Medical Minute: 1 in 2 Black Women Has Herpes

Medical Minute Herpes

New studies show that the black community is rife with sexually transmitted diseases. In fact, black women top the lists of women afflicted with HIV and Herpes. A shocking 50% of black women have been diagnosed with Herpes simplex.

It’s no secret that black women who are desperate for love often open their legs to married men, single men and even gay men. Singer Rihanna is known to stay out of the public eye until her rumored Herpes outbreaks clear up.

Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and type 2 (HSV-2) cause the most common forms of herpes: oral herpes and genital herpes.

When an infected individual is in the active (symptomatic) phase of the disease, he or she presents with oral sores on their lips, face, hands or genital areas. Facial sores are commonly referred to as cold sores or fever blisters. The active phase may last from 2-21 days. Genital herpes is often asymptomatic, meaning there usually are no visible signs of infection.

Transmission

Herpes simplex is acquired through direct contact of a lesion or body fluids (saliva, vaginal juices, etc.).

After the initial infection, the virus travels from the site of infection along the nerves to the nerve cells where the virus lies dormant within the cell (incubation period). Infection is lifelong and, as in all virus, there is no known cure.

It isn’t known why the virus becomes active in some people and not in others. But once active, the episodes become less frequent over time.

Women are more susceptible to contracting genital HSV-2 virus than men. Even in the asymptomatic stage the virus is still highly contagious. Condoms and dental dams often provide the best protection against the HSV-2 (genital) virus.

Treatment

Treatment with antiviral medications can reduce the severity of the outbreaks and alleviate the symptoms. Also, Motrin and Tylenol can reduce the pain and fever associated with herpes. Topical creams can be applied to stop symptoms such as outbreaks and itching.

    @Sandra…I keep reading that an inordinate number of celebrities have Herpes. Celebs of ALL races.

    And I’ve read it CAN be transmitted, even when the infected is not suffering from a flare up.

    Well isn’t it true that chicken pox are also a form of herpes? So, if you’ve had chicken pox, you also have the virus. The chicken pox vaccine does NOT rid you of chicken pox, it just cuts down the asymptomatic period by a few days. Thing is, if it’s (chicken pox) a “virus”, there is no getting rid of that either.

    auntie IS quoting a 2010 cdc figure of “almost 1 in 2 black women”, actually 48%.

    The new estimates (in 2010) come from the CDC’s National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), which is a nationally representative survey of U.S. households covering a wide range of health issues.

    Even more tragic than the stats….

    Used to volunteer at PParenthood and I found out that ALOT of people don’t inform their sexual partner(s) that they have herpes for a variety of reasons:

    *They aren’t having a flair up so they feel there is no need
    *They feel that since the person that infected THEM…gave no warning.. why should they?
    *They feel they’d be rejected if they were honest.

    Ofcourse these reasons also applied to other STD’s.

    Taken from a 2010 CNN Article that got me lookin at all my friends, relatives and you heffas sideways. If you got it raise your hand.
    ******************************

    Women and African-Americans have the highest rate of genital herpes infections. According to the study, one in five women is infected with the herpes virus. The infection rate was almost twice as high among women — nearly 21 percent — than among men, at 11.5 percent.

    For African-Americans, the prevalence of infection was 39.2 percent — more than three times that of whites, at 12.3 percent. Black women are most affected by the disease, with an infection rate of 48 percent.

    These so called reports claim Black women are more infected with AIDS than any other race, and now, 1 out of 2 have Herpes. What is the real agenda behind these reports?

    ___________________________’

    :cosign: we’re only 13% of the population and the least insured. Who is doing all of these tests? Where are the women they’re testing? How much is it costing cause black women can’t pay for it. In order to know for sure 50% of ALL black women have herpes, 100% of them would have to be tested and we know that didn’t happen. Some so called study trying to estimate the rates of infection based on a small number of people being tested.

    This is another assault in the war against black women. The media is trying to make black women public enemy number 1 Because when they locked up, emasculated our men the race didn’t die. Now it’s so called medical studies that always say something bad about black women while at the same time all kinds of shows, commercials etc show black men with white women.

    GENOCIDE IS THE AGENDA.

    That’s always been the goal. They’ve wanted to get rid of us every since we stopped working for free after slavery.

