Hey Terri, I’m back with a few more questions.
I pretty much have come to think my husband has oral HSV1 because he had clear blister like spots on the same spot on his lip and they busted, almost looked like it may have bled a little. A little bit of a yellowish crust has formed? Your thoughts? Sadly, we weren’t able to get to a clinic to have it swabbed.
1. We had sex about 2 days after the lesions burst and we were kissing, opened mouth, passionate. I also performed oral sex on him. I’m worried because I performed oral on him after we had kissed and then we proceeded to have unprotected sex. If I had virus on my lips, is it possible that some of it could have got on his penis and then infected me via interourse? I never developed symptoms orally or genitally within 10 days.
2. I have a bad habit of sucking my thumb and I have a pretty big open crack in my knuckle. I’m worried that if I do have oral HSV1 from him that I might have infected my thumb and the other day after I was finished peeing I wiped and I think my knuckle might have brushed against my vulva. If i have HSV1 on my thumb, can I transmit to my genitals? I don’t have any blisters on my thumb just a deep painful crack.
It honestly doesn’t bother me that I could get HSV1 orally, I’m just so scared of getting it genitally because of the stigma and were discussing trying to have a baby and I’m worried a genital infections could harm my baby.
It wasn’t a long passionate kiss, but it was longer than just a peck on the lips. It was closed mouth kiss. I really don’t if that makes a difference in your opinion, but wanted to ass the info just in case.
“I would say if he is truly HSV 1 positive, and you haven’t gotten it in 4 years, and you’ve kissed him during that time, transmission seems far less likely.”
Do you mind clarifying why transmission seems far less likely?
Also, if an adult is truly negative for HSV1 and was infected by HSV1, is it likely that they would develop a cold sore?
He was diagnosed via Western Blot.
If he kissed me with the lesion on his lip, and it didn’t result in transmission does that make it less likely to be a cold sore? Is it possible to come in direct contact like that with a cold sore and not get infected?
So, is it possible that my body might recognize the HSV1 virus and might have some protection against it? Or is that really only with HSV2.
IF he has this genitally, is it possible that after having it for so many years, that he may not shed at all?
The next time he gets a bump in the nose, I will see if we can get him into an urgent care to get it swabbed, thank you.
