What is Herpes Simplex?

Herpes simplex is a viral infection that affects many people. Chances of getting herpes simplex increase in the presence of a cold sore or fever blisters; the Herpes simplex virus could cause most cold sores. These viral cold sores caused by HSV-1 (Herpes simplex virus type 1) are usually referred by the name Herpes simplex. Other names include:

The HSV-1 virus is responsible for most cold sores on the face, while a second related herpes simplex virus, the HSV-2 causes genital herpes in most people. But either virus can bring about the development of sore on both the face of a person or genitals.
