HSV-1 Oral moves to Genital

Recommended Posts

Smoresandchocolate

Hi-

My BF has recurring HSV-1 oral cold sore outbreaks. He never had HSV-1 genitally. He had a big oral hsv-1 outbreak 12 days ago and I noticed a sore on him genitally 10 days after that. I had given him oral sex last week before the genital one appeared.

I had HSV-1 genitally- but never developed anitbodies even 10 months later... believe it or not!!! And I had one outbreak 3 years ago and then nothing since... orally or genitally.

Is it possible this new genital sore just appeared randomly or he touched his mouth and then himself? We had sex with a condom only. why would it decide to appear genitally after years and years of only cold sores?

Arg---- Thanks.

Hello there, the thing about Hsv1 is it thrives in the oral region while Hsv2 thrives in the genital region therefore you have more outbreaks in the respective regions that the virus seem to "prefer." He may have not had an outbreak until now because again Hsv1 is not typically a genital virus...but then again a lot more cases of genital herpes are due to Hsv1. Perhaps he had a momentary lapse in his immune system and the virus made an appearance....also, sometimes outbreaks can appear as rashes, razor burn, dried skin with cracks in it, pimples, or even like a yeast infection so he may not have recognized it for what it was at the time. Also, perhaps you were shedding without symptoms at the time you gave him oral sex...it is quite common to pass the virus on without symptoms.

He could've had hsv-1 in BOTH places this whole time, and never had a genital outbreak before. If he caught it in both places at the same time, that is definitely possible.

Or the sore could've been something else. Are you sure it was a herpes sore? Or is it possible it's hsv-2?

Your hsv-1 would not have caused this unless possibly you had an active sore, or you had just acquired it.

Oh, and I would not kiss him when he has a sore, because you could catch it orally. (When there's an active sore, supposedly the amount of virus can be too much for your existing antibodies.)

Its likely you have antibodies the most common blood test is rather faulty when it comes to HSV-1 more sensitive tests (western blot, immunoblot) would likely pick up the infection. I assume you had a culture done to diagnose your ghsv-1

      Hello.... hope this message finds you well... Pay attention to your diet , there's a young lady on YouTube called Laureen HD... follow her sh is awsome...  Doctors never told me about diet part of it... so peanuts and other junk food I love had me experiencing minor outbreaks which take forever to heal , I'm not on suppression med which I decided just to do... makes no sense to take 12 natural pills when u can take 1. ..  watch your coffee,  sugar and nuts intake ( no pun intended) The after care remedies are good.

      Yes. I have had good experience with CBD oil over the past few months. Here is my "routine". When I notice the first signs of an outbreak, pop the blisters with a tissue, then apply 1 drop of 10% CBD oil rubbing it into the popped blisters for ten seconds or so. Then apply another drop twice a day (morning and evening) for as many days as needed.

      Healing shows progress even overnight. Usually the redness is gone within 1 or 2 days, and the blisters are tiny holes (hard to even see) within 2 to 3 days. Totally healed within 2 to 4 days.

      This has been the fastest healing of the many other approaches I have tried over the years.

      Ben 21 yaşındayım ve 7 ay önce herpes ile enfekte oldum. sevgilimden enfekte Herpes ağzında vardı, ama iyileşmişti ve bir oral seks yapmıştı. Bu enfekte. İkimizin de bir şoku vardı. Bu şekilde enfekte olduğunu bilmiyorduk. İlişkiye 7 ay geçti, ama cinsel organları bulaşmadı. Sürekli üzülüyorum ve bir saldırı geçiriyorum. Her gün ağlarım. hayatım mahvolmuş .. artık yaşamak istemiyorum. Bu gençlerle yıllarca nasıl yaşayacağımı bilmiyorum. Sadece ölmek ve ondan kurtulmak istiyorum Çok üzgünüm ve şanssızım .. Yazım hataları için üzgünüm çünkü bu bir antropoloji değil
