    Correct Answer
    B. Blisters or Sores
    Explanation
    Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). It is characterized by the development of blisters or sores in the genital area. These blisters can be painful and can cause itching or burning sensations. Genital herpes is a chronic condition with no cure, but antiviral medications can help manage and reduce the frequency of outbreaks. It is important to practice safe sex and communicate with sexual partners about any potential infections to prevent the spread of genital herpes.

    • B.

      Shaking Hands

    • C.

      Kissing And Having Sex With An Infected Person

    • D.

      Eye Contact

    Correct Answer
    C. Kissing And Having Sex With An Infected Person
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Kissing And Having Sex With An Infected Person". This answer is based on the context of the question, which is asking how one can contract an infection. Out of the given options, kissing and having sex with an infected person are the only activities that can potentially transmit an infection from one person to another. High fives, shaking hands, and eye contact do not typically involve direct exchange of bodily fluids, which are often necessary for the transmission of infections.

    • D.

      Both B and C

    Correct Answer
    D. Both B and C
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Both B and C" because the question is asking about the most common places to get "it," which implies an infection or disease. Infections or diseases can commonly occur in the ear, mouth, and genital area. Therefore, the correct answer is that the most common places to get it are both the mouth and genital area.

    How do you get treated?

    • A.

      Scratching

    • B.

      Putting salt on the open sores

    • C.

      Taking apirin to reduce pain and anaesthetic jelly to reduce pain.

    • D.

      Kiss another person infected

    Correct Answer
    C. Taking apirin to reduce pain and anaesthetic jelly to reduce pain.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is taking aspirin to reduce pain and anaesthetic jelly to reduce pain. This is because aspirin is a common over-the-counter pain reliever that can help alleviate discomfort. Anaesthetic jelly, on the other hand, can numb the area and provide temporary relief from pain. Scratching and putting salt on open sores can worsen the condition and increase the risk of infection. Kissing another person infected can also transmit the infection and is not a recommended treatment method.

    There is a cure for genital herpes? 

    Correct Answer
    False
    Explanation
    The answer "False" indicates that there is no cure for genital herpes. This means that there is currently no known medical treatment or medication that can completely eliminate the herpes virus from the body. While there are antiviral medications available that can help manage and control outbreaks, they do not provide a permanent cure. It is important for individuals with genital herpes to seek medical advice and adopt preventive measures to reduce the risk of transmission.

    How can one reduce the risk of spreading herpes?

    • A.

      Stay in a giant bubble

    • B.

      Don't wash you hands after using the restroom

    • C.

      Practice safe sex or no sex

    • D.

      Kiss someone with and active cold sore

    Correct Answer
    C. Practice safe sex or no sex
    Explanation
    Practicing safe sex or abstaining from sexual activity can reduce the risk of spreading herpes because herpes is primarily transmitted through sexual contact. Using condoms and dental dams can provide a barrier and decrease the chances of transmission. Avoiding sexual contact during outbreaks or when symptoms are present further reduces the risk. Kissing someone with an active cold sore can actually increase the risk of spreading herpes, as cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus.

    Can you move the virus from the location of the outbreak to other places on the body by touching the sore?

    Correct Answer
    yes
    Explanation
    Yes, the virus can be moved from the location of the outbreak to other places on the body by touching the sore. This is because the virus is present in the fluid-filled blisters or sores that appear during an outbreak. Touching the sore and then touching another part of the body can transfer the virus, leading to the development of new sores in that area. It is important to practice good hygiene and avoid touching the sores to prevent the spread of the virus.

    If a mother delivering a baby has active herpes can the newborn contract herpes?

    Correct Answer
    Yes
    Explanation
    If a mother has active herpes during childbirth, there is a risk of transmitting the virus to the newborn. This can occur through direct contact with the virus in the birth canal or through contact with sores or blisters. Herpes infection in newborns can be severe and potentially life-threatening, so it is important for medical professionals to take necessary precautions and provide appropriate treatment to minimize the risk of transmission.
