The herpes simplex virus has been tormenting the world since time immemorial. It is indeed a scourge because there is no known herpes cure. Becuase herpes retreats and hides in the nerves between outbreaks (this is known as the dormant phase), it is virtually impossible for your body to fight it.
Herpes announces itself in an outbreak of tiny blisters manily around the genital area which later turn into open sores. After an attack the HSV backtracks to the nerve endings and hides, making it difficult to treat or to find a cure.Herpes Cure Studies
Scientists are researching to try to find a herpes cure. As of now the only form of medication is that which helps suppress the herpes outbreaks and topical treatments to kill the virus once an outbreak occurs.
The simple fact that herpes is a virus makes it so hard to find a herpes cure. As a rule the immune sustem will deal with and destroy any viruses it finds but that fact that the herpes virus hides itself so well in the nerves when in the dormant phase makes finding a herpes cure a more difficult task.Herpes Cure Medicines
Medication is currently the only solution that we have for herpes. Antiviral medication can help suppress the herpes outbreaks (but is not a herpes cure) and (sometimes) keeps the condition dormant. However varying levels of stress can still cause the virus to come out of the dormant stage. As of now there are no approved herpes vaccinations; however scientists are testing vaccinations on willing participants.
Being careful cannot cure herpes, nevertheless...
When considering this situation one must remember that there are precautions that people can use as to not come into contact with this virus. During any sexual activity, one must make sure that the sexual intercourse is protected. This is not a definite way to prevent catching the virus, but it dramatically reduces the chance of becoming infected.
One of the primary methods that herpes is getting spread is from oral sex. Many people (particularly the young) do not even consider oral sex to be a sexual activity but this is indeed a huge factor in the growing number of herpes infections. This is silly becuase simply using protection would stop that infection in almost 100% of all cases.
If you are looking for an absolutely sure way to not get infected with herpes, you will need to consider abstaining from all sexual contact.
