What Australia is saying about InstantScripts

 

What is gential herpes?

Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection that is caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV) which is the same type of virus that causes cold sores.

As many as 1 in 8 sexually active Australian adults have genital herpes. Genital herpes can cause outbreaks of blisters or sores on the genitals and anus. After the initial infection, the virus lies dormant in your body and can reactivate several times a year. Once infected, you can continue to have episodes of symptoms throughout your life.

General symptoms for genital herpes

Genital herpes can cause pain, itching and sores in your genital area. But you may have no signs or symptoms of genital herpes. If infected, you can be contagious even if you have no visible sores. The first time you get sores or blisters (called a herpes ‘episode’) is usually the most severe. You may feel generally unwell as if you are getting the flu, then small blisters appear. They burst and become sores. Later, scabs form, and finally the skin heals after 1 or 2 weeks.

Many cases of genital herpes don’t show up as blisters. They can appear as a small area of rash, cracked skin, or some other skin condition on the genitals.
