Herpes Signs and Symptoms

Genital herpes is an important public health disease and is the leading cause of genital ulcer disease worldwide. Treatment regimens have largely been based on evidence obtained from randomised controlled trials, while certain new diagnostic tests are limited by lower levels of evidence obtained only from descriptive or case studies. Most patients with genital herpes have no symptoms and shed virus intermittently in the genital tract. Counselling of patients and their sexual partners is critical in the management of genital herpes.

Blistering over the vulval region can be due to multiple causes, each having nearly a similar presentation. Thus, a thorough understanding of the various etiologies is necessary to make a correct diagnosis. Clinically, there always remains some ambiguity as to the precise diagnosis, thus investigations, such as biopsy, play a very essential role in clinching the correct diagnosis. Most of these disorders are amenable to treatment and thus an early intervention is a must to prevent morbidity associated with these diseases.
