Prevention of Genital Herpes
Safe sexual habits like not having too many sex partners should be practised by all. One should also try not to get sexually active at a very young age. Since genital herpes is highly contagious it is very difficult to control an outbreak. If one has some kind of sores they should avoid sexual contact with someone else completely till the sores are investigated and their source is known. Condoms cannot prevent the spread of genital herpes. People who have contracted genital herpes will always be a potential threat to a healthy person even if they are under medication. Hence an infected person should always use condoms to lower the risk of spreading genital herpes to someone else.
