1- If my partner wants to perform oral sex on me, how much of a risk is it to perform oral on me while I’m on suppressive.
Small risk for sure
2- Should I take a high dose like 2g before allowing her to perform oral)
I don’t think that will be any better than the dose you are taking.
My GHSV1 seems very quite, just 2-3 flare ups all year and haven’t had one since November. Id like to receive oral sex but don’t want to if there is risk.
3- I’ve read conflicting info on transmission. I drool a lot when I sleep. Does my pillow pose a risk?
4- How about if I wake up don’t shower and I drool all over my pillow and it likely touches every part of my face and hair?
Not a risk for transmission
I ask this because the conflicting info.
Regarding kissing, I break out or have herpic irritation frequently which has been difficult all year for me. Since increasing to 1g I experienced less occurrence and irritation. But get at least 1-2 my minor flare ups.
You get outbreaks orally while on 1 gram of Valtrex – like blisters, ulcerations and scabbing?
5- When is it safe for me to kiss? Again, I experience burning above my lip and inside my nose on and off all the time.
Burning in your nose and on your lip all the time probably isn’t herpes – all the time.
6- do you have any leads to swab testing for shedding?
You’ve made some assumptions here about locations of your infections – I would suggest that you really don’t know and should get someone to swab the symptoms that you have to see if you are accurate.
