Editorial Reviews

Review

When a person is newly diagnosed, they can become overwhelmed with misleading information. 'Managing Herpes' provides a clear overview of the herpes virus, the risks, the treatment options and preventative measures. If you are looking for a resource that explains herpes, this is it! --Edward W. Hook, III, MD

This is the best source I have found. It's an easy read, and full of very useful information. Do your homework -- read this book! --Reader

This book has helped me so much. I thought my partner and I were the only ones with herpes. This book made it clear that isn't true. I'm making my boyfriend read it now too.
My two favorite chapters ar "Telling a Partner" and "Treatment Options." Those two chapters alone saved me - I was too scared in the beginning to even talk to him and then this book helped me decide what medicine I should use.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

This is good reference book for healthcare providers who dx and treat people with Herpes 2 (HSV2). I diagnose at least 2-3 new cases of HSV2 a week. My patients feel devastated by this initial diagnosis. My main resource is the CDC STD Tx Guidelines 2010 that provides the gold standard for medical/clinical treatment recommendations. I was looking for a resource that presented living with HSV on a more personal/emotional level. This book present the clinical and the emotional sides living with HSV2. I highly recommend this book to all health care providers and their patients.
