Can Fever Blister Spread To Genital
Is there anything to stop the spread of genital herpes after finding out that the partner had fever blisters?
Confused: Fever blisters are usually referred to herpes labialis (cold sores, caused by hsv, type 1 virus), which is not genital herpes (caused by hsv, type 2 virus). Occasionally HSV 1 virus may be transferred during oral sex to the genitals of the partner of the infected individual, but this is not very common. The best way to prevent spread is to avoid direct contact with the infected body part. ...Read more

Can herpes that causes innocent oral fever blisters & cold sores be sexually transited to someone else as genital herpes?
Herpes - HSV1 & HSV2: Yes - unfortunately there can be cross over between the 2 different types of herpes.

Can someone get genital fever blisters if someone had oral sex with an active fever blister? The fever blister wasn't actively bilstered the lip was healing but wasn't active but did bleed.
Cold : Cold sores or fever blisters are caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 (hsv-1) and are extremely common. Most people become infected as an infant or small child when kissed or by sharing eating utensils with an adult who has the virus. The virus is most contagious when someone has a cold sore, but can still be passed along by someone who does not. Many people do not even know that they are infected because the virus can "hide out" in the nerve cells for very long periods of time - for some people it hides out forever and they never get a cold sore. For others, the virus can "wake up" and that's when a cold sore happens. No one knows exactly what causes a cold sore to appear - sometimes stress, illness, fevers, colds, sunlight, cold weather, menstruation, certain foods, allergies, you name it! they usually last 7-10 days and are more of an annoyance than a danger unless you have a weakened immune system or contract a bacterial infection on top of the cold sore. Even though most genital herpes is caused by hsv-2, we do see genital herpes caused by hsv-1 - most likely from oral sex. This is less common, though. ...Read more
