Hello and thanks four your Help.

Can HSV 1 or 2 entre in mouth from oral sex (rimming) and cause a genital infection on the penis glans or an NGU ?

Thank you

Hi @Janos herpes can only infect the area that comes into contact with the infected area of the carrier.

Hence if a person has genital herpes then the only feasible places to become infected as a sexual partner is where your body touches their genital region.

Hence giving oral sex is a risk to your mouth only. Herpes does not travel internally to another location from where it infects the body.

Neither do most bacterial infections.

Wilson,

Am I correct in understand genital HSV2 “rarely, rarely” is transmitted to the oral area?  It seems I have read that number of times genital HSV2 does not like to “reside” in the oral area and some believe oral HSV1 “may” give some protection against genital HSV2 being transferred to the oral area?  

Thanks in advance,                                                                                                    Henry

That’s all correct. It is estimated that over 97% of HSV-2 infections are genital.

The remaining 3% are in other body locations including the mouth. Hence it’s a rare event. 
Having oral HSV-1 probably reduces chances further.

      Denavir never did a good job blocking much for me and my derm said this is the norm. my next step is to do a few other blood checks to make sure I’m not destroying my insides and also add in tens which has been shown to reduce shingles outbreaks to hopefully deactivate as much of the virus as possible. Targeting lower back and thighs for this  disclaimer is that I’ve had no positive tests from wb igg culture or dna pcr so going off of visual diagnosis with md and fact I never responded to fungal and bacterial treatments over the course of a year .

      Yeah I'd love to get a line on somewhere cheaper to get this. There has to be somewhere you'd think...I"m anxious to try it with Valtrex.

      Approaching my first week of amena valtrex cccombo with denavir as needed.  100mg and 1g respectively. Read multiple human and animal studies around safety and excretion methods vs valtrex, and a newer study around discovering contraindications for amena (warfarin) I did three weeks of 1g valtrex and 50mg amena and lysine etc but ended up with a full blown break out of balanitis and spot on my lip line along with pain.  Gone in two days but sucked. Dr swabbed dna on penis but redness was gone and came back negative so going to do another , will be hard to swab while on meds anyway as amena reduces shedding significantly to undetectable levels in guinea pigs, I have this study.   so far 100mg is superior. Still getting prodrome each day but haven’t woken up with any surprises or broken out yet.    my supplement only breakout frequency was every four or five days plus increased prodrome.  Gf is pleased.
