Can HSV1 be on the genitals?

Recommended Posts

desperatehousewive

For example, a guy I'm dating has herpes. I don't know if it's 1 or 2. If its on the genitals is it definately number 2? He had some kind of culture done and it came back negative, but I don't know what the test he had was? He recently started getting outbreaks, so maybe it's not testing positive yet? Should I suggest to him to have a blood test for both types?

Either form can appear genitally or orally (sometimes in both areas too, but this is rare).

Blood tests will be useful if he's been having outbreaks for about 3 months, by which time he will have built up enough antibodies in his blood to register positive. Right now they may turn out indeterminate.

I was tested while having an outbreak... Talk about a painful pap. I only had it for a few days before finding out, but my doctor had informed me that I could have had it for awhile, even tho I had been previously tested about 4 months back. She said they don't always show up on tests and it could take up to a year for someone to have their first outbreak.

Now_what?

I have type 1 'downstairs'

I had it passed receiving oral sex from someone with 'chapped lips' (read:cold soar!)

My Doctor has told me there is so much mouth to crotch contact that they don't bother to test for specifics now.

      I like rice flour for coating. What about arrow root. I used it in recipe and it was fine. I would stay away from nut flour until you have your protocol in order.

      No, but in the right amount s it may have promise? Quercitin should only come from food Let us know what you think. If it is not high dose I would walk. I use BHT check Steve Fowkes Free book Two grams acerola cherry vit C 2g glutamine Whole vitamin like Gold liquid... I take 25% I eat somewhat clean 25mg DHEA micronized Lemon water for alkalinity sometimes apple Cider vinegar St. John's wort Idol iodine I was very vitamin deficienct Monolaurin, and black seed oil if I am breaking out Which will only happen if I am not taking my thyroid or BHT. Zinc applied to the groin area zinc sulfate

      He was helping, you just didn't see it. The number one thing you can do right now to overcome stress and depression is.... smile!

      You are only a few weeks in, the virus is causing the outbreaks regardless of whether you eat half a piece of toast, ten pieces of toast, or two bananas! You've got to wait until your immune system is in full implementation, about a year. Then it's about not stressing your immune system. 'Stress' in its holistic sense is the number one cause of outbreaks and is that way for the absolute majority of people with herpes. A lot of people might say that peanut butter is a trigger, or alcohol... however it is not these substances that are the issue in and of themselves but the WHY you had so much peanut butter or alcohol!
