3. Sexually Transmitted Disease?

There is a considerable amount of stigma around the herpes virus. Genital herpes is a well-known sexually transmitted disease. In fact, it is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases on the planet. Genital herpes is typically spread through sexual contact with an infected person, and fever blisters are another name for herpes that infects the mouth.

Although oral herpes and genital herpes are usually caused by different strains, although fever blisters will sometimes be caused by the strain that causes genital herpes. This is often the case when somebody has performed oral sex on somebody that has genital herpes. However, this does not mean to say that fever blisters are necessarily sexually transmitted disease. Indeed, sex is not the method of transmission in the vast majority of cases.
