hsv-1 inside of the mouth?

Recommended Posts

Diamond44

I have genital hsv-1 for over 3 years now. Don't get outbreaks. I have been with my boyfriend for a bit now. We have protected genital sex and unprotected oral sex. Our decision. Last week he develops these sore spots inside his mouth. One is under his tongue, one is on the very tip of his tongue, and one on the roof. They are all very small in diameter. The one under his tongue has a small white area with red around, others are just red. These sores are accompanied with him feeling sick and swollen lymph nodes. All classic of hsv. It's painful for him to eat, even swallow. I'm unsure because it says its rare to get hsv inside the mouth, those are considered canker sores. He has never had issues with canker sores before. Does anyone experience sores inside of mouth like this, and could I be safe to assume this is his first exposure? Any insight would be great. I have never passed this on to someone. I'm stressing for him. No genital symptoms though.

Hsv1 is oral, it can affect the genitals but if it does it rarely causes any problem, you probably hve hsv2 if it's happily residing in the genital area, I found this which may help:

Similarly, HSV-2 infection in theoral area-outside its site of preference-very rarely causes problems. First of all, oral, HSV-2 infections are rare, for reasons discussed below. But even when an infection occurs, recurrent outbreaks are uncommon. In one study (Lafferty et al., New England Journal of Medicine, 1987), oral HSV-2 recurred an average of 0.01 times a year in newly infected people. "I've never convincingly seen an oral type 2 recurrence," says Spruance.

Unfortunately HSV 1 can be at home in both areas; oral and genital and it can cause very serious breakouts.

Is it possible for your bf to get the sores swabbed?

Many of people get internal sores with oral HSV 1 but without your bf getting checked out there is no way to tell for sure.

yeah, maybe he had a cold sore and touched it with his tongue, and that's how he have it in his mouth? that's the only explanation I can think of. because H can pop up anywhere I've read, it's just too tricky to pin point where it can be.

No, he hasnt had any issues with cold sores before. He didn't go get checked out because he just assumed thats what it was. After 2 weeks everything is back to normal but I am not sure this is hsv or not.

he could have H. he needs to stop avoiding this and get checked. if it is H, he needs to get meds to control the virus, because he could end up passing it to you or someone else -__- .

      I believe it’s type 2 but apparently either strain can be found either end! So I will hopefully clarify all this in the coming week!

      @WilsoInAus https://forums.herpesopportunity.com/topic/8577-unprotected-sex-and-transmission-of-hsv2-with-no-symptoms/ Here they say we can shed the hsv2 virus up to 35% of the time. We are far from the 4% transmission rate. That rate is not for everyone. So if i always have prodome and i shed more than others my transmission rate is a lot higher than just 4% so please stop spreading false information.

      Unsure whether this is something to be worried about or not. Coming up to 3 weeks now. I’ve been to a sexual health clinic and they said there’s nothing to worry about. I haven’t had sex in 6 months I’ve also never done it without a comdom. There is no fluid in them even when I’ve tried to squeeze them. There’s also 2 of them near my belly button
