Hi. I´m 19. On january 2012 a prostitute gave me oral sex without protection. Then in july i started with an ocd and started checking because i was worried with some symptoms. I continue with mi OCD. In december i checked for herpes and it came positive igg for type 1. I dont know if it was from the prostitute or i had from child or kiss in my adolescense ( some kiss). Never had outbreaks. I´ve read about ocular herpes or something like that, so i´m scared to have passed this from my genitals or wherever to my eye. I repeat, i didn´t have an outbreak. In december i had a mild inflamation (inflammation) of my eyelip (blepharitis could be?), anyway it was gone by 2 days,but nothing else. My question is that if i can have this on my eye and don´t know it. Or if i had it, it always shows as an outbreak or give some clear symptoms?
