hi there,

was wondering if it is possible for a guy to never have any cold sores, genital herpes, or any other symptoms, and to be in a 7 year relationship and have his partner never develop any symptoms either, and yet for him still to have HSV and pass it onto a new partner?

Wouldn't one or the other have had symptoms at some point during that time?

thanks!

Often times symptoms are overlooked and what you might percieve as a rash, or pimples, or just dry skin that cracked, can actually be an outbreak...also, i read that about 40% of people do not have symptoms and don't have blatantly obvious outbreaks or any at all...so for either of them not to have symptoms that's not really uncommon. Also, unless he's been tested for everything there's no way that he could know if he had it or not unless he and his partner had a bloodtest.

      I notice in the morning several white bumps and inflammation. An 1h or 2 after and the usual burning sensation, stomach cramps, and vaginal discharge. I took a second dose of valacyclovir during lunch (i take it daily before going to bed but dose up to twice a day if i have an ob) and tonight the symptoms are already gone. No more white bumps, maybe some tiny open sores that i cant really see and some inflammation. How the hell is this possible? Can my herpes ob heal that fast? Does it happen to anybody else? I read they usually last 2 to 3 days.

      I had unprotected sex about 3 days ago and I got a single bump that has no fluid, but has a yellow tint to it when I shine a flashlight on it. I shaved recently before the unprotected sex and had some irritation prior. Is this yellow coloration associated with herpes? Please let me know if you guys think this is herpes? Thanks

      Are you sure it's not related to diet and subsequent weight gain since you got hsv?

      I mentioned in a post that I have a burning sensation on my mouth. Dermatologist keeps trying to say it's Fordyce spot, but cannot give me a solid explanation as to why my lips burns and how my girlfriend developed the exact same symptoms.  I find it unlikely that two people both have flu-like symptoms, tingling on the lips, and they both got it at the same time.

      You literally never kiss your partner?
