Also HSV-1 and HSV-2? In these roles, we look at new scientific data on type 2 herpes simplex virus, and public awareness of the oral and genital herpes.

When many people first tell someone you have genital herpes, begin with a comparison of herpes infection, or oral herpes. For comparison app? Regardless of the scientific facts, social stigma and emotional attitudes about genital herpes difficult to objectively compare the oral infection by chance that most will agree. After the implicit assumptions of our society, many people still believe that "good" herpes virus HSV-1, the most common cause of herpes and "bad" herpes virus HSV-2, the most common genital herpes.

In this role, we look at HSV-1 and 2 to see how well different types of virus in two facts. We asked top researchers if the two compare in terms of severity, frequency and bandwidth. I asked how often takes place outside the normal site, and how each is held in the genital area. We have analyzed the number of types of immunity to oral or genital says that no account is taken of the second kind.

Furthermore, we discuss how our society views oral and genital herpes. What is behind many different images of two types of lead? What can we do? In an interview with director Herpes Hotline offers ways to help replace the decisions of social situations with a healthy respect.

Under the microscope, HSV-1 and 2 are almost identical, sharing approximately 50% of their DNA. Both types of surface infection of the lining of the body, usually the mouth or genitals, and set the delay of the central nervous system. For both species, at least two thirds of infected people have no symptoms or very mild symptoms or warning. But both repeated and expanded, even when symptoms are present.

The main difference between the two types of virus, they tend to lag behind the body, "the place of choice." HSV-1 usually provides trigeminal ganglion delay collection of nerve cells in the ear. From there back to the lips or face. HSV-2 are habitually resident in the caudal ganglion at the base of the spine. Then repeated in the genital area.

This difference is not absolutely any kind may be placed in one or both parts of the body and infect oral and / or genitals. Unfortunately, many people do not know what contributes to the proliferation of type 1 error and that the two differ considerably.

"People do not realize that a man can have sex or oral, that both essentially the same virus, " said Marshal clover, head of the Citizen of the line shingles. One type is associated with the mark of the second after a "cold sores of our society - a euphemism that does not even realize that it's herpes.''

Divided by the myth that HSV-1 causes a mild infection, sometimes annoying but not dangerous. Reality? HSV-1 is usually mild, especially when the lips, face or genitals influences. However, in some cases of type 1 spontaneously return to the eye, allowing ocular herpes, a potentially dangerous infections that can lead to blindness. In very rare cases HSV-1 can spread spontaneously to the brain, causing herpes encephalitis, dangerous infections that can lead to death. HSV-1 is the most common cause of herpes whitlow, an infection of the finger and fighter shingles (herpes gladiatorum) HSV infection of the chest or face.

The scope and potential for HSV-1 has led some experts to see that the virus is more risky than is generally supposed. "This is heresy, but I think that type 1 infection is more important than type 2, " said Spotswood Spruance, MD, oral HSV specialist at the University of Utah. Type 1, and illnesses associated with him was an understatement.

Compared with HSV-2 considered painful and dangerous infection that affects people with very active sex life. Reality? Approximately 22% of adult Americans from all walks of life, income and ethnic groups, HSV-2. If HSV-1, Type 2 is usually mild, so mild that two-thirds of those infected do not know. Type 2 rarely causes complications or spreads to other parts of the body. This is the most common cause of neonatal herpes, rare but dangerous infection in newborns, but type 1 is one third of neonatal infections.

Type 2 behave differently depending on whether they enjoy their site, mouth and face of genital HSV-1 and HSV-2. However, both types very often, and in most cases, no threat to health. This is one reason medical professionals tend to reject HSV -2 despite the trauma, the diagnosis can lead to patient.

Although HSV can be frustrating and painful condition for some people as a whole, the virus is not really a medical problem social problem. For most of us, genital herpes is no more dangerous than herpes.

How much flash?
How is HSV physical problems for a person depends on three things. First, and how the human immune system is unable to fight infection.

Differences in response may be main cause of some annoying frequent outbreaks of herpes or genital herpes, and others. This is the reason for HSV-1 and 2 can lead to serious problems for children with limited immune response, and people with weakened immune systems, such as people with cancer, HIV / AIDS, severe burns and people immunosuppressive drugs.

The second factor influencing the outbreak of the time people had the infection. Over time, the recurrence of HSV-1 and 2 tend to decrease for reasons not entirely clear.

In the case of oral HSV-1, many of the estimated 100 million Americans infected with HIV when they were children. By the time they become adults, only 5% of the people enough to HSV-1 oral health to examine efforts by Spruance.

On the other hand, almost all of about 40 million Americans are infected with HSV-2 infected as adolescents or adults. In the first years who have recurrent outbreaks of secondary episodes of 5:56. Over time, oral infection, the number of explosion typically fall.

The third factor influencing the frequency of outbreaks of HSV-1 and 2 is whether the virus is installed, rather than benefits. Although HSV can infect the genital and oral area, both types of infections cause mild, if they exist outside the home area. Getting the benefits of type 1 and 2 lost most impact.

For example, most people infected with genital HSV-1 region have little or no flash after the first episode, significantly less than normal, both oral HSV-1 and HSV-2. Although experts estimate that about 30% of herpes infections in the U.S. may be caused by HSV-1 only 2-5% for repeated sexual epidemic caused by HSV-1. The study Lawrence Corey, MD, and colleagues from the University of Washington in Seattle showed that HSV-2 is 10 times higher than HSV-1 repeats.

According to a study by Wald et al and others. (New England Medical Journal, 1995) among 110 women with genital herpes, the average number of relapses per year for people with HSV-1 is zero. Other studies show about one outbreak per year (Benedetti, Annals Internal Medicine, and 1994).

In addition, HSV-2 in area theoral site benefits rarely causes problems. First in the mouth, HSV-2 infection are rare, for reasons described below. But even if the infection occurs, recurrent outbreaks are common. In one study (Lafferty et al, New England Journal of medicine, 1987), oral HSV-2 repeats on average 0.01 times a year in people who are infected. "I've never been convincing oral type 2 recurrence saw, " says Spruance.
