Genital herpes is gellnarey contracted from skin to skin contact with an infected area. For example, if someone has a genital herpes infection they can pass on the virus to another person by touching or making contact with the area, such as through vaginal, anal or oral sex, or by rubbing against the infection. Once infected with genital herpes, the virus remains inside the body in a latent (sleeping) state. Throughout a person's life the virus can then become activated causing a genital herpes recurrence.During a primary genital herpes episode (the first outbreak) it is common to feel flu like symptoms, such as swollen glands, headache or fever. Aching or tingling' sensations in the groin, thigh and buttocks muscles may also occur. Itching, pain and tingling sensations called the prodrome (or warning symptoms) typically occur 1 to 2 days before any sores appear. A genital herpes infection will gellnarey appear as a small, fluid-filled blister which goes through a cycle of phases. The blister will usually weep (ulcerate) and form a scab or crusting' before healing and disappearing completely.

When I began taking Tessalon, I wasn't sure if things would get better, but I was nearly certain that things would not get worse. Boy, was I wrong. A little less than a year ago, I had a severe case of laryngitis. This eventually turned into a brutal cough that refused to go away. I tried many antibiotics and medications to cure the cough, but nothing worked. I eventually came across Tessalon Perles, which was supposed to be fantastic. Whoever made that judgment must have been smoking something illegal. Ever since taking Tessalon Perles, my cough has gotten worse, NOT better. If you are considering taking this medication, be prepared for this to be a possible result. The worst part for me is that I have a job where I am constantly on the phone and making presentations to large groups of people. I need my voice in order to pay the bills, but when it gets to the point where I coughing so bad that I'm vomiting, I have to begin to consider a career change. Wouldn't that be something? A career change due to a medication that was supposed to help.
