My girlfriend found out she has herpes, not sure if its 1 or 2.. but the doctor said it looks like 1. We think we got it because I was just getting over a mild cold sore, and she had a cut down there (but that might not matter?).. I still need to get tested, but I've never had an outbreak on my penis before.. I've had two cold sores a year ago, but used to have a lot of canker sores when I was younger (related?)

She is currently on a medicine to help stop her ob, but needs something for pain.

is it likely that she got it from my lips?

yes, it is very likely she may have gotten it from your lips...........

also,when you say she "she did have a cut down there"

do you mean you think that the cut enabled her to get herpes from your cold sore? because more likely her "cut" down below was her "outbreak" and it is very possible she's had this for a while and never knew ( possibly from your oral herpes that you have had for at least 2 years maybe your whole life....tough to say, but its all very likely. Both get tested via herpes specific blood testing to find out for sure.........most likely you have type 1 for your oral herpes but wait and get tested in case you have both types and also find out her blood results to see which type. If it turns up she has genital type 1 its a very high likelihood she got it from your oral herpes.

Very possible, that it was passed via your coldsore to your girlfriends genitals via oral sex

I never knew before i was diagnosed with genital herpes(from my husbands coldsore)that coldsores were herpes, or that it can so easily be transmitted to the genital area.

I have never heard that 1 or 2 look any different at all, you really need to be tested either by a culture swap or blood test to identify which type it is,i am sure that it cant be identified by sight.

All i took for the pain was paracetamol, my first OB was very painfull and lasted a while, i have just got over my 2nd and in comparison, was mild.

You really need to get tested,read up on as much info as possible, be strong, and support one another.

Sorry i dont know what a canker sore is, is it what we in the UK call ulcers?

for pain she can start with simple otc's like aspirin, ibuprofen, tylenol and if those don't work you can use rx's of vicodin. she can also combine ibuprofen and tylenol if needed. she needs to make sure that she drinks lots of water with pain meds.

uk girl what is paracetamol? A canker sore is a sore that is in your mouth that is not herpes. they come up if you accidentally bite your cheek or sometimes if you eat to many hard candies. they are red with a grey or white center and are usually small and will heal by themselves.

Paracetamol are pain relieving tablets,they are a household name over here.

They are taken to relieve most aches and pains.

They are milder on the lining of your stomach lining than Asprin but can be

taken as well as Ibruprofen.

It sounds like canker sores are what we call mouth ulcers,red with a white /grey centre and very very sore.

I once read a post about what we call plasters, and in USA you call Band Aid,it's wierd that although we speak English,we in some cases have a different language.

I have mentioned before we need a directory written of what all the abbreviations mean,now the next chapter could be medical info????????????

what we call water infections they call yeast infections!! yes plasters are known as band aids!!

lol - i think a band aid is a logo name, rather then a product name?

canker sores

"A canker sore is a sore that is in your mouth that is not herpes. they come up if you accidentally bite your cheek or sometimes if you eat to many hard candies. they are red with a grey or white center and are usually small and will heal by themselves." quote from caliope.

may i add, from experience, that i grew up having canker sores all of the time. mine were brought on from eating too many salty foods; pickles (i was addicted!), peanut butter, ketchup, etc.:-D

Gutted - I figured out that a water infection is actually what we in the USA call a "bladder infection or urinary stract infection" a yeast infection is completely different.

I'd love to know what many of these different terms mean as well. Maybe we can keep exchanging info and educate ourselves at the same time. ;)

abda53 - if a woman sufferes from an active genital herpes ob at the time of delivery it can be passed to the baby and sometimes be fatal.

It is imperative that a pregnant woman inform her obstetrician that she has a genital infection and the dr should monitor it throughout the pregnancy. Often using antiviral medications can reduce the risk and if an ob is present at the time of delivery a cesarean section can be performed and thereby eliminate the risk for the baby coming into contact with the viral ob.

If no ob is present at the time of delivery a vaginal delivery can be performed - but the dr would need to evaluate this at the time of delivery. It should be noted that just because a woman has been infected with genital herpes in no way on its own is a risk to the baby.

uk girl - I believe that would be right but when we refer to Thrush it is only an infection of the mouth but they are both from a fungus called candida albicans.

gutted - Bandaid is a brand name for "bandages".

Who calls erasers rubbers? In the US an eraser is what you use to remove the mark made by a pencil and a rubber is a condom. That always made me laugh as a kid.

      To give some context I hve been suffering with this for the last 6/7 years this came about after I had varicella zoster on the inside of my body a week after I started getting clusters of spots on the top of my buttock they are not painful as such can be itchy at times but majority of the time I don’t feel it when I have an outbreak. I’ve been to various doctors who say it’s a fungal skin infection or a bacterial skin infection. I’ve asked if it’s herpes but they will say it’s not without even testing it.

      Hello there @momma267 and welcome. There is no reason to believe that what you have there is other than a pressure sore, something that has emerged from rubbing with clothing or butt cheeks and exacerbated by bacteria or yeast.  Note that the first you’d learn of herpes is unlikely to be on your butt, instead where it enters your body, this is usually within the vaginal lips for females.

      So to begin with, I am 26 and have been with the same partner for 8 years. I have only been with three people ever, one completely protected and the other we were both our firsts. I got this rash on my but while pregnant and my doctor said she was testing for it and I'm so confused. I've had two babies, breastfeed, and never had anything as much as a cold sore. Does this look like something anyone has experienced? I used fragrant soap down there and am hoping it's contact dermatitis or a heat rash from sweating and gaining so much weight.  Advice would be helpful. I'm stressing out a bit as I am pregnant.

      @WilsoInAus could you kindly have a look :) also how long does it typically take for herpes blisters to develop into sores

      Hi, it is me again, apologies for the recent influx of posts. I've noticed a slightly raised area on the middle of my top lip with what i feel are some bumps. i do have a habit of biting my lips a fair bit and this area is frequented by my teeth. I haven't noticed any unusual/abnormal tingling or burning or pain sensations. the photos are a bit difficult to focus on them but do these seem like the start of cold sores? note: I will be visiting the drs for an std checkup in the coming week. https://imgur.com/gallery/YLVA5us
