Herpes is like a really bad acne for your crotch. You get nasty outbreaks of boils, and it isn't much fun. Herpes has no cure, but there are ways to keep the outbreaks from being as severe as they tend to be.
So basically, it's just another good reason to use a condom.

zapreth answered Thursday May 19 2005, 7:59 pm: Herpes is a virus in the same family of viruses as Chicken Pox. However unlike Chicken Pox, Herpes only goes away to lay dormant for awhile. It comes back causeing painful open sores that can pass the virus to others by touch transfer. Cold sores are a mild form of Herpes, though they get worse, larger and more painful with age. Some people are born with the virus, from their mother or father. Most get it by kissing someone with a cold sore or having sex with someone with genital Herpes. Condoms arenot terribly likely to keep you from getting Herpes, because the sores are not just located in the vagina or on the phallus. Plus the condition is painful. I doubt a person with a flairup would be interested in having sex. Aslo it is possible to contract the virus even if the person is not having a flairup, though much less likely. I hope this was the information you wanted. Health. [ zapreth's advice column | Ask zapreth A Question ]

If a person you sleep with has it, chances are you'll get it. No one knows really how it started but it just keeps getting passed along. You can get it on your mouth by giving oral sex to any sex or by having plain old sex. [ xXxpinky615xXx's advice column | Ask xXxpinky615xXx A Question ]
Lizzardi answered Thursday May 19 2005, 6:41 pm: Hi-
Herpes is a sexually transmitted disease- and it is NOT curable. My sister has had it now for 20 years as she had unprotected sex (while on the pill). You can get it from having oral sex with someone as well that is infected. You can take medication prescribed by a gynecologist, but there is no over the counter remedy.
