actually, many years ago I went through a period when I had horrible yeast infections like every other month. and I also have gotten what looked like friction burns, but not often. I’ve always had them checked out, but was always sent on my way with just some topical cream. i do have some redness now, and what looks like a small friction burn. (1) can having the sexual contact I described in my original post bring about an outbreak from an old infection and (2) if we are both have hsv2 and hsv 1 (and assuming that we are free of other diseases and enter an exclusive relationship), can we have oral, vaginal, anal sex without causing more outbreaks (i.e. no risk of aggravating or further spreading the outbreaks to other parts of my body or his body)?
