Herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) is the main cause of herpes infections that occur on the mouth and lips. These include cold sores and fever blisters. HSV-1 can also cause genital herpes. 2. Herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2) is the main cause of genital herpes. Alternative Names Genital herpes; Fever blisters; Cold sores; HSV-1; HSV-2 Genital Herpes Mode of Spread • Genital herpes is spread by sexual activity through skin to skin contact. The risk of infection is highest during outbreak periods when there are visible sores and lesions. However, genital herpes can also be transmitted when there are no visible symptoms. Most new cases of genital herpes infection do not cause symptoms, and many people infected with HSV-2 are unaware that they have genital herpes. • The herpes simplex virus passes through bodily fluids, such as saliva, semen, or fluid in the female genital tract or in fluid from a herpes sore. • The virus must have direct access to the uninfected person through their skin or mucous membranes, such as in the mouth or genital area. HSV Symptoms When genital herpes symptoms do appear, they are usually worse during the first outbreak than during recurring attacks. During an initial outbreak: Symptoms usually appear within 1 - 2 weeks after sexual exposure to the virus. The first signs are a tingling sensation in the affected areas, genitalia, buttocks, thighs, and groups of small red bumps that develop into blisters. Over the next 2 - 3 weeks, more blisters can appear and rupture into painful open sores. The lesions eventually dry out and develop a crust, and then heal rapidly without leaving a scar. About 40% of men and 70% of women develop flu-like symptoms during initial outbreaks of genital herpes, such as headache, muscle aches, fever, and swollen glands. Symptoms of Genital Herpes Primary Genital Herpes Outbreak. • For patients with symptoms, the first outbreak usually occurs in or around the genital area 1 - 2 weeks after sexual exposure to the virus. • The first signs are a tingling sensation in the affected areas (such as genitalia, buttocks, and thighs) and groups of small red bumps that develop into blisters. Over the next 2 - 3 weeks, more blisters can appear and rupture into painful open sores. • The lesions eventually dry out, develop a crust, and heal rapidly without leaving a scar. Blisters in moist areas heal more slowly than others. The lesions may sometimes itch, but itching decreases as they heal. Recurrent Genital Herpes Outbreak. • In general, recurrences are much milder than the initial outbreak. • The virus sheds for a much shorter period of time (about 3 days) compared to in an initial outbreak of 3 weeks. Women may have only minor itching, and the symptoms may be even milder in men. Symptoms of Oral Herpes Oral herpes most often caused by herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) but can also be caused by herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2). It usually affects the lips and, in some primary attacks, the mucous membranes in the mouth. A herpes infection may occur on the cheeks or in the nose, but facial herpes is very uncommon. Primary Oral Herpes Infection. • Initial oral infection causes symptoms, they can be very painful, particularly in small children. • Blisters form on the lips but may also erupt on the tongue. • The blisters eventually rupture as painful open sores, develop a yellowish membrane before healing, and disappear within 3 - 14 days. • Increased salivation and bad breath may be present. • Rarely, the infection may be accompanied by difficulty in swallowing, chills, muscle pain, or hearing loss. • In children, the infection usually occurs in the mouth. In adolescents, the primary infection is more apt to appear in the upper part of the throat and cause soreness. Recurrent Oral Herpes Infection. • Most patients have only a couple of outbreaks a year, although a small percentage of patients have more frequent recurrences. HSV-2 oral infections tend to recur less frequently than HSV-1. • Recurrences are usually much milder than primary infections and are known commonly as cold sores or fever blisters, because they may arise during a bout of cold or flu. • They usually show up on the outer edge of the lips and rarely affect the gums or throat. Cold sores are commonly mistaken for the crater-like mouth lesions known as canker sores, which are not associated with herpes simplex virus.
