Herpes is a common viral infection that affects any part of the body. The virus causes oral herpes that manifests in the form of cold sores or fever blisters and genital herpes that manifests in the form of genital sores or sores below the waist. There are basically two types of herpes viruses. They are the Herpes Simplex Type 1 or Herpes Simplex Type 2. These viruses look identical under the clinical observation conducted beneath a microscope and either type can infect the mouth or the genitals.
The body's natural defence mechanism fights the virus whenever herpes attacks the immune system. As the attack and counter attack grows more intense, there is a very evident weakness that sets into the immune system. There are a number of online and offline resources that are dedicated towards making available clinical research on and pictures of the herpes virus. Prior to accessing any pictures of the virus and arriving at any self proclaimed conclusion, it is necessary to understand the widespread attitude towards the virus. No other part of the body gets affect by the virus and that there is nothing one can do to keep from having an outbreak of the virus. The herpes virus manifestations are absolutely curable and do not spread on contact.
