Genital herpes is an infection that primarily spreads through sexual contact; it’s caused due to the herpes simplex virus that causes itchiness, soreness, or pain in the genitalia. In addition, both men and women may develop sores around the mouth, anus, buttocks, thighs, and urethra. For men, the penis or scrotum and for women, the vaginal area, cervix, or external genitals are also susceptible to sores.
Other complications commonly associated with genital herpes include bladder implications, meningitis, rectal inflammation, newborn infection, or other sexually transmitted infections. Unfortunately, recurrences aren’t uncommon to genital herpes as they may keep recurring for years.
