corona

A women with a active cold sore.. It looked to be healing and crusted over game me oral sex with a condom on.

Saliva was dripping down maybe touched my testicles.

Later I took my condom off and she gave me a hand job without saliva involved just lub.. She did not wash her hands.

I have type 1 oral herpes.

What are the chances I contracted genetal herpes?

Cold sores are usually HSV1. If you already have oral herpes, HSV1, as you say, and have had it awhile, there is very little chance that you could get HSV1 in another location, like genitally.

Ya that's what I have read.

I've been stressing about this lately.

Did I protect myself correctly?.. Was I at at risk at all from the encounter?

Any time you just meet someone and the two of you do not talk first about having been tested for all STDs you are at risk of getting something. It would be more fun if we could just have casual sex with anyone at anytime without any concern about STDs or stalkers or angry boyfriends/girlfriends/married partners, but that isn't life here on Earth.

HSV to the best of my knowledge is from skin to skin contact. Not saliva.

Hey corona welcome to our site and welcome to our family. :) So you already have ohsv1 (oral herpes) this means that your body has built up some protective immunities to the oral h type 1 strain. You cannot get herps through saliva, you actually need skin to direct skin contact to transmit the h. I say the chances are almost impossible. Just because she had saliva and did not wash her hands doesn't mean she transmitted herps, It simple means she could learn some lessons on hygiene though. I say it is most probably your anxieties that are making you stress. Have you tryed the Vit.B12 complex , I do take it for stress & energy & nerves health, I always have but now it comes in liquid form ,i love it. Please relax and read all you can so you wont be so afraid of coming into contact with another who is h, like yourself. I have had ghsv2 for 24 years and I have never passed my h. Believe me we have had many hot and sweety nights and my husband is still non H. I do take suppressive therapies daily to keep my shedding down and my Ob's at bay. please take time to read this book. Take care and please feel free to ask any questions okay. Hugs, Truly Ace :hithere:

you should be fine, corona. I think you could only catch it, if you were kissing her. plus you already have it, so you're ok. it's not like she have hsv on her hands, so it's not really skin to skin.

      That’s right, most infections of the one type are in one nerve ganglion. As such, the virus only appears at the skin’s surface where that ganglion reaches to.  This does all come down to the numbers though, if you have no other evidence than a firmly positive HSV infection, the default assumption which is not likely to be wrong is that type 1 is oral and type 2 is genital. A positive swab is the only evidence to the contrary.

      I was having back to back OB's and decided to try several things I had read about here.  The first one was instant gratification:  oil of oregano diluted with fractionated coconut oil.  I could feel another OB coming, tingles, and just spread the oil all over the area.  In a few minutes the tingle was gone.  The lesions and red scarring i had responded well to it too.  Went away promptly.  The second thing was diet.  A person on this forum said they had good results by eating more vegetables, some fruit, meat and mostly using potatoes for carbs.  Like, leaving grains alone.  I decided to leave wheat alone and use other grains occasionally.  I no longer eat chocolate, nuts, seeds, coconut, oats, as these r all potential triggers for an OB.  I take 1000 mg lysine 2 x day in case i unknowingly eat some food that is high in arganine.  So far so good.  Another person on this forum said she took neem capsules 2 x day and hadnt had another outbreak in 2 years.  So i do that too.  It hasnt been long enough for me to make any great claims, but the continuous, never ending breakouts have stopped, i have energy and feel good.

      Is it possible to catch HSV 2 somewhere else other than the penis... And if so does this mean you will not transmit from that area?

      I wouldnt want to give anyone info that they might decide to use against me at some point.  U must tell those that u must tell, but otherwise, i would only unburden myself anonymously, like on a forum.  No judgment or harm here.

      Could you recommend any decent treatment if you know of any?
