A 22-year-old female asked:
Is it possible for hsv-1(herpes 1)to show symptoms such as genital sores without prior contact with an infected individual by sexual intercourse? how?
1 doctor answer • 3 doctors weighed in
Oral contact: Normally herpes 1 is above the waise and herpes 2 is below the waist. So is someone with oral herpes1 or 2 performs oral sex on you, you may end up with the genetal herpes without intercourse.
