Herpes

Definition of Herpes:

A small group of capsid-forming DNA viruses, sometimes divided into Type I (forming vesicles and blisters on the mouth, lips-generally above the waist) and Type II (usually sexually-transmitted, with symptoms mostly below the waist).  Both types form acute initial outbreaks, go dormant, reactivate, and so forth.  For most folks, frequent outbreaks are clear signs of stress or immunosuppression.  Both types are equally dangerous for infants.
