Herpes type 1 in the genital area :?

What would one expect from this in terms of reccurance and severity?

What is the best course of action? Is it better to build the immune system or just wait and see if it reccurs?? If so what products are best to take?

Another question - is it possible to get the same type in both areas i.e. in the genitals and orally -on the face at the same time? Could the virus therefore habitat in that area people describe as behind the ear and at the bottom of the spine (i guess).

Hi John.

I suspect the same thing happened to me about 2 months ago through getting oral sex and kissing. I heard it is rare, but some have claimed it happened to them. Are you diagnosed with anything yet, or do you just suspect having them in both areas?

What are your symptoms?

You can look at some of my old posts to see all of mine. I have yet to show any sores yet, but I have lots of tingling and twitching

Well, here's what I know based on all the research I've done on the web and some info I was told by a doctor: You could get HSV1 and/or HSV2 on the genitals or orally. The virus(s) remain in your body for life, much as the chicken pox virus does. Outbreaks can occur at any time or never at all however, general consensus seems to be that HSV1 outbreaks are less frequent than HSV2. The viruses can spread from skin-to-skin contact (usually from the site of a current or previous lession...the probability of spreading the virus while having sex during an outbreak could be high but it is also possible to spread the virus when there is no outbreak (called viral shedding).

Probably the worst place the virus can spread to is the eyes (you can go blind). If a woman has an outbreak while birthing, its possible to spread the virus to the baby with deadly consequences (therefor, C-Section is sometimes performed)If you touch an infected area with your hands, wash your hands afterwards with soap and water.

Coarse of action depends on the number of outbreaks you have and the status of your sexual partner(s). Always use safe sex (use a condom), even for oral sex. If you have herpes or suspect you have it, you should let your partner know. Lysine supplements reduce the possibiltiy of spreading and reoccurance/severity of outbreaks. There are also Immunity boosters and antiviral drug therapies to reduce the occurance of outbreaks. Basically, keep your immune system healthy with exercise and diet.

      Hi @Anxious 1234 Did you get diagnosis for this?

      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti

      Hi @Luna 01 I really feel it is worthwhile obtaining a proper Herpeselect test given the outcomes of the home panel test. Regardless, your current symptoms are almost certainly not related to herpes. Hopefully, your doctor can assist in resolving these.
