A Practical Guide to Treatment & PreventionBook - 2007
An estimated one million Americans are infected each year with genital herpes. Though most are initially unaware of the infection, those diagnosed may face difficult questions about how they acquired herpes and how to manage it. Herpes: The Complete Handbook is an accessible 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 aftereffects. 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.
