Recently, a video from Adam Conover, the host of the TruTV show Adam Ruins Everything, has gone viral about the development and dangers of herpes. Herpes is a sexually transmitted disease which is caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV).

This virus most commonly affects the cervix, the genitals, and the skin in other parts of the body. Even though herpes is a serious, long-term disease, Adam claims that it might not be as harmful as it seems to be.

Herpes is a very common disease, affecting almost 90% of the world’s population. However, despite the fact that many people are carrying the virus, most of them either never develop any symptoms or have symptoms which are extremely difficult to be noticed.

Only a few herpes sufferers experience an occurrence of bumps or rashes around the mouth or genital area. The following video will help you to understand the truth about herpes, and, hopefully, it will encourage you to get tested.
