What are Herpes Symptoms?

These symptoms may last up to several weeks, varying from one person to the next. In many people, the first infection is so mild that it goes unnoticed.

For example, if you have a cold sore and kiss someone, you can transfer the virus to their mouth. Similarly, if you have active genital herpes and have vaginal or anal intercourse, you can give your partner genital herpes. Finally, if you have a cold sore and put your mouth on your partners genitals (oral sex), you can give your partner genital herpes. more...
