Brief Answer: HERPES EXPLAINED BELOW Detailed Answer: Hello I think you are alluding to Herpes infection. Herpes is a viral infection caused by HSV ( herpes simplex virus ). It can be oral herpes or genital herpes. It is transmitted by contact with the infected individual - kissing, touching an open blister, sexual intercourse ( oral, anal or vaginal ) . It is prevented by using protection ( condoms ) during sexual intercourse, and avoiding kissing or intimate contact with an infected individual. It can cause major complications such as paralysis, septic outbreaks, eye complications, neural problems etc. You can get tested for the disease specifically at a laboratory. Even persons who are not having active lesions act as potential carriers, and can infect others with the virus, while they remain asymptomatic, and at times, unaware. All the best. Please feel free to ask further questions. Take care.
