How long does the tingle last???

Recommended Posts

Headshoulderskneesandtoes

I have had only an initial outbreak in April of this year and was diagnosed with ghsv1. Lately I have had a new partner and have not been using protection bc he has had oral cold sores. The last few days to week or so  my lips and mouth have been tingly off and on... so...

1. How long is the tingling before the sores appear

2. Can I get ohsv1 if I already have ghsv1??

The tingling you describe is also known as a prodrome.  Since each person is different, there is no way of knowing how quickly an outbreak will follow or even if it will.  If you keep your immune system up you may be able to prevent an outbreak from occurring, even if a prodrome is happening.

With respect to your second question, the jury is out in terms of official evidence.  While I can't recall an article at this moment, it's possible for someone to acquire more than one strain of the same HSV type, although uncommon.
