How to Cure Herpes Naturally without Drugs?
Herpes, both genital and oral is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that is caused due to two strains of the herpes simplex virus, HSV-1 and HSV-2. The former causes cold sores in the buccal cavity, face and the lips, though sometimes it may cause sores near genitals as well. The latter is mostly restricted to sores the genitals and normally does not affect other parts of the body. However, herpes might be transferred to the genital region from a cold sore, in case proper hygiene precautions are not followed stringently. It can also be transmitted via any genital or oral sexual contact. Note that the virus does not necessarily have to be active to spread from one individual to another – even if blisters are not present externally, infection can spread through contact.
