You can get genital herpes from oral herpes. It's not common, but it happens.

But, NOT ALL cold sores are herpes. Some are just cold sores. In that case, you can't catch herpes from them.

Have you been tested for the virus? You might just have cold sores, and not oral herpes.

yes you can get genital herpes from oral herpes. The only way is if you have a sore in your mouth and give oral sex. The sore in your mouth will be transferred to your genitals. So just dont give oral if you have a sore in or on your mouth. Same goes for your partner.

I dont know of any fast ways to get rid of it. But I heard that zinc will dry it our really fast. You can find it in lip balms. Or you can go on daily medication to help prevent outbreaks (if its herpes) Other than that just let it run its course.

Well if it's really herpes and not just cold sores, won't the op have it forever?

There are medications you can take to supress it, you'd have to ask your doctor.

You can get Herpes Simplex 1 by giving or receiving oral sex, and the same goes for Herpes Simplex 2.

Example:
If you receive oral sex and your partner has Herpes Type 1, you can get Herpes Type 1 on your genitals as well as on your lips, through kissing. The same goes for the other type, as far as I'm concerned.

I've gotten Herpes Simplex 1 on my genitals, by receiving oral sex from my parenter who had Herpes Simplex 1 on his lips. At the time of the exposure, it only took three weeks until I realised that he had passed it on to me.

It was very painful and very itchy, however, thank God, it did not last longer than one week and a few days.
Prescriptions, can be bought to easy the pain and minimize the pain. You should contact your doctor to get these prescribed.

It has been about a year now, THANK GOD, without any breakouts and I'm not on any sort of medication. I continue to pray to God, that there will not be any.
