You hear the word herpes and you shudder. You hear the word herpes and you want to stay as far away as possible from someone who’s contracted it. Herpes is a sexually transmitted disease that results from one of two types of viruses, namely the type 1 which is HSV-1, or type 2 which is also known as HSV-2. While it is hardly fatal, the fact is that herpes will often result in very unpleasant looking sores, most of which tend to appear around the mouth. It is unfortunately a dead giveaway that there is something wrong and considering the stigma that is attached to this disease, it is no wonder that most people try infinitely creative ways to hide their sores. Of course there are those people who in spite of the millions that they have in the bank, can’t hide away a little sore if they tried. That’s right; our beloved celebrities, the people we love and the people we love to hate, are just as susceptible to getting herpes as us mere mortals. The one advantage we have over the celebrities is that we can hide in our bedrooms till the sores go away but celebrities could run away to Mars and a peeping camera would still catch them in action.
