Welcome to the HA.org Herpes Blog! This is a place dedicated to a topic that is really prevalent in our society YET seldom do people talk about it. Yep, its estimated that up to 75% of the population have cold sores and over 25% of people have genital herpes but there is such a stigma related to STDs (and herpes in general) that it is still “taboo” to be honest and upfront about this condition. Well that’s about to change right here.
I want to talk about those wierd and wacky symptoms that sometimes come with the territory, how we can prevent transmitting the virus further and why it is important to beat this virus (the mental battle is often the toughest challenge).
