What is herpes and how is it transmitted?
Herpes simplex virus, or HSV, is an extremely common and usually mild viral infection. One in five adults in the US is believed to be infected with genital herpes. HSV causes cold sores or fever blisters (oral herpes), and it also causes genital sores (genital herpes). Even if the HSV infection is not currently causing signs and symptoms, it may cause symptoms later. Herpes can be a recurring and upsetting disease but is rarely dangerous compared to other STDs. However, it can cause recurrent painful sores and can be severe for people with suppressed immune systems. HSV frequently causes psychological distress and may play a major role in the spread of HIV (HSV causes people to be more susceptible to HIV). Although there is not yet a cure for herpes, appropriate treatment is effective in helping to control the disease. There are two primary herpes simplex viruses: herpes simplex type one (HSV-1) and herpes simplex type two (HSV-2). Most commonly HSV-1 occurs above the waist, usually as cold sores or lesions in the mouth or on the lips and face (orofacial herpes); HSV-2 occurs below the waist, usually as genital sores (genital herpes). Occasionally sores can appear on other parts of the body where broken skin has come into contact with the virus.

Shingles: Description and Treatment
I very much appreciate your column in the Health Section of the Journal Sentinel. Wish they came out more often. My wife has been going through a very frustrating and, at times, very painful problem for over a month since first being diagnosed with shingles. She had a doctor's prescription covering the first week of shingles. Since then, the skin eruptions under her right breast and around to her back have dried out, but the redness still appears. She has been treating the areas with zinc oxide, an ice pack and a lotion called Sarna which has given her some relief from itching and other discomforts. I know it is a virus affecting the nerves, but I'm surprised at how little information is readily available for help. Could you please explain this disease? A: Shingles, known medically as herpes zoster, is caused by the varicella-zoster virus, the same one that causes chickenpox in children. The virus remains dormant in the nerves for years, but gets reactivated in about 20% of the general population at some time later in life. About 70% of cases occur in people over the age of 50, and up to 50% of people who live to be 80 will experience shingles. All races and genders are affected equally by shingles that can occur at any season or time of the year.

Genital Herpes: A Hidden Epidemic
by Linda Bren Genital herpes may not be deadly, but it can be physically painful and emotionally debilitating. Those who have it may suffer from painful sores as well as feelings of shame, regret, isolation, and undesirability. "We, as a society, don't do well with STDs," says Terri Warren, R.N., owner of the Westover Heights Clinic in Portland, Ore., specializing in the treatment of sexually transmitted diseases. "When people have a lifelong STD, they feel dirty, damaged, and unapproachable. Most people have a dramatic drop in self-esteem." Curtis Phinney of Rockville, Md., was devastated when he first discovered he had genital herpes. "I was very interested in finding a new successful long-term monogamous relationship," says Phinney, who had been divorced before he became infected. "I was having difficulty as it was. With herpes I thought it would be impossible. I thought I was unlovable, untouchable, undesirable." Genital herpes is on the rise. Since the late 1970s, the number of Americans infected with the virus has increased 30 percent to about 45 million, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Coming to Terms with a Sexually Transmitted Disease Lumps, Bumps and Sores: Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) Advertising HSV is a member of the family of viruses responsible for chicken pox, shingles, and infectious mononucleosis. The strain HSV-1 of this common virus is also responsible for cold sores, canker sores, and fever blisters that appear on the mouth. HSV-1 may be responsible for the genital sores we think of in relation to herpes, but more often the strain HSV-2 is the cause of sores and blisters below the waist. Like other viruses, there is no cure for HSV, but there are drugs to help manage most infections. Because of its ease of transmission, the virus has become extremely common. HSV is not a reportable disease, but an estimated 30 million Americans or more are thought to have it. More than 200,000 new cases are expected each year. Risk factors: You are more likely to get herpes if you or your partner have multiple or casual sexual partners. Rates are high among all racial groups. Approximately one in every five 30-year-old white females has HSV.

Ramsay Hunt syndrome type I, also known as herpes zoster oticus, is a common complication of shingles. Shingles is an infection caused by the varicella-zoster virus, which is the virus that causes chickenpox. Shingles occurs in people who have had chickenpox and represents a reactivation of the dormant varicella-zoster virus. Ramsay Hunt syndrome type I, which is caused by the spread of the varicella-zoster virus to facial nerves, is characterized by intense ear pain, a rash around the ear, mouth, face, neck, and scalp, and paralysis of facial nerves. Other symptoms may include hearing loss, vertigo (abnormal sensation of movement), and tinnitus (abnormal sounds). Taste loss in the tongue and dry mouth and eyes may also occur.

