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'.

      Update: I plan on getting tested in mid November, so about a month from now, it’s been 6 months since lip breakout and after taking olive leaf extract recently, I think I finally have the anal itch under control, it’s virtually non existent so I’m hoping for improvement over the next month, I’ll keep y’all posted

      I think someone else posted about this. I read the same article, it's exciting news lets hope it succeeds.

      My testicles itch badly too , I usually take a cool bath with epsom salts to stop the itch . I have had the itching off and on for years. Your not alone.

      I have to agree. I'm actually...fine? I freaked out at my first OB last month, but then after reading all the information out there, and starting taking care of myself, I don't think about it most days. There is the occasional anxiety and I haven't worked up the courage to tell people except my bf, but I read a lot about people talking like its the end of the world (which makes me think "Should I be worrying more?"). Of course, everyone's feelings are valid, but, personally, I wish I had someone to talk to about this that isn't completely distraught.
