There are 2 forms of the herpes simplex virus (HSV)—HSV-1 is the virus that generally causes cold sores, and HSV-2 is the virus that commonly causes genital herpes. While most genital herpes is caused by HSV-2, it can be caused by HSV-1.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), genital herpes is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in the U.S., with an estimated 45 million people ages 12+ being infected. Or to put it more simply, 1 in 5 Americans has genital herpes.

How it spreads:

Herpes can be spread by close contact with someone who is suffering an outbreak, even if there are no visible lesions. HSV-1 can be spread to the genitals via oral sex. There is recent concern that eyebrow waxing, due to unsterile conditions, can spread the virus from one person's mouth to another person's eyes.


A primary trigger for herpes outbreaks is stress. Stressors in the form of daily, recurring annoyances, irritations and frustrations that create long-lasting negative feelings promote the virus coming "alive".

Fatigue, such as a chronic feeling of not being able to rest, is also another important factor that can lead to a herpes outbreak.

Weather conditions can also influence herpes. Too much sun, wind or cold weather often bring on more outbreaks, particularly of oral herpes.


Reduce stress. Learning to manage your stress is a key component to becoming free from herpes outbreaks. Hypnosis is an excellent tool to train yourself how to let go of your daily stress in a quick and easy manner.

Balance emotions. Although you are not the only one who has the virus, having herpes can give you feelings of shame and isolation. Hypnotherapy helps you deal with these emotions and build up your self confidence and natural lust for life.
