Ok, here's the deal. I pretty much know that I have genital herpes now. For years, maybe once or twice a year, I get a little slit in the corner of my mouth. I have just come to realize that this may be oral herpes. First of all, everything I have read about cold sores claims that there are blisters and it lasts 7-8 days. Well, this slit literally lasted one day and there was no blistering. So, it is a cold sore? Secondly, the night before I got the slit, my husband kissed me and then performed oral sex on me. Now, here's the deal.... it's been about 6 days since this happened, and I haven't had any symptoms. I imagine that this have may happened before, and only b/c I know now that the slit could be oral herpes that it has spread to my genitals. I have read tons and tons of information about contracting type 1 genitally, and it seems that it's better than type 2. Apparently, recurrences or rare or one at most...and it's less contagioius. So, if I have this now, obviously it's something I have to deal with. My second question is, if this is a cold sore, I probably have type 1 genital herpes then right? Thank you so much for your patience and answers. God Bless.

Im not following what you mean. Why do you think you have GH now? Because you were kissed then recieved oral sex?....If this is the case it does not automatically mean that you have GH. Especially if the "slit" isent even for sure oral herpes. Please clarify so i can try to help.

Good luck and god bless

right, i was kissed and then received oral sex. this is why i think i have contracted it genitally. it's been 7 days since, and i have no symptoms. i just assume that this recurring slit is in fact oral herpes, so i'm basically wondering if it was spread from my mouth to my husband's and then to my genitals. thanks again for your help.

Ok...I thought thats what you meant. At anyrate, in theory what you explained could happen but I would find that to be unlikely. One big reason is this. If you do in fact have oral Herpes your body has HSV antibodies already devolped to keep the virus at bay. This is proven to offer at least some protection against the same HSV virus to infect a different area of the body. That alone makes the senario unlikely and even furthermore for enough virus to go from your lips to his lips, then to "downthere" makes it even more doubtful that anything happened.

I would try to relax, I know how hard that can be, but what you discribe would go againt alot of odds.

Hope this helps.............

      Yes, but every married person who I found out about that has this waited 6-8 months into the relationship to disclose it. But maybe you're right. If I had told her 6-7 months in, she'd still have Googled it and flipped out, and maybe it would have been harder then. I don't know. I don't see myself going through this level of pain and rejection so easily next time. I really don't. I'm taking the meds. I use protection. It's been almost a decade since I've had it so I'm not worried about shedding or passing it on so easily. British studies confirm that the first 2 years are the most contagious and we're passed that. I'm just over this. I've never been in so much emotional pain in my life.

      Is this herpes? I can’t find any pics that match this exactly and my symptoms don’t really match. I don’t have really any of the typical herpes symptoms other than pictured, so I figured it could be friction as I have recently been having a lot of sex with a new partner. Way more than normal. Started having unprotected sex about 3 - 4 weeks ago. These symptoms only started about 3-4 days ago. Felt burning in some areas and only some very few tiny red areas/spots appeared. Almost shiny in appearance. Seems to settle very quickly. They were only present for a day or so. Also had some very mild irritation after I pee but not during. This spot has 2 small red lumps that are now dry around the outside. It’s like it’s been rubbed off and the skin is dry and shiny underneath. It doesn’t seem to be lesion. There was no puss or any leakage, nor was the skin ever red under them. They also got better within a day or so. I still have red spots around but they are very small and not bunched together and some general discomfort but I feel it’s because I’ve touched it so much! Stressing a bit!  my research tells me friction burn/blister , Fungal ,herpes a bit of it all! I have no idea! Please help! Thanks in advance.

      I’m going to force him to get tested ! Thanks for your help !

      @EssenceL25 there really isn't a question mark around the source, it's your latest partner. The median time from infection to an outbreak of lesions upon initial infection is 4 days.  The only thing that isn't certain is the type I suggest.
