Herpes on the rise among Australia people



The first Australian study of herpes simplex virus infection -- published in the British journal "Sexually Transmitted Infections" -- also found 76 percent of Australian adults were exposed to the other main variant, HSV-1, which causes cold sores on the mouth and lips, The Australian reported Friday.

Genital infections, or HSV-2, were more than twice as common among women as men -- 16 percent to 8 percent, the study found.

The study was funded by drug giant GlaxoSmithKline, which is developing a vaccine for HSV-2.Lead author Tony Cunningham, deputy chairman of the Australian Herpes Management Forum, said the findings were significant as HSV-2 trebled the chance of contracting HIV.

Cunningham said it was suspected but still unproven that a greater incidence of oral sex among adolescents was increasing the HSV-1 infection rate. Contrary to popular belief, this variant could infect the genital area, he said.

He also warned against oral sex for women in late pregnancy, as HSV-1 could be passed to the baby, with serious or fatal consequences in 25 percent of neonatal infections.



After being diagnosed with herpes, you may feel that you are doomed to a life of solitude. Today however, with the internet, there are many Australia herpes dating sites and herpes support groups dedicated to Australia people living with Herpes and there is no reason to lack companionship. In some respects, you have it easier, because when you meet people on these herpes dating sites, you can relate on a intimate level. Everyone understands what your challenges are and in some cases you form an instant bond because of this.



WHAT IS GENITAL HERPES?



Genital Herpes is caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV), which is one of the most common infections in humans. There are 2 types of Herpes Simplex Viruses:

Type 1 - is usually found around the lips and is commonly known as a cold sore

Type 2 - is usually found around the genitals or anus

It is important to note that both types can occur in either area. Genital herpes is usually caused by HSV-2, but increasingly being caused by HSV- 1 because of the rising popularity of oral sex.

Once a person has the Herpes Simplex Virus, it travels along the nerves that are connected to the affected areas and lies dormant. The virus can re-activate later and travel along the nerve to the skin surface and cause a recurrence.





Dealing with Herpes



Genital herpes as a diagnosis is not a death sentence, but managing and coping with herpes will be an ongoing part of life. If you have been recently diagnosed or if you are just curious, start researching now. The more information gleaned about a subject, the less frightening it is. 

You don't have to deal with all this on your own. If you feel uncomfortable talking about your feelings with people you know, you can hash things over with others who have herpes, in either an online or in-person herpes support group. Be assured that you're not the only person in this situation. A counselor or therapist can also help you resolve some issues.
