This year’s biggest Coachella surprise may have been herpes

Some Coachella fest goers may have gone home with more than just a t-shirt, sunburn, and memories.

As TMZ notes, HerpAlert — a website that allows people to send images of whatever they have going on in for clinical evaluation and then, if needed receive prescription treatment in just a few hours — saw a spike in patients in and around Indio this month along with LA, San Diego, and Orange County.

Between April 12 and April 21, the time of Weekend One and Weekend Two, the company had about 250 herpes cases per day, a big increase from a normal day when they see about 12 cases.

The previous record for the company was 60 cases during Oscars Weekend 2018 and I’m thinking maybe this is a good time to invest in some HerpAlert and Valtrex stock.
