Dating someone who gets cold sores
SG, did any of the guys you dated transmit the oral herpes to you? So on Friday we were talking about his cold sores again, and in the middle of the conversation, he said that when he did the std test a few months ago, that his doctor had told him that he has the hsv-1 antibodies, but that he doesnt have the virus in his body anymore. I wouldn't even think of breaking up with someone because of this. Anyone that would actually dump someone because of this just isn't educated in reality.When he told me this, I got upset, because at the time of the std test, when I asked him how it went a few months ago when he tested, he replied with 'the results came back clean,' which to me mean all was good. Now if it was someone I was already very much attached to and had been with for a while already, then I guess depending on how great the relationship is, I might try to look past it. Well it's not so much the cold sores anymore, but the MISTRUST i have in him.This is a great point, and that is the point I was trying to make.There is a difference between the reckless behavior of not telling someone you have a mortal STD like HIV (which is not as lethal as it used to be anyway, yet still lethal), and not telling someone about a virus, that is contacted by skin to skin contact. In my book it would only mean that he underestimated the level of paranoia of the other person. We live in an ecosystem and organisms are constantly feeding off of each other. (no, I'm not saying go have unprotected sex and get a lethal disease), but the world you live in doesn't have to be antibacterial.However, I find it amusing that if you tell someone you have coldsores they don't think it's a big thing, don't even think it's an STD, whereas if you told them you had type 1 genital herpes they would freak out... The majority of people get coldsores occasionally...Many people only have an outbreak perhaps once or twice a year for maybe two weeks at a time, and you can feel it coming on so you can avoid kissing at that point. As we have both said cold sores are so common we hear the word "cold sore" and think virutally nothing but we hear the words "genital herpes" and freak out.The majority of people get coldsores occasionally...
Eventho alot of you say its not a big deal, I think there is still a social stigma behind it, especially more prevalent now since they are somewhat indirectly linked to gential herpes. quote: don't know why anyone would freak out over cold sores. My ex husband got them from time to time, and other ex's as well. People can also be carriers and not even know they have the virus.

I desperately Googled my symptoms, hoping I'd discover I had adult chicken pox or something else, else.
The next morning, I took a cab to an urgent care facility where a doctor confirmed my worst fears.There's the shame you feel every time you pick up your Valtrex prescription at CVS with a long line behind you.
