Genital blisters


Genital blisters are caused by the herpes simplex virus II (HSV-II). It is estimated that 1 million new cases occur each year in the U.S alone. The infection is transmitted during sexual intercourse or by other intimate contact with the genitals, mouth, or rectal area. Once you're infected, the virus remains in your body for the rest of your life. Usually it's in an inactive state, which means it is not causing symptoms. The virus may become active at any time and in some people the disease may recur frequently. Outbreaks can occur from physical or emotional stress, tight clothing, intercourse without enough lubrication, menstruation, or the stress of an illness, like the flu. Herpes is very contagious, especially when sores are present. But it can be contagious when there are no obvious sores. After their first outbreak of herpes, some people shed active virus particles even though they don't have any symptoms themselves.

Symptoms

The symptoms of herpes are often most severe during the first outbreak.

Initial Symptoms of HSV-II include:

The blisters often appear in groups, or clusters. Some people only get one blister sometimes. These lesions rupture on about the 5th day to form wet ulcers that are terribly painful to touch, and can be associated with painful sex, painful urination, pain in the lymph nodes in the groin and terrible pain in area of the blisters. In women, blister can appear on the vulva, around or in the vagina, or anywhere in the genital area. Initial symptoms and recurrent outbreak symptoms may include painful blisters on the genitals of sexes, thighs, or buttocks, tingling, and itching, fever flu-like symptoms, vaginal discharge, and painful urination, painful sex, and tender, enlarged lymph nodes in the groin.

Treatment

Genital herpes can not be cured. The virus will stay in your body forever, but it will remain dormant most of the time, if you are lucky. There is a treatment for it that your health care provider can prescribe. Acyclovir, an anti-viral drug, can relieve the symptoms faster than they would without the drug. Acyclovir or famciclovir (FAMVIR) will also shorten the amount time you are contagiousness and help you have fewer and shorter outbreaks in the future. Ask your health care provider about this drug if you have genital herpes it works very well for many people.
