he horse herpes that has plagued Arizona equine for more than a month has been contained, according to the Arizona Department of Agriculture.

In mid-May, the ADA announced that an Arizona horse tested positive for the Equine Herpes Virus.

The horse, ADA officials say, probably contracted the disease at the National Cutting Horse Association's Western National Championships held in Ogden, Utah April 30-May 8. Health officials in other states in the West -- Utah, Idaho, Colorado, California, and New Mexico -- also reported suspected cases of horse herpes infection in horses that were at the Ogden event.

The symptoms of horse herpes may include a fever, nasal discharge, "wobbly gait," hind-end weakness, dribbling of urine, and diminished tail tone. According to the Department of Agriculture, transmission of horse herpes occurs by direct or indirect contact with infective nasal discharges, aborted fetuses, placentas, or placental fluids.

In total, the herpes outbreak infected 90 horses in 10 states, 14 of which were in Arizona.

At the time of the outbreak, Acting State Veterinarian Dr. John Hunt told New Times he recommends that any horse with symptoms be placed in isolation, which led to the closure of the Horseshoe Park & Equestrian Centre in Queen Creek.

The isolation of suspect horses, health officials say, is what helped contain the virus.

Herpes genitalis is probably the most popular std's. This extremely contagious disease a result of the Herpes simplex causes painful sores to show up around the genitals. There is no known cure and it'll live in your body causing occasional outbreaks throughout all your life. Whilst it may be there forever completely, there are ways to eliminate herpes which might be already present.

 Yesooo, I am proud of my natural black lace wigs, but there is no way that I am ready to spend 3 hours or more of my life through the rigors of making it presentable. My hair is natural all the way (I do relax my front wigsand never have) but there is not much I can do with natural hair shoulder length without looking like a woman parading newly disturbed "Ahiaeke. " I give kudos to thoes who have no qualms to relax their hair extensions or thoes who spend up to 6 hours braiding wigs and keep for months without washing every week.
