That's true not just for herpes but for any pathogen, Part of that process involves the production of antibodies.
These proteins are specific for each infection they are fighting.
For a new type of infection, it takes time for the body to make strong antibodies.
An HSV infection can cause small, painful sores that look like blisters on the skin or the tissue lining (mucous membranes) of the throat, nose, mouth, urethra, rectum, and vagina.
Dear Alice, I have read a lot on the internet about herpes but there is still one thing I would like to get your advice on.
My understanding on HSV 1 is that the vast majority of people have it and caught it as children and had the usual cold sore outbreaks.
They share approximately 50% of their DNA and 85% of their genetic material.
While the percentage of DNA they share is relatively low when considering humans share over 98% of their DNA with chimps, how the DNA behaves and forms into genes is more important, because they share the major segments of DNA that are needed to contribute to biological functions – the genetic material.
