplex infection/ lesion.
