I never had any symptoms of herpes in my mouth when I had my primary genital infection 3 years ago. I did have oral sex with the man who infected me. It lasted about 30 seconds. I remembered the day of me dental appointment I also roughly brushed the inside of my lip with my toothbrush so I don’t know if maybe that caused it. It was strange because the skin easily scraped off and the area looked totally healed the next day. Now I am left being too scared to even kiss my kids.
