      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?

It is not necessary you got it from saliva, if you had sex, you could have got it from sex even with condoms or if someone give you oral.

Theoretically it is also possible to autoinnocolate with high probability in the first 6 months of primary infection but there are rare reports even after 6 months

Maybe it was the other way around you transmitted from touching your genital then touching your mouth. In both cases you must have got from someone lately. If you had sex you could have gotten it in both location at the same time. If you never had sex, I would say your case is not normal

I would say most likely you got it from sex. Condoms don't protect 100% unfortunately, the virus sheds anywhere in the boxers area and skin to skin friction during sex can transmit it. Most likely scenario. If you touched your genitals sores with fingers and touched your mouth later without washing hands it could auto inoculate. 

That you used saliva before 2 days of genital outbreak is just coincidence. Herpes incubation from infection to outbreak is usually greater than 2 days

Average is 4 days, 2 days is possible but I would say less likely. Also for the primary infection you might get systemic symptoms like headache, fever or chills or upset stomach or diarrhea

It isn’t all that feasible at all and I doubt it happened here. You have a latent oral HSV-1 infection and that’s probably where it will stay for the rest of your life.
