I only get cold sores not often once a year and was told I have HSV 2 no symptoms ever. What does this mean can I still pass it easy to someone else?

I only get cold sores not often once a year and was told I have HSV 2 no symptoms ever. What does this mean can I still pass it easy to someone else?

HSV-1 vs. HSV-2: Most of the general population has hsv-1 which causes cold sores. Hsv-2 is the virus that causes genital herpes, and you may just be lucky in that you have no sores and/or physical symptoms. You may be a "carrier" without active symptoms. You may still transmit the disease, so you need to practice safe sex. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I ve read a lot about colloidal silver helping symptoms of HSV 1. Is there a high risk of getting argyria?

I ve read a lot about colloidal silver helping symptoms of HSV 1. Is there a high risk of getting argyria?

Don't do it: It's not going to touch your herpes 1. Unlike the law that applies to physicians, there's no law requiring people who pose as "persecuted scholars and humanitarians" on the internet to tell the truth. You will get argyria if you take enough colloidal silver, and by purchasing this stuff, you are rewarding people who play you for a fool. Forgive my frankness -- we care about you. ...Read more
