Chances are, you actually mean 'herpes'. Herpes simples is a viral disease that affects millions of people, and is caused by two different herpes simplex virus types. These are simply Type 1 and Type 2. Infection with this herpes virus can also be categorized into one of the many different distinct disorders, based on where the infection actually is.

For instance, oral herpes has some visible symptoms which are known commonly as cold sores or fever blisters. It infects the face and mouth and whilst they do go away after a while, the virus can attack again at any time during life. Oral herpes is indeed the most common kind of infection.

Then there is genital herpes. This is a sexually transmitted disease and is generally just known as herpes. It is the second most common form of the disease.

There are other disorders, too, and these include herpetic whitlow, herpes gladiatorum, ocular herpes, cerebral herpes infection encephalitis, neonatal herpes, Mollaret's meningitis and even Bell's palsy are all known to be caused by the herpes simplex viruses.

The herpes viruses actually cycle between being active and inactive. They generally present as blister containing contagious and infectious virus particles when they are active. This will last between 2 and 21 days, and will be followed by a remission period. Genital herpes, though, is actually generally asymptomatic. Even though viral shedding may occur, the condition does remain asymptomatic in most cases.

After the original infection, the viruses will be transported along the sensory nerves to reach the sensory nerve cell bodies. Here the viruses become latent and start residing life-long. Causes of this recurrence aren't proven yet, but some triggers to it have actually been identified. If you have this problem then you should get in touch with your doctor to discuss the way forward.

The correct name of the disease is herpes. It is caught through having sex with someone who has the virus. You need prescription drugs and ointments to treat it.
