Part Description

LP14558-8   Herpes simplex virus
The herpes simplex virus (HSV) manifests itself in two common viral infections, each marked by painful, watery blisters in the skin or mucous membranes (such as the mouth or lips) or on the genitals. The disease is contagious, particularly during an outbreak, and is incurable with present technology. An infection on the lips is commonly known as a cold sore or fever blister. These are sometimes confused with canker sores or aphthous ulcers, which have a similar appearance; these appear inside the mouth and are not caused by the herpes simplex virus. When not symptomatic HSV lies dormant in nerve cells, growing along the axons of the skin during an outbreak. When the outbreak has passed, the virus 'dies back' along the nerve until it is only present in the nerve body. The dormancy of the virus within the nerve bodies contributes to the difficulty of treatment. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License. See for details.
