Could this be an outbreak?

Recommended Posts


Ok ive been living with HSV2 for about 8 months. All of my outbreaks since then have been genital. A couple of days ago I notice I a bumb under one of my bottom teeth and just thought ok I have an abcess. But yesterday it popped open and is now like and open sore (like herpes outbreak starts as a bumb then it ruptures) I was wondering could this be an outbreak which would be disheartening because I have never had one in my mouth before and thought since HSV2 is genital I wouldn't have to worry about that. And if it is why would it show in my mouth for the first time when I've had it for 8 months. I know herpes can jump but all of the research I read said only HSV1 skipped from area to area. Can someone please give me some advice. I'm trying not to get upset in case I just injured my gum with my toothbrush or something but the thought of this jumping from place to place makes me so sad, having it in one area is bad enough let alone two. 

If it is herpes, it is more likely you have hsv1 orally and hsv2 genitally, than hsv2 both orally and genitally. Oral hsv2 is rare, and usually if you get it, you get it in both places at the same time. You could get the sore swabbed to be sure, or get a blood test later. However, there are a lot of other things that can cause bumps and sores orally. So perhaps ask a doctor.

      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
