After having regular outbreaks for about a year, I now usually get one or two a year; mostly around finals time, because hello stress.

International Herpes Management Forum (IHMF), works to improve the awareness and understanding of herpesviruses (including HSV, VZV and CMV), and the counselling and management of people with these infections.
This website gives all visitors – from specialists and healthcare workers to patients seeking more information about their disease – the opportunity to view and download the educational guidelines produced by the IHMF; to give feedback on IHMF-related materials and meetings; and to establish contact between local HMFs worldwide.
