I’ve had blisters on my lower lip (same place every time) so I assumed they were cold sores.
When I was originally diagnosed it was following anal sex and they originally thought it was fishers and after a few days I went back as symptoms were not getting better and the doctor barely glanced at the blisters on my buttocks and diagnosed me. Since I have had sensitivity on my anus a few times yet again I take a pill and nothing comes of it. I beleive I have had a few minor blisters in the same spot but again it’s difficult to tell. I know I did when I was pregnant but it could have been a hemmoroid. How would I know for sure if I had it genitally? I assume i should disclose this part yet is it safe to say that it is very rare for transmission genital to genital – how rare?
are you aware of transmission likelihood genital to oral for Hsv1?
Since it takes friction can you transmit with a soft kiss assuming no break out?
Thank you so much.
