Herpes simplex: Herpes simplex virus (hsv) can cause infections that affect the mouth, the face, the genitals, the skin, the buttocks, and the anal area. In general, type i, also known as herpes labialis, causes infections above the waist, most commonly as oral cold sores. Type ii infections occur mainly below the waist, leading to genital herpes.
Very unlikely: Transfer of an HSV infection from the area first involved to another area is called auto-inoculation. It sometimes occurs during the first infection, i.e. within several weeks of catching the virus. After that, the immune system prevents auto-inoculation. If someone has had genital or oral herpes more than a few months, it is very unlikely s/he will ever self infect other places on the body.
Indication are that it reduces the risk of getting HIV. What happens if you do get exposed? Does the virus still stay inside the body like herpes?
Exposure/infection: Blood testing will determine wheter or not you have a sim[le exposure or an actual HIV infection- consukt your physician.
How is it that immune system can get rid of HPV in body and can't for Herpes? Isn't HPV more harmful and complex than Herpes? What's the difference?
Good question: The body's defense systems combats infection to eradicate from the human body, a complex interaction between the host (the body) and the invading orgsnism usually is the case, in case of Herpes, the virus remains dormant, undetected by the immne system radar in some cells and some nerve roots, once body resistance wanes for a reason or another it flares up until the body fights it backSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it easy to get herpes on the fingers masterbating someone's penis if they have a herpes bump. I didn't touch anything else on my body?
It's possible: It's called herpetic whitlow. Don't touch if you see sores, and always use condoms for intercourse.
Had my first oral herpes 1 breakout more than a week ago. Am I immune to get it genitally or my body hasn't had the time to produce enough antibodies?
I had sex with a girl and the only part of my body that came in contact with her was my penis, could I get herpes outbreaks on my face?
Probably not but...: It's possible, you've just exposed your entire body to whatever she has and visa versa. There are things worse than herpes. That being said, usually the herpes lesions on the face is a different from the genitals. For more see www. Peedoc. Com or follow @thepeedoc.
Herpes started on penis 8 years ago I get 1 a month. Moved to anus 5 years ago. Now moved to below buttocks, and red streak in groin nodes. Why does it keep moving to different parts of body.
Virus spreads: Heroes or hsv comes in type 1 ; 2. Type 1 is less virulent less spread and typically a single reoccurring blister. Type 2 more likely spreads and has several blisters. To avoid either type from spreading or infecting partner should take antiviral (valtrex (valacyclovir) or acyclovir) if having blisters more than 3 times a year should stay on the meds daily for suppression a year or two so gets immunity.See 2 more doctor answers
From herpes viruses: A person can get herpes from another person's fresh herpes sores. The other person may have sores on his or her genitals, lips, fingers, etc..., and transmit viruses by touching the uninfected person. Sometimes, infected persons can transmit herpes even when they don't have visible fresh herpes sores, so prevention is not always possible. Most adults have had oral herpes, as it is so common.
Sexual contact.: Herpes infections are actually very common. By the time you are sexually active, there is about a 40% chance that you have been exposed to herpes type 1 or 2. Most people you have herpes will not know it, yet they can transmit it to others. Some people actually get an outbreak and rarely some individuals get frequent outbreaks. Limit your sexual partners to as few as possible.See 1 more doctor answer
