Herpes simplex is readily spread through contact sports like wrestling, and sun exposure, emotional stress, and fever can trigger a recurrence.

Although acyclovir helps reduce recurrent episodes, physicians need to identify infected athletes early and remove them from sports when contagion is likely. Verf.-Referat
