Genital herpes
Genital herpes is a common sexually transmissible infection (STI) caused by herpes simplex virus (HSV). Clinically, the infection presents with genital ulcers but may also be asymptomatic. The risk of genital HSV infection is associated with increasing number of sex partners, previous infection with another STI and female sex. The cornerstone of treatment is systemic antivirals such as acyclovir. Counselling on transmission and recurrence risks is essential, and psychological distress is often a consequence of the disease.
