HSV-2 is often seen in the part of the genitals (sexual organs). Someone with HSV-1 (oral herpes, or cold sores) can infect the partner with HSV-1 genital herpes, and HSV-2 can also infect the mouth area during perform oral.

There is growing information that people infected with genital herpes have a higher risk of getting HIV (the virus that causes AIDS) during unprotected sex with one infected with HIV. Those infected with HIV and genital herpes also suffer from outbreaks that are both more often and serious and more difficult to address. There also is a possibility that women who are pregnant may pass genital herpes to their baby because it passes via the birth canal.

Ocular herpes simplex, or eye herpes, mostly strikes one eye in the cornea (the front area of the eye which protects the iris and pupil) zone. A continual infection, caused by the type 1 herpes simplex virus, eye herpes can lead to skin damage and inflammation. It's mostly named a cold sore on the eye and can reoccur.
