Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Herpes is a disease caused by the herpes virus and is characterized by the appearance of blisters and dry skin. Infection from this virus can cause skin abnormalities on the face, mouth, body and genitals. In more detail, there are various types of herpes viruses, such as herpes simplex virus type 1, type 2 and varicella zoster virus. Conditions that can increase a person's risk of contracting the disease are:
Sharing personal equipment such as lipstick, cosmetics and towels
From an affected mother to her baby
Have a low immune system
Have other sexually transmitted diseases
Have had direct contact with people with chickenpox
Work or do activities at school or many children's places
Live with children
So regarding your question, there are indeed various other causes that can make you contract the virus apart from physical contact. For treatment, because this is a disease caused by a virus, antiviral drugs such as acyclovir, valacyclovir and famciclovir are usually given to help the body fight the disease. But apart from that, you should check with your dermatologist first, because it is important to distinguish this condition from allergies, insect stings such as tomcat, skin irritation, or other infections. By being seen firsthand, misunderstandings can be avoided and you can immediately get the right treatment.
Meanwhile, while at home you can take over-the-counter painkillers by reading the rules of use listed, bathing in warm water, compressing using warm water, using loose clothing and cotton, and not touching or applying anything to blisters without doctor's advice. So, hopefully answering your question.
