Herpes Message Board


Support groups provide information and allow participants to share experiences, fears, and feelings with others who are concerned about herpes. The groups listed here are not sponsored or endorsed by ASHA, and are entirely responsible for their activities and the content of their websites. For information on obtaining written publications on the herpes simplex virus, visit our online store or call ASHA's Customer Service Line at (800) 783-9877, M-F, 8am-6pm, ET.

ASHA's Herpes Resource Center (HRC) provides information and support to thousands of individuals and organizations each year. Please consider making a donation to support these programs.
