HSV 2 oral

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I started a new relationship with a partner who also has hsv2. I've been partaking in some oral sex and noticed some irritation on my lip after dinner.  Looks like a rash. I noticed it after I felt it after eating pineapple.  What are my chances of reinfection

Chances are very low.  First you have an established hsv2 infection.  Second hsv2 almost is impossible to catch orally.  If it is caught it almost never shows symptoms or if it does one time and then never again. So even if you did catch it I don't think it's worth worrying about.

It feels sensitive like cold be an allergic reaction? No blisters now. Just just hope I didn't get it on my lips

Not true.

It is very unlikely to have a 'second site' infection of the virus type you already carry. I can think of two known cases of it, one on our board and another on Terri's. Both had extenuating circumstances (the guy had sex with a woman having an active OB, which is always discouraged)

If your lip blisters or anything of the sort, obviously go get swabbed. But based on the info you are giving it's not likely to have been 'reinfected'.

      I'm not that well versed in HPV but HPV eventually is cleared by the body on its own.  A vaccine does exist which helps immunize against certain strains of HPV (not all of them), but will not treat HPV for those who already have it.  Everyone, male and female, who is eligible should get the Gardasil vaccine. If a new vaccine exists to treat HPV that's great, but I'm doubtful based on a quick Google search.

      I am new to all of this. My girlfriend has been told by a docter she has Human Papillomavirus (HP) and that in Mexico they have a cure they just develop, I guess a month or so ago Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine , have anyone heard of this. It is a lot on the internet about it. But I don't know how much I trust it.. Thank you AMM
