I have recently dated a girl and a few days later she tells me about her herpes outbreak.she has been having herpes aural out breaks for years every few months.
there was hardly any physical contact between us, a shared drink and a kiss on the neck.
my questions are:
1. can u get infected with that kind of a physical contact?
2. can u get blood diagnosis and find out if u r a carrier or not?
3. if I am a carrier without symptoms (or symptoms small enough to not notice), will these simptoms get worse if I have a permanent contact with worst case of herpes? (I know that u can get self-inflicted with herpes getting more parts of your body infected, so it sound to me like this is a big risk..)
4. how can she know whether she has a type 1 or 2? (she only has aural symptoms, but I know that both types can appear all over the body..)
THANKS for any info!
Do you mean oral rather than aural? Oral has to do with the mouth or speech, aural has to do with hearing.
Herpes is transmitted by skin contact. Usually the skin is only contagious during an outbreak, or just before one.
thanks for your reply, yes I ment ORAL, (excuse my misspelling...I'm not a native english speaker..)
excuse the double posting, I was sure this previous message didnt make it to the board, problems with my interent connection..
please have a look at my "more thorough" 2nd attempt at a question..(:
