Hey everyone.. i have genital herpes type 1, I got it since July 2012. And ever since July, I had sorethroat (extreme pain with white puss) and fever reaching 39 degrees celsius.. this has happend already 3 times.

Anyone here who experiences the same? Do you think this is normal?

I am really worried..

Have you had your throat swabbed to see if you also have oral hsv? Did you get hsv through oral sex? If so it is very likely that it was transmitted to you orally if you kissed your giver.. It could be a number of things too...like reoccuring strep throat. Sometimes strep comes back and you have to get really strong antibiotics to combat it. Next time it happens go to the doc and get your throat swabbed

hey lovelyoptimistic thanks for the reply. I did not have my throat swabbed yet.. but is it even possible to have herpes in the throat? or tonsils?

The person who gave me ghsv1 performed oral sex to me but I never kissed her or performed oral sex to her.. so I hope i don't have it orally..

If you did not kiss you, there is no way you could have gotten oral hsv from her. You should still get your throat swabbed to see if it is strep or anything.

You don't have it orally if you didn't kiss her at all. Even if you did have it orally, it is extremely unlikely for oral HSV-1 to recur in the throat/tonsils. In some primary outbreaks for oral HSV-1, it can be on the tongue, throat, inner cheeks, lips, etc., but your issue is not HSV-1 related. This sounds like strep throat or tonsillitis that also typically involves a fever and white pus. If your having this problem recur a few times per year then you need to visit your physician because it's probably an issue pertaining to your tonsils rather than anything else, but a visual examination will give you a definitive conclusion on what bacteria it is. If it is your tonsils then you can get them taken out, which will decrease the frequency of strep throat substantially.

Hey coldbath, welcome to our site :) . If he hasn't properly tested with an Igg h specific blood test, he can not say or even know for certainty whether he has it or not.. Many get oral herps, cold sores, as very young children and they never have outbreaks. They stay Asymptomatic, means no signs that they have h. How did you test? Blood test or swab? My ghsv2 stayed dormant for 23 years, I had my second outbreak ever just a year ago.

Your family doesn't need to know, only those you will become intimate with. Please don't stress this virus. 80% of the populations has h in one form or another, since they never properly test, they never know it. Take care. Hugs, Ace :hithere:

Hey jules welcome to our site :wavey: . I am ghsv2 for 24 years , I am also married to a non h man, I also have a non h daughter too. I have never passed my h. How did he test? Have you ever specifically tested for herps? I take daily Valacyclovir for supressive therapies, daily. It has kept my husband h free for 22 years. We have plenty oral, unprotected and sexy times as well. Just because he has h, doesn't mean you will necessarially catch it. Also if you have not properly tested, Igg blood test, you too could already have h. Did he type test? By this I mean just because his h is genital, doesn't mean its h2. It could be oral h gone to the genital location usually through oral sexy times. My h stayed dormant for 23 years, I just had my second outbreak just a year ago. If you two know that his h sheds like 12% a year, you can still pass h without signs, outbreaks, and you two love each other and plan to be together, the risk are minimal. My husband never has worried about getting h. Maybe see if he is willing to take daily therapy. Does he have any idea how long he has had h? Over times h lessens. The meds keep h supressed and shedding down. Here is a book www.westoverheights.com , please read all you can..Hugs, Ace :)

Hey jules, I'm sorry this has come as such shock. I know this is not the end of the happy life the two of you planned. I live a very happy , full , living life with my non h husband. We married knowing we wanted to be together forever. May I ask what his test read? Like it should have on it hsv1 numbers and hsv2 numbers. These test have numerical values on them. It will be fine. You two can still have that wonderful life together. Hugs, Ace :)

I am very appreciative of all your helpful info especially the fact of you lengthy and happy marriage.

      I’ll stop doing it then hahah yeah mine doo too they are like milk spots but these bad boys have got a lot of them in them!! I think these are the ones that was under my skin I’ll stop touching them hopefully they’ll go away I’ve never had a blister/ spot on my lips or inside my mouth so i was just been curious if it’s on my face or so, thank you for advice tho lovely

      I would suggest you don t have to tell many people about it you have HSV ..May be you can tell people with whom you are in relationship now or any future partners ..telling anyone else will make unnecessary more worrying only ... 
    • sameer82
      Stop picking them or poping them and see does it goes away on its own ? i also get some of these on my forehead with white discharge sometimes ..but my poping them it spreads to more area of skin ..
