Herpes virus is a ubiquitous pathogen whose primary infections are usually asymptomatic. There are two types of Herpes Simplex virus (HSV): HSV-1 is known to cause orofacial disease such as cold sores; while HSV-2 causes genital infections. Over 80% of the herpes infections are asymptomatic; symptomatic infections are presented with blistering sores, pain during urination, swollen lymph nodes, and fever. Period of latency and mode of reactivation of HSV is yet unclear.