    I should have mentioned that those stats apply to people in the 14 – 49 age range. We’re in the group, but mamas and grandmamas prolly ain’t. Sandra showin pics of Rih, but she may have her own case. I just have to add this to my list of things I imagine people dealing with when I see them. Ain’t no biggie. I do know people that have it. A friend told me they had it. My kinfolk’s spouse was trying to get with said friend. I warned kinfolk’s spouse that the friend had it. Kinfolk’s spouse smashed anyway. Now kinfolk got it too.

    i think what they do is they take a series of samplings, then guesstimate what the rest of the population would be based on those samplings. like if 41% of a certain demographic or area comes in with herp, then the same percentage of the untested ones might have it. nobody is going to count the entire population. so basically, 1 in 2 women that COME IN for testing have it; therefore, 1 in 2 that are out there probably have it.

    if we do a sampling on SR, i bet NOBODY has it.

    Hey everybody.. herpes is on the rise and will continue to be spread due to lack of knowledge and ignorance amongst sexually active ppl. If you know somebody that has cold sores/fever blisters around the mouth, do not let them eat the box or suck the peen. You are putting yourself at risk for contracting the virus. Being married and wearing condoms, will not prevent you from getting herpes. My aunt got herpes from her husband of 23 years.

    Hi Roses,

    Del Gatto this reminds me of something I just read today. They are also doing this with new HIV test stated to target poor people. below is a insert but google is your friend (sometimes)

    This strategy would seem implausible except that – since 2009 – the pharmaceutical industry has paid $10 billion to settle thousands of criminal and civil complaints related to the illegal marketing of drugs that kill or injure 2-4 million Americans, ANNUALLY – paying millions of dollars in kickbacks and bribes to clinicians that unnecessarily prescribe deadly drugs to healthy patients. The leading US HIV testing laboratories – Quest Diagnostics and LabCorp – have paid millions of dollars in fines for fraud and using testing devices that the FDA has never approved to diagnose HIV. This test is just more of the same.

    Actually i think 1 in 2 of all women have herpes and i think more white women have herpes than black women. also they don’t even test for it if you don’t ask because it is not life threatening so when you go to get tested ladies ask for the herpes test. also you could have the virus but not a outbreak so be careful. Yes herpes is a cousin of the chicken pox and we all have the virus in our bodies. No one knows why we get it just how and no one cares because you cannot die from it.

    Not buying this one at all. Why is it that the black community has the worst statistics? This is straight BS! I work in a women’s clinic and most of the people with Herpes and STDS are white females. Where are these statistics? How come we never hear statistics in the white community. Oh thats right, because they dont release the information to the public when it comes to whites! I’m sick of blacks being degraded. I’m a black female who has only had one partner, and I am disease free. I have yet to see a black girl with cold sores(Which is Herpes as well) but I see White women with them all the time. Not buying it!

    Twilight says:

    Heroes is I STD that is not reported to the health department because millions of people will test positive. Confirmation is not confirmed unless the patient has symptoms and a viral culture is done and blood work to determined if the infection is old or recent. I had a patient one day who just gotten married after being with her partner for over 6yrs. She treated herself to a nose job after the honeymoon and requested a emergency gyn visit thinking it maybe from the antibiotics given post surgery. It was Herpes which was bought on my her recent surgery. She was gonna go home and beat her husband ass but the blood work showed it was an old infection. Had another patient who had a very bad sore outbreak after her C-secrion. To her knowledge she never had a history of fever blisters. Any stress can bring on a sudden outbreak and some women have out breaks everyonth before a menstruel cycle.
    That us why Doctors treat pregnant women with antiviral meda @ 36 weeks until she labor to reduce a outbreak. If her outbreak is active during labor and it’s a first for the patient ( so she say) then she will have a C-section. Someone mention that some don’t tell their partners and that is very true since some partners will not share their HIV status. That is why also HSV type 2 is not included in the STD routine blood work up because 6 out of 10 people will test positive. There’s no difference now on the location of the type of herpes now since one can have type 1 in the genital area and type 2 on the mouth. IV seen some very nasty cases in immune compromise patients or retroviral.
    Shingles is treated the same way as herpes and that is a outbreak after being exposed to chicken pox. very painful I hear.( that viirus is not the same as HSV but in the same family) there is a vaccine now for Shingles now for people over 65.
    I hope this information is informative to some.

    Twilight says:

    @jagfine 3rd yr medical student there is no difference just the difference or fequent in outbreaks. And the difference used to be by location and type, since now you can have both types in either both location. Mouth or genital. People tend to get fever blisters when the weather change like a few times a year. If that coldsore is fequent and is diagnosed as type 2 by his/her mouth the doctor may put the patient on suppress dosage of anitiviral meds to lessen his/her outbreaks.
    It’s just the stigma behind the name and type. People with coldsores herpes it’s ok but if they have type 2 its OMG. That used to be the STD among the rich people at one time. I tell patients get a grip and practice safe sex next time because there are is a three letter virus that you may have gotten and could be taking a whole lot of aniviral meda and fequent blood work and a special Doctor to follow your care!
