Q: 

cold sore issue

A: David, With oral sex on the rise there has been an increase in the number of cases of genital herpes resulting from cold sores aka Herpes Simplex type 1.  When a person has a cold sore on their mouth and they engage in oral sex they CAN give "genital herpes" to the person that is recieving the oral sex.  what it sounds like to me is that this is what happened to you.  Unfortunately, the herpes virus can be present on the skin BEFORE an outbreak and this is most likely what happened with you.   what this means for you is that you need to go have a diagnostic blood test and culture ran to find...

Q: 

what causes herps?

A: Herpes is a sexually transmitted disease that is untreatable. The stats are the 1 in 4 people have it. Condoms do NOT always protect you against the herpes virus. It looks like a small cluster of blisters/ bumps (like miniature zits). They are painful, even sometimes itchy. On women they can be found near the anus, or right on the ''lips''. On men, on their shaft (sometimes near the tip). First break out is typically anywhere from 10 to 21 days are initial infection. And can last up to 2 weeks. After that, breakouts can happen regularly or only once a year. You can also get genital herpes from someone with a cold sore (which is herpes as well) during oral sex.

Q: 

Would a cold sore or HSV1 show up in a STD test...Or do u have to have HSV2 for it to show up?

A: As far as I know there is no blood test for herpes. Herpes is usually tested by getting a sample of an open lesion on either the genitals or mouth. So whether or not it is HS1 or HS2 would depend on the area the sample was taken from (HSV2 is on the genitals and HSV1 is on the mouth) There are several tests for herpes. The most accurate way to find out if you have it and what type it is, is to collect a specimen from a suspected lesion and send it out for a culture. Other wise there are blood test that can tell if you have HSV and what type as well. The blood test wont tell you, where you have been infected or how the virus was transmitted. HSV does not show up on typical STD testing, you would have to order test that look for it...

Q:

A: No. And no you can''t transfer herpes of the mouth to the genitals causing the std herpes... that''s crazy. No, they are two different herpes viruses.

Works fantastic. You can also buy Lysine lip gloss which keeps your lips in great condition all year. It is the same virus. I would not have oral sex with somone who had a cold sore.

HSV1 is usually...


Q: 

How smoothly does have a cold sore pass by on genital herpes to a partner?

A: Yes, it''s possible for you spread herpes to his genital nouns by giving him oral sex. And, yes, it''s possible for you to become infected with the virus since you have unprotected sex with him afterwards. Herpes is spread by DIRECT skin to skin contact. So, if you hold him oral sex while you had a cold sore, it''s possible he''ll develop genital herpes. And, if he does develop genital herpes from that, afterwards it''s possible for him to spread it to you during sex (protected or not - condoms are not 100% effective). You would then hold cold sores and genital herpes. Also, taking a shower won''t prevent the virus from infecting him or you. Herpes simplex virus 1 and 2 causes both
