is it possible to have an oral and genital OB of HSV1 at the same time?

Recommended Posts


Hi folks - I don't know if I'm being paranoid but I am in the midst of a small OB in my nether regions (yet again, seriously, this is getting so old!) and while I have never actually had anything that I think could be a cold sore, I now have a very small blister (or blister look alike) on the inside of my upper lip... it's entirely possible that this came from burning my mouth on food last night so I'm trying not to unnecessarily jump to conclusions but given that the virus clearly has a life of it's own, nothing would surprise me anymore... has anyone on this board with HSV1 every had it manifest itself in both places? and if you have, have you ever had that happen at once? I guess I thought that having it in one place generally provided some level of protection of it surfacing elsewhere in the body...

but perhaps that's still wishful thinking... sigh...

I'm curious too. I'm not having an OB, but noticed that I have some super tiny bumps and dry skin in the corner of my mouth.

Isn't it rare to have both genital and oral H? Am I just being paranoid?

I don't want to be scared to kiss someone. Eh.

I really hope not... it's bad enough that I'm plagued with the near constant OB down under, I'd really prefer to not have it surface on my lips as well... I'm beginning to wonder who I pissed off in my last life ;-)

Try a Lysine supplement for cold sores

      PesPes, there is no cure. You can treat symptoms and try to prevent outbreaks, but you will always have the virus and be able to pass it along. There is NO CURE at this point.

      Based on the sheet below, it would be around 10% per year without condoms with no active outbreaks. With condoms, 5.2% and condoms and antiviral therapy combined around 1.5-2.5%  https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf

      So is there anyone that has tried this for which Valtrex/Acyclovir/Famvir doesn't work and have constant symptoms and problems?   It's expensive but if like 1 pill a week would work it would be worth it.....Trying to figure out if this works for people that the current AV's don't...

      OMG she is great! Thank you!    Ps.: I am also a big fan of Ella  I found her last month and since then my life changed! I am finally not any more ashamed of having herpes and I am ready to talk about it with friends and family! YES!

      Hi just wanted to share someone I found on Youtube who I think gives really good and honest herpes advice. She is an STD life coach who has had genital herpes for 9 years: https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC8AkCfC9_bcCvI7-sixkLJg/videos   Also check out Ella Dawson if you haven't yet seen her videos or website. Cheers:)
