No, HSV1 and HSV2 are different viruses. You may be infected with HSV1 if you are already infected with HSV2, and vice versa, however, infection with one does not mean you will get the other unless you are exposed.
You can get HSV1 on the genitals from receiving oral sex with some one that has cold sores. It's not technically HSV2, but any type of herpes that occurs on the genitals gets called 'genital herpes'.
No it does not. HSV-1 is a different virus than HSV-2.
The oral HSV1 and genital HSV2 arise from two different strains. Therefore, even if you break out from (or are a carrier of) HSV1 it does not protect you from HSV2 -- or vice versa. The best protection for both partners is to limit contact when each of you have an outbreak of either HSV1 or HSV2, and to use condoms to prevent genital transmission of HSV2 to the unaffected partner. Kissing remains one of the most common ways to transmit HVS1 and unprotected sex or intercourse during an outbreak, especially with weeping sores, is one of the most common ways to infect a partner with HSV2.
herpes is a virus that infects the nerve cells in your body. there are several serotypes (varieties) but the most common are HSV1 (herpes simplex virus 1) and HSV2. while HSV1 is more commonly "oral" herpes and HSV2 is more commonly "genital" herpes, both can be transmitted to either location. There is no treatment for herpes. once you have been infected, you are infected for life. A person can only treat the symptoms of herpes to make the outbreaks less painfull and of a shorter duration. There are no holistic remedies that have been scientifically proven.
No, folliculitis will note cause a false positive HSV2 result.
HSV 1 is the virus that causes oral herpes which is what causes cold sores and fever blisters on the mouth. HSV2 causes genital herpes, usually located on the genitals, inner thighs, buttocks or anus. But HSV1 can affect the genitals. If some one with a visible cold sore gives their partner oral sex they could pass cold sores to their partners genitals. Also HSV2 can affect the mouth. If some one gives their partner oral sex around the time they have a break out of herpes then they could pass genital herpes to their partners mouth.
yes if you have an cold sore in your lips the HSV1 will spread.Because the HSV1 virus spread the cold sore so keep avoiding kiss to the kids.
No, the virus that you're thinking of (HSV1) causes cold sores and fever blisters. HSV2 causes genital herpes. Both are members of the family Herpesviridae, but one is a common infection everybody gets and the other is an STD. They are both forms of herpes (that's what the H in HSV1 and HSV2 stands for...) A small pimple on your lip is most likely not genital herpes. They both are not 100% bound to one area. They both CAN be transmitted from mouth to genitals or genitals to mouth. If you recently gave oral sex to someone that had a current outbreak of genital herpes, it is possible (although not likely) that you contracted HPV2 on your lips. You can consult a physician to find out for certain.
HSV-2 does not transform into HIV.
No, you need contact with the sore or fluid from the sore. It's really unlikely the fluid would get on your gum. Don't worry.
Cold sores are "Herpes Simplex Virus 1" which are highly contagious. People with HSV1 are the leading cause for new outbreaks of HSV2. (below the waist). The herpes virus can live for up to 8 minutes of the body. Don't eat or drink after the infected person. When there is no sore you cannot contract it. Canker sores are not a HSV but sores brought on by eating things very high in acid. Like lemons and pineapple. Hopes this helps.
