PLS what are the symptoms and possible best form of treatments?
Everything seems fair enough except that he doesn't sometimes realise that the blisters are present, and this unfortunately put you at risk. But you have nothing to worry about, all you have to do is to check and avoid contact with the blisters so you won't be conterminated with the contagious fluid: It's also an added advantage that the blisters do not appear on his pen'is.
Note: Herpes does not kill, it does not even make a person ill neither does it pose any threat to one's body function nor does it affect one's physical or anatomical system, just the itching (and only during outbreaks)
My advice is, you don't stand at risk of infection as long as you guys do not make genital contacts during herpes-blisters outbreaks, and yet, the outbreaks do not frequently occur.
He will definitely know when there's outbreak because the itching from the blisters is severe, and scratching is inevitable; and besides, if you're too afraid of it, it will be ok for you to check his genital before allowing contacts, by these practices, you're risk free. More still, (like i said before) you can't get herpes from Fluid (sperm) or genital fluid. So, it's possible to be with many herpes-carrier men all your life and yet, you won't get infected as long as the fluid from the blisters does not contact your skin.
How often does he experience the herpes blisters and how severe or slight do they appear in your eyes?
Thanks for the further enlightenment. But you didnt offer any definite advice. To be more candid, my boyfriend has herpes. He only recently told me. We've not been sexually active. I really care about him but I'm afraid of the implications of herpes,especially with respect to pregnancy. Put yourself in my shoes.
How would you know a herpes carrier when you see one, and how do you know that you're not one yourself?
You see, herpes is not really a factor many people considered when it comes to marriages: remember that about 25% of people have the virus even though some seldom have its blisters outbreak. While some carriers occasionally experience its outbreaks, there are some that experienced this outbreak just in the initial stages, and then-after, they never experienced it again nor do they realise that what they had was herpes symptoms. So, such people would also carry the herpes virus in their system without any symptoms to show its presence.
Herpes can appear in various parts of the body and as symptoms of various body disorders: for example, some people experience it on their lips during or after flu condition.
Genital herpes can not be transmitted from sperm-Fluid, pen'is or vig'ina fluids, it can only be transfered during outbreaks on the genital skin (when the blisters are present, and when the fluid from these blisters burst out and contact another person's skin).
So, your question is as good as asking if it is good to marry someone with pruritic papular skin eruption (commonly known as Craw-Craw).
People with herpes, alot of them do get married. I can't say wether I would or wouldn't marry someone with it but I always think, what if the shoe was on the other foot? would that person still love me? I wouldn't expect to find a partner but it's not impossible.
It's sad though, a lot of people put themselves at risk with unfaithful partners or sleeping with someone who isn't aware or just chooses not to telll you they have it until it's too late.
Unfortunately, while HERPES is very easy to contact, it absolutely does not have treatment, once you contact it, it remains a life time infection. The good thing is, it doesn't appear often and does not kill neither does it lead to any other illness nor does it deteriorate into severe conditions.
All a Carrier has to do is to avoid direct contact with other people during outbreaks; for instance, if a person occasionally have herpes on his genital, he should avoid sex during its outbreak because, the fluid in the blisters are very, very infective.
Herpes is not an uncommon infection, it is estimated that one in four women have the infection
