Herpes simplex viruses cause a wide variety of infections, including genital herpes, a sexually transmitted disease that affects one in five people in the United States. Understanding Herpes is a clearly written sourcebook about the virus, its various strains, the ways in which it is transmitted, its symptoms, and the most effective treatments for fighting infection and after-effects. The book also details how the virus can manifest itself in AIDS patients, pregnant women, and newborns, and discusses the emotional problems that can be caused by herpes infections. A chapter on vaccines includes information about topical microbicides that may prove effective in preventing genital herpes in women.
