Herpes Blisters

There are many such irritating skin diseases today man is suffering from. But no disease is as dangerous and contagious as Herpes is. Herpes is a disease which results in skin infections in the form of small blisters over various body parts. These Herpetic Blisters are usually small, itchy, red in color, painful and highly contagious. Herpetic Blisters are normally found on the face, in mouth, or in the genitals of the infected individual. Herpes is basically categorized into two types, on the basis of the infected body parts. These two types are called Oral Herpes and Genital Herpes. Herpes is Oral Herpes when the Herpetic Blisters are in or around the eyes, on or around nose, lips, chin, cheeks, neck or elbows. But as far as Genital Herpes is concerned, the infections are in the form of Herpetic Blisters in the genitals of the person including the private parts, groin, buttocks or the opening of the anus. The cause of the Herpetic Blisters is the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) which is of two types, namely HSV-1 and HSV-2. HSv-1 is mainly responsible for Oral Herpes while HSV-2 causes Genital Herpes. But according to some leading Herpes specialists, both HSV-1 and HSV-2 are able to cause both the types of Herpes infections. Herpetic Blisters are highly contagious and can easily be spread by the means of touch, oral or sexual contact with the infected person, at the time of sexual intercourse, oral sex, kissing, or by touching the Herpetic Blisters of others when they are in their active state. These are major means of spread of the Herpetic Sores. Herpetic Sores may be very dangerous as they are chronic and incurable. So, in short there is no such cure which can cure Herpes.
