Genital Herpes Simplex

Genital herpes simplex can be confused with symptoms of lichen sclerosus or a vaginal wart virus. There are two types of herpetic viruses, HSV-1 and HSV-2; HSV-1 is commonly associated with oral outbreaks and HSV-2 with sexual reproductive organs. However, either virus may be detected anywhere. Contact with active sores or asymptomatic patients who are shedding the virus can result in infection in the reproductive areas.
