Herpes Simplex

Herpes simplex is caused by Herpes virus hominis, of which there are two distinct serologic types designated as HSV-1 and HSV-2. The first mainly causes disease above the waist, such as cold sores; the second most commonly causes disease below the waist, especially genital herpes. Exceptions to this generalization occur especially among the newborn. The initial active phase is followed by prolonged latency. But the virus can be reactivated by another infection, stress, exposure to sunshine, or any number of other bodily changes.
