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
Insulin dependance: In type 1 diabetes, the body's ability to make Insulin has been damaged/destroyed, & you have to have Insulin to live. In type 2, the body becomes resistant to the Insulin you already have, and it is usually controlled with oral medications and diet. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Insulin production: Type 1 dm is common in childhood & generally occurs after an infection kills off the Insulin production in the body. Insulin injections or pumps are the basic rx. Type 2 generally applies to adults who make Insulin but their body shows resistance to its effects & they need meds to help their existing Insulin work better or Insulin supplements. ...Read more
Very little: These viruses could be considered close relatives, brothers, due to quite similar dna and behavior. There is some consideration that type one more commonly effects the mouth, while type 2 the genitals. However, given human behavior, there are many chances for type 1 to attack the genitals and type two to end up in the oral region. ...Read more
Why you need insulin: Dm1 results because body can't make insulin, possibly due to a viral infections destroying the insulin-producing cells of pancreas, thus Insulin must be given. Little genetic compoment. Dm2 has a high genetic component and is related to Insulin resistance. Fat make body more resistant and the pancreas "tires out" trying to compensate. Diet, exercise, meds, later Insulin usually treat. ...Read more
No: Type 2 diabetes is an Insulin resistant form of diabetes. Many but not all persons with type 2 end up on Insulin over time because their bodies lose the ability to make enough Insulin to meet their needs. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the body attacks the cells in the pancreas that make insulin. It is therefore an Insulin deficient form and always requires Insulin therapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Diabetes: Type 1 dm results from the body's failure to produce insulin, and requires the person to inject Insulin or wear an Insulin pump. Type 2 dm results from Insulin resistance, a condition in which cells fail to use Insulin properly, sometimes combined with an absolute Insulin deficiency. This form was previously referred to as non insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (niddm) or "adult-onset diabetes". ...Read more
Very different: Both types of diabetes are characterized by high blood glucose levels. Type i diabetes is caused by a failure of the islet cells in the pancreas to produce insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is required to get glucose into the cells. In type ii diabetes, the pancreas produces Insulin but the cells don't use the Insulin in a normal fashion. This is sometimes called Insulin resistance. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Apples vrs oranges: Both can cause long-term disability, but i think both can have excellent outcomes if treated expertly, in concert with a conscientious pt. Being a neurologist, cannot comment more on diabetes, but these days, the treatment and understanding of ms is amazing, and with the newer oral meds, most pts will likely have a far better outcome. So, both areas are advancing rapidly, and optimism is real. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Autoimmune Dz: Type 1 diabetes mellitus (dm 1) is disease in which the beta cell of the pancreas, which produce insulin, have been destroyed by, usually in childhood. It is thought to be a result of the immune response of the body rather than the virus itself that does it. After onset, the patient no longer makes enough Insulin and will require Insulin for life. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had herpes type 1 and 2 test which came negative. After 2 months I have itchy and mild testical pain.Im worried any one please tell me what is wrong?
How contagious can type 2 herpes can be and spreads to other family members ?Its asymptomatic one , any preventions ?
Type specific = good: Type specific herpes tests are great at distinguishing between type 1 & 2. Rarely if someone is highly positive for type 1 w/ a very low positive for type 2, we believe it could be a false positive, even with type specific tests, which are the best tests out there to screen for herpes. If u have a genital sore, immediately see a doc for a swab which reliably distinguishes type 1&2, if positive. ...Read more
If my partner and i are both herpes simplex type one and we had oral sex. Could we both become herpes simplex type two? ?
Location change only: Herpes simplex type 1&2 are two different strains of the virus in the same family (chicken pox is actually a herpes virus too). It used to be a big deal having type 1(oral) vs 2 (genital) but the sexual revolution had changed this perception a bit--type 1 can be down below and type 2 can occur above, but one does not change into another. Live well, live safely, and protect yourself. Good luck. ...Read more
Can I use more than one anti-viral for herpes simplex type 2 at te same time? How this can affect my health?
Poly-antiviral tx?: Most cases of hsv will resolve on their own but will resolve more quickly w/antiviral therapy. Abreva otc may work altho we see frequent rapid relapse. Almost all hsv is susceptible to Acyclovir (& its family of agents). Using these 2 together is probably ok. Using 2 Acyclovir derivatives together will just cost you $$$. There currently no other oral agents/effective topical agents..Coming soon. ...Read more
If I have type 1 herpes, can I contract type 2? I have started to date someone with genital herpes. I get cold sores myself on my mouth. Can I have both types of herpes?
I have had a fever blister for 2 months will not go away! I have had 2 rounds of valtrex, alcivior now taking topical ointment, not sure why he prescribed one for antifungus nitrate cream, also I have type 1 herpes. And have used countless over the coun
I : I would question whether this is a fever blister given that it has been present for 2 months. Perhaps it is a condition called perleche? I would recommend you see a dermatologist who can examine the area, possible perform a bacterial or viral culture, and give a recommendation. I hope that helps. ...Read more
HSV: Serologically there is no chance the virus can change between hsv 1 and hsv 2. However, the virus is named for the location of the outbreak. Therefore, a patient with hsv 2 (gential lesion) receives oral sex from a non infected patient can acquire hsv, but will be named hsv 1, for an oral outbreak. Only if a blood test is done can you correctly identify the virus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My bf has just told me he has type 1 and 2 herpes. What does this mean? What will happen to me if i catch it? Will it effect my chances of having kids
Herpes: Herpes simplex viruses -- more commonly known as herpes -- are categorized into two types: herpes type 1 (hsv-1, or oral herpes) and herpes type 2 (hsv-2, or genital herpes).

Hsv-1 can cause genital herpes, but most cases of genital herpes are caused by herpes type 2. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Y is it, in the past, when i had a herpes out break my partner had one too. I've had two out break two years apart and my partner to, exact same time?

Herpes gladiatorum refers to when hsv-1 is spread to the neck, face, or arms. This usually occurs in athletes who have close contact with one another, such as wrestlers (hence the "gladiatorum"). ...Read more
How likely am i to get herpes from a friends that i let use my chapstick && she smoked off me too ? She has type 1&2
Possible: I'm more worried about the chapstick than the cigarette. Smoking is short intermittent touches to your lips, less likely for transmission. On the other hand, if she infected your chapstick and then you used it and it sat with virus on your lips for hours - not so good. I would be very aware of any lesions that even feel like they are developing, as there are antivirals that can be used. ...Read more
Herpes simplex: Herpes simplex is a virus that you catch from someone who is infected with it. Most transmission occurs when persons shed virus but lack lesions. Usually skin-skin, skin-mucosa contact. Hsv is inactivated promptly at room temperature. Aerosol or fomitic spread unlikely. Infection occurs via inoculation onto susceptible mucosal surface or break in skin. ...Read more
Herpes 2: This is impossible to know unless your 'mature' antibodies' are negative and the new or 'immature' antibodies are positive. In this one scenario the infection occurred within three months. But, otherwise there is no such test with the capability you ask for. ...Read more
