Herpes is a viral infection caused by herpes simplex. It is a lifelong disease that often causes no obvious symptoms, but occasionally flares up and causes  painful blisters. It can affect the lips (cold sores) or the the genitals and surrounding areas. 

Although there is no cure for genital herpes, anti-viral medication can effectively relieve current and recurring outbreaks.
