Are these cold sores on my vagina herps

Recommended Posts


I have found coldsores on my vagina, my partner suffers from cold sores on his face, he gave me oral sex this weekend and now all these sores have appeared. What are the ods it being type 1 or 2? Can I get cold sores on my vagina or is it classed as genital herpes?

The two types of herpes, HSV-1 and HSV-2, are distinct viruses. Each can infect any location on the body, in theory. They do not morph between the other type. HSV-1 is HSV-1 regardless of location.

Based on what you describe, this will be genital HSV-1, little doubt there. However, diagnosis is very difficult with many things producing sores. Pop to your doctor or sexual health clinic for a swab test straight away.

      No Western Blot. High positives with both IgG & IgM tests plus symptoms .

      I doubt it is HSV. I agree with them. If anything I would look at other STDs for throat symptoms. Make sure you are clear from everything

      I went to see clinic and she said they only take a swab if I have blisters. She was very dismissive of everything I said - I heard somewhere that GPS don’t do blood tests anymore for herpes cause it was causing significant mental health problems due to being incurable  I’m ambivalent about blood tests as they don’t seem accurate and whatever answer I get there’s still a part of me that will be unsure and will fuel anxiety   i thought it was difficult to get genital herpes in throat?But the flu like symptoms afterwards was nothing I’ve experienced before and happened the day after. Would this be as serious as genital herpes ?    I just find it hard to sit and wait for any bump on my vagina and it’s all I can think about
