not being able to kiss

Recommended Posts

tomanyquestionsinmyhead

ive been diagnosed with herpes 1, 2 and hpv but my boyfriend only tested positive for herpes 1. he wont kiss me right now even thought my doctor said it was ok. i feel like were being over cautious. im trying to work through all of this with him but i feel like im loosing something. not sure how to cope with not being able to kiss my own boyfriend for how ever long he feels its unsafe for him?

Well he already has it. Is there another reason he is drawing back? He can't get it on his genitals from kissing you on the lips.....

ive never had a geniatal outbreak, only a cold sore every once in a while. doctor says that its dormant. were not sure if the 2 is oral. hes protecting himself from further exposure and im trying to be understanding, and make things work

I may be wrong but isn't HSV-1 oral herpes? If that's the case what is preventing him from kissing you? Your cold sores wouldn't re-infect him. You could only GIVE it to his genitals at this point right?

Your herps could be h1 or h2 on your genital , it can be h1 or h2. H1 perfers mouth area and H2 perfers genitals , BUT they can switch places. Did you test with an IGG or IGM Blood test? The IGM i the most unreliable of all blood test. Keep us posted. Truly, Ace :)

      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?