Herpes Simplex
Herpes simplex is one of the commonest infections of mankind throughout the world. There are two main types of herpes simplex virus (HSV); type 1, which is mainly associated with facial infections and type 2, which is mainly genital, although there is considerable overlap.
Recurrent herpes simplex labialis
Herpes simplex on buttock with
scarring from previous episodes Both type 1 and type 2 herpes simplex viruses reside in a latent state in the nerves which supply sensation to the skin. With each attack of herpes simplex the virus grows down the nerves and out into the skin or mucous membranes where it multiplies, causing the clinical lesion. After each attack it "dies back" up the nerve fibre and enters the resting state again. First attacks of type 1 infections occur mainly in infants and young children, which are usually mild or subclinical. In crowded, underveloped areas of the world up to 100% of children have been infected by the age of 5. In higher socioeconomic groups the incidence is lower, for example less than half of university entrants in Britain have been affected. Type 2 infections occur mainly after puberty, often transmitted sexually. The initial infection more commonly causes symptoms.

Genital herpes
Herpes simplex is one of the commonest infections of mankind throughout the world. There are two main types of herpes simplex virus (HSV); type 1, which is mainly associated with facial infections and type 2, which is mainly genital, although there is considerable overlap. Penile herpes simplex These viruses cause lifelong infection with potential for reactivation or recurrence. Often people refer only to HSV-2 when discussing genital herpes but both types can cause infection in the genital area. Clinically, about 60-70% of primary genital infections are due to HSV-2 with the rest due to HSV-1. Both type 1 and type 2 herpes simplex viruses reside in a latent state in the nerves that supply sensation to the skin. With each episode of herpes simplex, the virus grows down the nerves and out into the skin or mucous membranes where it multiplies, causing the clinical lesion. After each episode it "dies back" up the nerve fibre and enters the resting state again.

HERPESVIRUSES The family of herpesviruses is very large, and its members infect most animal species.
There are 7 herpesviruses which are known to infect humans:

It is a characteristic of all herpesviruses that, following primary infection, the virus establishes a latent infection in the host and may reactivate at any stage. Reactivation is frequently, but not always, associated with further disease.
Structure of the virion
All herpesviruses are morphologically identical. They have a large double stranded DNA genome . The VIRION consists of an icosahedral nucleocapsid of about 100 nm in diameter, which is surrounded by a lipid bilayer envelope . Between the capsid and the envelope is an amorphous layer of proteins, termed the tegument Click here to view electron microscope images of the virus. Return to :

    Peer Review Status: Internally Peer Reviewed Herpes simplex, a DNA virus, is carried by a majority of the human population. The virus is harbored in the trigeminal ganglia, and produces lesions in the oral mucosa when activated by stress. Herpes simplex encephalitis arises sporadically and does not necessarily occur in people with a history of oral lesions. Clinically, herpes encephalitis is characterized by rapid onset of fever, chills, restlessness, and signs of increased intracranial pressure. The mortality rate of herpes encephalitis is at least 25%. This gross photo shows the characteristic gross appearance of herpes encephalitis - edema, hemorrhages and necrosis confined primarily to the temporal lobes. The degree of edema is evidenced by the medial displacement of the uncal gyri. The involvement may be bilateral as shown here, or may be unilateral as shown on the next slide. This section of brain shows the late sequelae in a case of unilateral herpes encephalitis. The right temporal lobe is atrophic and ragged. Also, note that the disease process extended into the adjacent cingulate gyrus. In the acute stages, microscopic examination reveals vascular destruction with infiltrates of neutrophils and lymphocytes as shown on this slide

    Herpes II
    (genital herpes) Further Information Wadsworth Center for Laboratories and Research What is herpes II? Herpes II is a sexually transmitted viral infection, which often produces painful sores, usually in the genital area. Once infected, an individual may carry the virus and be subject to recurrent bouts of infection. Some estimate that as many as 20 percent of the adult population in the United States has been exposed to the virus. Who gets herpes II? Any person who has intimate sexual contact with an infected person can contract the infection. In addition, herpes II can be spread from an infected mother to her child during birth. How is herpes II spread? The herpes II virus is spread during sexual contact with an infected person who is secreting the virus in fluids from lesions or mucous membranes. What are the symptoms of herpes II? Typically, the first signs of herpes II is a cluster of blister-like lesions in the genital area (head of penis, labia, anus, cervix) which spread and merge, break and crust over within four to 15 days. The fluid from these itching, painful sores is highly infectious. Other frequent symptoms are painful urination, urethral or vaginal discharge and swollen lymph nodes. The first exposure or primary episode consists of headache, fever, chills and muscular weakness. Recurrent episodes are less severe and are limited to the affected area. How soon do symptoms appear?
