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.

      @srinivas thank you for the suggestion. Are you on antivirals? How long have you had HSV? How well do you feel now that you are taking the supplements?

      It doesnt really mean much yet. They still dont know if the herpes is taking advantage of a diseased brain or causing the disease. Furthermore, there is evidence that Alzheimer's might be caused by oral spirochete disease and even Lyme. Many of you could have oral Spirochetes but the Lyme and is less likely. https://globallymealliance.org/pathogen-cause-alzheimers-disease/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5008232/ https://newsblog.drexel.edu/2016/02/10/do-infections-cause-alzheimers-disease/   Of course it could be both! Maybe having hsv-1 and oral spirochetes quadruples the risk.  In my opinion the spirochete theory sounds more likely and its hard to dismiss neurosurgeons and caretakers getting Alzheimers from a disease that was previously thought to be non contagious. I'd worry more about Spirochetes.

      I wonder if people in the military are tested for hsv, because the general public isn’t. You have to specifically ask for it and many doctors don’t even see the point because it’s “so common”. It’s very possible he has it and has no symptoms or very mild random symptoms. Sorry to hear what you’re dealing with. It seems like women’s symptoms are worse than men’s.

      No that’s not the issue at all. The absolute vast majority of nerve pain is not caused by herpes. Hence it cannot be used to reverse engineer a diagnosis of herpes. That is exceptinally dangerous and we must do all we can encourage proper diagnosis.
