      Hey @Aubrey77 these symptoms are not something that oral HSV-1 can cause. In the end herpes would do what it does best and this is cause a sore somewhere on the lips . It might tingle a little as it forms, be inconvenient as it blisters and then crust as it heals and all look a little unsightly. But that’s herpes.    No reason to disbelieve your doctors thoughts on your issues.

      Any feed back is welcome. I get these small bumps inside my right cheek. They do not hurt or burst. They just come and go. I showed them to doctors and the say they come up with stress and foods. Problem is I have pain and muscle spasms down right arm and in legs. Are these all ongoing issues for getting virus? I am not sure was going on with my body anymore

      Update: met with PCP Friday to get a referral to neurologist. During the discussion he discussed my low white blood cell count from a test I took in February. My count is/was 3.61. I asked him if that could be contributing to slow development of antibodies. He didn’t really react to it much. With that said, I did take another IGG test Friday which came back negative. I’m at week 12 post suppressive therapy and week 14 total without taking AVs. I emailed Terri Warren to see if she feels I need to wait longer to take the western blot to allow my WBC to increase and/or allow antibodies to develop. I want to use the WB as the final step in my testing journey and I don’t want to have to question the results.    Anyone have any experience or knowledge of someone with low/lower WBC and how long it took them to seroconvert?

      Does anyone know what the side effects of pritelivir are?  Has anyone on this site actually tried it?

There’s about. 1% chance a year!

However the majority of partners will have oral HSV-1 in any event.

Very low risk.  Because it doesn't shed all that much.

If you have oral HSV1 and give oral sex to somebody who doesn't have HSV1, that is much higher risk.

"...Finally, data from several centres have shown that women, rather than heterosexual men, are at high risk for genital HSV‐1.10,11,12 A small proportion of these women may have sex with women, a potential risk factor for genital HSV‐1, presumably because of the frequent practice of oral sex.13 Among heterosexual women, the increase is more difficult to explain as sexual behaviour surveys suggest that fellatio rather than cunnilingus is more likely to be practised.14,15 Most likely, these observations confirm women's inherent susceptibility to HSV infections compared with men, as the mucosal lining of the female external genitalia is likely to be more vulnerable than the thin but keratinised skin of male genitalia..."
