Such thing as genetical herpes?
My friend about once every two months has blisters above his lip.. He says it's genetical herpes? Is there such a thing? Can you contract it, if so how?

no , there is no such thing as a genetic herpes infection.

oral herpes is incredibly common. it's almost always hsv1. 1 out of every 2-3 people you know has it whether they know it or not. only a small percentage of folks get obvious cold sores to know that they are infected.
