Herpes is an infection caused by the virus – Herpes Simplex Virus. In this, the major symptom is appearing of sores or blisters generally around the mouth or genital areas.


In the past, herpes was a misunderstood disease. It was observed in many species for millions of years but was treated as an embarrassment and a shameful act among society.

October 13 was chosen to be the day to spread awareness about this disease so that people come forward and take treatment for this disease because people were not coming out as this was taken as an act of embarrassment.

How to Celebrate:

There are people in the society who still consider this disease as a shameful act and do not come forward for the required treatment. This is because they do not know what kind of disease is Herpes.
