Observing my Herpes outbreak story

Recommended Posts

Hanah

Hello, I am 24 year old and I have had Cold sore herpes for almost 6 years now. I got it from a friend's 18 birthday present to me. She gave me a lipstick, that she bought from a flea market. It is very annoying and sad but I told this to my boyfriend and he accepted it. We got married anyway. I am okay with my situation right now. I have abreva cream as my friend. It keeps me happy during my outbreak. It is an awesome product ever.

I do not have genital herpes and just cold sore and I am a left-handed person.

Today I join the club because I have a question that has always be on my mind. I wonder why my Herpes only appears on the exact spot of my lip, upper right of mind and never on other places. Does this have anything to do with me being left handed/ right brained and the virus is in my nervous system? I am "very" left handed. It is shown in my facial expression, i have always smiled with only the left side of my lips, used to chew only on the left side until I had my root canal there, and I can see my my left eye better than with my right eye. The right side of my body is not always active. I wonder if there is any connection between them. Also, with the virus being in the nervous system, is that the reason why we have the outbreak when we are stressed? And would that have anything to do with our memory and how we think?

Does anyone have any guesses?

Hey Hanah, welcome to our site :wavey: . Honey the chances of you getting oral herps from a lip stick, probably bought well in advanced of that birthday, are very unlikely. Herpes needs skin to skin and cannot last once it goes airborne. I'm sorry, I'm sure you didn't want to hear that. :( . It is possible you got it as a child, many do, from an older family member or friend of the family. Have you ever had chicken pox or mono, those are another member of the herpes family called herpes zoster. Okay no association with left or right handed , none that I'm aware of. Also no it doesn't affect our memory, old age does that :gigglegiggle: . This oral h lies behind the ears , that nervous system. It can outbreak anywhere in that facial/mouth area. Also did you know you could transfer this oral h genitally to your guy giving him oral sex. Here is a book www.westoverheights.com, also another good site is www.medhelp.org, we also have a lovely herpes library here on site on the right side of the front forum page. Take care, Ace :)

You did not get oral hsv from a lipstick. The virus dies very quickly outside of the body, so skin to skin contact is needed. You could have gotten it from something as simple as a kiss from a relative when you were young. About 80% of the usa has oral hsv, but not everyone gets cold sores. Herpes outbreaks tend to reoccur in the same place you originally got them. It is unrelated to being right/left brained.

Stress weakens the immune system, and your immune system is what keeps hsv outbreaks at bay. This is why stress can cause outbreaks.

      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
