People who have many outbreaks may take anti-viral medications daily over a periodof time. This can help prevent outbreaks or shorten their length. It can also reduce the chance of giving

Basically, it is completely possible that the cold sores you have been getting are in fact both HSV-1 and HSV-2 related. (i.e. if you swabbed each one as it came, you might find some mostly HSV-1 and some HSV-2) When they say the tests just show you have come into contact with it and you don't necessarily 'have' it, I am a little confused about what they meant - once you're testing positive you are infected (your body has seroconverted and is producing antibodies to HSV-
