Answers to common questions about genital herpes
Herpes simplex virus (HSV), known as herpes, is highly contagious and easily spread by contact. If you have any of the symptoms, see your doctor for help in understanding your condition. There is currently no cure for herpes. Even when you have no symptoms you can give herpes to someone else. Initially, most people have outbreaks several times a year. Over time, however, outbreaks become less frequent. Remedies like GENTANX are made to help your body fight the virus, lessen symptoms, and decrease duration of outbreaks.
Genital herpes can be caused by either type 1 or type 2 HSV. Although type 1, which is the typical cause of oral herpes, can cause genital herpes through oral sex, the majority of genital herpes is caused by HSV-2
HSV spreads by direct contact. Some people have no symptoms, while others get sores near the area where the virus has entered the body. Both HSV-1 and HSV-2 are most contagious when sores are present, but it can also be transmitted when no symptoms are felt or visible.
The virus may reactivate many times. Reactivation of a latent genital HSV infection may be triggered by a fever, menstruation, emotional stress, or suppression of the immune system (due to medication, illness, etc.). Often, the trigger is unknown.
Recurrences of a genital herpes outbreak begin with symptoms (local tingling, discomfort, itching, or aching in the groin) that precede blisters by several hours to 2 to 3 days. Painful blisters surrounded by a reddish rim appear on the skin or mucous membranes of the genitals. The blisters quickly break open, leaving sores. Blisters may also appear on the thighs or buttocks or around the anus. In women, blisters may develop on the vulva. These blisters are usually obvious and very painful. Internal blisters may develop in the vagina or on the cervix. They are less painful and are not visible. A typical episode of recurring genital herpes lasts a week.
Because HSV infection is contagious, people with genital herpes should use a condom during every sexual encounter, which may help lower the risk but will not eliminate it. Even when there are no visible blisters and no symptoms, the virus may be present on the genitals and can be spread to sex partners. When symptoms are present, abstain from sexual activity.
Answers to common questions about GENTANX
Apply the first dose of GENTANX when you experience the first tingle of a pending genital herpes outbreak. Repeat every 12 hours, as needed for the best possibility of stopping the outbreak. Once the skin is broken, it will take time to heal, but the sooner you begin therapy with GENTANX, the faster your skin will heal. If your outbreak continues or a blister has already formed when applying the first dose, GENTANX will provide soothing relief and speed healing. In this case, repeat every 24 hours, as needed.
To ensure a complete healing process, continue to apply each single-use dose of GENTANX in the package. If applied at first tingle, reapply every 12 hours; if initial application was post-outbreak (after blister begins to form), apply every 24 hours.
GENTANX provides relief and accelerates healing of symptoms resulting from either HSV-1 and HSV-2 outbreaks. However, GENTANX is for EXTERNAL USE only and should not be used near the eyes or internally.
If applied at the first tingle, GENTANX will potentially stop an outbreak before it starts. If outbreak continues, or if it is applied once the outbreak is active, GENTANX will soothe pain, relieve symptoms, and shorten the healing cycle. However, for some people GENTANX will not be effective, so Outbreaks, Inc. offers a money-back guarantee if you don’t get the results you want.
No. Each GENTANX single-use applicator has the exact amount needed to work upon contact with your skin and should be discarded right after use. Genital herpes, especially with an outbreak of open sores, is highly contagious. The applicators should never be used more than once and should never be shared.
The sooner you apply GENTANX, the faster it will work. You should start to see results within 24 hours.
We recommend using all applicators during one outbreak to ensure optimal effectiveness, even if you feel that your outbreak has stopped after the first application. Depending on the surface area/size of the outbreak, you may feel that you need to use more than one applicator when applying to achieve proper coverage. In this case, we recommend using no more than two applicators at one time, which allows for enough doses for use over several days. However, everyone is different. So, if you feel that GENTANX is working for you, but you have used all of applicators, you can certainly continue to use GENTANX until you feel the outbreak is healed.
We are confident that GENTANX will work for you. However, if for any reason you are not satisfied with the effectiveness of GENTANX, we will give you your money back. Simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Guarantee” to jumpstart the return process.
