Genital herpes refers to a sexually transmitted disease that can infect infants at birth, causing blindness , brain damage, or even death. The symptoms of Genital herpes are small, painful bumps or blisters on the genitals.
Genital herpes is also defined as a viral infection transmitted through intimate contact with the moist mucous linings of the genitals. This contact can involve the mouth, the vagina or the genital skin. Outbreaks of Genital herpes are closely related to the functioning of the immune system . Women who have suppressed immune systems, either through stress , disease, or medications, have more frequent and longer-lasting outbreaks.
