Telehealth and Herpes

Telehealth and Herpes

The Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) is one of the most widespread sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Unlike its counterparts, HSV can’t be cured. However, it can be managed, especially when treatments for outbreaks begin right away.

The Herpes Simplex Virus, or more simply called herpes, is categorized into two main types.

1. Oral herpes: Herpes type 1 (HSV-1)

2. Genital herpes: Herpes type 2 (HSV-2)

Oral herpes (HSV1), which is primarily transmitted through oral-to-oral contact, causes breakouts around the mouth and lips, often referred to as coldsores. Genital herpes (HSV2), which is almost entirely transmitted through sexual skin-to-skin contact, causes outbreaks below the waist, typically around the genitals and/or rectum.

Regardless of the type, outbreaks cause many individuals to feel embarrassed and ashamed because of the stigma that’s been built around the disease. For this reason, many individuals now rely on telehealth — like HerpAlert, the leading telehealth service for the treatment of the Herpes Simplex Virus 1 and 2, to consult with a physician and receive their herpes diagnosis and prescription confidentially and quickly. Herpes patients no longer need to make a physical appearance with their doctor and waste time in order to see a physician.

About67 percent of the population is infected with HSV-1, according to the World Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says an estimated 776,000 new cases of HSV-2 occur each year in the U.S. This means there are many others — just like you, who are living with HSV, and looking for a faster and more discreet way to get herpes treated.

The Importance of Herpes Treatment

When you have an outbreak of herpes, you require medication right away once you begin feeling the tingling sensation to slow down or stop the outbreak. If you wait to take medication, you’ll develop an outbreak and it will take longer to eliminate herpes.

To reduce the effect of your outbreak and make the healing process faster, you'll want to use telehealth to receive your prescription immediately. You'll need to begin your medication within 24 hours of breaking out with herpes symptoms. If you choose to go to your primary doctor instead, by the time you set an appointment and actually see them, it's usually too late.

Medications, like Valtrex, can help reduce the amount of time it takes for your outbreak to heal. By taking the medication at first sign of symptoms, you can minimize the interference and disruption in your life, include any interruptions in dating.

Although there's no cure for this condition, you can control and prevent outbreaks through prescription antiviral medications. Sadly, many patients don't see a physician for treatment due to the herpes stigma, the embarrassment of seeing the doctor and having to pick up their medicine in person at the pharmacy.

The good news is, you can now obtain a dependable and discreet diagnosis and receive and online prescription for HSV so you can begin treatment right away.
