I was born with oral herpes (cold sores), so how did that happen if it is a sexually transmitted disease? Please don't characterize this virus as something as disgusting as a STD (genital herpes is a STD). I don't need any more embarrassment about the eruptions than I already feel. They generally erupt following a particular time of stress.
Any of several diseases caused by herpesvirus, characterized by eruption of blisters on the skin or mucous membranes.Examples: Chickenpox, genital herpes, oral herpes, shingles.....Herpes IS NOT strictly an STD!
