Location of hsv1 and hsv2

Recommended Posts

Can a person have both types 1 and 2 in one location, meaning, both orally and/or both genitally?

I think it is possible and the only way to know it for sure would be to take swab culture tests from the sores and have them analysed.

For example, if someone test positive for both HSV1 and HSV2, one should not assume that any facial sore is only HSV1 and any genital sore would e HSV2. It could be the other way around or it could be mixed in one/or both locations.

Hey there bluefrog,

I don't know if you've seen this but it talks about this in paragraphs 11,12 and 13 under How Easily Spread in the Herpes Simplex Type link under Fact Sheets.

It is possible but it doesn't happen often, check it out.

yeah I think I have even seen posts where people have stated that they have both in the same place. But again I note that I could be wrong. But I have heard that you can get both strains in the same place. I remember cause it freaked me out when I first got this.

      Hi, I have the exact same thing and have been to a gp and sexual health clinic and it hasn’t been resolved. Did you get any answers?

      a week ago, I went to lab and get my test done for STD. everything is clear on the test except HSV 1.   Ranges are  <0.90 - Negative 0.90-1.09 - Equivocal >1.09 - Positive   And My result for HSV 1 seems to be too high    it is HSV 1 IGG, TYPE SPECIFIC AB 56.90 H ( OUT OF RANGE ) I was paid for this test (full std) everything came back negative except hsv 1, after I seen the result, I called my doctor to made an appointment to discuss this matter. I will most likely request a test from my doctor and have him to check this out.  It's been 3 years I was in USA and had sex just a couple times.   I never had unprotected sex since like 10 years. I was in USA for 3 years now and like i said never had sex unprotected almost for 10 years. Received oral for 5-6 times.   Here is the picture :  The purple marks on my legs are stretch marks due of doing weight lifting. I do have so many of them on my body. As you see in the picture, they are FLAT. not like a bump or pimple. I checked so many pictures on internet but I think mines don't look like herpes but I just want to know your thoughts about this.
