Herpes - sores on male sex organ Genital herpes

The signs of herpes appear about 2-10 days after sexual contact with an infected person.

These include:

  • itching/burning-feeling in the genital area
  • water blisters (vesicles) or open sores
  • discharge of fluid from the vagina.

Herpes sores heal after 3-4 days but often recur. Treatment relieves pain and discomfort but cannot prevent recurrence. A woman with herpes may infect her newborn at childbirth causing blindness or mental retardation.

Abstract

Rush to judgment: the STI-treatment trials and HIV in sub-Saharan Africa.
Sat, 23 May 2015 06:56:02 +0100 | Journal of the International AIDS Society
CONCLUSIONS: Shortcomings in published RCTs render invalid the conclusion that treating STIs and other cofactor infections is ineffective in HIV prevention. Meta-analyses of observational studies conclude that STIs can raise HIV transmission efficiency two- to fourfold. Health policy is always implemented under uncertainty. Given the known benefits of STI control, the irreparable harm from not treating STIs and the likely decline in HIV incidence resulting from STI control, it is appropriate to expand STI control programmes and to use funds earmarked for HIV prevention to finance those programmes.
