Now, let's talk about exactly what herpes are and how dangerous the disease is. Herpes is a virus that essentially causes sores around the mouth or the genitalia, more commonly the mouth. Almost everybody has a strand of this virus within their body from birth, and I assure you this is perfectly normal and nothing to be afraid of! Herpes comes in different strands of varying effectiveness, and most aren't a serious problem in many cases, excepting the occasional flair-up and stigma. Many of us carry the weaker forms of this virus through the creation of cold sores or the occasional mouth sores we may get; some even have this in the form of the chicken pox virus, and these kind of herpes can be contracted through bodily contact in many cases sex. If most people didn't have this virus, many of us would be at risk of contracting the shingles in our lives, which is arguably worse! It's kind of like how many humans have the tuberculosis virus dormant in our lung tissue. Even those with the herpes you see here tend to have it dormant most of their lives. 041b061a72
