Two types of herpes: HSV-1 is the type that usually occurs on the mouth or lips -perhaps you were kissed on your head? which would explain the somewhat unusual presentation of the infection. Genital herpes is HSV-2, a different virus, and is acquired sexually. Although there is some (minimal) cross-protection, the best thing to do is practice safe sex. That's barrier protection in this case! Herpes spreads by contact. ...Read more
If someone has herpes and I kissed her from the cheeks , forehead and eyes (not lips) will i get infected with Herpes? ..is it so easy to acquire it?
Easy but...: Oral herpes is easy to catch, because many adults have it, but it presumably requires getting some saliva or kissing areas with sores.

Would herpes scatter on my face like acne or would it be condensed to one side? I am having a breakout on my forehead, cheeks, chin, and beside my lips. Im concerned it may not be acne.
Just one side ??: Blister like lesions affecting only one side of your face could be a herpes virus, the zoster virus, but it would tend to be only in one of those areas at a time. H.Simplex, the cold sore virus, can be small blisters in a cluster anywhere on your face but still tends to localize to one area.If you have eczema, some of these viruses can spread to more than one area at a time.It may be worth a visit. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
