Genial warts and Genital Herpes are both sexually transmitted diseases and they both cause lesions in the genital area.  They are both caused by a virus and cannot be cured but can be treated.  They can be spread to a sexual partner during a breakout or when they are lying dormant.





Herpes outbreaks are treated with antivirals taken either daily or just when there is an outbreak.  The antivirals include the brand names Zovirax, Famvir and Valtrex.  These medications can have side effects including headache, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.


The first outbreak of Genital Herpes is usually the worst.  It can include a fever and more of the blister like lesions and can be quite uncomfortable.  It is important to get treatment when signs first appear.


Seeking treatment for Genital Warts or Genital Herpes can be a sensitive issue.  It may cause some embarrassment because they are sexually transmitted diseases.  The examination of your genital area may cause some embarrassment.


There is nothing to be ashamed of if you get Genital Warts or genital herpes.  Contrary to popular misconception, these are just medical ailments like any other and they can be treated.
