This forum is an un-mediated, patient-to-patient forum for questions and support regarding herpes issues such as: Herpes symptoms and treatments, causes, diagnosis, and herpes in men, tests, telling your spouse or partner.
There are alot of questions whether genital/oral herpes can be transmitted to the eyes... my question is the reverse.
For individuals with ocular herpes, is it possible trasmit it to their own/partner's genitals, mouth, eyes etc. through close proximity activities such as kissing, oral sex etc., or perhaps even contacting the individual's tears?
I am aware that HSV1 is very infectious... but given that it was diagnosed by a doctor long ago (with no recurring outbreak since diagnosis for over 9 years), I would like to know if there are many documented cases of ocular herpes spreading... and if so - how to prevent its occurence.
I've searched the internet for days with little information. PLEASE HELP!
Most people who have hsv1 orally don't get obvious cold sores to know it. As I said and jess 2nd'd, assume that the hsv1 is also oral. You could just have it in your eyes but mostly that's when it's contracted by small children, not by adults.
