HSV-2 protects against HSV-1?


Recommended Posts

Hey Cin, welcome. Any antibodies in the body from already having type 1 or type 2 does give you some protective antibodies from acquiring the either type your exposure too. It does NOT mean that will keep you from getting the other type since some suffer from weaken immune systems and other medical ailments. But I've seen 23 different doctor's over a period of decades and several have told me my Ghsv 2, could have prevented me from catching my Father in law's ohsv1. I was his caregiver and he kissed all of us with visible cold sores, he was dieing of cancer so no one cared what he had. When I asked my Neurological doctor about this he said my Ghsv2, he replied "you most likely won't get oral sores since you already get genital cold sores" and I trusted this. I'm still just genital herps, no signs of oral and I've tested since my father in law passed away. I hope this helps. It's been my actual experience. Take care, Hugs Aces

      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti

      Hi @Luna 01 I really feel it is worthwhile obtaining a proper Herpeselect test given the outcomes of the home panel test. Regardless, your current symptoms are almost certainly not related to herpes. Hopefully, your doctor can assist in resolving these.
