How Common Is It for People to Have Herpes?


Herpes is one of the most common types of sexually transmitted diseases all over the world. Since it can be highly contagious and remains dormant in the organism, many people with an active sexual life have the disease and suffer from its outbreaks. There are many individuals who never had symptoms or only felt an indifferent tingling in the infected area, but have the virus and can spread it to other individuals as well. Since asymptomatic individuals and contact between outbreaks can spread the disease, many people get infected without knowing every year.
