What is herpes simplex of the eye, ? How do you get it, how can you cure it? Can it cause mucas in the throat and coughing?
Very Serious! Herpes simplex is the virus that causes oral "fever blisters". It is highly contagious and can be transmitted to the eye or other mucosal surfaces ( ie vagina) with contact. If you think, or have been told you have it in the eye , this is an ophthalmologic emergency and you should see an ophthalmologist immediately as it can cause permanent scarring and blindness.
