Is Is Possible To Get Hsv Herpes On Stomach And Back
What're the chances are of me giving my boyfriend genital herpes HSV 1 from saliva, and my lips not touching his genitals. My cold sore was almost gone?
Hard to say: It's impossible to say what the statistical chances are of transmitting herpes with a single encounter. If you've recently had a cold sore, of course the chances are higher. But the virus can be shed even when no sore is present. It's a discussion and risk/benefit analysis that you and bf have to have with one another and make decision that feels comfortable for you. ...Read more
There are different types of herpes infections; herpes simplex infection of mouth (gingivostomatitis) and lips (labialis) are the most common. Others include genital herpes, and herpes zoster. Herpes infection could very mild to very dangerous depending on the type and location of the body affected. I ...Read more
Unusual: Herpes simplex is usually seen on the surface of mucous membranes or surrounding tissue. It produces "cold sores" and genital lesions. What I suspect is that you may be seeing herpes zoster on the abdominal wall or back. Usually this will be confined to one side and affect only the area of skin served by one nerve root. This is the virus that causes chickenpox & reactivates to shingles later. ...Read more
I recently tested for Herpes 1 and Herpes 2 and the results came back as 36.5 for HSV 1 IgG. What should I do next to get this treated and prevent?
Probably oral herpes: Half of all adults have positive HSV1 tests, so nothing unusual about our test result. You are infected with HSV1. Most such infections are oral, from childhood. Unless you have symptoms of oral herpes (cold sores etc) or genital herpes, there's no way to know which site is infected. Be on the lookout for symptoms and avoid intimate contact (kissing, intercourse) if outbreak may be present. ...Read more
Should I get hsv bloodtest if ex bf has herpes and now having swollen/full feeling in groin during periods, sore back, tingles? But no pain or outbreaks
Probably not: Herpes is not a likely cause of your bf's symptoms. Herpes rarely causes tingling, back pain, or groin symptoms without genital outbreaks: urban myth. If he has other evidence of genital herpes, such as a positive test for HSV2, and if you had sex with him more than once or twice, you should consider testing. But I would not recommend you be tested only on account of his symptoms. ...Read more
Genital herpes, HSV -2 generally remains localized to the genital area. You could get HSV -1 lesions in the mouth. Primary HSV -2 can also occur in the mouth with oral sex. It may be that the lesions are not herpes at all. It is not feasible to know the nature of the lesions without examining you. You should see a doctor.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more
HSV 1 and 2 IgG are negative but HSV IgM I/II combination came back positive at 2.28. Do I have herpes?
The Ig M titer is the titer that shows initial infection, with time it will change to a positive IgG.
These of course are lab values. If you have symptoms then it is confirmation of HSV. HSV 1 is oral or common lip blisters. HSV2 is genital herpes. Unusual that both HSV 1 and 2 are turning positive at same time. In any event both are ubiquitous in the population. ...Read more
I had an exposure a year before, I took HSV 1 & 2 IGG and IGM AB test last week, Both came back with negative, am I free for Herpes?
Herpes results back and hsv1 came back IgG 53.60. Does that mean i have had this virus for over three months? What does hsv, i/II 1.48 high mean?
Can't tell.: The presence of IgG usually means the production of a protective (usually but not always) antibody from past exposure but can't tell you how far in the past. I don't know what hsv i/II high means however since I can't make sense out of it. The presence of IgM ab would point to a recent or current infection. ...Read more
Recently diagnosed with chylmadia a month ago. Took meds and retested. Fit tested for herpes. Came back positive for HSV 1 icf. What does this mean?
My viral culture came back positive for hsv. I don't think I have it because my partner and I never had any symptoms. Also, I have been reading many stories about false positives. Also,. During my exam my doctor told me that I do not have herpes. My ex was
Herpes simplex: Very unlikely and for all intents and purposes it would be close to a first. ...Read more
If you get urethritis caused by hsv, but you get no outbreaks or never have, does this mean you have Herpes?
Herpes confuses me. If a couple hasn't been exposed to herpes simplex virus like mostly everyone, then that means they won't ever get cold sores?
Absolutely: Yes, definitely.Get a more detailed answer ›
How can someone get genital herpes even if they have only ever had sex with people who are negative to hsv-2?
Could be HSV1: Hsv1 generally is considered oral herpes but can be transmitted during oral sex. It is more troublesome in the gential area because it is more sensitive there. Most people with oral herpes have an occasional embarrassing cold sore but not anything life-changing — that's not usually the case with gential herpes whether type 1 or 2. Meds can help treat/prevent outbreaks if troublesome. ...Read more
I contracted herpes hsv 1 from a sexworker 17 years back. After the sex I develop small bumps one head of the penis which itches. For last two years?
Details matter: Hsv 1 on face??? Or genital? How do you know the source? Was it cultured? Treated? Now you have something else not related to hsv. A clue is "after the sex"........what kind of sex? Condom? Lubricant or other material used by either participant? Since it appears only after sex it is not related to foreskin. Consider an irritation or allergy related to something used during sex or used by another p ...Read more
4 diff oral candida meds failed for 5 months. Mild case, white dorsal tongue with red dots 6 tests are -/norm except hsv-1. Is it herpes/candida/other
More info?: We would need more information: what were the '6 tests'? Did you have a biopsy? Culture? Blood tests? All done by the same doctor? What type of doctor\dentist? We also would need to know your complete medical history. Sometimes it's hard enough having that all in front of you. Certainly impossible over the internet to give you a good answer. Have you seen an oral surgeon? Oral pathologist? ...Read more
I had an exposure a year before, I took HSV 1 & 2 IGG and IGM antibody test, Both came back with negative, am I free for Herpes? I never had an OB
So i got tested negative for hsv-2 IgG blood test after 7 weeks of possible exposure. How reliable are these results? I tend to get red bumps every time I shave. I keep thinking it is herpes.
Should have: Demonstrated an immune response after seven weeks, if negative, then doubt hsv-2 infection. ...Read more
I just got a routine checkup and it came back with a result of HSV II igG 1.00 ratio. I've neverhad an outbreak of genital herpes. What does this mean?
Possible exposure: This is a borderline positive result, so I'd suggest a repeat in 3 months just to confirm. It is quite possible to have been exposed to and acquire HSV2 without ever having an outbreak. You may also get very mild outbreaks so you need to be alert for the possibility. Your biggest risk is that you could be infectious without realizing it, so you may want to consider prophylactic treatment. ...Read more
I have HSV 1. If I perform oral sex on a woman and she becomes infected and then we have intercourse can I then get genital herpes?
No: Hsv 1 is generally considered to be the oral herpes, but as you note it can be transmitted to the genitals of your partner via oral sex. You can not infect yourself with your own herpes virus — and it can not be transmitted back to you from your partner. While your immune system is not able to rid you of the herpes virus, it is quite competent to prevent spread of the virus with-in your body. ...Read more
Can I get an easy to understand explanation of the herpes simplex virus type 1 (oral not genital)?
How is the herpes simplex virus spread? Can you get infected by touching your mouth after you touch something that someone with herpes has touched?
Unlikely: Hsv-1 generally does not have the affinity for the receptors in the genital are. Therefore, although it may occur, it usually does not happen. If it does occur, the infections with hsv-1 in the genitals are shorter lived, less pronounced, and tend to not recur frequently. ...Read more
