Herpes is a contagious disease caused by herpes viruses. There are eight human herpes viruses known: Herpes simplex virus type 1, Herpes simplex virus type 2, Varicella zooster virus, Epstein Barr virus, Cytomegalovirus, Human herpes virus 6, 7 and 8. They cause infection of skin and mucus. Viruses are normally spread by direct contact with the affected part.Viruses can be caught by direct skin contact with the affected part but only if the virus is present in the skin at the time of contact. Some people may get their first skin symptoms months or years after catching the virus.
HOW DO WE RECOGNIZE IT?
When a person is infected with the herpes virus, he remains infected for life. A typical herpes rash first appears on the lips, chin, cheeks, or elsewhere on the body in the form of open sores and small blisters. Before the emergence of blisters the person feels burning and stinging pain. The person can also suffer from raised body temperature. When the blister disappears it changes to a dry scab and it falls off in two weeks without causing any scar. If we scratch the scabs or blisters we can cause bacterial infection.
CARE OF HERPES SKIN
When the first symptoms appear such as uncomfortable itching or burning we can lubricate it with HERPLESS hemp balsam. We should apply balsam which is based on cold-pressed Hemp Oil and protects the skin against damage or prevents the outbreak of herpes. Apply the lip balm five times a day and repeat the procedure for a few days. In the case of small blisters, we recommend hemp ointment, which contains zinc oxide and consequently dries the blisters and relieves pain.
REMEMBER ... hand hygiene is very important, because herpes is very contagious. After applying ointment to the affected area we should disinfect hands, as it can otherwise transfer the virus into ointment packages. The body needs vitamins B, E, selenium and zinc to defend from viruses. Therefore the use of hemp seed and hemp oil can strengthen your body.
DID YOU KNOW ... reactivation or further outbreak of herpes can be caused by various factors, such as fever, digestion disorders, bad immune system, stress, surgeries, menstruation and flu, ultraviolet light, alcoholic beverages, coffee and cigarettes? After infection we see small blisters on the skin, mucosa or both. When symptoms disappear, the virus is still in the body but lays low and is inactive.
