Herpes is a viral infection, which is also commonly known as ‘Parisarp’ in Hindi & ‘Naagin’ in Marathi. Based on the body parts, which are affected by herpes, it is classified into two types, namely Type1 (Oral Herpes) & Type 2 (Genital Herpes). Herpes causes blisters or sores. And, it is transmitted by coming in the direct contact with the body fluid or cut of an infected individual. It may even be contracted in a no symptom period.

I quickly contacted doctor Akhigbe regarding a cure for herpes. I explained things to him and he assured me not to worry that he will cure me. I ordered his medicine which was sent to me via DHL. i got the herbal medicine and i used it as i was told for the period of 2 weeks which is twice a day ( morning and at night before going to bed) .after 2 weeks, i found out that the herpes was no more and this was also confirmed by my doctor.
