HOnestly, this does NOT sound like herpes in your mouth to me. HSV 2 orally is a very quiet infection – it doesn’t like being there and it rarely replicates there. So it is hard for me to imagine that you could settle down the genital activity, where HSV 2 really likes to me, and that the oral stuff would be both persistent and active. Just doesn’t fit well with what we know about herpes. You could do a PCR swab of mouth and see – if the virus IS truly active there persistently, then one would expect a PCR to be positive, right? And it seems that might be true on or off meds.
Did you have a sexual contact just prior to your initial outbreak in May when you believe you were infected or do you believe you were infected well before that?
