Herpes is caused by Herpes simplex virus (HSV).HSV-1causes orofacial and genital infections.HSV-2 causes primarily genital infections. In the U.S.HSV-1 is more prevalent than HSV-2, and HSV-2 is predominant among American African, and women. Initial HSV infection is often subclinical. Viral replication occurs in ganglia, virus spreads to other mucosal surfaces through peripheral sensory nerves. Clinical manifestation include, skin and mucosal infection, orofacial herpes, genital herpes…

TLDR
Correct diagnosis and treatment can restore well-being, avoid secondary problems for patients, and prevent the use of inappropriate drugs.

Herpes simplex (Buttockalis) of the buttock is a variant of herpes simplex genitalis

TLDR
Although HSV-2 remains the major cause of recurrent genital herpes infections (70–90% overall)2, the proportion due toHSV-1 has been increasing in the US, Canada, and the UK, and in these countries, HSv-1 now accounts for the majority of herpes infections in young adults, especially college students.

TLDR
There is a likely possibility the HSV could be a contributing factor in the activation of some neurological diseases by the means of initiating an autoimmune reaction against the host’s nerve cells.

TLDR
It is concluded that HSV viremia during primary genital HSV infection is common, especially among women, and detected more frequently and at a higher number of copies per milliliter early in infection.

Reactivation of genital herpes simplex virus type 2 infection in asymptomatic seropositive persons.

TLDR
Seropositivity for HSV-2 is associated with viral shedding in the genital tract, even in subjects with no reported history of genital herpes.

Rapidly cleared episodes of herpes simplex virus reactivation in immunocompetent adults.

TLDR
This high frequency of short subclinical HSV reactivation in immunocompetent hosts strongly suggests that the peripheral mucosal immune system plays a critical role in clearing HSVs reactivations.

Herpes simplex: insights on pathogenesis and possible vaccines.

TLDR
Gaps in knowledge of the correlates of disease severity and HSV immune evasion are limiting rational advances in these areas, and recent imaging and biopsy studies have begun to show that the temporal and spatial anatomic interplay between virus reactivation and host immune response may be important in reactivations and disease expression.
