Definition of herpes


The picture of bubbles filled with a turbid liquid in an intimate place can frighten even a person with strong nerves.

Genital herpes attacks the most tender places: the anus, the inside of the buttocks and thighs, the perineum.

Initially, before the visual manifestation, the herpes makes itself felt by itching and burning. As a rule, the place of future rashes blushes.

It is possible to note the general morbid state in all patients:

  • weakness;
  • headache;
  • increased drowsiness;
  • painful enlarged lymph nodes in the groin;
  • irritability, nervousness.

Symptoms start about 1 week after infection. Primary herpes manifests itself in 21-28 days. The first 7 days there is an increase in symptoms. Women have reddening on the labia, in the area of ​​future eruptions. Herpes rash lasts about 4 days, then the bubbles burst, the liquid flows out, sores appear on the site of the localized rash. Herpes infected person remains infectious for two more weeks. Important: a cold on the lips, easily transferred to the intimate organs.

To determine the state of the patient's health, ordinary medical examinations are used. Can be appointed: ultrasound, electrocardiography, fluorography. The patient must take tests: blood, urine and others at the discretion of a specialist.
