Herpes simplex is a common virus. Of particular importance is Herpes type 1 (HSV-1) and Herpes type 2 (explained in an upcoming post). HSV-1 is typically the culprit behind cold sore/ fever blisters. You usually acquire your primary infection as a young child, which is fairly mild and self-limiting, and then as an adult you get plagued by recurrent outbreaks of cold sores on your lip every so often. After a flare up or the initial infection, herpes migrates to your nerve cells where it lies dormant for ages and then can get reactivated during certain triggers - these can be stress, fever, a cold or sunlight exposure. HSV-1 usually presents as a tingling, warm, burning sensation before the eruptions of the typical cold sore on the top or bottom lip. These sores are fluid-filled blisters that eventually pop and then scab over. These outbreaks can be accompanied by fever, malaise and headache. Then once your immune system has fought off the infection - it goes back to its ‘dormant’ state until the next reactivation. While most people can cope with HSV infections, patients with a compromised immune system (such as HIV, cancer, diabetes, or autoimmune conditions) can suffer much more severe infections that require medical treatment. Most people can get through a standard HSV infection and there are creams that can help shorten the duration of symptoms. In more serious infections of HSV, oral antiviral are needed. So remember - you never get rid of the Herp - and don’t be that person who chooses to kiss everyone with a raging cold sore.

To celebrate #LGBTHistoryMonth , we're sharing works by LGBT+ artists in our collection.
Joan Eardley, 'Children and Chalked Wall No. 2', 1963.
Born in Sussex in 1921, Eardley studied at Glasgow School of Art from 1940–1943 and remained in Scotland up until her untimely death from cancer at the age of 42. Here Eardley depicts two Glasgow street urchins, a common subject in her work, loitering in front of a wall plastered with graffiti. The figures of the children are shifted to the lower-hand section of the composition so that Eardley can lavish attention on the graffiti-covered brownstone wall, punctuated by bursts of colour from the collaged material stuck directly to the canvas.

This current chapter of my life has called on embracing the fullness of who I am and courageously stepping closer to the truth and essence of my inherent nature. A sobering and empowering stripping away of so many layers and a revealing of so much more. I’ve lost quite a few followers. I’ve gained a fuck ton of FREEDOM. And I wouldn’t change or trade a thing. .
If you’re still around, if you’re new:
I’m so damn thankful for you. .
