Thank you very much for the reply and great service.
So it sounds like it’s possible to spread herpes via sharing utensils or cup but very unlikely given what you have seen and heard. Does Herpes live in saliva or is it just on the skin?
As for your comment about catching HSV 2 in the mouth region, HSV-2 typically sheds more frequently than HSV-1, correct? Would more outbreaks occur in the mouth if you happen to catch HSV-2 there? Also, I’m wondering about what you are saying that it stays there. If people catch either HSV genitally, it can move up to the mouth region, right? Strange that it does not do the reverse.
Thanks again and happy Sunday.
