Forty-five million people in the United States are infected with the herpes simplex virus (HSV). According to estimates 500, 000 new cases of herpes occur annually. A shocking 80 percent of people infected with HSV are never aware that they are infected because either they never develop symptoms or they fail to recognize the symptoms when they do occur.

There are two types of herpes and both can affect the genitals and the mouth. HSV-1 (facial herpes) most commonly occurs on the lips in the form of fever blisters and cold sores. HSV-2 (genital herpes) most commonly appears in the genitals. Once a person is infected with HSV it remains for life and people can experience periodic episodes of active herpes.

Transmission :Herpes is spread by direct contact including: Sexual contact as well as Kissing and Skin-to-skin contact which transmits HSV-1 and HSV-2 Mild symptoms can be experienced with HSV-2, but often no apparent symptoms are present.
HSV-2 may cause recurrent painful genital ulcers and can be severe in people with suppressed immune systems. Severe genital herpes frequently causes psychological and emotional stress.

If the first episode of herpes occurs during pregnancy she can pass the virus to her unborn baby and she may be at higher risk of premature delivery. Approximately 50% of babies born with neonatal herpes die or suffer neurological damage. Babies can develop encephalitis, severe rashes, and eye problems.
People infected with herpes may be more susceptible to HIV infection, and HIV-infected individuals may be more infectious.

As a society, we take better care of our cars, pets, and toys than we do ourselves. We often sacrifice sleep, regular meals, and exercise in pursuit of our goals. we all weaken our immune systems when we don't eat right, don't get enough exercise or sleep, when we are exposed to environmental toxins and when we are under too much or chronic stress. Too often we end up into imbalance of doshas.
Impurity of pitta along with that of blood is the main causative factor for the pathology to appear. Various factors like poor digestion, very wrong eating habits, eating lots of spicy or bitter food, etc. will affect the secretion of digestive juices and lead to improper digestion of food, which will give birth to Ama that causes impurity of blood.This impurity of blood leads to appearance of leasions on the skin.
