So I was diagnosed via Igg blood test in sept 2018 Value 7.0  for hsv2 i was negative for hsv1… I also performed oral as wellwhen I was exposed  I had my primary genital outbreak within 3 days of intercourse only 1 blister that healed in a week since then I've had 1 additional outbreak on my tailbone 2 small sores.

Over the last few weeks I've had some burning daily in the right corner of my mouth its been daily it comes and goes and sometimes I think I feel some burning in my mouth.Never had any sores or bumps inside or outside but am concerned if these are symptoms of Ohsv2. My anxiety is killing me as I'm worried that I could have oral as well.

I'm aware of all the stats that say hsv2  doesn't like the mouth but I've noticed recently several cases of people who have actually contracted it there as well but had both oral and genital outbreaks at the same time. 

Would I have had a oral outbreak by now with a new infection?  Would it be common for these symptoms to happen daily for the past few weeks? Can it be a side effect to the medication? 

I take 500mg of valtrax daily and am still having these symptoms. I also take a listener,  vitamin B complex,  probiotics ,zinc.

You are correct in suggesting that people with dual infections break out at the time. The odds of a dual infection without the outbreak are very low indeed.

The mouth is very sensitive and so many things cause issues. I feel sure this is the case for you.

      yes, get IGG testing ASAP, but be prepared for it to come back negative this first time if it is your first infection. A swab would be better if you have fresh blisters.  If they are already healed, and if its your first infection, be prepared for another subsequent OB (I'm sorry to tell you) coming soon after the first.. You can get swabbed at that one then.  Stay strong.  Support your immune system. Get rest. Take Vit. C and some other herbals might be nice...I have posted some stuff about that in the past. collodial silver gel or spray perhaps too directly on sores hugs to you

      No, no Custer. I pop it and it comes back. Thanks you so much for responding.

      @Franky26 your vows include "from this day forth" - there is no fine print that grants you annulment for previous actions and certainly not for the random assortment of herpes viruses that every person walks down the aisle with. To the extent that it was required (and I do not believe it is, although this is not relevant) your partner has been forgiven in the eyes of the Lord for all her past actions; as part of your marriage vows you are joined in that forgiveness. That blood test is notorious for false positives, Having an oral HSV-1 cold sore infection is a known risk factor for a false positive. So yes I do recommend obtaining a further ELISA test. You may even try to obtain the Westernblot from University of Washington for the definitive word on the subject.

      It is pretty definite he has HSV-2 so at least you will be concordant in that respect with no fears of passing it to him. Yes, there is a good possibility of some outbreaks within the first few months, however, this will not be a sign of your longer term experience which should improve tremendously.

      Hey @WilsoInAus   Thank you for your reply, we live in north America, she did the test here in Canada, I will attach a copy of the test below. I understand your point of view but its hard for me to cope with this. I never thought this would happen to me which I m sure most people feel the same.  yes I did took vows for better or worst but I feel those vows are for whatever happens after marriage not because of something happened in the past.  i feel like this is something that is going to remind me of her past for the rest of my life. its not easy for me to look past that.
