Both herpes viruses: The "old"teaching was that HPV1 was always above the belt and that HPV2 was always below the belt. With more oral sexual activity that doesn't hold. We have very few successful antiviral a but we do have for the herpes class viruses. There are different doses for treatment and for suppression. Speak to your doc!
