Genital herpes outbreaks can sometimes be triggered by the following:
* Being run-down
* Suffering from other genital infections (affecting the local skin area)
* Menstruation Cycle
* Drinking a lot of alcohol
* Stress and anxiety
* Ultraviolet light
* Friction or damage to the skin, caused by, for example, sexual intercourse, may also lead to a recurrence. Don’t expect antivirals to cure herpes.
* Diet and certain foods
* Temperature extremes
