      I'd keep in mind the fact that AAVs produce an immune response.  So if you get this DIY thing, it may later be more difficult to benefit from the actual cure.  Dr. Jerome at FHC confirmed that, if you have been exposed to AAV, making it work on you again may require immune suppressants, etc.  FHC is using AAVs as well.

      Hey @lar26 - well @Surfersparadise didn't read what you or I wrote. The situation is well beyond whether disclosure is an issue so it is not relevant in this context. It is a bit rich I have to say in receiving a lecture from someone with herpes who has not disclosed themselves for the bulk of their life. This is about making a rational decision on the basis of facts of the risks and what it means in a whole of life context. The odds are not an issue for the true decision your partner needs to make. If your partner cannot accept you as a person with HSV-1 orally, then sadly they can't and they are hence not the person for you. Unless someone is prepared to accept you for all that you are completely, then they are not partner material. You do not need to accept any compromise.

      @WilsoInAus thoughts on @Surfersparadise? I read up on an article that said risk of transmission while on antivirals is 1%. Combined with lysine, I haven't had an outbreak in forever.

So I went to the doctor yesterday and asked was it herpes and my doctor claimed no that it was from shaving and bacteria from the cheap razor.. she pressed down on it super hard and asked did it hurt and I said no.. but this is what it looks like after day 4.. it doesn’t itch.. but it does hurt when my underwear rub against it..

If you think you've been exposed or want a definitive answer get tested.

Not particularly but it can present in many ways.  I would trust a doctor who saw it in person over responses on this board any day.  
 

I would consider a blood test in about 6 weeks just to confirm your status regardless.
