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'.

      Has anyone tried Longdanxiegan (LDXGFG) as a treatment? There seems to be scientific evidence of great results in animal trials. This is the link to the study https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1028455916000322. It is a Traditional Chinese Medicine formula that now has won some scientific attention. I have previous experience using Traditional Chinese Medicine for improving symptoms of another rare diseases I suffer and, seeing this has been backed by some research, I am considering giving it a try. Thanks to all contributors to this forum for all the valuable information shared.

      Wow this is very sad that this man committed suicide from hsv. We've all been there with depressive states. I think the numbers are accurate...no more than 15% have hsv2. Every forum I join, its low numbers compared to other diseases.

      Me either. I got it from someone I truly cared about and in my experience it’s been hell because I was so hurt over the fact that he put my health at risk without even caring of the consequences because I was so good to him. He was in college starving so I would offer to buy him groceries, I would always be there when he was having a tough time and give him encouragement, and in the end he ignores me but still can go out and party. So maybe I was better off catching it from someone I didn’t care about. Maybe then i wouldn’t be as emotional over it. I feel like if I would’ve just got it from a one night stand I could be like oh yeah well shit happens, but getting it from someone I would’ve done anything for just ain’t fair because I was good to him and I know some people may not know they have it but he was sleeping with multiple women but acting like he wasn’t. If we’re having sex you should care about me enough to let me know what’s going on so I won’t sleep with you anymore if you’re wilding out that crazy but whatever.
