Genital Herpes Pictures Show The Ugly Face Of The Disease

By Mildred Daniel on July 01, 2011

Herpes is a sexually transmitted disease that is painful, uncomfortable, and looks terrible when viewed on Herpes pictures. The victims of Herpes find it difficult to get rid of this disease and they are not able to participate in routine activities. The two most common types of Herpes are Simplex 1 and Simplex 2.

Simplex 1: Herpes pictures of this type of Herpes show the full form of the disease on the face. Lips get swollen and bubbles form on them. These are also known as cold sores. Simplex 1 can be prevented by avoiding too much caffeine and alcohol and taking vitamin supplements.

Simplex 2: The most common form of Herpes is in the genital area. Genital herpes pictures show the disease on the victim's legs, arms, or torso and the common name of this disease is shingles. The most common cause of shingles is a type of virus that leads to chicken pox. Even after it is cured, the virus remains dormant in the body and makes its home in the spinal area. When the immune system of the body becomes weak, the virus becomes active again and gives rise to shingles. Genital herpes can be prevented by wearing a condom.

Vaginal Herpes: Herpes pictures of the vaginal area show an outburst of blisters in that area. It is a form of Simplex 2 and it is a lifelong disease. Its virus can affect both men and women but in varying patterns. Vaginal herpes virus is transmitted from one person to another by skin to skin contact if there is any exchange of semen, saliva, vesicle fluid from active lesions, or cervical fluid. Mere contact with the extinct keratinized cells of the outer layer of the skin does not allow the virus to get transmitted. It is only when the virus comes in contact with any abraded skin or mucosal cells it starts to infect and replicate.
Women are at a higher risk of contacting vaginal herpes infection than men. A non-infected woman will be more likely to get this infection if she has intercourse with an infected man as compared to a non-infected man getting infected due to intercourse with an infected woman.

Vaginal herpes can be very painful and vaginal herpes pictures show many small blisters in the vaginal area even during the primary outbreak of the disease. The most affected are the areas around the urethra and the small lips or labia minora. The real pain starts when ulcers begin to develop. The vaginal herpes pictures taken during the ulceration phase show that the areas where the blisters were located lose their skin and cause a lot of pain particularly during urination.

Herpes pictures of the vagina also show swollen lymph nodes in the groin area caused by the initial onset of herpes.

In order to decrease the risk of the spread of vaginal herpes, it is essential for both men and women to use condoms. Moreover, antiviral medication like acyclovir can also help in preventing an outbreak of herpes. Vaginal herpes pictures also show the dorsal nerve root where the virus resides.

The nerves to the vagina are also prominent in stressful times.

Herpes pictures are very helpful in locating the areas of infection and for remedial measures, although it is very difficult to get rid of this disease.

Herpes, especially vaginal herpes, is a very painful disease caused by a virus being transmitted through very close skin to skin contact. Herpes pictures show the actual areas where the disease has caused blisters and ulcerations and one look at those pictures can send shivers down the back. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display("div-41584-46"); });
