Hello- herpes simplex virus type 1 (hsv-1) is the most common form of hsv. Due to its constant presence worldwide, the medical community considers hsv-1 to be an endemic disease. Hsv-1 typically leads to oral herpes, as the vast majority of hsv-1 cases affect the mouth and its surrounding area. However, it is possible for hsv-1 to affect other areas of the body, such as the genitals.
