Hsv1 since childhood now diagnosed with HSV2 could this be? Im scared

Recommended Posts

gal24

Hi to someone out there... Ive read so many research articles, but im still scared. Ive had HSV 1 since I was young, but now the Dr says I have a HSV2. I have never had symptoms, just a constant outbreaks or oral blisters. . the test was called Herpes Simplex, it was blood test. Ive read that HSV1 and HSV2 share the same DNA and that blood test only show antibodies.

Could I have HSV 2 genital herpes or is it possiable I have HSV2 Oral?

How could I have HSV2.. my partner has never had either and he gets tested all the time..

Im scared.. I might give something to him.. HELP!!

the blood test says greater than .5 for hsv1 and hsv2. but its was herpes simplex not the accurate test.. ?? please help

i had herpes since i was a kid, i dont no were i got it from...but i got a picture from age 6 or 7 with the stuff around my lips...in fact most of my pictures have that on them...my sister also has it (she is mentally disabled) which is even worse, but for some reason her immune system is really REALLY STRONG...and her outbreaks heal really fast. I got shingles at 17...and about 5 months ago i had like this rash or something around my bung hole...lol i dont no if it was herpes but i did get a headache and lymph nod increase before they popped up...i sent a pic to a doc and he said it looked like bacteria...maybe cuz it was hot a sweaty down there loool

anyway just take it easy, dont be scared it is not the end of the world...i think i have an idea of the embarrassment you probably went through so you can probably deal with this one...i am kind of putting of sex and dating for a while till i can get this stuff really under control or find a person that will understand...or i jsut hope something happens with in the next 5 years...hehehe

Hi there.

Here is a link to some information about herpes blood tests.

http://www.ashastd.org/pdfs/blood_test.pdf

The "Western Blot" is the best one. I haven't heard of the test you named. Herpes Simplex is the name of the virus itself. Could you have meant "Herpes Select"? That is the name of one of the common blood tests.

You mention your partner gets tested all the time. Unless he asks SPECIFICALLY for a herpes test, generally when you tell your doctor you want to be tested for "all stds" HSV is not included. You might suggest he get a copy of his last set of tests to know for sure if HSV was actually included or not.

It's possible you have HVS1 and HSV2 orally, and until you have an outbreak, you really just can't tell.

hsv1&2

I have both hsv1 and 2. I have cold sores very rarely, but have tested positive for hsv1 for years, now I have contracted hsv2 genital and have had it for a while since I have already developed plenty of antibodies, but only now have had typical herpes ob. If you have any suspicious sore, pimple, bump, or cold sore go to the doctor and have them culture the area to be sure if you have hsv2 orally or genitally.

Good Luck

      Ok so here’s my background.  I hade my first outbreak genitially about 2 months ago.  I got swabed positive for GHSV1. My blood tests were neg so I am assuming a new infection but who knows if I had it or not.  I been reading on here and other research. So I got oregano oil and started to use it on my lower back with coconut oil to dilute it.  I was putting the combo on and would use a couple large bandaids to apply it and keep it in place overnight.  Did it for about 5 days.  I peeled off my bandaids two days ago and had two sores where the sticky part is about an inch apart.  Does the oregano oil attract the virus to cause an outbreak like this in the spot on lower back or are the sores from irritation of possibly too much oregano oil?  Anyone have a clue if this is an outbreak and caused by putting the oil there?
