description for herpes inselfilitis
Herpes simplex (lit. "creeping") is a viral disease caused by both herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and type 2 (HSV-2). Infection with the herpes virus is categorized into one of several distinct disorders based on the site of infection. Oral herpes, the visible symptoms of which are colloquially called ''cold sores'' or ''fever blisters'', infects the face and mouth. Oral herpes is the most common form of infection. Genital herpes, known simply as ''herpes'', is the second most common form of herpes. Other disorders such as herpetic whitlow, herpes gladiatorum, ocular herpes (keratitis), cerebral herpes infection encephalitis, Mollaret's meningitis, neonatal herpes, and possibly Bell's palsy are all caused by herpes simplex viruses.
