I went to the docs for the works and had bloods done and Pap smear
Had no symptoms at all
2 -3 weeks later I had symptoms  after I was told that test show I've been exposed
My mouth was tingling and tongue was inflamed and lips all dry and cranky like a bad cold and down stairs was tingling
I was devistated

From all I've read the worst time to be contaminated is when the carrier is present with symptoms
Which I have when this devastating accident happen
I didn't alarm him
I just said that's yuk go rinse your mouth
He agreed and did
I have to tell his mother what happened today
Feel sick physically from this

If you happen to have HSV1 and HSV2 then almost certainly the HSV1 will be oral and the HSV2 will be genital.

However I am wouldn't be convinced that you actually have HSV2 until you have seen the full results and interpret them correctly. Please get this paperwork.

Just like 70% of the population, you may very well have HSV1. Your grandson has the same chance of getting it, whether from his parents, uncles and aunts, any of the grandparents or the catch and kiss girl at school! All that is required is that you keep any cold sore away from other people should one emerge.
