Brain???
Hi,

I have read that herpes can go to the brain, just wondering how that happens because I want to make sure I do everything I possibly can to avoid that. If there is anything I can even do.

Thanks

that usually only happens when newly infected and it's far more common with hsv1 oral infections than hsv2 genital infections.  You can stop worrying.

You have a well established hsv1 oral infection yourself so this isn't a worry hibonzi.
