Genital herpes is a common sexually transmitted infection that is caused by a virus. It can appear as blisters, ulcers, or sores on the genitals or mouth. Because herpes is a viral infection, it cannot be cured, but with appropriate treatment, outbreaks can be controlled, and side effects can be improved.
We do not require testing prior to beginning treatment, but we do encourage our patients to receive a test to ensure treatment was effective. All of our consultation and treatment services are completely confidential.
