Herpes on Mons Pubis

Herpes on mons pubis can be as unpleasant as in the genitals or around the mouth. After getting herpes through sexual contact with an infected person,   

the symptoms may show after two to twenty days. However, studies also show that there might be no symptoms at all.

Herpes is an STD caused by a virus called herpes simplex virus (HSV). Infected people see symptoms such as blisters and sores around the genitals or mouth, depending on HSV type. 

Herpes on mons pubis is caused by the infection of HSV-2, which is usually transmitted through intimate sexual contact.

Symptoms of herpes on mons pubis:

As said earlier, herpes symptoms may not appear at all or show after two to twenty days of infection. If you have herpes on your mons pubis, you will first experience a burning, itching, or tingling sensation. Next, blisters and sores will appear on the area, causing discomfort and pain.

The sores may last for two to six weeks, after which you might see symptoms recurring frequently. However, the symptoms tend to get weaker and less severe as the infection gets older. 

Besides blisters and sores, infected persons may even experience fatigue, fever, and the body's overall weakness.

Causes of herpes on mons pubis:

Like genital herpes and oral herpes, herpes on mons pubis have the same cause- intimate sexual contact. Vaginal and anal sex without protection, oral contact with a herpes-infected person, and sharing of sex toys can cause herpes.

Prevention and treatment:

Unfortunately, there is no known cure for herpes, and the person infected by it will carry it for a lifetime. However, the disease responds well to medication and treatment, which can reduce the symptoms.

You can prevent getting herpes by using protection during sex, abstaining from genital and oral sex when the symptoms show, and maintaining proper hygiene.

If you notice sores on the mons pubis or anywhere near the mouth and genitals, talk to your doctor immediately. You can also get a quick and easy STD test at any one of the 4500+ locations in the country confidentially. The best thing you can do to treat herpes is diagnose it early at an STD clinic and get medication.
