Many people have HSV-1 from their childhood. This is usually nothing much at all to worry about. Sometimes when we get run down from things like a flu, the cold sores tend to make an appearance. Many people around the world call them 'fever' blisters believing they were a product of having cold/flu/fever, they were pretty right!

There's little doubt the doctor did notice your sores and 'cold sores' would have gone through their head and considered a sign that your body is probably struggling with viral or bacterial issue.

What does the doctor think? A bad flu virus? Any talk about other viruses?

Doctor said it was stress but he was confused why i have fever. Could herpes be identify on the blood tests?what are the other tests should i undergo to know if i have the virus?

Yes herpes is identified in a specific blood test, however it is not likely you had this test.

You can request to be tested. Note though that even if you are positive for HSV, this will not indicate that it’s causing your present health issues.

Hey this won’t happen. If you have sores keep them away from anyone. Further it’s best not to let your son chew your lips. Pecks on the cheek and forehead are fine.

Nothing note need be done.

Your son has a pretty decent chance of being infected by someone other than you in any event. That’s a bridge to cross if it happens. As always, enjoy life now, free of any dominating thoughts of herpes.

This doesn't sound much like HSV-1. If they are herpetic blisters, you are looking more to a cause such as chicken pox (shingles). Of course there are numerous other ailments it could be. If things are progressing this seriously, it really might be best to seek medical assistance.

      Hi "Jeremy"..... I agree, the topic of your HSV status does not need to be something you disclose too soon in a developing relationship..... get to know each other first....see how it's going and as it progresses, then the HSV issue will naturally need to be revealed.... it's my personal opinion though that before there is any sexual encounter you ought to disclose your HSV status.... I know some will disagree with me on this but, I think it is morally wrong not to disclose first.  This can be a make/break situation for most people but, again, I feel it is simply wrong not to give the other person the whole story since your decision not to disclose could put their health at risk.... that is simply not an option in my opinion.  Looking back to my "pre-HSV" life I most certainly would want my partner to disclose their HSV+ status before intimacy so that I could make my decision as to whether I want to take that risk or not....

      Thanks, CHT. I appreciate the feedback. The whole trauma of going through this has led me to figure out a lot about myself and my attachment wounds, so I'm taking courses to come out of this better. This girl really was my dream woman in so many ways, it's been the hardest heartbreak to deal with ever. I'm truly in a lot of pain, but using the pain as fuel to launch that new business and work with coaches. I also opened up to my family about HSV, so my parents and sister know now, and they were very loving and accepting of it. Since opening up about it, I feel way better around this thing. After opening up, I also found out that some mutual friends in our family have discordant couples who are married with children, so HSV hasn't stopped them from living a loving life. The thing is... all of these couples I mention did not disclose until 6-8 months into the relationship. So now I'm thinking it might be better not to disclose until I know things are very serious. I'll of course stay on the medication and use protection, but maybe this is a better route than disclosing upfront and scaring women off.

      Hey @Lcj987 and welcome to the website. You can be sure that isn't HSV-2, looks nothing like it. It is much more likely to be folliculitis or inflamed fordyce spots.

      Hey @JackThrowAway herpes causes an outbreak where it enters the body first and maybe a progressive spread. If it doesn't cause an outbreak at the entry site then it won't cause one elsewhere, it also won't 'jump' upon infection - it would be more likely that the lesions are continuous from the penis to the anus. Nevertheless, testing trumps symptoms or any interpretation of symptoms. The correct conclusive result arises when: you have a positive swab; or An IgG HSV-2 level over 3.5 (Herpeselect test).

      Slept with someone unprotected, roughly 2 weeks ago now. I felt generally unwell the couple of days after but I’d been drinking the whole weekend and didn’t have much sleep either of the days of that weekend so put it down to that. 6 days after I noticed these spots appear on the shaft of my penis. Along with symptoms of discomfort in my shaft in the couple of days prior to them appearing. No pain when urinating at all that I have noticed. They don’t hurt, itch or tingle and they don’t have fluid in from what I can see or feel if I squeeze them and have never burst? I went to a sexual health clinic to get checked up, they took bloods to do a full test and looked at the spots but said they saw nothing that concerned them but I’m not sure about that, any advice? The smaller spots under the shaft are just follicles I had diagnosed years ago and non-sti related.
