I have recently developed some discomfort on my tongue an I am worried that this can be a Herpes outbreak. I have not recently kissed anyone and I have never performed oral sex on anyone. I did have protected sex with a prostitute about 11 days. Could I have contracted herpes from this encounter?? HELP.. Can genital herpes become oral Hepes???
Hi, not sure whats going on with your tongue but really not herpes related. An outbreak for someone who has herpes on the tongue is possible but not common.
No, genital hsv cannot become oral hsv as does not travel up your body.
