I have been on different antibiotics for about 2 months after having 2 sinus infections and strep throat. I then got a really bad yeast infection which I usually do get after taking all that medicine. I then took a dose of Difulican and although the white discharge was gone I still had horrible itching. This is not uncommon for me sometimes it takes at least 2 doses or more for it to help. I went to my gyn. after the first dose to see if he could do something and he told me it could be herpes and not to worry??? I have been married for 7 years and although my husband has had maybe 2 cold sores since we have been together my dr., said he could have had one in his month and not known and given me herpes?? The results wont be back for 10 days and I am very upset.. How can this be.. My husband does not have anything on his mouth or penis?/ Is this even possible.. He said its 50/50..

  • It could be possible that the blister on your husbands mouth is the herpes type that is usally found on the genatilla. I don't know how likely it is though. I wouldn't worry to much about it and just wait until the results come back.

My dr thinks he saw saw3 small bumps.. I just cant imagine I could get herpes if my husband had a cold sore 2 times in his life???

  • HSV-1 and HSV-2 can be found in and released from the sores that the viruses cause, but they also are released between outbreaks from skin that does not appear to have a sore. Generally, a person can only get HSV-2 infection during sexual contact with someone who has a genital HSV-2 infection. Transmission can occur from an infected partner who does not have a visible sore and may not know that he or she is infected. HSV-1 can cause genital herpes, but it more commonly causes infections of the mouth and lips, so-called “fever blisters.” HSV-1 infection of the genitals can be caused by oral-genital or genital-genital contact with a person who has HSV-1 infection. Genital HSV-1 outbreaks recur less regularly than genital HSV-2 outbreaks check out this website: http://www.cdc.gov/std/Herpes/STDFact-Herpes.htm#Howspread

  • You can carry herpes and not have any sores.
