Can someone have HSV-1 and HSV-2 orally?


Recommended Posts

If someone has oral HSV-1 only and performs oral sex on someone who has genital HSV-2, can the person with HSV-1 get HSV-2, both orally? I can't find online whether having both strains orally is possible. And/or can doing the oral result in genital HSV-2 somehow?

You're not likely to get hsv2 orally, whether hsv1 is present or not. In other words, oral hsv2 is uncommon if not rare under any circumstances. Whether the presence of hsv1 in the oral area provides a small measure of additional protection, I can't say.

So with what you said, you are saying that you can indeed be a carrier of both strands orally, simultaneously.

No, I said just the opposite

I don't understand what you didn't understand in my initial comment.  In a nutshell; It's possible to have both orally but very unlikely.

      Because COVID 19 has a false sense of urgency compared to literally everything else. It's complete bullshit.

      Will the drug company really speed up the research on the hsv2 treatment. So how do I do it for covid-19 ??? Sanofi to run away with his therapeutic vaccine, Aicuris With Pritelivir ??? Are there not among us who can try something on this topic ??? I personally tried. Sanofi doesn't write back. Aicuris says that Pritelivir is still in development. No information results ..

      Hey!! Excellent suggestion. I don't have a prescription for antivirals. But I think acyclovir ointments can be sold without a prescription. I will try it and I'll let you know the results.

      Thank you, appreciate your response. First, he knows which kind he has, he’s a doctor. He is very well versed about the disease, & admits he was wrong to not tell me, says he was scared, etc. at this point, it’s not even about the herpes, it’s about the betrayal I feel. We have shared so much, & felt such a deep bond. 2 days ago, I would have told you it would never in a million years have been possible for him to hide something like this from me.  I have never seen him be manipulative, & he lives with more integrity than most people I’ve known. So I am just confused, & sad, & angry.

      Hey @madman I can only suggest that your second doctor appears closer to the mark. The first doctor was unsure. HSV-1 is not at all known to cause these symptoms genitally for a period of time.  You may not have much to lose by taking antivirals - placebo or effective against what you've got, you have little to lose it would seem. If they do nothing, then at least you will have eliminated herpes from your thinking!
