There are several different forms of herpes, including genital herpes, oral herpes, and even a herpes infection of the eye (also known as HSV). Often, individuals can have herpes without displaying any symptoms. However, when symptoms do occur, then can include all of the following:

• Shivering

• Warts or blisters

• Rash

• Fever

• Blindness (in the case of HSV)

The herpes virus is spread in many ways. For example, oral herpes is most often seen as a simple cold sore. This type of herpes can be spread through a kiss or sharing a drink. It’s harmless to adults and older children, but can be life-threatening for infants. Genital herpes, on the other hand, is only spread through sexual contact, and often has no symptoms until an outbreak occurs.
