Stages Of Herpes
There are different stages of herpes breakout that you need to be aware of. Treating the early symptoms of the sexually transmitted disease will reduce the chances of permanent cell damage. This will help stop the complete destruction or break down of your skin that can lead to embarrassing scarring. Herpes affects millions of people each year and is estimated to continue its threat as an epidemic if proper treatment is not received. The stages of herpes simplex can evolve as badly as a case of bed sores which completely deteriorate the skin.
I would just like to completely breakdown how much misinformation is in this single paragraph.
Yes, there are different stages of herpes you need to be aware of. But (next sentence) permanent cell damage? What is he talking about? I have had genital herpes for almost 25 years now and I guarantee you, I have zero permanent cell damage. There is no medical evidence that any cell damage occurs – and even, “embarrassing scarring”? I have no scarring. I have had many outbreaks on the skin around my vagina and even with the occasional Brazilian wax (ouch!) there are no red marks or permanent evidence of outbreaks.
Yes, herpes affects millions of people of each year but proper treatment will not discontinue it’s thread of epidemic (which I would argue is not a threat – it is already an epidemic..). Short of an as of yet undiscovered vaccine, safe sex, protected sex, and reducing the risk of herpes transmission will limit the spread of herpes.
What is the link between herpes and bedsores? I have never had bedsores but I can tell you (again) that HSV2 will not completely deteriorate your skin.
The whole thing just makes me grumpy.
