The most effective method of avoiding genital infections is by avoiding vaginal, oral, and anal sex.  Condom use decreases the risk somewhat.  Daily antiviral medication taken by someone who has the infection can also reduce spread.  There is no available vaccine  and once infected, there is no cure.  Paracetamol (acetaminophen) and topical lidocaine may be used to help with the symptoms.  Treatments with antiviral medication such as aciclovir or valaciclovir can lessen the severity of symptomatic episodes.  
Herpes simplex is divided into two types; HSV-1 causes primarily mouth, throat, face, eye, and central nervous system infections, whereas HSV-2 causes primarily anogenital infections. However, each may cause infections in all areas. 
Many people infected with HSV-2 display no physical symptoms—individuals with no symptoms are described as asymptomatic or as having subclinical herpes.
