Hey @Chrisfoo yes that looks like a cold sore to me, high chance. If you’ve never had confirmation of HSV-1 and want it, then see the doctor for a swab and blood test.

You can only feasibly pass this to people who come into direct contact with your lip area (with a bit of rubbing like passionate kissing or children sucking or biting your lip). Otherwise transmission via an object isn’t feasible as the virus does not stay viable.

      I’m scared of dating again just because of this matter, I think sexless relationships don’t ever really work, ppl do judge and forget about their own issues...  lot of ppl around me I see their condition and they probably don’t care much about it. If your bf really loves you and wanna be with you, your condition shouldn’t matter, because love is much bigger than that, it’s not something that will kill him or kill you,  Ppl will still be happy have kids, start family... ans as long as your are healthy and take care of yourself it will just stay dormant like 1000s of viruses we all have.

      I was diagnosed with HSV 2 6 months into a monogamous relationship in which we used condoms every time.  My boyfriend is negative.  He does not want to break up, but not have sex either.  He is too afraid to do anything else but kiss.  I'm afraid not having sex will put a strain on our relationship and set us up for failure.  I'm not sure if we should break up or be together forever without sex.  Any thoughts?

      Hey all!  Can anyone advise on this post on this new Bloomberg article regarding HSV cure through Synergy Pharmaceuticals? https://www.bloomberg.com/press-releases/2020-02-11/synergy-pharmaceuticals-novel-approach-could-treat-herpes-virus
