The risk of acquiring HSV 1 genitally after having it orally is very small indeed. I agree that your symptoms sound more like GI stuff going on than herpes, for sure. Not sure about those bumps and what they could be, but I agree that if an antibiotic seemed be speed their demise, they were more likely bacterial something rather than a viral something.
The upset stomach-diarrhea things is just everywhere out here in Portland, and I'm guessing other places as well right now.
However, given all of that, I agree that testing again for HSV 2 wouldn't be a bad idea. Have you ever been tested for HSV 2 in the past?
Anadditional question; what is the likelihood of acquiring hsv1 genitally if I have had hsv1 orally since childhood?
I have never been tested for hsv2 but just got out of a 6 year monogamous relationship and she has never experienced symptoms of either in her life.
The main thing that concerned me was the timing of the fever as I usually never get sick. I just don't know if the upset stomach / loss of appetite was also due to the stress of possibly contracting gh.
For some stupid reason I tried to pop / remove the bump on my leg last night. It was a solid bump and did not contain any fluids. The area is now red and tender and has not scabbed over as its exactly at the crease of my crotch and upper thigh. I should have left it alone to see if it developed into a blister. I'll apply some neosporin tonight to see if it helps it heal.
I will wait to test and see what happens. Thanks for the response.
