Wikipedia

  1. hsv-1

    Herpes simplex virus 1 and 2 (HSV-1 and HSV-2), also known by their taxonomical names Human alphaherpesvirus 1 and Human alphaherpesvirus 2, are two members of the human Herpesviridae family, a set of viruses that produce viral infections in the majority of humans. Both HSV-1 and HSV-2 are very common and contagious. They can be spread when an infected person begins shedding the virus. As of 2016, about 67% of the world population under the age of 50 had HSV-1. In the United States, about 47.8% and 11.9% are estimated to have HSV-1 and HSV-2, respectively, though actual prevalence may be much higher. Because it can be transmitted through any intimate contact, it is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections.

  1. hsv-1

    HSV-1, or Herpes Simplex Virus type 1, is a highly prevalent virus that causes infections in various parts of the body. The most common manifestation of HSV-1 infection is oral herpes, characterized by oral sores or cold sores. However, it can also cause genital herpes, although this is most commonly caused by HSV type 2. HSV-1 is primarily transmitted through oral-to-oral contact, but can also be spread through oral-genital contact. Once the virus infects a person, it remains dormant in nerve cells, causing periodic outbreaks. Currently, there is no cure for HSV-1, but antiviral medications can help control outbreaks and symptoms.
