Genital Herpes Simplex is an incurable sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). There are two distinct subtypes of HSV known as type 1 and type 2. Type 2 is most commonly associated with genital infection, while Type 1 is more commonly associated with oral herpes (cold sores). After the initial infection, HSV remains dormant in certain nerve cells of the affected area of the body for life. The dormant virus may reactivate and cause recurrences.
